    S.A.A.T.

    Today’s mission? Rebuild S.A.A.T. I know, who the fuck is S.A.A.T. right? Well, decades ago when I was first getting started GMing for Champions, there were all these villain groups around. Deathstroke, Eurostar, Terror Inc. … well, those were sorta old hat by that time so I assembled my own group. I gathered up solo villains nobody was using and stuck them together just for a change of pace from Deathstroke. With my personal history with Rainbow Archer, I just had to bring her into things, then Shamrock, just ‘cuz I love the guy … anyway I finished it off with Dragonmaster, Fire and Ice and Thunderbolt. Five was a good number.

    Well, along the way I decided I try my hand at making my own villains … the Witches came out of that. I was evil even back then. The two girls turned into a pain in the ass for my players. First of, I am playing with all guys and these two are smokin’, which one really must play up a little, right? Now give them a couple of weak minded hormonal teen boys to play with and … blithering idiots. I pretty quickly figured out that my tactical sense was a hell of a lot better then any of my players. It was a condition that never changed. The Twins, pretty much made fools of the team, with the rest of SAAT poking them with sticks.

    Oh, that’s right, why the name? I didn’t want another kill hungry group or one that was just out for money, no, I needed a plan. Enter Timemaster. This guy’s lost in Time so let’s get him to hire SAAT to steal all the good research on time travel … the the stuff he needed to build a time machine. Okay, we got superthieves. Non-deadly. They don’t even threaten the normals. In fact several times one or more have been captured rather than endanger normals. This sorta made them more friendly enemies then say Eurostar. My team started to get to know them … and all this lead to Zodiac.

    -look for the next post-
