New Product: Mutants & Masterminds: Deluxe Champions Handbook


Jason S.Walters

An official announcement from our friends fans at Green Ronin!

"For far too long, we here at Green Ronin have stuck our head in the sand and focused entirely on the Mutants & Masterminds game engine, ignoring the many other superhero game systems that came before. And ultimately, that kind of myopia doesn’t benefit anyone but ourselves. Our fans deserve better. We’ve long partnered with Steve Kenson’s Adamant Entertainment to bring you Icons Superpowered Roleplaying, and so we have reached out to the creators of other amazing superhero game engines, both active and defunct, to begin the new Mutants & Masterminds System Upkeep, Collaboration, & Knowledge Exchange Roundtable. Our goal is to bring you the great Mutants & Masterminds products you love, for the systems you play!"

"Releasing at the end of this month is the new Mutants & Masterminds: Deluxe Champions Handbook, powered by classic Champions 3rd edition! Everything you need to play a Champions-powered Mutants & Masterminds campaign, complete with extensive point-buy systems our fans already love, plus tracking END to pay for your powers, sorting your attacks in Killing and Non-Killing, and many other elements that add a much-needed authenticity M&M has always lacked. A lot of you will ask “why not use Hero System, Sixth Edition or Champions Complete?” And that is an excellent question. One which I have no answer to. Licensing is a strange mistress and the rites must be observed."

So is it possible we could get some more clarity on the licensing issue? It would have seem to me that using 6th or CC would have been the portal to boost the presence, relevance and sales of both M&M and Hero.

:think:

 

Okay, when I read the blurb about this on the main Hero Games News page, I was excited. This is in broad terms the sort of product I've wanted for years, opening up the splendid world of M&M supers to Champions players. Now I'm just perturbed. I know many Hero gamers have a nostalgic fondness for Champs 3E, but for me its coherence and flexibility fall far short of later iterations of the system. I have to assume there are legal or financial complications involved, but I'm afraid this product went in seconds from "must-buy" for me, to "probably pass." :(

Sorry, LL,

 

But the same thing that makes you want to pass on it makes it the first true "must have" for me since Lucha HERO. 

 

Is there some sort of list I have to get on, or will it be available through the HERO store?  Anybody?
