Zodiac Ring $6.50

The Zodiac Ring provides material for a M&M GM to use as a plot device, explanation of powers and adventure starter. Naturally everything is based around the Zodiac Ring, a mystical artefact, which can transform people into the avatars of the zodiac.

The Zodiac Ring should provide a solid basis for a campaign or a sub-plot in a campaign and the author has charted out various paths and ways to incorporate the material into a game. The 12 zodiac avatar characters are fairly interesting and most can easily be used without the metaplot elements. Lastly, the art is clean and easy to look at (with the occasional 3-panel stick figure strip to add a bit of humor).<br><br><b>LIKED</b>: Flexability of the design, allowing a wide range of application of the material.<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: None of the characters really inspired me, they are good, but they just did not grab me.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Very Good<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Satisfied<br>

Thanks Sean. The personalities and backgrounds of the characters are intentionally kept minimal, since it's part of the premise that they are ordinary people who gain their superpowers during play. GMs are encouraged to substitute some normal NPCs that are already established in their own game (for example, having a hero's kid sister turn into Libra instead of the police officer described). The write-up of Scorpio in the demo download is a good example of what kind of character background a GM can expect.
