Just trying to give context to those watching the thread who didn't have any idea what we were talking about. Sorry if it came across as snippy. I really appreciated the invite, it's just... automated censorship, y'know?

Re: Mutants and Masterminds
Hello if you are still interested I will be happy to host a game, it has been sometime I didn't play it. I have only third edition, it's okay for you?

I prefer to warn you, I have played M&M but never be a game master for it.

I'd be happy to play. I only have the DCA books (was this 3rd Edition?) Newer to MnM but enjoy playing it.

I don't thin so. The core books core 3e are either the Basic Hero's Handbook or the Deluxe Hero's Handbook. I can share one if you want.

I have begun to think to the setting. For now I would go more for a universe where genuine superhero are a new in the world, either you would be in the first wave or we begin the play a decade after the first appearances when everyone has become accustomed to their existences and the first are already etablished. What do you think?

In reply to Apregis (msg # 51):

Third edition is the only one I am familiar with so that's great for me! I've sharply limited player and GM experience with the system so I won't be able to judge you too harshly for any mistakes you make. =P

I could go either Superheroes: Day One or a decade or so later dependent on what you think makes for a better story; as long as we're not operating in the shadows of mightier heroes that make our own works seem insignificant in comparison.

Yes.  DCA is MnM3e, but skewed to the DC Universe.  Also, because it was printed earlier, it doesn't contain errata-fixes.  Functionally, it's the same rule-set.

Mutants and Masterminds
In reply to LoonyLadle (msg # 1):

I really enjoy the Mutants and Masterminds system. I am currently building a world that can be run using the system, but I have gently moved away because I can never find anyone willing to play. I was actually just building it when I stumbled across this topic.

I saw your different characters that you were looking to make. The world I am creating has a mixture of advanced technology and magic so I could possibly accommodate some of those character ideas utilizing it. However, I would like to be upfront and say its not your typical superhero story. You are superhuman and capable of great feats and you can wear a costume if you want, but it's not inherently designed around superheroes but rather superhumans.

To sum up the storyline simply; you're a demon hunter. What makes this storyline more complex is what my players bring to me. As I see the different backstories and characters involved I can very quickly create a narrative that is guided by the characters rather than a preset idea. I've run about three games this way and I have found its very successful. (Just a whole lot of notes for me lol).

If you're interested let me know. I can start shaping the game for a Mutants and Masterminds game then.

I think Inoue could be a very intriguing demon hunter! Are we talking more along the lines of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Supernatural, or... something else that is right on the tip of my fingers but I can't recall right now?

I am considering running the emerald City Knights campaign for m&m 3e. You gain your powers in the first scene and the city you're in has never really had a large superhero presence though there are well known heroes and the like in other parts of the world. Would you be interested?

That's the setting with the Silver Storm, right? It wouldn't be my first choice for a game setting but as long as the canon heroes have the decency to not show up and make us all feel like shit by trivializing all our accomplishments I'd probably give it a shot.

Mutants and Masterminds
In reply to LoonyLadle (msg # 62):

In short: The content of those shows exists in this world, but the power levels of those shows are too low. I feel the largest difference of those shows is their tone. It could go either way, it depends on you. How do you imagine Inoue hunting demons for how you understand them?

If you want to know what I think, here ya go:


Spoiler text: (Highlight or hover over the text to view)
Personally, my inspirations are derived from comics and manga since that's what I grew up on. When I think of Inoue I see her like a Lucy from fairy tail summoning various spirits with various abilities. Probably uses a staff and smacks anyone that gets close. If by chance she knows martial arts then she probably knows kung fu and uses a variation of Bo Staff techniques (which would not be a far assumption to make at all as monks learn this as a way of life). She most likely gets involved as a demon hunter per the practice of her people and is a warrior shrine maiden.

Since she is an investigator I don't see her actually patrolling the city, but rather using her powers as a medium to understand what those who have passed have seen and responding to those events. As such she is probably a very key player in the group even finding the evidence of demons. Alongside any video footage and witness testimonies.

However, since she needs to, "[know] she is getting into combat in advance she [to] be a real menace," then I also imagine that unlike Lucy she is not summoning these spirits on command. Which means that there is either a ritual or place they are tied to. I imagine this is her shrine which also means that this is not innately her magic, but rather a relic left behind from The Protectors (the gods of this world). Which also means she doesn't know the magic language and is not innately herself a spellcaster. The one spell she does know, her ability to talk to the dead, is what (in the context of my world) we call the Designation of the Soul and is a natural ability she has always had and is the reason she became a shrine maiden in the first place. This same ability is how she calls upon the spirits she needs in combination with some sort of magical artifact that binds them to her command. And since one of her weaknesses is prep time its literally just the distance it takes the spirit to travel from the Shrine to her location which is why it is beneficial for her to already be traveling with them. It's interesting and befits her because her effectiveness increases with her proximity to the shrine.

If you wanted to take it a step further then they probably use her unused source of mana to power their abilities and this is why she hasn't bothered learning the magical language because if she wasted the mana on her own spells then she wouldn't have enough to use her spirits. She doesn't need to worry about defense because the people of this world can innately use their magic to defend from attacks. So, she has focused on honing her body instead to survive. Without her spirits she is simply a Bo Staff user which doesn't leave her with zero options and with them she is a powerful sorcerer. It's fun, I think.

I can't find your original post. The post at the top of this thread seems to have been deleted. Can you give us a link to the updated version?



I suppose that the updated version is at:

Okay, so in fact the updated post was quite easy to find if I bothered to use the bulletin board as designed.  I think it is time for another coffee.
