Review – Threat Report: King Babylon

2 February, 2012

King Babylon, possessed of nearly godlike powers and a notable lack of self-control is the kind of villain you do not want to have to tangle with but he is just too dangerous to ignore.  A useful character to use as a reoccurring threat and plot device.

Threat Report: King Babylon is a 4-page PDF (2-pages if you remove the cover letter and OGL page) for the Mutants & Masterminds (3rd Edition) RPG written by Aaron Sullivan and published by Green Ronin Publishing.  This is issue 6 of Green Ronin’s Threat Report line for M&M (3rd).

After a cover letter from the governmental organization AEGIS, which may serve as a useful prop for a game, the layout is primary traditional two columns and the easily readable.  The only art is a full color illustration of the King Babylon himself (partly reproduced as a black and white photo attached to the cover letter).  Additionally, a HeroLab file for King Babylon is included.

King Babylon is a completely statted PL 13 character.  He is an interesting character, vastly powerful and difficult to defeat but lacking in foresight and dangerously self absorbed.  King Babylon can challenge a group of heroes because of his raw power but is in not much of a thinker and his planning, unless working with others, will be rudimentary.  He also holds grudges, so he may be a good choice for a villain to throw in when nothing else is planned for just a good fight.

Disclosure: As a featured reviewer for RPGNow/DriveThroughRPG, I received my copy of this product for free from the publisher for the purpose of this review.
