Superhero character questionaires

February 15, 2007 at 12:41 pm (Superhero games)

I have been looking around for a superhero character questionaire to do for my marvel rpg character.

So a few ideas.

How did you get your powers? What do your powers look like when being used? Do you have an signature moves or poses?Do you have a costume? What does it look like? Whats it made of? Who made it?

What was the first comic book your character appeared in? What was the basic plot?

What unusual team up comic book has your character appeared in?

Do you have a secret normal identity? If so as who? Do you have a day job?

And the usual: name, ages, height, weight, skin colour, hair colour, eye colour, languages, nationality, family (parents, grandparents, siblings, children, relationship with family), schooling, occupation, hobbies, likes, dislikes, favorite food, favorite drink, means of transport, driving licence yes|no, where you live, friends, etc.

Last marvel game

February 2, 2007 at 12:57 pm (Games, Superhero games)

Last marvel game, (I’m a player in the game) we got to meet the silver surfer, iron man and spiderman. They all turned up because every symbiote in new york turned up to one appartment in district x. This happened because our symbiote was seen on tv talking about how he could take spiderman.

It seems our symbiote could not take carnage. Go figure.

The main GM I play with ran a superhero game, the Marvel universe rpg last night.

I am very much an ex-fan of marvel and superhero comics, so I was thinking of not joining this game, despite joining every other game the GM runs.

I enjoyed the game.

I took a character who it would be totally impossible for her to become the party leader, and whos viewpoint would stop a lot of tactial thinking. So its very different to my usual type of character that thinks a lot and often leads. I wanted this backseat viewpoint in case I found the game didn’t suit me and I needed to leave.

The rpg system should avoid the flaw of marvel/dc comics problem, no story, character or world consistency. My gm is too good to make those mistakes. 

The system still has the problem with the superhero characters provided, historys, being inconsistent and problematic. I don’t think it will become a problem. I can still choose with this sort of character to avoid finding out to much about any npc I wish to avoid.

In the other game that ran yesterday, an advanced cyberpunk 2050 game, I would hate to have such a viewpoint. I love engaging the npcs and leading tacticly the party.

I can understand how many rpg players who read this and comment on all the out of character thought I put in here, but I find that acceptable to avoid causeing any party-problems or damaging the game.
