Reverb Gamers Master List #16

Who was the most memorable foe you’ve ever come up against in a game? How did you beat him/her/it? Or did you?

A friend of mine ran a Champions game and his favorite villain group was the Blue Oyster Cult.  Main villains were named after various BOC songs, such as Vera Gemini.  They were pretty good villains, and were directly responsible for one of my characters getting his powers.  I had a guy in college who was an extremely promising pianist, he got on a plane, and didn’t get off.  Later he found himself sitting in a Scottsdale resort parking lot in a cherry vintage Corvette with title and registration in his name.  And absolutely no memory of how he got there or how he got his powers.  He was a flying sonic blaster with perfect pitch and was a lot of fun to run.

Another GM, still Champions, had a group of bad guys called The Video Villains.  They all had powers based on classic arcade video and pinball games from the 70’s and 80’s.  They were a lot of fun.

And I have no idea how we beat either group.  They were both recurring groups, so it was more a matter of driving them off or capturing some of them, they’ll always be back in a few weeks.

Good times.
