Re: Why I Bought The Deluxe Hero's Handbook

Thanks to Dan, and to everyone who buys and plays M&M, for your support and enthusiasm. Without you, the game would have never made it past its first couple of books and been consigned to bargain bins and remainder shelves forever after. It's a continued source of pleasure and pride for me to be abl...

There is rather the implication that Eldrich is no longer Master Mage, isn't there...? 8)

Re: Mental Blast and Bruises

The various degrees of failure are worded rather specifically: "[t]he target has a –1 circumstance penalty to further resistance checks against damage." (Emphasis mine.) The paragraph you cite is dictum, as the vast majority of the time, Toughness resists Damage. However, the penalty is against all...

Lor-Van is the home world of the Lor. Magna-Lor is the capitol of the Republic and not the original Lor home world.

Re: Strength Power Profile is live!

BTW, can you also give your personal opinion to the Transform in an array issue? Will everything affected revert instantly or not (duration increased to continuous) Continuous Transforms are intended to last until they are reversed by another effect. So the result of a Continuous Transform should l...

Re: Strength Power Profile is live!

The second is to use a narrative resolution rather than a dice mechanic. Rule that while heroes do recover heroically after the scene (unless a Setback ensues), and villains will escape at the first opportunity (it's not a Complication if it's expected in genre ), Minions don't recover so easily. T...

Correct. Would "Perception Area (Mental Awareness)" or "Perception (Mental Awareness) Area" be more clear?

Re: Paragons and M&M 3

The Paragons book suggest building the normal character with 50 PP and adding the remaining power points for the breakout. That's for 2nd edition, it is the same for 3rd M&M ? That should still work just fine. Power point totals are comparable between 2nd and 3rd ed. and starting PP totals are the ...
