Rogues, Rivals & Renegades Collection Two Cover Preview

RRR-Collection02-CoverPromo600Greetings, Vigilance Press fans! It’s been a busy Summer, but we’ve been hard at work on a number of projects. Today, I want to give everyone a special early look at the cover art for our second collection of Rogues, Rivals & Renegades. This cover art is by Domenico Neziti, who may be familiar to Mutants and Masterminds fans as an illustrator who has worked on several great Green Ronin projects. In fact, he illustrated many of the character archetypes I designed for the Cosmic Handbook by Green Ronin!

From the first illustration I saw, I was an instant fan of his work. I’m so very pleased to be able to share this early look at the first art he has produced for Vigilance Press. This art features The Hierophant and Cog, Rayzer, and Shockwave. These characters and many more will be in Rogues, Rivals & Renegades: Collection Two coming soon, from Vigilance Press!

Spirits, Beasts & Spells print proof ordered, plus Backerkit rewards!

Tianxia: Spirits, Beasts & Spells CoverThis is just a quick post to let everyone know that Tianxia: Spirits, Beasts & Spells has been cleared for the print on demand version. I ordered my print proof today, so it’ll be roughly a week or so until I get it. That means it may arrive while I’m out of town at Gen-Con, which will mean the product will likely not go live until I get back from Gen Con.

Starting today, we will be using Backerkit to start delivering digital rewards to our Kickstarter backers, in addition to the rewards through Drive Thru RPG and RPG Now. If you are a backer of the Tianxia: Blood, Silk & Jade kickstarter, you should check your Backerkit accounts at tianxia.backerkit.com to find some new files available later today.

Tianxia: Spirits, Beasts & Spells CoverIn other news, Tianxia: Spirits, Beasts & Spells is now out of layout! I’ve uploaded the files to Drive Thru RPG and RPG Now, and am waiting on those files to be approved so we can set those files “live” for sale. More news on that as soon as the files are ready for sale. Check out today’s update on our Kickstarter campaign site for more details! 

Spirits, Beasts & Spells going into layout tomorrow… Live on Twitch!

Blood,SilkAndJadeCoverPromo600wideFolks, I have some great news that I wanted to share with you before I headed off to the JAFAX convention last week, but I needed to wait until the contract had been signed and some back-and-forth made that timing a little off. So this announcement may sound a bit more last-minute than it actually is, but here we go!

Daniel Solis, who did the amazing layout and graphic design work on Tianxia: Blood, Silk & Jade, is going to be tackling our Spirits, Beasts & Spells book! We’re very excited to have Daniel back, working on the second major release of the Tianxia books. Ruben Byrd and I are still hard at work at the other Tianxia material for you, so bringing Daniel on means we’ll be able to get more of the Tianxia books done in a shorter period of time!

Not only that, but he’s going to be streaming it live on his Twitch channel, if people want to watch him work! We estimate he’ll be done towards the end of July, and he’ll be starting roughly tomorrow (July 1) with the streaming. His working hours will be roughly from noon to five in the evening Eastern Time. If you want to keep up with him, follow his Twitter handle @DanielSolis for updates! If you subscribe to it, you can also set it to send you email alerts so you’ll know the latest info on his plans.

You can find his Twitch Tv stream here (It may not always be live):

http://www.twitch.tv/danielsolis81

And his Twitter link, in case you don’t know how to find it by the @DanielSolis address:

I’ll be releasing some more art to you soon as Denise is still chugging away on various pieces for the upcoming books, but I wanted to make this a standalone post to share with everyone right away.

Thanks again for backing us, and I hope you’re as excited as I am to watch Tianxia: Spirits, Beasts & Spells come to life!

The Final issue of Rogues, Rivals & Renegades is out now!

backfire_promo600We’ll be following this one up with a Collection Two in the coming weeks, but for now, we have come to a close with our weekly Mutants and Masterminds series “Rogues, Rivals & Renengades.” Thanks so much to our fans, and we hope to have more cool Mutants and Masterminds stuff coming in the near future, but for now… whew! It’s been a marathon! Almost a full year without a single missed week… wow… I didn’t know we had it in us!

Powerful forces are at play… Rogue Companies, Rival Agencies, and Renegade Operations!

Now available at Drive Thru RPG!

This special METAs file update adds details on three organizations entries into the Rogues, Rivals & Renegades series. Each organization features an iconic character in the Beacon City universe, but can be dropped into any campaign with very little alteration. Sample characters range from PL 5 to PL 10.

Rogue Company Vulcan Energy presents itself as a successful powerhouse corporation built on energy production, but is also invested in popular and news media. The corporation is led by CEO Titus Tate, a charming and ambitious man who is more than willing to let others pay the price for his power lust. This disregard for others has already laid the foundations for catastrophe, unless your heroes can uncover the hidden dangers they represent!

Titus-Tate-Promo600

Rival Agency Saito Solutions is best known for their heroic Safeguard, an iconic hero in Beacon City(detailed in the Elements of Ruin: The Challengers free supplement from Vigilance Press). What many do not know, however, is their relationship to the villain Backfire, who uses stolen technology to besmirch the good name of Saito Solutions. Their interests in creating new and advanced rescue technology depend on the good deeds of their allies outweighing the evil deeds of their foes in the eyes of their investors. With many military and criminal organizations seeking to weaponize their proprietary rescue technologies, they’ll need all the allies they can get!

Renegade Organization Little Sister is a natural outgrowth of internet hacker culture in a world where meta-humans are a fact of life. They are a large but disorganized group of hacktivists who target supervillains (usually). Ostensibly leaderless, their public face is often that of the mysterious Miss Rule, whose cartoon logo and vocal presence online has become emblematic of the group. As a group they may be helpful one day and viciously harmful the next, making them a very tricky organization to try and work with.

Welcome to Rogues, Rivals & Renegades. Each entry in the series is designed as a villain, a potential ally with complications, or an outsider who might help the PCs one day and be at odds with them another. Each character has the potential to become a mainstay of your campaign!

Rogues, Rivals & Renegades are presented as files from a meta-human monitoring agency called METAs, with a loose frame story connecting them to Vigilance Press‘s own Beacon City setting. They are designed to drop into any setting with minimal effort, however, and the METAs commentary is written to give you a better picture of each character’s personality and threat level. Each issue gives you a background for the character, commentary from METAs files, a standee to print and play with, and Hero Lab files for key characters!

Take a walk on the wild side with Enhanced Animals for Mutants and Masterminds!

Now Available on Drive Thru RPG!

MaledettaPromo600This special METAs file update features three curious entries into the Rogues, Rivals & Renegades series. Ranging from Power Level 8 to Power Level 11, each Enhanced Animal is an iconic character in the Beacon City universe, but can be dropped into any campaign with very little alteration.

Maledetta, also known as Schadenfreude’s Cat, is a wickedly evil feline Rogue who loves to watch things fall apart. Cyboar, the Renegade cybernetic boar, roams the wild woods outside Beacon City trying to avoid the humans who twisted it into a living weapon. Bestia, the most heroic of the three, may Rival some heroes in her eagerness to perform good deeds. Each of these creatures is an exceptional animal with compelling backstories and strong motivations! Will your heroes realize they are potent beings in their own rights, or will they be taken by surprise by these Enhanced Animals?

He’s not from around here… Kogar! An Alien Renegade for Mutants and Masterminds

KogarPromo600He’s not from around here… Kogar!

Now Available from Drive Thru RPG!

A Power Level 12 Renegade, Kogar is an alien bounty hunter with little concern for local law. Kogar is an iconic character in the Beacon City universe, but can be dropped into any campaign with very little alteration.

Kogar’s file is designated “Red” to indicate his powers are innate, but alien. Strong, fast, and skilled in battle, Kogar is a tough visitor to any planet. Unfortunately, he’s not exactly concerned with obeying local customs or checking in with the local law. In fact, he’s not entirely sure what the locals look like, he’s only concerned with tracking down his quarry and cashing them in for a bounty before moving on to his next mission! Any hero who gets in his way will find him occasionally reasonable, but no less annoying for it. On the other hand, his space-ship’s ability to travel anywhere in the known universe might just make him the ally your heroes never knew they needed. For a price.

Putting the “ESP” in Espionage.. White Room, for Mutants and Masterminds

UlyssesPromo600They put the ESP in Espionage… White Room!

Available now from Drive Thru RPG!

A Renegade Organization, White Room is a mysterious intelligence agency composed of individuals with unique gifts. White Room is an iconic setting element in the Beacon City universe, but can be dropped into any campaign with very little alteration.

White Room’s file has no color or ranking designation, because the organization may be composed of people of hugely diverse backgrounds. In fact, the membership of the organization is left largely vacant, for the GM to fill with characters tailor-made to their players. The two feature agents of White Room detailed in this release are Mr. Ulysses and Ms. D. These two mysterious characters are PL 11 and 9, respectively, each offering a distinctive set of psychic skills with which they serve the interests of White Room. What are those interests? Will the players find themselves targets of this mysterious espionage group, or will they fight side by side? Only time, and serious investigation, will tell!

Welcome to Rogues, Rivals & Renegades. Each entry in the series is designed as a villain, a potential ally with complications, or an outsider who might help the PCs one day and be at odds with them another. Each character has the potential to become a mainstay of your campaign!
