PostSubject: Public Domain chars in Mutants & Masterminds/RPGs   Sun May 23, 2010 11:24 am

Hi there.

As a (somewhat) experienced M&M player, I've delved into the public domain for inspiration. For example:

Here's a reworking of Lev Gleason's Ghost for a pulp sci-fi game.

And here's Wonder-Man for a proposed Silver Age game.

Have any of you guys done anything similar?

I have not yet created any bios for any PD characters, as I've only just gotten into M&M, but I do have plans to give a go at building a whole cluster of the old characters as bios. Interesting to see how I go with them, given I'm not experienced at building characters just yet.

One of my M&M games is what kind of got me looking into the pulp heroes, and eventually the public domain heroes. I am plotting something of a noir/pulp/Golden Age era game some time soon, and thought it'd be cool to pepper some of the PD characters into the game.

I should really get into M&M and give the character building thing a go. My character builds would be almost exclusively PD and OS characters, since everyone and their mothers have done the main characters from Marvel and DC.

DC has an official book out with M&M right now, with three more on the way...

Yeah, but I'm not really interested in the DC characters for the most part. Unless they stat the obscure ones I couldn't care less. PD is where it's at Razz

I think they are statting like some 400+ characters. Even so, we still play 2e and didn't get any of the DC stuff.

Haha...you know it brother! I've been finding myself a bit less enamored with characters I can't use. If DC stats 400, they are sure to do at least a few PD characters. Plastic Man, Uncle Sam and the Marvel family will be certain. Although DC has their own unique "sequel" characters to other Golden Age favorites (Ray II, Phantom Lady II, Blue Beetle III, etc).
