Now Available: Iron Age PDF

Iron Age (PDF)The PDF version of Iron Age is now available in our Green Ronin Online Store.

They're the best there is at what they do, and what they do isn't very pretty. Go back to the grim days of the '80s and '90s, when super-vigilantes in leather and chains dispensed harsh justice. Iron Age looks at the darkest era of comic book history and how you can bring it to life in your Mutants & Masterminds game. It includes an overview of the period, how to create and run Iron Age characters and games, and details on the Iron Age of Green Ronin's award-winning Freedom City campaign setting. Iron Age is a shotgun blast of super-powered crime, betrayal, and vengeance. It ain't pretty, but someone has to clean up the streets.
