Superheroism 101

Welcome to the Claremont Academy, hero... here's hoping you survive the experience!

Freedom City's prestigious Claremont Academy is a training ground for a new generation of superheroes. Now you have the opportunity to follow along and take part as Claremont's newest student arrives at its hallowed halls.

The Mutants & Masterminds Beginner's Guide walks newcomers to the game through all the steps of creating and playing their own heroes with the Worlds Greatest Superhero RPG. It includes basic, stripped-down game systems to get a feel for the game along with a narrative adventure to experience game-play all on your own. Then you can try playing with friends as you all get into the game. Just like graduating from Claremont Academy, the Beginner's Guide will ensure you're ready to become a full-fledged hero!

In this Guide, you will find:

  • A quick introduction to roleplaying games in general and Mutants & Masterminds in particular.
  • Basic rules for playing the game, explained step-by-step.
  • The solo adventure Into the Doom Room, where you play Firepower, the newest student at Claremont Academy, as he tests his newfound powers.
  • Complete character sheets for Firepower and five of his Academy classmates, with detailed explanations of their capabilities in game terms.
  • The short group adventure Super-School Slugfest! Play one of the superhero students in a training session in the Doom Room: play against other players and against the systems of the Doom Room itself.

If you've ever thought about trying a roleplaying game, now's your chance! The Mutants & Masterminds Beginner's Guide opens up whole new worlds of adventure.

Dragon Age RPG Set One Cover Image

Game: Dragon Age RPG

Free Start: Quick Start Guide

The Dragon Age RPG is based on BioWare's popular Dragon Age RPG franchise, and brings the dark and gritty world of Thedas to your gaming table.

DC Adventures Hero's Handbook Cover

Game: DC Adventures (with Mutants & Masterminds 3rd Edition Rules)

Free Start: Quick Start PDF

The county fair is being held in Smallville this year and Superboy, the town's famous local hero, is invited as guest of honor. But it's not all prize pigs and cotton candy, as Knockout has come to the fair, and she's aiming to make a big impression!

The DC ADVENTURES Quick Start includes an explanation of the rules, full game statistics for Superboy and Knockout, and a short adventure featuring a brawl at the county fair, so you can jump right in to the action.

A Song of Ice and Fire Roleplaying Cover Image

Game: A Song of Ice and Fire Roleplaying

Free Start: Quickstart PDF

These ENnie Award-winning Quick-Start rules and the adventure Journey to King’s Landing are mean to be your introduction to both the A Song of Ice and Fire Roleplaying game and to the fantasy world detailed in George R.R. Martin’s best-selling series of novels.

A Song of Ice and Fire Roleplaying is about Machiavellian court politics, family alliances and enmities, the rise and fall of kingdoms, and the clash of armies, but it is also about honor and duty, family, the responsibilities of leadership, love and loss; tournaments, murders, conspiracies, prophecies, dreams, war, great victories, and terrible defeats. It’s about knights, both false and true... and it’s about dragons.

Welcome to the world of A Song of Ice and Fire, and remember the words of House Stark: “Winter is coming.”

This applies to M&M 2nd Edition, not 3rd. It's not clearly labeled as such, and will confuse the heck out of anyone starting with 3rd. [...]

I love quick starts and Basic sets. This one is a bit more than that, but it is still a fun way to learn and be introduced to Mutants and Masterminds (2nd Ed) and their world of Freedom City. Taking the approach of the players being new super heroes you [...]

Very good introduction to M&M. Short, to the point and with all the essential rules written clearly. It would have been useful for combat to be explained in more detail. [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
