Metahumans News
There's been a lot going on since the launch of Metahumans Rising. While there have been some setbacks, we've also been hard at work, brainstorming, testing, and playing with potential supplements and adventure ideas for Metahumans Rising. After looking at a number of story ideas, some of which may show up in later supplements, for our first offering following the core book we locked onto the idea of tools to expand the world around the characters. Today we begin the next phase of testing for:

Giant Sized World Builders #1: Siege on Base [Alpha]& Neighborhood Watch
Consisting of two one shot adventures World Builders 1 gives groups new tools on for building super bases, and exploring new parts of the campaign city. Each adventure begins with a shared framework that allows players and GMs to contribute to the base or neighborhood. After crafting these locations it's time for the action! With easy to use adventure guides to help GMs transition from design to destruction as the adventure unfolds. Of course, it helps to have some baddies to bust heads with. To add to the GMs toolbox we are also testing several new and expanded factions.

The Deadheads have evolved from simple drug dealers to a society of immortals using the vulnerable to bolster their ranks and find those worthy of their gifts.

The Foundry are a growing pseudo-religious organization with a dark secret. While they claim to ready the host for enlightenment and rebirth what they mean is the parasitic conversion of their body by alien hosts.

From Mercs to Military, this is another expanded entry that provides examples of highly competent people without powers, and low powered Metahumans with military training. This entry also provides examples of common military vehicles.

Finally the Rippers are smugglers and tech enthusiasts re-purposing alien technology to improve their chances of survival.

Metahuman News
After reports of Backers receiving damaged books began coming in we reached out to the printer. We wanted to make things right, but had no idea what could be done, or why were getting multiple reports coming in. After a number of phone calls, and several email chains, it looks like we are going to be able to replace those books for our Backers. An update went out earlier today to inform our Backers and get everything moving to take care of everyone who was impacted.

When we started the Metahumans Rising Kickstarter we wanted to give players the tools to create their own super hero tales and adventures. Part of that is making sure that the tools players have are in the best possible condition.

Metahumans News:
In our last update we hinted around an expansion that expands on world building building tools. It's still not official, but the concept is fairly simple, a collection of short collaborative adventures that allow all the players to participate in expanding the world. The shape of what these adventures may look like is still in flux so we don't want to make anything official just yet.

No matter what direction things go, it's given us a reason to look at some of the background characters in the core book including mercenaries and the street gangs. The great thing about the mercs is that they can be dropped into a ton of adventures, basically whenever someone has the funds to buy high level muscle in bulk. As for the Deadheads, I wish we had more space in the core book to have explored the gangs.

When looking at the gangs in the core book I can see the influences from the movies like Escape from New York, Surf Nazis Must Die, and the Warriors. Maybe I was just a sucker for very colorful gangs from the late 70s and 80s. While it helped us create some unique and colorful gangs, none of the gangs really felt like they rose to the level of baddies like Intergang, and the Hand. Consequently, we've begun looking at elevating one the gangs from the core book, adding deeper hidden powers behind one of the gangs. Overall we're happy with the look and feel of the updated gang and should be ready to talk about them in a future update.

Side Note: If you thought the Masters looked a lot like the Gramercy Riffs, there may be a reason for that.

Metahumans News:
The wait is over! This past week saw the arrival of physical copies of Metahumans Rising for backers. There are still copies in flight but reports are coming in from across the US that the Metahumans have landed.

While some of you may already know, we have relocated to California, and over the last several months have been looking for a home. Well, we've found a new place, and that means we are able to get back down to the business of writing.

This last week we began work on a possible expansion for Metahumans Rising. While we can't go into details just yet, one of the goals is to expand on the Campaign Scope and World Building section with tools the GM and players can use after the campaign has begin. More on this as it develops.
