A fan site for the Marvel Heroic Roleplaying Game by Margaret Weis Productions
We hope that you have enjoyed our play through of Breakout and our first installment of House Of Madness. We’ve had a blast writing and playing House of Madness, and the adventure is just gaining momentum; I for one can’t wait to see the story unfold.
We’ve been doing the PBEM for over a year now, and for various reasons many of the original players are having to bow out for personal reasons. As the number of players dwindle, that leaves me in a tight spot. I really want to release the House Of Madness Event Book as fully play-tested.
So I’m looking for two to three good players. Any new player must commit to posting at least once per week. They must choose a character not played by a previous player (though Daredevil, Iron Man, Ms. Marvel, and Red Norvell were all NPCs and are open for use). Please have a backstory ready as to why your chosen hero wants to join the Fearsome Avengers. Also, our game will continue to be posted to Plot Points at intervals, so players must consent to having their in-game posts displayed as part of our Plot Points in-game content. Players should get up to speed on the current continuity by reading our prior posts for Breakout and House Of Madness Act One Part One. We also encourage you to read Avenging Arach-Knight 1-4 to get some background on that character, since he’s not entirely mainstream Marvel, though that reading is not required. Remember when choosing your characters that this game is set just after Breakout, and takes the place of Marvel’s House of M. Events like Civil War, Secret Invasion, Avengers Vs. X-Men, etc., have not yet occurred (and might not occur), so characters introduced in those stories are probably not available, or if they are will have to have their origin stories redeveloped. Original characters created by the player are subject to Watcher approval, though a retooling of an established but generally unknown Marvel character will probably be ok (Arach-Knight is a good example of this) as is the reworking of a reformed villain into a potential hero (as was done with Crusader), though I’ll keep the latter at a minimum, as the team already has two probationary members in Crusader and Morbius. Also keep in mind that this is supposed to be the Fearsome Avengers, so try to choose characters that fit that darker, more terrifying image. Posting guidelines will be explained to the players once they have been accepted into the group. We will use Google Groups for our game posting medium – the group will be separate from the one used by the Plot Points Bullpen. Interested players should reply in the comments below or send me an e-mail directly (see our Contact Us page). Submissions will be taken up to one week after this post goes live or until all open slots are filled. I will add a note to this post once submissions for new players are closed.
NO FURTHER SUBMISSIONS – SELECTION PROCESS CLOSED.
Selected players will be contacted individually by no later than Friday, July 8th. Thanks to all for your interest and continued support of Plot Points.
