¡Viva el Zorro!: Señor Zorro

Man, I still miss this comic.
¡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. Gonzalez, 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
Señor Zorro
Legendary Wild Card (150 XP)

When Don Diego Vega was 15, he beheld the whipping of a Native American neophyte by soldiers. He resolved on that day to live a double life, hiding his increasing martial prowess behind a mask of foppishness. When he reached his early 20s, he sallied forth in the disguise of Señor Zorro, a black-clad highwayman who aids the oppressed.

When ¡Viva el Zorro! begins, Señor Zorro has been captured and awaits only the governor's arrival from Monterey before his execution. Capitán Torello has of yet to reveal his identity to the pueblo, hoping for a grand unmasking before Zorro is hanged.

Assuming the players succeed in rescuing Don Diego, they will be able to take turns running Señor Zorro during the remainder of the escape scene.

Review: Anno Dracula—One Thousand Monsters

Well, that was weird. I jest, but Anno Dracula—One Thousand Monsters is not the book I was expecting, presenting strange and twist...
