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.

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. [...]

Nice beginnger's guide, especially for people who may not be all that familiar with RPGs, especially super-hero RPGs. Makes a nice get-your-feet-wet-with- M&M introduction. [...]

Livres Scannés
Ces livres électroniques ont été créés physiquement en scannant les originaux et en utilisant les images obtenues pour faire les pages pdf. Chaque page est passée par un programme de reconnaissance optique ces caractères (OCR) afin d'essayer de déchiffrer le texte imprimé. Le résultat de ce procédé OCR est situé de manière invisible derrière l'image de chaque page scannée, pour permettre d'utiliser des recherches de texte. Cependant, un texte dans un livre donné sur un fond graphique ou avec des fontes manuelles ne sera probablement pas reconnu par le programme OCR, et ne sera donc pas pris en compte dans les recherches. Aussi certains livres imposants peuvent être redimensionnés pour correspondre au système, et peuvent ne pas avoir cette fonctionnalité de recherche de texte. La plupart des livres les plus vieux et en rupture d'impression sont dans le format images scannées.
Format électronique original
Ces livres électroniques ont été créé à partir des versions électroniques, et permettent donc d'utiliser pleinement la fonction recherche. De plus, la taille de leur fichier tend à être plus petite que celle des livres scannés. La plupart des livres récents sont dans le format électronique original.
