    Agreed. Especially since getting them split into two books might get more in both, especially in the Worlds of Freedom book. I know it doesn't make much sense for GR to make multiple M&M settings, so this is the closest I get to seeing some official variations on FC.

    That would be cool. I'd certainly be up for revisiting the work I did on Freedom by Gaslight and Fantasy Freedom.

    I liked the old Time of Crisis adventure and would be happy to see an adaptation.

    I'm an old Dr. Strange/Comic magic fan. I never did pick up Book of Magic, and Supernatural Handbook turned out to be more of a "Horror Handbook". A Book of Magic that I could buy and have be current would be preferable to chasing something down I would have to adapt.

    If most of Book of Magic hadn't already been reprinted across three separate books (at least), I'd agree with you. But the the spells portion was redone in Power Profiles, the magic items in Gadget Guides, and most of the FC characters from that book got 3e makeovers in Atlas of Earth-Prime.

    Warriors & Warlocks most definitely, it was one of my favorite 2e products. I would love to see it updated for 3rd Edition with some new material related to running Fantasy focused settings and games.

    Certainly, you'd have some room as you can now drop the Lost World section since that's in the Atlas. I'd love to see the fantasy race and class templates updated for 3e.

    Plus the book would be a great excuse to bust out the Emerald City version of Freedom's Reach. Imagine having fantasy versions of characters like Kid Robot, Xeno and Ultramarine.

    Princess could be a... duchess? A baroness? I can't actually think what would be a good fantasy equivalent for her.
