    Sentinels of Earth-Prime

    Interesting news

    GREEN RONIN AND GREATER THAN GAMES TEAM UP FOR SENTINELS OF EARTH-PRIME
    New Card Game to Bring Together Mutants & Masterminds and Sentinels of the Multiverse

    February 14, 2017—SEATTLE, WA: Green Ronin Publishing and Greater Than Games announced today that they would be working together to create Sentinels of Earth-Prime, a new version of the hugely successful Sentinels of the Multiverse card game using the core setting of the Mutants & Masterminds RPG. The game, a joint venture between the companies, is coming to Kickstarter in April.

    “Nothing says superheroes like a great team up!” said Green Ronin President Chris Pramas. “We are big fans of Sentinels of the Multiverse around here, so there was no way we were going to pass up the chance to work with Greater Than Games. I’m especially excited that Christopher Badell, the original designer of Sentinels of the Multiverse, will be designing Sentinels of Earth-Prime as well.”

    “Mutants & Masterminds is one of our favorite super-heroic RPGs—we’ve been fans since the first edition,” said Christopher Badell, Editor-in-Chief of Greater Than Games. “Some of the side characters from Sentinels of the Multiverse even started out as heroes and villains from our home games of M&M! So, when Chris Pramas mentioned doing a Mutants & Masterminds card game, we jumped at the chance. I am eager to bring the rich lore, characters, and settings from Steve Kenson—a hero in his own right—to the card game format, now that the Sentinels of the Multiverse line is coming to a close.”

    Earth-Prime has been the core setting of the Mutants & Masterminds RPG since its debut in 2002. Its characters and stories have been detailed in many books over the years, from Freedom City and Foes of Freedom to Emerald City and the Cosmic Handbook. The Atlas of Earth-Prime, a comprehensive setting book, was just released in January.

    Sentinels of Earth-Prime will be a stand-alone card game that can be played on its own or with decks and characters from Sentinels of the Multiverse for universe-spanning action. Its Kickstarter launches in April and Green Ronin will publish the finished game in 2018.

    I don't play Sentinels of the Multiverse, but I know my brother's into it.

    So I know that GTG is working on an RPG that Cam Banks is writing, but if its anything like Marvel Heroic, I'll pass. I just don't care for Marvel Heroic. But given this news, could there be an M&M RPG sourcebook for SotM? I would definitely buy that!

    My impression was that it's going the opposite direction, that they're providing cards in the ruleset of Sentinels of the Multiverse, but with the characters and setting of Freedom City. But, of course, I do not work for Green Ronin. I just happened to be browsing their front page while preparing to purchase the Emerald City materials.

    I was so confused. This is one of those times where two similar projects are coming out around the same time. There's this project and then there's this project. Marion Harmon has a book called "Ronin Games" which makes for two projects both having the terms Sentinels and Ronin associated with them.

    I hope this takes off. More Sentinels of the Multiverse-compatible decks, possibly some additional detail of Earth Prime.

    (As I suggested on Facebook)

    I am hoping for a "Sentinels of Universe sourcebook for M&M" as a stretch goal.

    Probably won't happen, but one can dream.
