This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Mad Musings: Marvel Super Heroes
« on: December 11, 2021, 11:46:31 PM »
One of the most successful licensed RPGs of all time known for its devout fan base and almost unheard of collaboration between TSR and Marvel.

I have a lot of fond memories of this game, and my friends and I played the hell out of it in our pre-teen and early teen years.  When we got a little older, we eventually moved on to Champions, because its rules provided much more opportunity for min-maxing (yes, I was a teenage min-maxer.)

I also played it as a teenager, and I really liked it then, probably because there were few games and you idolized every game that fell into your hands

I love old school ('60's-2000) Marvel, and FASERIP is a neat game, but it has enough limitations and flaws that I'm never satisfied with it (it seems like curse of every Marvel RPG to be flawed).

Every so often I tease it apart, and attempt to craft a "better" rules system from it, because of the massive amount of vintage setting material. One day I'll crack it, you mark my words, Richards!
I'm a middle aged guy with a lot of free time, looking for similar, to form a group for regular gaming. You should be chill, non-woke, and have time on your hands.
