From the Files of METAs…


Ne’er-do-wells of the worst sort, these super-criminals have been flagged as dangerous, and should be approached with extreme caution. Each Rogue has a detailed history, tactics, and nemesis options for introducing them as long-running foes for the heroes in your supers game!

Includes: Acid Beth, Apogee, Backfire, Blackbody, Blackwing, Breaker, Changeup, Cro-Magnum, Fineous Frost, The Hierophant and Cog, Metacide, Obsidius, Pitch, Professor Pleistocene, Road Hazard, Schadenfreude’s Cat, Tr011, The Unspoken, and Zarathustra


These would-be-heroes are perfect additions to your Mutants and Masterminds games. Each one can be played as an ally or complication for your heroes, making them perfect long-term supporting characters in your campaigns.

Includes: Bestia, Saito Solutions, and Shockwave


Neither villain nor hero, Renegades live outside the world heroes are most familiar with. They may find themselves allies of your heroes one day and foes the next! Each Renegade is designed with strong motivations and themes to help make them memorable additions to any story.

Includes: Cy-Boar, Kogar, Little Sister, Rayzer, Warchild, White Room, Miss Rule, Mr. Ulysses, and Ms. D.

This collection of Rogues, Rivals & Renegades features solo characters, creatures, and organizations. Each featured character comes with a full-color illustration, rules write-ups for Mutants and Masterminds Third Edition, detailed backgrounds and motives. There are also pages of color standees for you to copy and play with at your gaming table!

Authors Jack Norris, James Dawsey, Rick Jones, Nathan Kahler, and Aaron Sullivan proudly present over twenty issues in the Rogues, Rivals & Renegades series. Over one hundred thirty pages of full-color content, with illustrations by Alex Williamson, Dionysia Jones, and cover art by Domenico Neziti.

Preview: Map of the Northern Provinces of Tianxia

Here’s a quick preview of the map for the upcoming War, Iron & Stone book. This map was illustrated by Marco Morte. The labels may change in font and effects as it goes into layout, but I wanted to give everyone a peek at the last piece of art created for Tianxia: War, Iron & Stone!

Tianxia: War, Iron & Stone was written by Jack Norris and Mike Olson, and will be going into layout next week.


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 to find some new files available later today.

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):

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!

-James Dawsey

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!


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!
