The perfect warrior, at war with himself… Warchild is ready for battle!

warchildThe perfect warrior, at war with himself… Warchild!

Now on Drive Thru RPG!

Power Level 11 Renegade, Warchild is an iconic character in the Beacon City universe, but can be dropped into any campaign with very little alteration. He is a Special Forces operative turned freelancer, and has enhanced his formidable skill set with minor metahuman abilities.

Warchild’s file is designated “Orange” to indicate the intense training that makes him so dangerous. He sells his skills as a mercenary, but often works outside the law to battle organized crime in his own way. Heroes may find themselves allied with him if they need military expertise, or at odds with him when his personal moral code drives him to break the law. Heroes who have spent time in the Special Forces may have met Warchild before he adopted his new identity, or may find themselves tasked by an old friend from their military days to hunt this “traitor” down only to discover something bigger is going on. They may also encounter him during an investigation into organized crime in their home city, discovering Warchild following a parallel line. As an ally, he is efficient and fierce. As a foe, he is intensely driven to fight for victory. In all conflicts, he fights like one born for battle.

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 heroes 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!

Authored by Jack Norris with full color art by Alex Williamson and Dionysia Jones, and layout by Ruben Byrd. Designed for the Mutants and Masterminds Third Edition roleplaying game.

Rogues, Rivals & Renegades: Over 30 Issues Strong!

Greetings, Vigilance Press Fans!

I’ve been away from the website for a bit (had a great time at Orca Con!), but we’ve managed to keep pace with our Rogues, Rivals & Renegades releases without missing a beat! Here’s a breakdown of everything we’ve released so far, divided into Series 01 (which will be included in the first Collection of issues titled: Rogues, Rivals & Renegades Collection One) and Series 02 (which is the current list of solo issues). To date we’ve released over 30 weekly issues of Rogues, Rivals & Renegades!

Collection One is juuuust about ready to go live, too! Collection One compiles the first 23 issues (24 entries) of Rogues, Rivals & Renegades into a volume over 100 pages long! It’s our biggest print on demand offering yet, and it’ll be available through Drive Thru RPG Soon. We’re currently waiting on the printer to approve our print files so we can get a test print of Collection One before we make it available for sale. When that goes live, we’ll be sure to let everyone know.

To celebrate more than six months of steady releases, I’m hyperlinking each of our solo issues below in a massive list! Check it out to see if you’ve missed anything, or for a preview of what’s in store if you’re waiting for Collection One! Click the “More” link to see the list… see you on the other side!

Can your city survive this SHOCKWAVE!?

ShockwaveColorPromo600Now on sale from Drive Thru RPG and RPG Now!

Can the city survive her attempts to save it?… Shockwave!

A Power Level 10 Rival, Shockwave is a powerhouse who often winds up causing as much collateral damage as the villains she’s trying to stop! Shockwave is an iconic figure in the Beacon City universe, but can be dropped into any campaign with very little alteration.

Shockwave is a young would-be superhero whose powers make her a formiddable foe, indeed. She’s brash and ready to smash, and all-too-willing to tear up the streets in order to hit the bad guys as hard as she can. A perfect Rival for heroes who try to minimize such damage, she can be a real pain to reign in, or an ally if they need a heavy hitter and are willing to pay the insurance bills. With a few tweaks, she might even make a beautiful disaster of a romantic interest for one of your heroes! Built under the same guidelines for a Power Level 10 Player Character, she can also be used as a handy “Guest Star” for a player visiting your game who doesn’t have a character ready.

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 by METAs agents, a standee to print and play with, and the Hero Lab file for the character!

Fineous Frost arrives for Mutants and Masterminds 3E!

frost-promo-600

He spent decades on ice, and he has no plans to go back… Fineous Frost!

Available now from Drive Thru RPG and RPG Now!

Power Level 10 Rogue, Fineous Frost is a man with a lifetime of criminal experience. Fineous Frost is an iconic character in the Beacon City universe, but can be dropped into any campaign with very little alteration.

Fineous Frost‘s file is designated “Gold” to denote that his powers are the result of external manipulation of some kind. Exactly what kind of chemical cocktail is responsible for his transformation remains a closely guarded secret, but his ability to create and manipulate areas of intense cold are a chilling experience for anyone who would stand in his way. To the world at large, Frost is a reformed ex-convict, setting up a business in the heroes’s home town. In secret, Frost is a more careful criminal, operating from behind the scenes, and he plays well against heroic detectives who are diligent enough to untangle his criminal web to discover the spider at the center. He would also certainly hold a grudge against heroes who carry the legacies of other heroes he faced in his earlier career, before he spent decades years in prison. Or, if one of your heroes is an immortal himself, Frost may be a “blast from the past” to represent the never-ending fight against crime!

The Woman with the Toxic Touch: Acid Beth is now Live!

AcidBeth-600The only thing more deadly than her beauty is her touch… Acid Beth!

Rogues, Rivals & Renegades: Acid Beth is now available from Drive Thru RPG and RPG Now!

A Power Level 10 RogueAcid Beth is the kind of woman every mother warns you about. Acid Beth is an iconic character in the Beacon City universe, but can be dropped into any campaign with very little alteration.

Acid Beth‘s file is designated “Red” to represent her innate power to disintegrate anything she touches. What makes her truly dangerous, however, is her modus operandi. She enjoys bending others to her will and then throwing them under the bus when they start to get wise to her. A thrill-seeker to the bone, she gravitates to power and is often encountered acting as a ‘lieutenant’ to ambitious criminal masterminds or super-crooks. As a nemesis, she may mark one of your heroes as her next conquest, or for revenge if they get the better of her. Either way, she has left a trail of misery in her wake and will continue to do so until someone manages to stop her!

She makes a perfect foe for heroes who use their brains before their brawns, or for heroes dedicated to preventing collateral damage.
