First time as Gamemaster. HELP!

I will begin running a Mutants and Masterminds series within the next month or so. We'll be starting off with the Emerald City Knights adventure path. This is my first time as Gamemaster. Not just as an M&M GM, but first time running any game system. As much as I like RPGs, I don't get to play them ...

Re: Multiple movement modes in a single move

You mean do something like move half your ground speed and then move half your flight speed, as part of the same action? My reading of the rules would be "No, you can't do that."

Battlesuit Archetype

It's been a really long time since I looked at the rules, so maybe I'm not reading this right.. The battlesuit archetype has Strength 12, Enhanced Strength 12, Fighting 8, and Enhanced Fighting 4. Doesn't that put it way over the limits for power level 10? Or is there an erratum that I missed somewh...

Re: HOBBIT film

Weirdly, it is being reported that Cate Blanchet will reprise the role of Galadriel in this film... There are several other actors returning from The Lord of The Rings whose participation in the Hobbit duology seems peculiar: Christopher Lee (Saruman), Ian Holm (and older Bilbo), Elijah Wood (Frodo...

Re: Green Lantern live action film [June 17, 2011]

I was disappointed with Green Lantern . The major problem with the film is the script, which lacks focus. It tries to do too many things, and consequently doesn't do any of them very well. There are too many characters, and too many plot threads. An story set entirely on Earth starring Hal alone wit...

Re: [3e] Confused! Are these errata?

1. Instant -> Concentration -> Sustained -> Continuous chain of extra still exists under the heading Increased Duration. I'm looking at page 141 right now; the only options I see under Increased Duration are Instant -> Concentration and Sustained -> Continuous. Concentration -> Sustained is conspic...

[3e] Confused! Are these errata?

I just picked up my copy of the Hero's Handbook a few days ago, and I'm quite confused by some stuff in the Powers chapter. The new rules edition appears to place some arbitrary restrictions on how much we can fiddle with the basic parameters of power effects. Rather than saying that each step up is...

Re: DC Adventures Design Journal (New Thread)

I like the changes in Ablities for the most part. The only thing which is a little odd is that close combat has one stat, while ranged combat uses two. When I saw a Fighting stat, I expected to see a "Shooting" stat as well. I'm not sure I like having a shorter list of broad skills. But I like that ...

Re: 3e & Things you'd like to see

I just prefer to have every three ranks result in a change in size category. Every rank = x2 or /2 mass; every three ranks = x2 or /2 height/width, which matches x8 or /8 mass.
I always thought Growth and Shrinking should have been so one size category per rank.

Re: 3e & Things you'd like to see

Some things I wouldn't mind seeing in 3E: *Fix the bizarre rules, such "Flight can't be in the same array as Space Flight," and the weirdness when you try to increase the duration of Extras. *I'd like to see "Target" separated from "Range" as a parameter in power description headers. When they're at...

Re: DC Universe Online

Sony has been been releasing information and even answering questions posted on Facebook, but the information we've been getting is usually ultraspecific ("Is power X in the game?"), or fluffy. I really want to see some information on the game mechanics. Maybe they're release some crunchy informatio...
