Mutants & Masterminds: Warriors & Warlocks is coming soon, and if the cover is anything to go by it’s going to seriously rock my world! The M&M rules are THE BEST d20-based rules, ever, and fans have been clamouring for a Fantasy supplement since before the dawn of time. True20 comes close, but clings too close to the class structure for my liking. Give me points-based, completely open character generation and M&M’s do-anything, do any style abilities and we’re looking at what could easily be called 5th Edition D&D.
In contrast, I’m struggling to get my players to love 4e D&D. Yes, it’s the most GM friendly version of D&D to date, but my players aren’t fans of enforced miniatures based play. It doesn’t help that they disparagingly call it Heroclix: The Role-Playing Game either :D As it stands, we’re considering moving wholescale to M&M anyhow. The single M&M Core Book includes everything we need for any genre, but having a real, official sourcebook chock full of Fantasy goodness isn’t going to help 4e’s chance for survival in our group…….
Watch this space!
