I'm interested in playing a TSR Marvel game. Does anyone know that system? I've never played it or any other supers game.

It's been a while, but I've played it. There've been two or three iterations of it too. The one I used was the FASERIP version from TSR that used an action table for skill resolution.

There's also Mutants and Masterminds that is based around the d20 system, but tweaked a bit to make it a little easier to use. If you can find someone willing to GM either of these, I'll play!

The only super game I have played is DC Heros.

I've tried that one when it first came out years ago. We never got past character creation though.

I actually played a bit of DC Heroes; I liked that system a lot, and that wasn't hurt by the fact that I seem to like more of their characters than Marvel's... but I do like a good number of Marvel heroes as well. So when a friend of mine cobbled together a joint system using BOTH worlds, I was all over that. I played one session as Green Lantern, Batman and Robin, and Thor.

I totally kicked butt, too! smiley_karate.gif

Cool blink.gif . Other than X-Men, I don't really like Marvel. Over all, I prefer DC.

Yeah the character creation can be a little painful, but teh system itself is pretty good. Not as simple as D6, but still pretty easy.

In addition to X-Men and Spider-Man, I always liked Quasar. In my opinion he was kinda like Marvel's answer to Green Lantern. Different premise, but same overall concept.

It's a good system and you can get just about all the books online at this site...

http://www.classicmarvel.com/

They've got tons of magazine articles and alternate rules as well, so check out those pages too.

If you get a game going, let me know. I'd certainly be interested in getting in on it.
