Sorry folks, it's been a rough week for me. It looks like I missed out on one update for their Leap Day sale. Huh, also it looks like this is the news team's 100th post and we're still goin strong! Anyway, here's the latest Green Ronin info:

First, Electrical Powers has been released as the latest installment in the Power Profiles series. If you want a hero (or villain) who can fry opponents like Zeus himself, this is the Power Profile for you.


Green Ronin wrote:
Each Power Profile takes a look at a particular type of super-power in Mutants & Masterminds game terms, putting together the effects and modifiers from the Hero's Handbook to present different abilities associated with that power, from offensive and defensive to movement and utility. It also discusses different power descriptors and how they affect game play, as well as features and complications associated with the power. It's a ready-made guide to creating new heroes and villains for your M&M game!

Power Profile: Electrical Powers


From the thunderbolts of the gods to the energy sustaining the modern world, electricity is a power to reckon with, and Electrical Powers range from hurling bolts of lightning or stunning taser blasts to absorbing and conducting the output of a city's power-grid, or "riding the lightning" by transforming into electricity and traveling in the blink of an eye.

This product is for Mutants & Masterminds Third Edition.


As always, you can find this for just 99 cents at the Green Ronin Store!

Secondly, there's a new Ronin Round Table about licensing for the Dragon Age IP. It doesn't actually say who wrote it, but from the tags at the end I'm guessing it was Will Hindmarch. Check is out here!

Ah, Weather powers. This is one I'm definitely getting my hands on (let's face it, I've been getting them all). But in this case, one of my villains is the Meteorologist, so how can I resist? And for that matter, can you?

Power Profile: Weather Powers

The flash of lightning, the crash of thunder, and the howl of the wind: the elements are at your command with Weather Powers! Call up fierce storms and strike your foes with lightning, or chill them to the bone with an arctic blizzard. Soar upon the wings of the wind and use it to carry others aloft. Dominate and shape the battlefield by controlling the environment, but beware the heavy responsibility that comes with this power and the opportunity to use it. This product is for Mutants & Masterminds Third Edition.


As always, just $.99 at the Green Ronin Store.

As if that wasn't enough...if you've ever been interested in learning a ton about licensing IPs, Jon Leitheusser gets into the nitty gritty of it in Green Ronin's most recent Round Table Interview.

Here's one I know one of my F2F players is really going to dig. Tech Powers!

If you're interested in the RPG publishing business, Chris Pramas gives a pretty interesting in-depth explanation of exactly what it is and how it works. He discusses the process of obtaining a license of an existing property and adapting it to a RPG.

I found it a pretty interesting read, personally. If this is up your alley, head on over to Green Ronin
