So, Mutants and Masterminds is a superhero-based tabletop RPG. Like D&D but with superheroes.
I like it because it's got incredible flexibility; you can make almost any character you can think of.
The downside is that doing so can be pretty complicated, and require a lot of number crunching. Although personally I kindof enjoy that too.

Anyone ever played it?

If I were to try to get a game together, would any of you be interested?
I don't think he needs to be immortal. I think all he needs to do is to write the right story. Because some stories do live forever.

Sounds pretty awesome from what I'm reading. Flexibility and creativity are king in roleplay.

I'm in.

Yeah, and I feel like handing this group of nerds the keys to a really creative system like this is going to result in a hilariously diverse and fun group of superheroes. ^__^

I'm working on a rough plotline as we speak. All I'll really need aside from this is a dice roller.

Well, you got this, real simple

You also have this, which seems a little more "all-in-one", but wants you to sign in

Ideally, it would be nice to have something with a log. Otherwise I suppose I could do all the dice rolls for people, but that's just no fun. The honor system makes me nervous, although this would possibly be the group of folks to do it with.

I wonder how hard it would be to embed a dice roller into the forums? I think perhaps I'll go say something in the suggestion section. >__>

Of course I roll nothing but 20s.

I /like/ critical hits. :lol:


But yeah, I see where you're coming from. Hopefully we can get something implemented on the boards. That would be cool [and ever so nerdy]

It can be our new method for solving disputes, too.

Aside from this, though, we should totally recruit some folks to play this with us. <___<
I've got a basic plot laid out already. Working on antagonists.

Don't worry, when they see us having fun, they'll want in.

They'll ALL want in.

*sinister laugh*


All in all, though, I'm pretty excited for this. If need be I'll find some random nerds to rp with us.

Awesome. I think perhaps when I finish the campaign I may just invite a couple people individually.
I really do want to see what the nerdforum peoples could do with this system. XD

Did you look up the rulebook?

I was thinking 3rd edition. I think I played 2nd edition before, and 3rd has some really good balance tweaks in it as compared to the version I played before.

For one thing, they've made the invincible hobo impossible.
[My friends and I designed a character -just for fun- that was impossible to damage and impossible to capture. Completely. He could not be harmed or impeded in any way. The system was easy to break. But this version is much better.]

Yeah, it's just a great system. ^___^
I highly recommend that you find yourself a copy of the rulebook. Perhaps a digital copy. I'm sure you can get it for quite cheap.

~cough cough~

QUITE CHEAPLY. YES. DIGITAL COPY.

For evaluation purposes.

I have a resource that has tons of role playing books, and besides DND, Mutants and masterminds was by far the best. peronally, I thought the hardest part about M&M would be the damage system. BTW, I have this pdf.

 

My character is named Calvary, and rides a pegasus, has armor , and a sword.
