The Echoes of Heaven Bestiary/The Tainted Tears (OGL Version) [Final Redoubt Press]
Pages: 93

Foul and tainted creatures stalk this way.

Veteran game designer Robert J Defendi brings you a world of darkness and danger, where a monolithic church has split into dozens of quarreling factions and holy war looms like a shadow. Here, strength and brutality win the day and only those with the most faith, honor, and courage can stand against the terrible tyranny of those who would enslave everyone of a different belief, a different philosophy, a different race.

Worse, it is a world infected by the very fabric of Hell itself.

Towering Nephilim. Wicked Cambions. Noble Angels and fallen Devils. The legions of Hell. The dreaded Elemental Wraiths. Since the release of The Echoes of Heaven, our products have been filled with hints and descriptions of these creatures. Some of them are familiar. Some of them are new. Look no further, because here you will find the creatures unique to The Echoes of Heaven.

USHER Dossiers (ICONS) [Vigilance Press]
The official setting for the “Vigilance Universe” that has appeared in our popular WWII line is now put under the spotlight. It is a world where metahumans have existed for tens of thousands of years, walking alongside ordinary men and women, sometimes in secret, other times reshaping the world to suit their desires.

In ancient times, men called these beings gods, while today they serve nation states or fight for their own beliefs and ambitions. The setting continues into the present day, where the aftermath of the Scion’s brief conquest of the planet defines the setting going forward.

This brand new metahuman universe can be used as the setting for your ICONS games, or combined with other popular metahuman settings from comics or television.

The USHER Dossiers features the following:
  • A full timeline of the setting from 70,000 BCE until the present day. This timeline devotes special attention to WWII, providing the game master with numerous events and adventure hooks she can incorporate into her campaign.
  • The Secrets of the Minuteman: For every war America has fought, the Minuteman has risen to defend her. The full secrets of the Minuteman are revealed in the USHER Dossiers.
  • Old Glory and the Savant: Two friends who have saved the world again and again, now on opposite sides of a conflict only they understand.
  • Exclusive! Live from Metahuman Network News (MNN), Exclusive brings you the metahuman beat as only a metahuman can! Once they walked the world in secret, then they styled themselves as gods, then national heroes, now metahumans have entered the “reality show” generation!
  • Old Guard and MAN: The Old Guard are a “human first” organization who believe humans must defend themselves against a rising tide of metahuman influence. MAN, the Mutant Army of Nationalism believes metahumans are the next step in human evolution and destined to the rule the planet. Innocent men and women are caught in the crossfire between these two terrorist groups.
  • Pawn Broker: Need a government propped up or taken down? Are you a mastermind who needs a little hired muscle to conquer the world? Well the Pawn Broker is here for you friend. Bringing you the finest in state of the art battle suit technology. No budget is too large or too small.
  • Time Enforcement Agency (TEA): Patrolling the lanes of the space-time continuum, TEA protects the integrity of history from meddlesome time travelers and records the past for their mysterious leader, The Chronicle.
  • The Scion: This intergalactic despot had the entire Earth in his grasp for three years. Though the planet is free once again, the effects of his rule threaten to tear the planet apart. And deep within the walls of Rock City, the Mad Emperor lies caged, plotting his revenge.
