zarathustra-color600Now available on Drive Thru RPG:

The master manipulator, always in the shadows… Zarathustra!

Power Level 9 Rogue, Zarathustra is the perfect sociopath. Zarathustra is an iconic character in the Beacon City universe, but can be dropped into any campaign with very little alteration.

Zarathustra’s file is designated “Orange” to identify his focus on skills and techniques bordering on the paranormal. More than anything else he employs, Zarathustra’s intelligence and complete lack of conscience make him a formidable adversary for a hero or team of heroes that catch his attention. He is bored of mundane challenges, only a truly brilliant foe will catch his interest, but he plays the long game and never reveals himself until he is sure of victory. The perfect Moriarty for your campaign’s Sherlock Holmes, he makes a very memorable mastermind indeed.

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 toVigilance 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 Aaron Sullivan with full color art by Alex Williamson, and layout by Ruben Byrd. Designed for the Mutants and Masterminds Third Editionroleplaying game.

Now available from Drive Thru RPG!

He’s ready to tear up the streets… Road Hazard!

 

Power Level 11 Rogue, Road Hazard is a highwayman with a need for speed! Road Hazard is an iconic character in the Beacon City universe, but can be dropped into any campaign with very little alteration.

 

Road Hazard’s file is designated “Blue” to identify the super-normal technology that he uses in his crimes. That technology takes the form of a powerful vehicle he “liberated” from an advanced weapon development company. No ordinary car, the X-9 Assault Vehicle gives Road Hazard a deadly array of weapons and speed when he hits the streets. He’s constantly looking for races or other opportunities to test the limits of this supermachine, and will quickly identify heroes with super-cars of their own as rivals to be challenged. His criminal activities will earn the attention of any hero who wants to make their city, and particularly their streets, safer by putting him behind bars.

The Electric Chair was just the beginning… Breaker!

breaker-promo600The electric chair was just the beginning… Breaker!

Now available on Drive Thru RPG!

Power Level 12 Rogue, Breaker is an iconic character in the Beacon City universe, but can be dropped into any campaign with very little alteration. A prison escapee with nothing left to lose, he’s ready to use his mastery over electricity to stake his claim in the roughest part of town!

Breaker’s file is designated “Red” to indicate the innate mastery of electricity that makes him so formidable. Once thought of as the toughest man in his cell block, now he’s the most wanted man in Beacon City. Never willing to back down, and always ready to prove how tough he is, Breaker is very confrontational and very dangerous. He’s a man who has always used fear and intimidation to get what he wants, and now he’s nearly untouchable thanks to his newly-discovered ability to charge his body with massive pulses of electricity. The perfect villain for a hero who wants to keep the streets ‘clean’ of criminals, he’s also a challenge for any hero who relies on melee tactics to overcome their foes. With a mean streak a mile wide, Breaker also holds grudges with a passion, and will not hesitate to track down any hero who manages to defeat him in front of others.

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.
