A Manual of Mysterious Magics!

It is a guide to comic book magic, providing everything players and Gamemasters need to run games based on magical comics ranging from light-hearted to dark post-modern and everything in-between.

  • Six new hero archetypes and seven new villain archetypes, along with numerous supporting cast, minion, and creature archetypes, all ready for use; a complete cast of characters!
  • Eleven styles of magic and dozens of spells and magical items for mystic heroes and villains, from the All-Revealing Light of Abbridon to Yig's Inexorable Transformation, from the Abyssal Trident to the Wishing Ring.
  • The mystic secrets of the Freedom City setting, including cosmology, history, heroes, villains, creatures, magical items, and more! Plus eight mystic series frameworks to give you starting points for your own magical M&M game!

Plus a history of magic in comics, mystical dimensions, character creation, adventure creation, series advice, and more! Learn the secrets of superheroic sorcery from the Book of Magic and...

Make your M&M magical!

This one is a mixed bag of tricks to be sure. Comics have had a love/hate relationship with magic from the very beginning and the authors appreciate that. There is a nice history of magic in comics that frankly I felt was worth the cover price alone an [...]

Filled with an interesting take on magic in comic-style settings, Green Ronin's Book of Magic is a useful addition to any campaign that incorporates mystic elements an uses the M&M rule set. While not essential for any such campaign, it's a great [...]

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.
