Heyas Guys 'n' Gals,
I know, I know. Some weeks back I said I won't talk about Pokémon the next few Mumblings, but that work for one Mumbling and I several new Updates were shown. I obviously had to talk about them, because they affected me emotionally!
Jokes aside, today I really don't talk about Pokémon. Well, except in the introduction, where I explain I won't talk about Pokémon today.... Anyway! Going on to...
I really enjoy Pen & Paper Games like Dungeons & Dragon, Earthdawn or The Dark Eye. Back in Schwerin, we played weekly and I'm really missing it at the moment. A few month back tried to be part of a group via Skype but the Connection wasn't good enough that I could be a functional part of the group. But my character was awesome by the way.
Recently I started watching a D&D group play an adventure on Livestream. Every single one at home connected via Skype. That made me think that it has to be possible! Also, I really got in the mood to play a Pen & Paper game once again.
You also probably know that I'm really into Superheroes. So I thought I could make a System where we can be a team of Superheroes. My Comic Artist mind started working and I already thought of a rough outline for a story. All I needed was a System to create some functional Characters and World. That turned out to be the hardest of the whole thing. But I remembered that I already looked for a system like that once. Mutants & Masterminds (M&M) is an already existing System. I found the core rules and now I'm in the process of reading through about 200 pages. I won't use this System tho', but I will base my own on it. Also, I probably take the Character sheet as a reference. Eventually, I will buy the Books of that because of what I read so far is pretty nice and not that complicated. Classic Pen & Paper games need to have all kind of Dice, but M&M only uses the D20. I don't know if I'm adding the other Dice to it or not, yet.
So obviously the Game will take some while to be a reality, but I really hope I can get all my friends to play it with me. I was never a Game Master of a group so this will be a new experience for me as well. :)
When the Game starts you'll know it, because for I also got a plan.
Keep your desks clean
