First published in 2002, Mutants & Masterminds started as an Open Game License d20 spinoff. Designer Steve Kenson (Icons) creatively modified and expanded the d20 System to reflect the unique demands of a superhero game. Character generation, character advancement, damage, and saves are all different from the traditional d20 System. Today the superhero RPG Green Ronin likes to call “the World’s Greatest” is much more than a system. It offers two well-developed settings, Freedom City and Emerald City, and you can easily create your own setting. You can even publish your own setting through Green Ronin’s “Super-Powered by M&M” Trademark License, which allows third-party publishers to use “product identity” text.
We’ve presented M&M several times, and in two different editions: a 2E bundle in December 2014, and a sprawling 3E offer in April 2014 (revived in August 2016 alongside a new “Power Boost” companion). The standalone January 2019 Earth-Prime offer, revived here, has the Basic Hero’s Handbook especially designed for new players, plus a sharp-focus lineup that lets you fly straight into four-color comic-book superhero action.
M&M 3E EARTH-PRIME
If you’re new to Mutants & Masterminds, start here with this revived M&M 3E Earth-Prime Bundle of introductory rulebooks and sourcebooks — everything you need to foil the nefarious schemes of would-be conquerors.

Ten percent of each payment (after gateway fees) for these two Mutants & Masterminds offers goes to the charity chosen by Chris Pramas of Green Ronin Publishing, the California Community Foundation Wildfire Recovery Fund. The Wildfire Recovery Fund supports intermediate and long-term recovery efforts for major California wildfires, as well as preparedness efforts. Since 2003, the fund has granted more than $30 million to support relief and recovery efforts in the aftermath of devastating California wildfires.
