DC Role Playing Game by Green Ronin D20 D6 best of Goodness

Green Ronin, the nice people who brought us the Mutants and Masterminds RPG, are going to bring a comprehensive DC Universe based RPG that doesn’t suck.

The Hero’s Handbook gives you all the rules and material you need to play the game. It is the DC ADVENTURES game, all in one book. So it includes, amongst other things, ready-to-use hero archetypes, along with an overview of the DC Universe, and information on some of its most prominent heroes and villains (fourteen of each).

Heroes & Villains is split into two volumes: Vol. I covers A-K, while Vol. II goes L-Z, each one packed with over 300 pages of characters! We spent some time collaborating on a master list of who had to go into these books and it is quite comprehensive.

DC Universe looks at the world of DC Comics, focusing on present-day Earth, but also venturing into the past and future, out among the stars, and across the dimensional gulf to parallel Earths and other worlds. It also serves as a third character book of sorts, as DC Universe will contain information on many supporting and background characters of the setting.

If you’ve never played the Mutants and Masterminds RPG before Think all the goodness of Mayfair’s DC RPG, the best parts of D20 game engine, and D6 Star Wars damage resolution. The Core of the DC RPG will serve as the new M&M 3rd Edition, although a seperate M&M 3E book will be printed for purists. It promises to be compatible with existing M&M 2E products, no major changes to attributes, etc…

Dragon Wyrmlings are ferocious fighters that breathe a different Elemental Breath weapon based on what chromatic race they are:
