To say that I’ve been on a bit of a Marvel kick lately would be an understatement. I’ve always loved the Marvel universe, but lately I’ve taken it to the next level.
Some time last year the Marvel Heroic RPG was launched, and I took interest. It came from the same company who made the Serenity RPG a few years back, which I used to prepare an ill-fated campaign. Since I wasn’t involved in any tabletop gaming at the time (save an on and off RuneQuest campaign my brother was running) I decided to pick up Marvel Heroic and see what all the fuss was about.
Thus, Marvel 512 was born.
Marvel 512 is the story of the heroes of Earth-512, an alternate universe that mostly parallels Earth-616 but with some slight differences around the events of House of M. The story picks up shortly after the mutant Decimation.
The players, so far, have formed a new super-team called the Southern (Comfort) Avengers, based in Dallas, Texas. After each issue (play session) I’m going to try and write up a brief summary of what happened and post it here. That way the stories can be archived, and potential new players can quickly catch up on the history of the world.
Currently we have four players, with two or three more planning to join. I’m aiming to have weekly-ish sessions, and so far they’ve been about 4 hours each. I have at least 25 sessions of content planned out, so this game will be around for quite a while. We play at my place in Austin, but we’ve tested playing over Skype and it has worked pretty well so far. Interested in joining? Let me know and we’ll get you set up!
