I’ve begun to take the first steps towards rewriting one of my National Novel Writing Month projects. To be specific, it is the one I wrote two years ago based off a comic idea that I have had for quite some time.
A few days ago, I posted the stats for a character to be created. Here is my character based on those stats.
I like role playing games, as you may have gathered from past blog posts. I like them because they are (usually) designed to stimulate the imagination, allowing the players to create their own story while having a little fun along the way.
Granted, I never really got a lot of chance to play many role playing games (or, RPGs if you will). Growing up, I lived in a neighborhood without a lot of kids my age, even fewer who were into role playing games. But I liked reading about the rules, the character generation, the game play. And, over the years, I have read about a lot of different games, from way back when to the present day.
What sparked me to think about this is my completion of the rule book for the latest RPG set in the Marvel universe, Marvel Heroic Roleplaying Basic Game, and how the word “basic” in the title is highly misleading.
I did this once before, but thought about it again now that I’m reading up on the rules for the new Marvel Comics Role Playing Game.
One of the things I liked about the first Marvel Super Heroes Role Playing Game was that it was possible to generate a character completely at random. I often had more fun rolling up new combinations and trying to craft the character from that. It is something that has been missing in a lot of the games that have followed.
Thus comes the challenge. I rolled up a random set of abilities and powers. If you are interested in the challenge, create a character from the powers that follow.
A while ago, I posted how I missed the old Marvel Super Heroes Role Playing Game, along with a random roll-up of a character. At that time, I said I would post what I came up with myself. Here is what I came up with.
Way back in the day, I remember checking out the old Marvel Super Heroes role-playing game. I never really got a chance to play it, since I never really had many friends who were into role-playing games of any kind, let alone the Marvel game. But I liked it, and definitely prefer it over the other super hero role-playing games that were out at that time, or have come out since.
