Trainwreck, now available from Drive Thru RPG!



With friends like these, who needs enemies?

Kara Kline means well, she really does, but superpowers alone aren’t enough to make you a superhero. This character falls into the “Rivals” category of our series. She’s a would-be hero who can often wind up causing more problems for your characters than the average villain! How will your heroes react? Will they try to redeem her, shut her down, or simply stand back and watch this Trainwreck?

Available now from Drive Thru RPG and RPGNow!

Welcome to the first regular release in our Rogues, Rivals & Renegades series.
