Fantastic art and easy to read. Print it out and load it into one of those GM screens you can buy at your FLGS.

This one will be a short one folks. First off, the artwork on this bad boy is crazy awesome. Your assumption that the primary use of the GM kit is the handy dandy tables that summarize almost all the numbers you need to run the game. That's obviously useful and I love having it as a PDF over the physical screen.

Now for the surprise. Rather than an introductory adventure, Green Ronin went with a character generator supplement. Character generator you say? Well that's probably just a set of quick start rules that you could get anywhere. WRONG! The generator is an awesome place to create quick PCs on the fly for Con games or a one-shot. You can whip up NPC enemies almost as fast as you can come up with a concept. Choose your options to create what you want or roll randomly on the tables. There are 20 archetypes that start the rolls. Then you get sub-tables from there. Everything from Battlesuits to Weather Controllers are there with plenty of mechanical options which underneath provide flavor for how to play your character. Did you build your own suit? Inherit it? Get it as part of a military experiment? These are the types of choices that lead to different stats, skills, and traits as well as a framework within which your character's personality can shine. The only thing I can't speak to is the balance of the various characters. I would hope they are all roughly equal in power and capability, but it'll take some real world testing to get a definitive answer. This will absolutely make sure I run the game though. It's too easy to get ready and go with whatever superhero world you can come up with.

This product really consists of two distinct pieces, the GM Screen and the Quickstart Character Generator booklet.

The GM Screen collects useful charts and references from the Mutants & Masterminds 3e Hero’s Handbook and presents them all on three letter-sized, landscape-orientation panels. This is a product that most M&M GMs will probably want in print—I certainly have preordered a physical copy—but it also useful on-screen if you use a laptop, iPad, or similar device at the gaming table or like to carry such tables around with you for quick reference. If you happen to own something like the Savage Worlds Customizable GM Screen, you could of course print these charts from the PDF and slip them into the convenient pockets on the do-it-yourself screen.

The Quickstart Character Generator is a 48-page black-and-white booklet filled with tables that allow you to generate a balanced M&M character using random die rolls. This is supposed to save you time, I guess, but I personally don’t find it appealing for M&M.

The downloadable version of the product also includes a full-sized PDF of the illustrated side of the physical GM screen. Do-it-yourselfers will need to slice the printout three ways vertically in order to use the image for a homemade physical screen.
