The Earth Tier begins with a bang! The Firewall team moves in to finally meet with agents of Manjappa, the mastermind behind Know Evil, at the Hotel California, one of the most dangerous and chaotic habitats in the system. The agents pick up a new agent, Quoth, a Xeno expert, as they head in, but they quickly find out Quoth may be in over his head. Will his help be enough for this delicate operation? They must bring the unique artifact stolen from the Lunar bank to lure Manjappa’s agents in but then ambush them to get a lead on Manjappa himself. This balancing act will push the team to their limits and it’s possible the entire operation ends in this mission.
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?
In this episode of the Heroes of New Arcadia, the end draws near! As the truth behind Nemesis and Ragnarok is revealed, the Heroes of New Arcadia must deal with its ramifications.
