Each Pulp Villains release will detail a nefarious non-player-character, ready to be dropped into your pulp-genre Savage Worlds game, fully statted, with details on their methods, motives, special gear, henchmen, allies and more — along with a collection of adventure hooks for their use.
In this installment:
AN UNDERGROUND EMPIRE!
A MERCENARY ARMY!
A TERRIFYING DESPOT!
WHAT LURKS BELOW…
“Oh, yes, my children! Like you, I have been hunted. Like you, my birthright was lost to misadventure and folly. While you toiled in darkness, deep beneath the surface, you lost your way. You forgot your illustrious history! And above you, weak-minded simpletons have forged kingdoms that are but pale imitations of your forebears. They have grown fat and decadent, and are unworthy of their purloined place in the sun.
“But no more! I will restore your kingdom. I will rule. And I will nally reap the rewards owed to me…and elevate you back to your rightful glory!
“Woe betide any who stand against the Subterranean Monarch! Forward, my Mantle Men! Forward to victory, in the name of your god-king!”
Pulp Villains: The Subterranean Monarch, by Keith A. Garrett and Eric Trautmann, uses the Savage Worlds rules system, as featured in THRILLING TALES 2nd Edition, and is available for purchase at RPGNow and Drive-Thru RPG.
