Better Angels: The Good, The Bad, and the Hunky

They're actually fighting over whether Mountain Dew: Code Red or Mountain Dew Voltage is the best flavor. Plot twist: The demon backs Voltage. Better Angels is a an upcoming One Roll Engine role playing game from Greg Stolze and Arc Dream. It’s currently in playtesting and we were fortunate enough to get our hands on the draft. Caleb ran the playtest scenario so we could get familiar with the game before we dive into a campaign. In this scenario, we all play supervillains in an existing group of bad guys, out to rule the American Midwest with an iron fist….in theory. However, after a horrifically violent outing at an Occupy rally and a fight with a ‘superhero’, we get a job offer from another supervillain. The job isn’t what it seems though so will our protagonists find out the truth behind the scheme and what will they do about it?
