11 x 17 picture here This super-team was created by my current Champions tabletop roleplaying group around 2008 or so. It comprises Kabosh (a male demon who bonded with a good witch), Silverbolt (a speedster), Knightman (a power armored vigilante), Nemesis (a teleporting martial artist), the Black Enchantress (a sorceress), and Magic Marker (an artist who can reshape reality). Kabosh and the Black Enchantress were originally villains that were turned to the heroic side by the Li family (a family of metahumans that ran an academy for heroes), while Knightman, Nemesis, and Magic Marker were all students at the academy. Upon graduation, the heroes traveled to New York City and made their home base in Freeport (a fictional district of the city). The campaign has been running for over a decade, although not consistently. The heroes formed a super-team called The Punishers, owing to their harsher and more violent response to mystical, alien, mutant, and technological threats than four-color heroes (Knightman very much behaves more like the Punisher and Batman). Silverbolt joined the team in 2015. She is my character, and was created for another group in 2013 that disbanded a year later. Still, I had a fondness for that character so I brought her into the Punishers. She's probably the most well-adjusted, least violent, and nicest member of the team besides Kabosh's host (who is now a federal agent). Nemesis' player sadly passed away in January 2018, and I commissioned this piece to honor the history of the gaming group and to provide a permanent memory of all the characters. This team portrait was drawn, colored, and rendered by the multi-talented and amazing John Becaro.
A "Duumvirate" is a government or rule by two. A Triumvirate is a government or rule by three. Quadrumvirate, rule by four, and so forth. So, thinking outside the box, I contemplated how far it could be taken. So I came up with Tricentumvirate, a group of 300 who rule together. But that's all I have so far. I need to brainstorm where to go from here. Are they an illuminati or secret society? Are they an overt group dedicated to establishing dominance over...? Are they a "union" of sorts? And who are they? Politicians and businessmen? Crime lords, terrorists , mercenaries and assassins? Supervillains? Aliens? Are they even perhaps mega or master villains? Are they all equally powerful or are some far more powerful than others? Do they traffic in differing kinds of power--political, economic, temporal, physical, magical, etc.? Could it be a benevolent organization? Amoral or neutral? A secret society that inducts "worthy" individuals, including PCs? Just throwing it out there and seeing what the fertile, fevered minds here can come up with.
