In January 2019 we presented a new M&M Earth-Prime Bundle, a standalone introduction to the Third Edition of The World’s Greatest Superhero Roleplaying Game, Mutants & Masterminds from Green Ronin Publishing. Players new to Steve Kenson’s popular OGL-based game got to fly straight into four-color comic-book superhero action with this introductory collection of Green Ronin’s rulebooks and sourcebooks. It had everything you need to foil the nefarious schemes of would-be conquerors.
Though we’ve offered Mutants & Masterminds several times before — M&M 3E in April 2014 (revived in August 2016) and 2E in December 2014 — this new collection stood by itself as an easy, self-contained gateway to the leading superhero RPG. There were three titles in our Starter Collection (retail value $60) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks, including the complete new M&M 3E Basic Hero’s Handbook with stripped-down rules for newcomers; the Rogues Gallery collection of dozens of supervillains; and the new edition of the classic M&M campaign setting, Freedom City for 3E.
Those who paid more than the threshold (average) price also got our entire Bonus Collection with three more titles worth an additional $63, including the complete 320-page Deluxe Hero’s Handbook with all the rules you need for any situation (previously presented in our April 2014 M&M 3E Bundle); the Atlas of Earth-Prime, a 270-page guide to the entire world of M&M; and the revised edition of Hero High, about the travails of super-powered teens training to become the heroes of tomorrow.
Ten percent of each payment (after gateway fees) went to the charity chosen by Chris Pramas of Green Ronin, the California Community Foundation Wildfire Relief Fund.
