Green Ronin to Publish New Edition of Hit Superhero RPG

June 6, 2005—Seattle, WA: Green Ronin Publishing is proud to announce a Second Edition of its smash hit superhero roleplaying game, Mutants & Masterminds. Originally released in 2002, Mutants & Masterminds won multiple ENnie and Pen & Paper Awards and went on to sell out several print runs while supporting a successful line of high quality supplements. Mutants & Masterminds, Second Edition, will ship to the hobby and book trade in September of this year, with Green Ronin releasing a series of teasers and previews in the three months leading up to its release.

“Mutants & Masterminds has been an amazing success for us,” said Green Ronin Publishing President Chris Pramas, “but we knew the time was right for a new edition.”

“Three years and tens of thousands of active players have proved the strength and flexibility of the Mutants & Masterminds game,” adds designer and line developer Steve Kenson, “but they’ve also shown us how we can make the game better. Second Edition will do just that.”

The new edition will be a 256 page hardback that continues the game’s tradition of glorious full color presentation and outstanding art and design. A full product description follows. For more information on Mutants & Masterminds, Second Edition, see the FAQ on www.mutantsandmasterminds.com.

Zowie, that is good news. I was about to buy my revised first edition copy, but now I'll hold off.

Sounds like you have a definite winner here. Looking forwards to seeing the new version!

Hehehe. And they were expecting Green Ronin to design a DC Comics-based RPG.


They have not said that they will NOT yet :D
Not that I think there is a HUGE chance that GR will write it (still hoping but doubt), they might do it as a different system... I mean they are still coming out with MORE Freeport, Advance, Thieves World, and Warhammer stuff... sure seems like a lot of stuff to me ;)


When this was first announced many moons ago, it was around the time I was going to buy it. So now the time is coming... and I shall finally make the purchase. I hope the GM book gives advice for people who want to run an M&M game with standard d20 characters as well... If not, no biggie, as it won't stop me from joining the M&M bandwagon. :D

I recently finished playing in a Mutants and Masterminds campaign, and while the book is one of the least used on my shelf, I cannot wait for this to come out so I can buy it too!!!

Actually someone already got the liecense for the dc rpg and that is the makers of Warhammer Fantasy RPG 2nd ed, a subsidiary of Games Workshop.


Dagnir, Green Ronin designed the Warhammer Fantasy RPG for Black Industries/Games Workshop, so people have been speculating that GR might be doing the design work on the DC Comics game, too.


OK, so it isn't coming out until September. Mutants & Masterminds is something I have been wanting to get for some time. I just haven't had a group to run it with. So I can probably wait for the second edition at this point.
