MHRPG – “Saudade” feelings

Saudade is one of those unique words each language have. In that case, it’s a portuguese word that represents a mix of feelings like missing, longing, grief and mourning. Saudade is usually triggered when you lose something/someone that you like or care for or when you get a glimpse of the past and the good old memories.

The funny  thing (well not haha funny) about saudade is that it is not necessarily a bad felling, it is good to feel it, and relive the good memories and moments in a good kind of melancholy. Also, sometimes, you just realize how much you like the thing that causes saudade to you when it is actually gone.

That kind of happened to us when the news that MWP was pulling the plug on Marvel Heroic RPG. But, as we all know, a RPG is never dead if we keep playing it. So that is what we did, and will keep doing.

As for my part, the game fading away caused me to want to play it baddly and get back to my writing on the blog (and that’s what I am doing now). My fellow readers, you can also expect some great news on the PP front, even with, not one, but two, Google Hang Outs to be posted.

MHRPG is dead! Long live MHRPG!

    I too was saddened to here that Disney no longer wished to support the Rpg.
    saddened but cynically unsurprised. Despite this , I will like your selves continue to play and enjoy this great game from MWp and also enjoy reading the fantastic material produced on the Plot Points blog and utilising it in Mrvl-heroes
    I have a few Brazilian friends (and Portuguese friends too ) , here in Australia some of whom have taught me some Portuguese though I was entirely unfamiliar with
    saudade that is until now. Thank you for introducing me to a beautiful word which succinctly encompasses and expresses a feeling which I would struggle to even conjure words to express in English. thank you for all the hard work which goes into producing your Blog Plot points and for sharing your passion for the game with the world. Thank you.
