Savage Insider Supplemental: Frisco Freakout Pre-Gens

This is a complete misrepresentation of the actual adventure.
The article "Auspicious Archetypes: The Badass" in Savage Insider Vol. 2 Issue 2 contains a groovy grindhouse adventure called "Frisco Freakout," in which I mention that the heroes are "an eclectic assembly of kung-fu masters, ex-Green Berets, and roller derby queens." It belatedly occured to me that I should have included some pre-gens that were exactly that.

Background: An ex-Green Beret who returned to Oakland determined to clean up the streets, Mack Peters has established a rep on the streets as a cat you do not want to cross. His bachelor pad is home to a hidden cache of weapons big enough to take down a Third World dictatorship.
