    About the adventure

    Hi! This is a guide to playing mutants and masterminds 3rd edition. It’s character creation is very open ended and you can make pretty much anything. I’ll guide you through character creation, teach you how to build your hero and get an understanding of the basic mechanics. mutants and masterminds is a d20 system with a point buy structure that can allow you to create anything from james from silent hill to superman or jean grey and a solid system for allowing everyone to have a moment based off of the power level. the possibilities for character customization are near limitless. together, we'll go through the character creation process, which they offer a wide variety of ways to go about it; in the books themselves are pregens, and even partial pregens or a character quiz you can take to pick and choose powers and backgrounds that fit to your liking. or we can make something from scratch, building a completely unique super hero all to your own. if you've played the game already, and you just want to import a character so long as i can have a look at it before we start thats also ok too! once the characters are created, i would like to run a short demo to introduce you into how the game itself works. the premise is pretty simple; the monarch (from the venture bros) has run out of funds to arch his sworn nemesis dr. venture and has decided to rob the first national bank of new york! with his army of incredibly incompetent henchmen he has begun a siege upon the bank and taken hostages. each of you is the first hero on call and its up to you to thwart the monarch and save the day! if you happen to enjoy the game and want to play more, consider purchasing a few of my other games at the table! if not, don't sweat it, we're here to have a good time and learn a fun game.

    Gameplay details

    mutants and masterminds is a d20 system. exclusively, it uses only a d20 and that's about it. it's pretty easy once you get the hang of it. character creation is a point buy system, and we'll be making standard power level 10 heroes.
