¡Viva el Zorro! Don Audre Ruiz

¡Viva el Zorro! is a scenario I will be running at Chupacabracon IV over the weekend May 12th through 14th in Austin,TX, this year. It’s kind of a test run for Los Enmascarados, a proposed Savage Worlds Super Powers Companion-compatible mini-setting of masked avengers in independent Mexico before the Mexican-American War.

In ¡Viva el Zorro!, the players take on the roles of Zorro’s supporting cast from the original Johnston McCulley stories – his fiancée Lolita Pulido, his friend Don Audre Ruiz, his servant Bernardo, the reformed pirate Bardoso, the boastful Sgt. Gonzales, and others – as they organize a plan to rescue Zorro from the grasping Capitán Torello. Characters are created using the Rising Stars campaign style and the Pulp Heroes Power Level, with some interpolations from Deadlands Reloaded.  

from Zorro: The Chronicles

Don Audre Ruiz
Seasoned Wild Card

Don Audre Ruiz is the best friend of both Don Diego Vega and his alter-ego Zorro. Popular and vivacious, he is the unofficial leader of the young caballeros who rejoice in Zorro's deeds. Secretly, though, he pines for the same adulation as his friend and is eager to prove his own worth.
