So when recently reading an Excalibur Graphic Novel I came across a biography for Marvel’s version of the famed Wizard Merlin. Multiple times it mentioned his experience with “the time travelling Doctor”. This immediately got my interest and I found his file on the official Marvel wiki. In the GA Chat we began speculating about how he might be stated up for the Marvel Heroic Roleplaying Game, though in only a half serious manner.
As the conversation turned to other topics both Brent and I kept thinking about the concept of a Doctor Datafile and each created our own file. Both owe credit to our conversation, with others, in the chat room, which accounts for some similarities.
So without further ado, here is yet another Datafile for The Doctor. Click the image for a full printable version.
Here’s a modern Doctor, statted up for Marvel Heroic Roleplaying:
