High Tech Mysticism & High Caliber Adventure- Occupy Dr. Doom's Latveria

Out of all of the Marvel Villians of the Fanatastic Four no one except Galactus comes close to Victor Von Doom! No one.  For a super Merc campaign campaign to have a great patron you need one who pays on time, demands results, & has the technology no how to give the best toys! If the situation demands it.
This guy makes Steve Jobs look like a choir boy!

With all of the happenings of  the  many comic universes you can bet your bottom dollar that Doom is going to be investigating them! He's not  about to waste valuable technological resources when he can simply pay a few mercs send them in his name & get the results.

Hell they might not even know if their dealing with the real doom or simply another doom bot. 

There are 4 reasons for working for Dr.Doom : 
  1. He pays on time & in cash according to his Marvel Universe entry 
  2. He's honorable which means he will pay 
  3. He will not send resources on full suicide missions. Yes your characters are expendable but it doesn't me he's a murderer only a despot 
  4. He has a time machine able to go forward, backward, & sideways in time. Alternative Earths, mystic dimensions, places beyond the ken of men are not beyond the reach of  Doom!

"Know this now—and know it forever! DOCTOR DOOM has no rivals! None! NONE! In all the world, there is none to match me! None can rival DR. DOOM in total mastery of the diabolical!!"
(Text by Stan Lee, FANTASTIC FOUR #85)

Learn about Latveria, home of Doom and self-proclaimed "Gem of the Balkans." Discover Symkaria, home to Silver Sabre and her Wild Pack. Wonder at the wondrous Mount Wundagore in Transia, sometime-home to the High Evolutionary and prison of the Elder God Chthon. All this and more is waiting within The Lands of DR. DOOM Campaign Set."

Gaining Employment With Doom

  1. My Mystery Men! campaign just finished with an assault on that Castle Doom pictured above. I recast it as a Nazi castle, but the map came in very handy.

  2. Matt - I love that map! It's been used numerous times in my campaigns as well! Thanks for the comment! There's more to come!
    Brutorz Bill - This is an idea that just won't quit! There's more action coming up! Doom is perhaps one of my favorites! Glad you liked the post man!
    More coming soon!

  3. Actually, Doom doesn't always pay his debts.

    Just ask Luke Cage!

    Sweet Christmas, indeed!

  4. :-) There's more to come on this very,very soon!
