In the interview itself, Forbeck described how Marvel’s dice will be used to determine when something “surprising” occurs during the course of the game. “One of the best parts of the game is the new dice mechanics,” Forbeck said. “Three standard six-sided sides, one of which is Marvel’s dice. If you get a 1 in Marvel dice, you get a fantastic result and something surprising happens. If you get a 6 in the other two dice, or a result of 6-1-6, which is a definitive fantastic run, which is even better. It combines that with our rules for advantages and problems, which offer dice runs, and end up with many ways to make incredible things happen. During the game, maximizing fun ».
Forbeck also mocked the creation of characters, and pointed out that players will combine skill scores with those of an archetype. “Marvel is an acrostic in which each of the initials represents one of the six skill scores in the game: strength, agility, resilience, surveillance, ego and logic,” Forbeck said. «The scores for standard people in each of these skills vary from -4 to 4, and the scores for characters with superpowers can vary much more. There are a number of different archetypes in the game that describe what kind of character you are playing: a striker, a blaster, etc. When you combine the character’s skills with the archetype of it, that gives you even greater numbers for your attacks and also for your defenses. In this way, the characters can face face to face with others of their own range ».
