Marvel Multiverse Role-Playing Game Rolls Out New 1.3 Game Update

It's finally here! Find out all the new changes that were implemented in the latest updates for the official Marvel RPG!

Marvel Multiverse Role-Playing Game Playtest Rulebook Update 1.3

The newest updates are in! The Marvel Multiverse Role-Playing Game continues to grow and expand, all thanks to the feedback provided by our dedicated players. We’ve clarified some rules, and continued to streamline the game in Update 1.3. Here’s a quick summary.

Changes in the 1.3 Game Updates for the Marvel RPG include:

  • Might is now Melee. The new name reflects the ability’s purpose better.
  • The number of ability points a character gets per rank has changed. These are mostly much lower.
  • We’re getting rid of Action Modifiers, which were the ability score plus Rank. Now we’re just using the ability score.
  • Defense scores are now 10+ the ability score.
  • Health and Focus are now 25x Resilience/Vigilance.
  • The initiative modifier is now the character’s Vigilance score.
  • Running Speed is now 5 + 1 for every 5 points of Agility, modified by Size.
  • Effects from powers, traits, weapons, or any other item that add to or subtract from damage multipliers do not stack.
  • Add the character’s ability modifier to damage rolls.
  • Damage Reduction now affects the attacker’s damage multiplier rather than being a flat number.
  • Characters can heal their Health or Focus at any time by spending a Karma point.
  • Weapons now add to the damage multiplier. We also added rules for grenades.
  • We updated the falling damage rules.
  • We added a number of reaction maneuvers.
  • Characters who are not heroic can gain and spend Karma but do not start with any.
  • We altered the number of power sets and powers a character can have per
  • rank. This mostly went up.
  • We clarified how concentration works with powers.
  • We clarified a bunch of powers and added a few new ones too.
  • We changed the number of extra traits a character gets per rank.
  • We changed a number of traits to tags and made the number of tags you can have unlimited.
  • We removed a couple traits and turned Combat Trickery into a power.
