Quote from: Mackie on April 16, 2010, 06:32:18 PMThe premise of the "article", which I will no doubt distort, but one that I agree with, is this: You can't power game M & M. It's just not possible. Why?Because ultimately, its for the GM / Player (onus may vary according to social contract) to create a fun, dramatic story. If you go off creating a warped, skewed character - go ahead. All that means is that the GM is going to have a harder time judging enemies or challenges that are appropriately dramatic. You can't "beat" the GM. You can possibly "Power game" something like D&D, where there are mechanical rewards based on the difficulty or toughness of the enemy. In M & M, however, you get 1 "XP" at the end of the game (maybe 0, maybe 2) irrespective of what you faced, or how you faced it down. I apologise if this is derailing the thread - I don't mean it too. I just wanted to make the point, which I think you yourself make, that so what if its not perfectly balanced - dont fret, have fun.
