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!

The master manipulator, always in the shadows… Zarathustra! Now on @drivethrurpg !

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.

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!

A world-class supervillain for your Mutants and Masterminds games: El Conquistador!

conquistador

Now available on Drive Thru RPG and RPGNow!

An immortal bent on world domination… El Conquistador!

A Power Level 13 RogueEl Conquistador has spent centuries seizing power! El Conquistador is an iconic character in the Beacon City universe, but can be dropped into any campaign with very little alteration.

 

El Conquistador’s file is designated “Black” to represent the unknown origins of his abilities. He is armed with an indomitable will and artifacts of both mystical and technological origins. He is a world-class villain with world-class ambitions. Nothing short of the utter conquest of Earth will satisfy his thirst for power! This megamaniacal outlook makes him a perfect nemesis for heroes or teams who operate on a global scale, while his immortal background can easily connect to heroes with similar backgrounds. If your hero has walked the Earth for long enough, it is very likely they have crossed paths (and possibly swords) with El Conquistador in the past!

Dr. Grimm wants to make you a part of her next story…

RRR DrGrimm-Cover600Available now on Drive Thru RPG!

“We’re all mad here…” Dr. Grimm!

A Power Level 10 Rogue, Dr. Grimm is a terrible fairy-tale themed villain ready to be added to any Mutants and Masterminds campaign.

Dr. Grimm is burdened with the terrible legacy of her predecessor, but she carries it with a smile. She can be the ultimate foil for a hero who specializes in detective work or outwitting criminals. Grimm is a perfect example of the kind of madness that makes comic book villains immortal in the eyes of readers. Woe betide a hero who becomes a character in one of her stories, her crimes may have fairy tale motifs, but she is no joke!

A Power Level 10 Renegade, Nikki Tesla is a fun addition to any Mutants and Masterminds campaign. A child prodigy turned self-styled anarchist revolutionary, Nikki Tesla can be a perfect foil for a more ‘traditional’ super-genius hero. Alternately, she could be just the ally your players need to help them out-invent a more dastardly foe… at least, this week? Easily played as Rogue, Rival, or even romantic interest, Nikki Tesla is certainly primed to make your PCs’s lives more interesting!

Rayzer-Cover640

Power Level 11 threat on his own, Rayzer is almost never alone. As a Renegade, Rayzer acts outside the law and by his own code. Whether the players see him as a villain or hero will very much depend on how they relate to him and the actions he takes. Rayzer is presented as a special deluxe-sized issue of Rogues, Rivals & Renegades with a map of his base and gorgeous art of his amazing submersible vehicle, the Karkarius! You’ll also get details on “Rayzer’s Raiders,” the devoted soldiers who have allied themselves with Rayzer.
