"'Manos' The Hands of Fate" Villains for Savage Worlds

If you haven't seen "Manos:" The Hands of Fate, go watch the classic Mystery Science Theater 3000 episode. I'll wait.


Are you caught up now? Good.

I've run a "Manos"-inspired game. That time, I deliberately juiced up the bad guys so that the Master was actually fearsome (and maybe a vampire? I forget) and Torgo was a Wilbur Whateley-style Old One spawn. These are not stats for that game. These are stats for that gloriously terrible movie you just subjected yourself to.

(I own a copy of the digitally-restored Blu-Ray version of the film with no sarcastic robots to lighten the mood.)

It's a Frank Frazetta of Frank Zappa!
