NEW EVENT: Council of Four!


Howdy, True Believers!

How about that season finale of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., huh? And Arrow too!

Now to move on to something completely unrelated, it has been a while since I last posted to Plot Points, but that is because I have been working on something very special for all of you fellow MHRPGers out there.

My last post featured my first attempt at creating a MHRPG Event, titled X-Men: Avenged, featuring the classic “Blue and Gold” X-Men from the 90’s as made popular by the The X-Men Animated Series and the actual X-Men comic book series written by Chris Claremont and drawn by Jim Lee. (Head on over and check it out, if you  please!) With this new Event, I take a leap into the present and focus on the heroes of Marvel NOW!


When the Reed Richards of an alternate reality comes home and finds his Earth destroyed and all those he loved dead, he vows to create a new, perfect world where nothing bad will ever happen again. Gathering three other like-minded individuals from other realities, Reed created the Council of Four and enacted his plan to create his perfect reality. Play as your favorite Marvel NOW! heroes as you embark on an adventure unlike any other as you travel across the Multiverse, saving other realities and your own from the diabolical machinations of the Council of Four. Featuring over 80 all-new Watcher and Player datafiles, this 189-page Event boasts a collection of heroes and villains unlike any MHRPG Event before it, complete with non-stop action and high-stakes combat. Will the combined effort of the Multiverse’s mightiest heroes be enough to defeat the Council of Four? Or is the Multiverse doomed for destruction?

I hope you enjoy this new Event. Please let me know what you think and if any of you plan on chronicling your playthrough, let me know! I’d love to see how you  adventure through the Multiverse.

Excelsior, True Believers!

Edit: After playing this game with a group of my own and seeing groups play online, I’ve noticed that the New Avengers (or Illuminati) lend themselves very well to this story of reality-hopping and alternate Earth destruction. If you and your crew would like to include the Illuminati in your play session. Here’s a supplement you can print out and use! Enjoy!

    Unbelievable. It needs a bigger page instead of this short footnote here.

    The amount of work to create such a thing can not be imagined.
    Thank you very much.

      I appreciate that, Gideon. It is always nice to know your hard work is appreciated.

      I hope you and your gaming group enjoy this Event!

      I have some other ideas for Events. I just need to find the time to create them!

    This is great! As in I am print and binding it to bring to my table.

    I wish more of these events would compile their material into a pdf,……and that there were more events.

      That’s great, thadrine! I hope you and yours enjoy it. If you can, let me know how it goes and what y’all think.

      As a writer, it’s always great to hear that your hard work is appreciated. Especially when it’s done for free. Lol

      I have more ideas for more Events, but with my first year of teaching going on right now, the next installment of my Events will be a little stalled.

      Enjoy playing and execelsior!

      Awesome! Let me know what you think of it, Alvin. And if you can, chronicle it somewhere so I could see how you and your group fares in the battle for the Multiverse! 🙂
