Marvel Heroic Roleplaying: The Guardians

I’ve played Marvel Heroic Roleplaying and find it most awesome. In that regard I’m running a game at Phantasm this year.

Here’s the Pitch:

It happened just before dawn. Few in the Xi’an noticed the hot, static wind that rushed through the streets. The sudden swirling of black clouds. The light rain shower that tickled the streets. But all were shook with the first apocalyptic peal of thunder as the sky opened up and spears unrelenting lightning hammered the city. 

The power grid flickers on the verge of dying, buildings have crumbled, flames lick the alleys, thousands flee and something is rumbling under the pavement threatening to crack the very foundations of this ancient city.

But all is not lost. You are of one the Guardians. Lead by Wong Fie Hung, Sun Wukong (the Monkey King) and Yi the Archer, you are China’s protectors, Earth’s Greatest Heroes. Together you will save X’ian.

It’s an adventure in Modern China with Chinese Superheroes.

I was inspired by the movie Once Upon a Time In China where Jet Li’s Wong Fie Hung  is incredibly heroic. Also I’ve had the theme stuck in my head for quite some time. I thought, what if we could freeze this and take it forward in time to battle Doctor Doom? Well this adventure’s my answer.

I did a quick look up on Marvel’s Chinese Superheroes and the ran across The Collective Man who I don’t really like so I’ll draw up my own heroes.

My goal here then is to make a group of Chinese Heroes who are every bit as epic and heroic as the Avengers. I’m going to borrow from Chinese myth, mix up a few ideas of my own and hopefully come up with something exciting.

I’ll post the characters up here as I write them.

Lemme know what you think.
