A fan site for the Marvel Heroic Roleplaying Game by Margaret Weis Productions
Your editor-in-chief is Mark Meredith. Mark was a writer for Margaret Weis Production’s Marvel Heroic Roleplaying Game, contributing to the Civil War: 50 State Initiative and Civil War: X-Men supplements. Not only does he write here at Plot Points, he is also the editor-in-chief and writer of Dice Monkey, a roleplaying blog that covers a wider variety of topics than here.

Contributing Editor Andrew Gatlin is new to the blogging world. As in, this is the first blog he has written for that people actually read. He is a husband and father of two, who considers himself a well-rounded geek. He makes his home in the north-western reaches of Alabama, near the “sprawling metropolis” of Florence.
Senior Writer Felipe Mascarenhas comes from the savage Amazonian Jungles of Brazil. Being a major Marvel geek and RPG nerd he was astonished when those two passions came together with the release of Marvel Heroic Roleplaying. He is also an amateur game designer and podcasts every now and then (in Portuguese) at Terceira Terra.
You can find Felipe on Twitter at @felipenerdcore or by e-mail at felipealm [at] gmail [dot] com.
Senior Writer Seamus Corbett excels at one thing: chasing the hero up a tree and throwing rocks at him, turning the screw until the wood splits, or just making a bad situation worse. This gift has served him well as a GM for more than a few systems over the years, and he brings it now to Marvel Heroic Roleplaying and Plot Points. He is raising two boys in this great tradition, proud of the fact that his brood can name more heroes on the comic shop shelf than most others who can actually read.
Seamus can be found on Twitter as @OppR2nist, and can be reached by email at sotp_seamus [at] yahoo [dot] com.
Contributor Joshua Unruh is a novelist, blogger, and freelance writer. It took the death of Marvel Heroic to get him involved in the fan community, but he’s in it up to his eyeballs now. He’s been reading superhero comics for thirty years and a a tabletop roleplayer for twenty-five years. Despite nostalgic love for TSR Marvel, Marvel Heroic is the first superhero RPG that he’s enjoyed as a superhero game.
Contributor Ken Hart once interviewed a Doctor (Who, that is) for Marvel, promoted D&D clerical heresy in Dragon Magazine, and put a leather jacket on Anubis in the cyberpunk anthology Foreshadows: The Ghosts of Zero. He also wishes Frank Brunner had drawn more than two issues of Howard the Duck. He is the proud father of a brilliant nerd girl, Power Rangers fan and budding Marvel Heroic player.
Contributor Joe Stroup discovered comic books as a kid and once he started the X-men series he has never been the same. He’s been into RPGs since college (mostly D&D) and when Marvel Heroic came out (right around the time the Marvel movies starting getting really good) he was immediately in love. He played in StephenChast’s online Age of Apocalypse game and loves introducing new people to RPGs.
Contributor David White was raised on Batman: The Animated Series and the old X-Men cartoon of the 90’s. As such, he is quite nerdy and grew up with a love for comic books and the heroes therein. David started playing DnD 3.5 in High School and found he loved that as well. When he saw a roleplaying game featuring his favorite Marvel heroes, he bought it STAT! David hopes you will help keep this great game alive at your table.
Follow David at his blog: Same Kind of Nerdy As Me or at Facebook or Twitter @MrBananaSocks. David also produces an actual-play City of Mist podcast. David can be emailed at dbw08a [at] acu [dot] edu.
Contributor Jayson Jolin began his superhero role-playing experience with TSR’s Marvel Super Heroes, and has done a fan rewrite of the game with a twist of Fate added in he calls Marvel Nth Edition. Although he only has D6 Drawing Specialty he still enjoys that hobby, particularly when he can pair it with his gaming. He’s done fan cards for use with The Good, The Bad, And The Munchkin, and a TSR Marvel RPG-inspired Universal Table for use with Marvel Heroic. He is a husband and father. His favorite comic is Atomic Robo.
Contributor Michael Dismuke began his geek-foolery with TSR’s Marvel Super Heroes in 1990 at age 15 and converted to Marvel Heroic in 2012. He is a self-published comic writer having made appearances at San Diego Comic Con. His debut comedy manga, Gamemasters, is currently featured on Comixology (an Amazon Company). Michael gifts his band of players (28+ years going strong) with artistic covers and complete novel-esque write-ups for their gaming stories, which is why they worshipfully adore him and speak his name with fear and trembling. (Some of the last sentence is not true.)
