I was about 10 or so when I started on 2nd Edition. It actually wasn't my first game; my first was Marvel Super Heroes.
Thats pretty cool I didnt know Marel had a game out like that. I have seen some stuff like whitewolf and all sorts of other things but not that. I think it would be pretty fun to do a Super heroes game one day! thank you for sharing
I had a D&D group in high school, although we ended up playing more ShadowRun and Rifts (when the guys weren't wrestling in my living room). I preferred the Steve Jackson GURPS - that covered everything in every genre.
I played a little bit in high school and enjoyed it. I don't play anymore though because I've never been very good at the role playing aspect of it. My favorite moment playing was when one of my friends decided they were going to blindly shoot an arrow at a dragon flying overhead.
I only played it once but I think I probably could have gotten into it.
Sorta seems like the type of game I'd go nuts for. xD
(total fantasy RPG fanatic, some of the best games have elves and wizards =) )
For super hero rpgs, I'd recommend Blood of Heroes. It can be hard to find, but it's a nicely balanced system that covers a lot of powers. I would look up the excel file that someone made to make characters though, character generation sucks. Once you have a character, it's a lot of fun.
