Mutants & Masterminds: Freedom City Archetypes and Legacies is part of the Green Ronin Archetypes series, each containing ten new superpowered archetypes for the superheroic M&M game, in this case all are tied to the M&M setting of Freedom City. Archetypes (in the M&M sense) are packages of statistics, skills and powers to simulate various types of characters from the superheroic / comic book genre reflecting the characters and history of Freedom City in this collection.
As is usual for Green Ronin, each of the Archetypes comes with a strong full color illustration that conveys the sense of the Archetype?s abilities and style. Each of the characters is structured for a standard Power Level 10 game. Several classic character types are represented, with the serial numbers filled off, to fit into the Freedom City setting. Each character is given a short background and a variety of roles that they can play in a campaign.
Among the character types explored in this archive are: Freedom Eagle II, a legacy hero trying to live up to the name and ideal of the original Freedom Eagle. The Lor Star-Captain, tasked with defending the Earth from interstellar threats without interfering in the affairs and development of Earth, really. Scarab Reborn, the living incarnation of Prince Heru-Ra, using the mystic secrets of Ancient Egypt to defend the modern world. Utopian Envoy, exploring and aiding the world beyond Utopia Isle.
Linking the archetypes to defined setting give the characters a greater depth while not taking away from their usability in other campaign settings. A useful collection for any M&M GM but a must have for one using the Freedom City setting.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Excellent<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Very Satisfied<br>
