    I highly recommend both of these. Of course I play fantasy games with M&M mechanics on a regular basis. I don't pull it out on a regular basis much anymore, but it was a great tool for learning how to handle/play fantasy games in M&M. Still useful at times for a quick reference on feats, skills uses in fantasy settings, and quick racial templates.

    Until Gadget Guides came out for 3E (which I still need to pick up) Mecha and Manga was the go to book for robots or mechs too. Plus cool stuff for martial arts, chi powers, pet sidekicks and more.
    the main reason i didn't suggest either earlier, is because a number of the powers and feats can be or just flat out ARE broken as all heck

      Why do you say that? There are several things, especially in Mecha and Manga that are genre specific for some of the genres it covers that don't necessarily work in other genres as well.
      Classic car restoring, gun owning, martial arts practicing, military, gamer geek, kinky lesbian IT chick (has your brain exploded yet?)

        Presumably because they are designed for a low level of power in comparison

            Freedom City is due to be released for 3e next year along with Hero High. With the exception of the Scare Sheets series, the Wild Cards series of books are also 2nd edition and I'm not sure if there are any plans to update to 3e directly.

            Don't exclude work produced by other publishers such as Better Mousetrap (due to come out for 3e soon) and other existing work from Misfit studios, I really recommend Black Chapter, The Oktobermen, six gun etc. from Vigilance Press and The Algernon Files from Blackwyrm and you might enjoy Watchguard and the AOV files from Xion Studios (admittedly some of which are only available in PDF format).

            There are others but these publishers I rate extremely highly. Hope it helps.
