Disclaimer: I was one of a handful of BASH enthusiasts asked by the author to double-check the stats for the characters so this review will avoid specifically critiquing the character builds in detail.
What do you get? A super-fantastic deal for just 99 cents!
Adversaries: The Triad is a mini-villain rooster featuring the three members of the Triad, a demon, a cultist leader, cultist minions, the legendary super hero (The BADGE), and finally two well written mini-adventures (2 pages each - similar to Savage Worlds “One Sheets”)! And there is more! You get police mug shots of the Triad (great hand-outs for the players at the game table) and stand-up cut-outs of all the characters for those of you into miniatures play.
These villains, the Triad, are a group of treasure stealing professional thieves specializing in magical artifacts. Hoarfrost has ice powers; Hypersonic has speed and sonic powers; and Moonstone, the leader, is all muscle (or should I say all rock?). All three gained there powers through the use of a magical ritual which transferred the supernatural traits of various mystical artifacts into themselves. Now with their unique powers and skills in artifact research, archeology and ‘procurement’, the three sell their abilities to the worlds wealthy; helping the affluent to find and acquire other rare and powerful relics (and becoming very rich in the process).
The two adventures, The "Demon at the Museum" and "Badge of Honor", are two excellent stories with a very Silver Age feel and both are great for an evening’s play. The first involves an attempted heist by the Triad at a museum featuring some of the rare collection of the late magician Mordecai the Magnificent that backfires for the crooks (or does it?). The second adventure has the Triad attempting to steal a powerful artifact during a ceremony honoring the Badge (a great hero of legendary renown) which would serve as an excellent introductory adventure.
In summary, Adversaries: The Triad is a great one-stop shop for villains, adventure and an npc hero at a great value. The artwork is fantastic. The paper standees and wanted posters are great and useful tabletop elements.
Oh, and did I mention… That the price is unbeatable!
