Re: Just checking to see if M&M is still living.

I ask this because you have not been updating the Mutants & Masterminds website for several months, even when there is news. Having the website of your game line stagnant does not inspire confidence. I think you'll find that they are updating the website a bit at the moment, what with the atomic th...

Anyone have a suggestion?

Re: Why is 3rd Edition so much better then 2nd Edition

If the actual combat starts (with maps and miniatures and all that stuff), I would argue that Supes and the Flash are a bit harder to stop than Batman Which would actually be wrong: If you are committing a crime in Metropolis you invest in magic defences & doo-hickies, or pull the same trick Batman...

Re: 3rd Edition Changes to the Freedomverse?

Maybe she was in the future and then came back to our time? I'm just throwing guesses out there... I don't think so, I think its straight from one reality to another (being that she's Centurions daughter from another universe, who he sent to the Freedomverse to escape the Terminus invasion of that ...

Re: [Green] Arrow TV Series

I'll be honest, I am completely bored with Arrow now. The Slade plot just went on for to long & there was just to much inaction in those recent episodes.... To much of the covert "everything is a secret" nonsense, it got in the way of actually telling an interesting story about characters actually d...

Re: Atlas of Earth-Prime: Canada

Edit: it doesn't matter, I am not a fan. I found it off putting, out of character for the intended tonal setting & flies in the face of the very idea of a public superhero team.... Its one of the elements I found to be very slap dash in its execution. The characters had some potential, but a lot of ...

Re: Atlas of Earth-Prime: Canada

Well, it's not the best piece of art. You're right that the costuming for Team Canada is fairly generic. Big Thunder and Miss Canada look like they're wearing Alpha Flight's laundry day uniforms, the Opportunist has a fairly basic speedster -- which isn't great but is probably the best of the lot -...

Re: 3rd Edition Changes to the Freedomverse?

Yeah, I believe they've also updated the Atoms and Max has a fiancée, though otherwise they're just a little bit older. I'm looking forward to the 3rd Ed Freedom City book. Apparently Steve is working on it right now. Then can I assume you missed the reference to Centurions daughter; Centuria in th...

Re: Why do superhero novels suck

Just finished Please Don't Tell My Parents I'm a Supervillain . It was good. It's a straightforward exploration of a super-powered world, no deconstructions or subversions. It's also pretty solidly a kid's book. Yes, the occasional person gets hurt, and there's beaucoup property damage, but ultimat...

Re: Why is 3rd Edition so much better then 2nd Edition

Not to mention that tactical combat is kind of thrown out of the window if you have characters who can effectively be wherever they want or just blow through any obstacle. There are a lot of extreme variables in a superhero game. That one is not exactly true Doresh.... The more I play & run games, ...

Re: Atlas of Earth-Prime: Canada

I'd be more surprised if there wasn't a somewhat psychotic member of any given national team who also dabbled in a more covert world when required. Kinda like the Comedian from Watchmen. That could have worked had it not been in the public eye, but even the Comedian only killed when had had a reaso...

Re: Why is 3rd Edition so much better then 2nd Edition

^_^ Although, I would argue that the general tenor of the thread suggests that the topic should be titled "Is 3rd Edition better than 2nd Edition?" with the answer being a shaky maybe depending on who you spoke to. An what exactly one means by "better." Its certainly different than 2E, but I'm not ...

Re: Why is 3rd Edition so much better then 2nd Edition

I want to like 3e, but since I've owned it, I've played it exactly once and it wasn't really any improvement over 2e. OTOH, I had several dozen sessions of 2e that were quite enjoyable. I think my main issue with 3e is that I just didn't feel that the changes were a real improvement, and just break...

Re: Atlas of Earth-Prime: Canada

I totally get that. Whenever I decide to add a French Canadian former mutant gang leader raised by a werewolf circus to my game, I always make certain that the Government bureaucracy overseeing the superhero team they're on is as authentic as possible, because I wouldn't want my players to have to ...
