Better Mousetrap is finally back for Mutants & Masterminds 3e!


Better Mousetrap 3e for Mutants & MastermindsBetter Mousetrap 3e for Mutants & MastermindsBetter Mousetrap was the most extensive, largest third-party rules supplement for the second edition Mutants & Masterminds rules, and the re-release can make the same boast for third edition. You simply won't find a Super-Powered by M&M supplement to match it.

Written by Steven Trustrum, contributor to the DC Adventures product line, and illustrated by industry veteran, Eric Lofgren, this massive sourcebook covers everything from how to create interesting, challenging super-villains to new game mechanics (advantages, extras, flaws, new game mechanics, and more), to entirely new rules that will help you take your game to a new level of excitement.

Within Better Mousetrap 3e for Mutants & Masterminds you will find:

  • The Metahuman Threat Scale, a tool for classifying how dangerous the opponents in your game are.
  • More than 50 Expertise Skills explained, including a Skill DC Benchmark Table for each. Also, skills for brainwashing and hypnosis in detail.
  • More than 50 New or Expanded Advantages, including updating the Minion and Organization Advantage categories.
  • A New Power Effect, 13 New Power Builds (including the return of Rage and Master Plan as powers), 19 New Extras, and more than 40 New Flaws.
  • The Amounts Table, which adds a column to the Measurements Table for keeping track of how much of something is represented in the game mechanics, updated Radiation Exposure rules, and 19 New Complications.
  • Detailed and updated Hot Pursuit & Vehicle Combat rules.
  • Pushing your heroes beyond Extra Effort with Exceptional Extra Effort.
  • 6 New Villain Archetypes, including the Beast Lord, Immortal Despot, and Trap Master.
  • 11 Rank & File Stock Minions, including the Trooper, Pilot / Driver, and Brute.
  • New Drugs & Poisons, and dozens of New Weapons, Ammunition Types, Constructs, WMDs & Super-Weapons, and Deathtraps that make use of the new rules.
  • 15 New or Expanded Vehicle Features.
  • Detailed guidelines on building and interacting with Security & Defense Systems.
  • Rules for Making Organizations and representing them in game mechanics that matter.
  • Rules for Crowd Entities: taking the masses and simplifying them as a single "character" to help keep combat fast.
  • A New Headquarters Design System. More details, more features, more possibilities! And introducing Headquarters Complications. (The Appendix also collects the original HQ features and presents them with the new features using the previous format if you prefer the default system for building headquarters.)
  • New villainous organizations with which to oppose your heroes in the form of CORE (along with stats on their rank & file minions, and the Elite, their team of super-villains) and Masters, Inc. Both organizations are built using the new organization design rules.
  • 5 New Solo Villains: The Craftsman, The Gamemaster, Gunpunk, Scarlet Jester, and The Termite.

So, pick up your copy of Better Mousetrap 3e and be prepared to fill in many of the missing pieces that have been absent from your Mutants & Masterminds game!

Are you planning on releasing a PoD version or will Misfit be releasing a print version?

I'm working on it. I don't know if it will be through Lulu and here or just Lulu, though. It depends on how much retooling is required to fit it into the OBS PoD specs.

The PoD version is now up on Lulu (I won't provide direct links out of respect for OBS' market here.) Both colour and B/W are available. I want to put one up here, but it requires a lot of tweaking and some changes because both sources have different specs, so it may be a while.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
