A fan site for the Marvel Heroic Roleplaying Game by Margaret Weis Productions
Well, it was bound to happen. We here at Plot Points have been providing content for Marvel Heroic for years, and we are all big role-players, so it was inevitable that we would eventually break down and actually play the game. However, our bloggers are from all over the place, in multiple different time zones, and so even with a Hangout it would be impossible for us to coordinate a good time for all of us to sit down and try to play a game. So we did the obvious thing – we played as a PBEM.
The beauty of the PBEM format: we get to share the game as written with you! So we kept track of all of our interactions, and created a Google Docs document that you can read to see how we ran the game.
As of this writing we are still playing, so we can’t release the final result yet. However, we did want to give you something to whet your appetite for our little team’s adventure. So over the next few months we will be releasing character profiles on each member of our team, which will include the datafile for that character as we ran it, and that character’s post-adventure opinions of his or her fellow teammates. Note that the datafiles are all in the same format, which is neither the official format for Marvel Heroic nor the normal Plot Points format, but one set up specifically for this game. The information within the Datafiles are a mix of official Marvel Heroic material and home brew information.
So get ready to meet our team: the Fearsome Avengers!
Here’s the roster for the team:
