A fan site for the Marvel Heroic Roleplaying Game by Margaret Weis Productions
The Spider-Verse event of the last year was pretty epic and introduced many worlds we had never seen or just hadn’t seen for a long time in the Marvel comics. It was a truly fantastic, world-jumping story that brought spider-people together to face the greatest threat they had ever known: The Inheritors. These predatory villains wanted nothing more than to consume the Spider-Totems one by one. We already posted a bunch of wonderful datafiles from this event, but there is just so much good stuff we could cover that we had to revisit it again. We’ll have more datafiles of Spider-Totems in the coming weeks and also the rest of the Inheritors, but first we wanted to touch on the various worlds that the Web of Life and Destiny had woven to connect these Totems and that the Inheritors had claimed as their hunting ground.
The Marvel Multiverse has taken a pretty series blow with the Secret Wars storyline that is unpacking right now, but the Spiders traversed the web of the multiverse as many other heroes and villains of the Marvel Universe have done before. Here is a listing of some of the more prominent worlds that the Spiders visited and some specific distinctions to include when facing challenge in those particular worlds. This is just a start, but a good way to think about what makes a world unique and how players (or Watcher characters) could take advantage of the unique elements of a world as they battle one another.
On top of that, here are two item power sets for the cloaking device created by the Superior Spider-Man (Doc Ock) and the portal devices utilized by Spider-UK. These should give the spiders a fighting chance, but we’ll just have to see if they can survive the unending onslaught of the Inheritors.
