Or you could just wait for second edition where power level trade offs come into play. Of course to gain Protection 8 at PL 5 your Defense would be limited to +2 but, at PL 5, that's not really too bad. Get Adamantine Platemail, also known as Device 8 [Protection (Impervious)].BlackDragon1200 wrote:[EDIT]
I really like the idea of running a D&D esque game using M&M (I've been thinking of doing this myself). I would probably start them all at PL 5 (As that is the level when humans become "Super Humans"). The fact that they cannot yet obtain Full Plate could be easily explained by a lack of "money" or if you really wanted you could just bend the Power Limit rules a little bit.

1) There were lovely knives developed to deal with chain mail. Needle points that slid right through the links. Armor? What armor?

Probably, it was one or the other (actually i've seen pictures that look like chainmail and pictures that look like scale).
As for chainmail, it was primarily designed to protect against slashing and bludgening weapons and therefore was a lot less effective against any kind of piercing weapon.
