Mutants & Masterminds Archetype Archive 1

ZIP File

This 14-page Mutants & Masterminds supplement, written by Michael Hammes, details ten new PL 10 archetypes for use in any campaign - as either ready-made player characters or, with a little work by the gamemaster, sinister villains.

The archetypes inside are:

  • Android - a machine in human guise that combines the best qualities of both.
  • Bulk -the unstoppable force and the immovable object combined into one.
  • Fortunate Hero - the personification of being both lucky and good.
  • Illusionist - using the powers of magic to beguile.
  • Mystic Warrior - a fierce combatant that draws power from a magical weapon.
  • Psychic - there are no secrets from this powerful mind.
  • Star Child - a waif able to command the powers of the universe.
  • Super Soldier - the end result of the best training and equipment the government can supply.
  • Weather Controller - able to call upon the forces of nature in all their fury.
  • Wealthy Thrillseeker - in it just for the kicks.
  • In addition to the archetypes a single new power, Probability Control, is included. This power will appear in the upcoming Mastermind's Manual and is included herein for use with the fortunate hero archetype (see above).

    A Song of Ice and Fire Roleplaying Cover Image

    Game: A Song of Ice and Fire Roleplaying

    Free Start: Quickstart PDF

    These ENnie Award-winning Quick-Start rules and the adventure Journey to King’s Landing are mean to be your introduction to both the A Song of Ice and Fire Roleplaying game and to the fantasy world detailed in George R.R. Martin’s best-selling series of novels.

    A Song of Ice and Fire Roleplaying is about Machiavellian court politics, family alliances and enmities, the rise and fall of kingdoms, and the clash of armies, but it is also about honor and duty, family, the responsibilities of leadership, love and loss; tournaments, murders, conspiracies, prophecies, dreams, war, great victories, and terrible defeats. It’s about knights, both false and true... and it’s about dragons.

    Welcome to the world of A Song of Ice and Fire, and remember the words of House Stark: “Winter is coming.”

Original electronic
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.
