Masters of the Universe as game inspiration

No.66988386 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Much of the original art for the Masters of the Universe /toy/s was painted by Earl Norem and Esteban Maroto, who also did art for Marvel's Conan. This makes MotU look like a Kitchen Sinkier version of Sword & Sorcery. Good gaming inspiration?
Let's brainstorm:

Year 1
The He-Man archetype is a Strength hero, either the son of a king or from a jungle tribe who advances from hunter-gatherer to user of armor and other technology as he encounters it by making allies.
The Man-at-Arms is a mace-wielding smith or engineer in a loincloth and fur boots who makes the setting's advanced tech: bronze plate armor? Automatons?
Teela is a warrior demigoddess, unknowing daughter of a snake goddess or inhuman sorceress with a falcon theme.
Stratos is a winged ape from a mountain population of same. Probably have more cache if you made him a bad guy like the degenerate winged ape who killed Belit in "Queen of the Black Coast".
Beast Man is a regular ape man, who has the power to command any beast. If you treat Jungle He-Man as a Tarzan type, I see potential to trade him to Team Good for Stratos.
Skeletor is basically Thulsa Doom from Howard's King Kull. Take game rules for a lich but let them be buff.
Merman is the Deep One/Gillman archetype, standing out from his kind by being a sea-themed Summoner.
Zodac is a "cosmic enforcer", a hairy-chested dude with feet like Skeletor's, in a helmet and light body armor with a high-tech gun. They probably got around to lore explaining what a "cosmic enforcer" is, but we can be creative.
Castle Greyskull is the above-ground part of a megadungeon. Secrets of ultimate power were buried here.

You can also post maps for your settings, as well as any relevant art (either created by you or used as inspiration for your work).

Thread Questions:
>Can magic spells or reserach backfire or cause unwanted consequences in your setting?
>How royally screwed can people get around bad Wizards? Are the negative effects mostly regulated to the caster, their surroundings, or the laws of reality themselves?
>Have any new species, races, self-replicating curses, cursed magic items, or other phenomena occurred due to a bad or at least flippant Wizard?
>Have any institutions; magical, secular, religious, or otherwise, sought to regulate or limit magic use and abuse? How do they enforce these laws?

Why does it annoy so many players that women in some systems/settings are superior users of magic compared to men?

So was the Emperor always 8ft tall, or did he just grow to suit the battles during during the techno-barbarian age? And he isn't just tall like Shaquille O'neal, he's massively built

I'd imagine a unusually huge man would stand out in whatever secretive circles he entered prior to the year 10'000.

What unpopular opinions do you have about EDH, and about Magic in general? (I don't to hear "Bring back tuck" or "change hybrid" or "Seb McKinnon is overrated." Give us something actually unpopular.)

Hey guys, I noticed this place was looking kinda messy lately, so I asked a few other boards if I could borrow their cleaning crew to help. /b/ was too busy with her own board, /d/ kept molesting herself with the mophandles, and /x/ kept mumbling "the only way to be clean is to destroy them all", which was really just creepy.

But /v/ said they could send someone over...

What is your opinion on magic related to fertility and connected topics?

>Do you have any in your setting? If you do, what are its rules and limitations? If you don’t, why not?

>If you don’t have a setting of your own, what about existing settings, do you have any examples from them?
