I Wanna Be A Mutant!

I want to run/play-in a Marvel Superheroes RPG again.

I kinda knew that going to watch X-Men 3 would do this to me :p

The film was good - although it had quite a few surprises (which I may feel the need to comment on behind a **SPOILERS** cut in a future post :p.

If you do and see it PLEASE stay through the credits. There's a little extra bit right at the very end which is worth the wiat. Sadly only Toos and myself (and a couple of cleaners who'd come in by then)  stayed to see it as the rest of the cinema had already emptied.

Enjoyed. Happy now. Want to do some superhero roleplaying...

Bah, nobody told us :(
Missed that bit, any chance of telling me what it was?

I'll pop it behind a spoilers note when I do the review but in the meantime if you pop over to Rhona's LJ I know she's got a post about it.

You at the shop today? There's a chance we might swing by later on and was wondering.

Not today.

Dom is coming round to mine at 2pm for some wargaming. What are you and Civi up to later?

I'll have a word with Dom when he arrives but we might be up for playing a multiplayer game or two later on and then you both can come over, watch Doctor Who and have a game of something!

Let me know (preferrably by text as I'm not sure how much longer I'll be checking LJ before I head downstairs...)

We did have the plan of heading off to Greenwich way to see X3 with the sunday Deadlands crew and crash there. DOn't know what's happening re that though, or when it might be.

I was a little disappointed to tell you the truth. Beast ruled, but the rest felt a little ... flat. You could tell Bryan Singer had left, sadly. Will have to write a mini-review of it myself.

It wasn't the best of the three but it was better than I thought it was going to be and also had loads of little nods for the fans which was really cool :p

Whilst waiting for the bit after the credits, I noticed that Psylocke was credited. Did you spot her? I can't say I did ...

Yeah I noticed her in the credits too... and no, I certainly didn't see her in the film. I actually exclaimed and mentioned that to my cinema buddy at the time.

Would be nice to see what Psylocke looked like in the film.

Can't say I recall seeing her, but according to wikipedia she was one of the group recruited alongside Callisto, Arclight and that spiky one. Shame, she was always one of my favourite characters ...

I remember Marel brought out a card type RPG with a few books, but stoped produsing it befor they published all they had intended. Hmmmm... wonder why I can get them from.

I think you're talking about the 'Marvel Saga System' that TSR published in the early(ish) 90's. That was a card based system (they also released a Dragonlance Saga game too).

I've no idea what it was like as I never played it (and I'm certain I sold my copy if I did ever buy it in the first place). My favourite Marvel RPG was the Advanced Marvel set that TSR published in the mid-80's.

YEah, that's the one. I remember quite liking the charatcer creation system. Never got round to playing it. Considering my character, 'Ferel Boy', has passed some what into ledgend, that is kind of ironic.

Who needs decent character backgrounds when you have amazing theme tunes?

Contact me off LJ (if you have my email?) and I'll let you know. I don't want to put it on this thread because not everyone has seen the film. If I manage to get round to writing a review I'll mention it there and plaster it with loads of **SPOILERS** notes :p
