Mass Effect FATE - In The Shadow of the Shepard
Lord Evil, of the Dark Tower of Evil
Dreamed up by a wannabe hero, assembled from illegal technology, and programmed for evil.
High Concept: 8 FOOT EVIL MECHANOID OVERLORD
Trouble: I’M NOT BAD, I’M JUST DRAWN THA…NO, NO, I’M BAD.
Background: NOT JUST ANOTHER METALLIC, MENACING FACE.
Race: Customized, Armored Mech Refresh cost: 3
+2 points of Armor
Mechanoid endurance: +2 on rolls on endurance checks to resist fatigue.
THE BACKDOOR IS FOR SERVANTS.
Overlords love an entrance. Compel: Overlords do not sneak. When sneaking into a hostile environment would be tactically beneficial, Lord Evil menacingly stride in the face of danger. Overlords DO NOT sneak!
YOU WOULD DO WELL TO OBEY MY COMMANDS.
Lord Evil was not programmed to accept orders. He is well versed in using his intimidating manner to get his own way. Compel: Lord Evil was not programmed to take orders, and none should presume to command him.
FINE LINE BETWEEN HILARIOUS AND TERRIFYING.
There is something inherently comical about a giant robot in a cape, making threats; until people start dying, and everyone realizes he is dead serious. Should his threats fall upon deaf, or worse, laughing ears, Lord Evil’s initial act of horrific violence often catches his enemies off guard. Compel: With sentience comes ego. Any reaction to Lord Evil that is deemed inappropriate could lead to an immediately violent retort.
NO SECOND CHANCES, I’M THAT SORT OF MAN.
Deceitful underlings will not be suffered. Lord Evil expects his subjects to stick to their word; should they betray his trust and violence ensues, Lord Evil is unmerciful and brutal in his attack. Compel: Wise man say, forgiveness is divine, but never pay full price for late pizza; also murder the delivery man. People make mistakes, and change their minds. Apologies aren’t always easy for an Evil Overlord to accept.
IS THIS ALL THAT YOU ARE?
Lord Evil was built to last, and can take an astonishing amount of punishment. As a consequence, it can be extremely disheartening to hit your enemy with your best shot, only to see them continuing to stride towards you with their almost comically large sword. Compel: Lord evil can become overconfident, if he assumes that the attack he just withstood was, in fact, his foes’ best shot.

High atop the peaks of forlorn widows; through the cavern of endless shadows; across the plains of golden hills; through the swamp of sinking horses; and well past the village of endless sidequests lies the dark, foreboding, evilly majestic Dark Tower of Evil. From High atop this high atop tower, Lord Evil rules over the realm with a massive, iron gauntlet. After years of uncontested rule, a peerless yet noble hero from a faraway land fought through the many dangers on the way to the Dark Tower; scaled it’s treacherous heights, and challenged Lord Evil for the sake of the kingdom. The brave and mighty warrior stood firm against this terrifying villain, until his head was punched clean off by a single blow from Lord Evil’s mighty gauntlet. The Dark Lord continued his rule unopposed.
Jadeon Van Heurenson’s sudden, yet unsurprising death on his own privately owned and operated adventure planet was a media event only because of the massive family fortune that now blew in the wind. Authorities arriving on scene to investigate were left with no doubt that Jadeon had indeed been killed by his own carefully crafted villain, yet tech analysts had no explanation for why the safety protocols had disengaged. “Lord Evil” had been deactivated by members of the staff, and both the robot and it’s surprisingly top of the line arsenal of equipment were taken into custody.
During the trip to c-sec, several attempts to make off with the robot were made by outside agencies, however the only losses were some of the higher tech equipment the mech had been outfitted with. Lord Evil arrived safely at the Citadel. After being held idle for several weeks, Lord Evil was signed out of C-Sec by one Celerity Shepard, however Commander Shepard left the citadel before she could collect the mech. Reactivated, with a fresh set of walking papers, and no one in the office willing to get close enough to the mech to deactivate it, Lord Evil of the Dark Tower of Evil strides out of C-Sec, and surveys this new land.
Engaging mission protocols…
Lord Evil is exactly what you would imagine an 8 foot tall evil robot would look like. When he strides into a room, he is often accompanied by this, emanating from his external sound system.
