The Fan-Voted Quarter Quell Part 2

Alright, when we last left off our superheroes, they discovered a zombie plot going down in Serah’s own circus. They took a while to get together, but now that they have, they’re going to investigate the abandoned funhouse that seems to have all the answers they need regarding the zombies.

I noticed that I have relied too heavily on Location Crafter. From this point on, the next few scenes will be created with the other Drivers.

First scene will be made by Covetous Poet. Continue reading

The Fan-Voted Quarter Quell Part 1

Alright, today we’ll begin the two-part Fan-Voted Quarter Quell, in which I play Marvel Heroic Roleplaying. To recap, I have three characters: Spider-Man, Serikus, and Dr. Maggio. What will they do? How will they meet? Well, let’s use our most voted Driver to answer that: Location Crafter.

Unfortunately, this is going to be my first drive with it, so I’m not sure how well I’ll do this. To remedy this, I’ll test out the system with a prebuilt Location by virginian_john. The scenario is also a nice starting scenario for our guys before we have to get the ball rolling. Let’s do this. I’m gonna roll up a scene for the three of them and see how well they can mesh together. Continue reading

Stat It: The Fan-Voted Quarter Quell

Alright, let’s begin this fan-voted Quarter Quell. To recap, our RPG of choice is Marvel Heroic Roleplaying. I picked this over Heroine because of there being a resurgence of Superhero stuff. Films, TV series, even comic books are getting more attention nowadays. I also picked it because of a personal reason:

It’s the first roleplaying game I played with others. To make a long story short, I was new to my city and had just got started exploring the downtown area. There, I spotted a Friendly Local Gaming Store that had been going strong for a while. They were advertizing a four hour game demo session and I decided to go.

It was an unforgettable experience, since, as stated before, it was my first RPG that I played with other people. Other RPGs I played, I played solo, only to understand the rules and have a bit of fun along the way. The RPG we played was Marvel Heroic Roleplaying, and I instantly fell in love with the system. And thus, that’s what we’ll be playing today.

But we’re going to need some characters for this. This is where I’ll go in a different direction than usual. I’m gonna play three characters.

Putting a Spotlight on someone else’s Actual Play: Marvel Heroic Roleplay

Hey everyone. This isn’t gonna be a major update, just a recommendation for someone else’s Actual Play. This is a video Let’s Play of Marvel Heroic Roleplay with Mythic GM Emulator. I absolutely love the Cortex system and I hope to one day do a few of them solo. It also uses the Flash GM Emulator, which is essentially Mythic doing things automatically for you, which is always a benefit.

Part one shows off the GM Emulator while Part two shows off more of the MHR in progress. The nice part about this all is that at one point, the player actually asks the GM Emulator a GM-related question. In other words, he’s using the GM Emulator to emulate a GM. Give it a watch if you like Mythic. There’s at least two more parts to this series, so check them out as well.

While we’re on the subject on Marvel Heroic Roleplaying, check this post out too.
