Adamant Entertainment is pleased to present the latest in our new line of Thrilling Tales products: Pulp Villains!
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:
A MYSTERIOUS ARISTOCRAT!
A MERCENARY LEGION!
AN ARMY OF AUTOMATONS!
A DEVIOUS LORD OF ASSASSINS… ON A MISSION OF CONQUEST!
“THE ORB OF HYPERBOREA! For millennia it has been the plaything of cultists and kings. It has shaped the course of empires greater than modern man has ever seen!
“Generations of wise men and would-be conquerors have tried to puzzle out its secrets. Adventurers such as yourself have ventured to the darkest corners of the Earth for fragments—fragments—of the Priest-Kings’ forgotten lore. They could sense the power slumbering within the Orb, but no matter what they tried, no matter how much blood they spilled, it refused to obey them.
“Do you know why they failed? Because the Orb was waiting for the right person to unlock it. It is a relic of an age that respected no laws, a time when men of courage and ruthless spirit could shape the world to suit their desires. A world where a man could spill so much blood that he was no different from a god.
“That world will soon be reborn. I will wake the power of the Orb and use it to unleash a legion of steel and fire that will crush the petty empires of the world! I will grind the great nations of Earth beneath my heel, and mankind will bow before the might of Korga!
“A new age is dawning, my friend. A pity you will not live to see it.”
A sinister aristocrat with a shadowy past and bent on conquest and destruction! From his secret fortress on a tiny Greek isle, he recruits—or presses into service—the brave and the ruthless. He commands the Fekete Sereg, a deadly band of mercenaries. His allies include a pirate queen and smuggler. Armed with a mystic Hyperborean artifact, he strikes forth from the bridge of THE KRAKEN, a skyscraper-sized submersible that can also walk on land! Among his weapons: The Iron Hussars, ancient war machines that obey his every command!
