Yesterday, I announced my intention to run a weekly Marvel Heroic Roleplaying campaign starting in January 2014. “From Secret to Civil War” takes advantage of the relative wealth of fanmade material. One of the many advantages of MHRP in my opinion is the ease with which players can enter / exit the game. (Which is great for this point in life when you have active adults who’d like to make the greater commitment to play, but who have to manage competing claims on their attention – like jobs, significant others and children, etc.)
Personally, Monday or Thursday nights would be ideal — but will not be a deal-breaker on my end. (My wife is a singer, and those are her rehearsal nights.) What I’m looking for is a small pool of players who can commit to playing a couple weeks at a time – but certainly not every week into perpetuity. (Unless they so wish.) Troupe play will be the order of the day.
I hope to start the campaign with Secret War sometime the first week in January. My guess is that Event will run about three weeks. If you are interested, tweet me @laughingmad.
Back in April 2013, when Margaret Weis Productions lost their Marvel license, I discontinued posting on my blog. (Like most fans of the game, I went into an extended period of mourning for the game.) Thanks to Google+, I have been able to play the game some since. But now is not the time for me to perform an autopsy about how the game failed commercially. (Time for that later . . .)
This past month, I decided to start work on preparing an ongoing campaign for me to start running in January 2014 via Google+. This has led me to decide to resurrect this blog. (Truth be told, I had barely started writing this blog when the license was pulled.) I have pulled my previous content (about six datafiles), and will be revising and reposting them when complete.
My campaign will be The Road to Civil War; my plan is to start with Nick Fury’s Secret War (as presented by Plot Points), run through some original and fanmade content, and then culminate in Civil War itself. I anticipate having to create or modify content as I go along — which (of course) I will then share with everyone on this blog.
