My Players gang up on my Bad Guys. So I've created a list of abilities to handle this situation. The powers are named for various members of the Control Freak World Tour, a group that has been around in one form or another since 1984.

 

"In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed."
--William Ernest Henley, Invictus
