Mutants & Masterminds First Appearances: Ruadàn and Samson

Here are two more heroes from our First Appearance level backers from the Deluxe Hero’s Handbook Kickstarter campaign.

First on the docket is Ruadàn from Charlie McElvey, the mastermind behind Xion Studios, the Watchguard Sorcebook, and more. Ruadàn is heir to the mythical sword Fragarach and with it commands the wind with godlike power. And, from Tymm Brown, we have Samson! A legacy hero and former professional wrestler who’s grown to become one of the most powerful heroes of his generation!
