Bloodforce


Power Level:
Game system: DC Heroes Role-Playing Game

Context

This organization is an original creation. We often call these “homemades” or “homebrewed” – think home cooking or craft beer.

Many of these were created to take part in tabletop role-playing game sessions. Others were invented as a creative writing exercise, often as part of a community event. This specific organization was part of a RPG campaign run by writeups.org contributor Bil.


Overview

Bloodforce is a terrorist organization at the beck and call of Prime Oversoul, the mad cyborg. It is nominally dedicated to world domination, but is, in actuality, designed to destroy organic life. Only prime Oversoul knows its true intentions. Hidden within its secret underground fortress is an entire army of androids, which will emerge once Bloodforce has finally brought the world to its knees – or when Bloodforce is on the verge of being defeated, whichever comes first.

It is organized along binary lines. This means that two agents make a pair, two pairs make a team, two teams make a squad, and so on. About one out of every four agents is an Armor agent, which are a separate division from the standard agents, and are the personal soldiers of Lieutenant Steel. The metahuman agents are likewise a seperate division, under the direct command of Aryan.


History

In 1978, the villain Aryan was contacted by a mysterious entity calling himseld Prime Oversoul, who appealed to his dedication to the Nazi dream in order to form a terrorist organization. Originally set up in the same pattern as Hitler’s army, with the armor agents acting as the “luftwaffe”. The force was “officially” christened Bloodforce on April 6, 1979.

In 1981, they engaged in a pitched battle against UNION, resulting in the death of several members of UNION, numerous agents, and many civilians. This would soidify the worthiness of the goal, as Aryan saw this as a great victory despite their own losses.

In 1995, the Metahuman arm took numerous Armor agents without the consent of Lieutenant Steel, and tried to take over a reunited Germany. They failed, and harpy and Tempest were apparantly killed. However, Prime Oversoul’s technology saved them, something that cannot be said for the slain heroes or agents. Lieutenant Steel took exception to this, and they began a bloodless fued for several years.

In 1998 Bloodforce was completely reorganized, with Lieutenant Steel and Aryan as equal in power, and Prime Oversoul as the absolute master.


Equipment

The most obvious equipment used by Bloodforce are the Bloodforce Armors, the body armor worn by standard agents, and their rifles. Bloodforce also has a small fleet of F-15 Eagle jets, configured for various roles and painted blood-red, and various special-purpose vehicles.

The androids that Prime Oversoul keeps hidden from the rest of Bloodforce are 12 feet tall (about 4m), and have whatever stats a GM decides for them. Since they will only appear if Bloodforce finally wins, or they are about to be destroyed, they should be pretty tough. There are also androids designed to face each member of the metahuman arm. As well, all of the Armors and Weapons have hidden deactivator chips, which will only be utilized once the androids are released.
