Character Highlight: Communism (FAE)

Often the best thing about a movie is its villain, and this applies to role playing games as well. Sometimes you need the perfect, unstoppable, monolithic BBEG to oppose your players. Who better, then, to grind them into submission than an inhuman, unrestrained, oppressive government?

Watch your players quake in fear when they go toe-to-toe against COMMUNISM.

That's one diverse adventuring party!
