View Full Version : Mutants and Masterminds 3e - building spells

2016-05-14, 11:41 AM
Hey all, I'm working on a wizard build in MnM 3e, mostly as an exercise for fun. I'm working at PL10 and am using a standard array of Alternate Effects for my spell list. I'm working under the assumption that the Variable power is banned, and I've got a TON of points to spend because I dumped most of my physical attributes. So far, I've got a spell that bestows speed, a spell that bestows flight, and a couple of blasting spells.

I'm looking for suggestions for more spells. The more creative the spell, the better! Have fun with it and post your spell ideas below!

Here's a bunch of 2E I did for a Solar conversion. The Array is just a fancy way of doing alternate effects, its a container in 2E parlance, I don't recall off hand what the exact 3E equivalent work out to be.
