Rogues Gallery: Nightmare Child (PDF)

This week we wrap up our Rogues Gallery PDF series for Mutants & Masterminds. Look for more about a Rogues Gallery compilation in an upcoming Ronin Round Table.

Nightmare Child

A string of mysterious murders in Freedom City, and the police have no suspects, and no evidence, apart from the broken and discarded children’s toys left behind at the scene like some kind of grim calling card. Who—or what—is the “Nightmare Child,” what is driving it to kill, and how can the heroes find and stop it before it claims its next victim?

Two New PDFs: Rogues Gallery and Fantasy AGE Encounters

Rogues Gallery: The Dealer

Rogues Gallery: The Dealer

Rogues Gallery: The Dealer

Once a small-time crook, the man now known as the Dealer has spent his life bringing misfortune to others to stave off a supposed family curse! When he cheated his way into some winnings, he used them to become a super-villain to see what would happen with his curse if he could really spread his bad luck around!

 

Fantasy AGE Encounters: Drive for Justice

Fantasy AGE Encounters: Drive for Justice

Rogues Gallery: The Mesmerist (PDF)

The Mesmerist

The Mesmerist

The Mesmerist

Restless academic James Desmond spent a semester abroad, and stumbled across the long-discredited teachings of Franz Mesmer. Desmond experimented with Mesmer’s techniques, and found that in his hands, they were effective! Using his uncanny power of illusion, he reinvented himself as “The Mesmerist,” a showman capable of seemingly impossible feats and thrills, delivered with Vegas spectacle and glamour. Flush with fame and wealth, and quite capable of rewriting memories and supernaturally concealing his actions, the Mesmerist now steals what he cannot buy, leaving behind mysteries without any clues.
Rogues Gallery … villains galore! Each Rogues Gallery entry includes a complete super-villain profile and character sheet with Mutants & Masterminds Third Edition game information. It also includes the villain’s background and various adventure hooks to use the character in your own game. Each entry is illustrated and, as a bonus, includes the villain’s game information in Hero Lab format, so you can import it right into the character management software and use it in your game (or modify it as needed) right away. Where else can you get a super-villain for less than the price of a cup of coffee? It’s positively criminal!

Ronin Roundtable: M&M Style

grr5510e_mutantsandmastermindsthirdeditiondeluxeheroeshandbook_1_1024x1024Our recent yearly Green Ronin summit covers a lot of ground, including plans for all of the company’s current game-lines moving forward into the coming year. The remainder of 2016 and the start of 2017 are a bit of a turning point for Mutants & Masterminds, reflecting the maturity of the third edition line. In particular, by early to mid-2017, we’ll have covered the essential rules and game materials for M&M with the Hero’s Handbook, Power Profiles, Gadget Guides, and the Gamemaster’s Guide, the essential setting material for Earth-Prime with Emerald City, the Cosmic Handbook, the Atlas of Earth-Prime, and the new edition of Freedom City, plus plenty of foes in Threat Report, Rogues Gallery, and the Supernatural Handbook. Add to that a complete and compatible summary of the DC Universe in our four DC Adventures books, and that’s quite a collection!

So, we want to revisit how we present Mutants & Masterminds products in addition to what types of products we’re offering. There’s a lot of material out there for the game (and will be even more in the months to come) so the big question on our agenda is: How do we make M&M easier to use and friendlier to new readers going forward while retaining the great library of material we already have? A lot of the answer to that question is not just what products we do, but how we do them, the style and presentation of the game.

In particular, I’m looking at the stat blocks for M&M and finding ways they can be more user-friendly, informative, and attractive while still conveying everything you need to know about the character in game terms. This goes for our full-size and detailed stat blocks as well as our smaller formats, presented in-line with text. Everything is on the table here: the way things are arranged, the order in which traits are presented, use of color or icons, and so forth. The key limit is that it has to convey essentially the same information and remain compatible with our other third-edition material. Ideally, we also want the presentation to require only the Hero’s Handbook—while we could certainly save space by pulling powers and gadgets wholesale out of supplements, we don’t want you to have to have Power Profiles or Gadget Guides to understand and play the game!

You’ll likely be hearing more about this process as time goes on and ideas percolate but, for now, we’d also like to hear from you. Visit our forums and tell us ways in which M&M products can be more useful, user-friendly, and easy to reference during game-play in your own games, keeping in mind the guidelines that we’re sticking with the current edition and we want the new products we publish in the coming year to be compatible with what we’ve done thus far. You can also drop us an email at custserve@greenronin.com or send us a message via our Facebook page.

I’m looking forward to showing everyone all of the plans we’ve made for Mutants & Masterminds and to giving it the look and style that will last it for years more to come!

Two New PDFs: Rogues Gallery and Pathfinder Short Cut

We’ve got two new PDFs for sale today–one for Mutants & Masterminds and one for Pathfinder/Freeport!

The Sportsman and Princess Poison

The Sportsman and Princess Poison

Rogues Gallery: Sportsman & Princess Poison

The original Sportsman and Princess Poison were villains in the 1970s who saw their villainous careers ending in the ‘80s (before it became dangerous to be a villain) and settled in Emerald City to raise their children, the new Sportsman and Ms. Scorpion. But a parent’s work is never done and with their children now “on the scene,” they might have to put on their old supersuits again.

Rather than vague concepts like strength or ancestry, these patrons are specific powers tied to Freeport’s campaing world, such as the King in Yellow and the elven hero of legend Thodomer Windgress, but appropriate for use in any Pathfinder Roleplaying Game-compatible campaign setting. In addition to defining the background of these patrons and the bonus spells they grant, this product talks about how other react to witches serving these patrons, and presents unique hexes available only to witches with specific patrons.
