Valiant Heroic Roleplaying – Armstrong

New Logo B

There was a world before our own. A great series of civilizations that were wiped away in the great cataclysm. The event was so great that it became the inspiration for the biblical flood of Noah.

The truth is a lot stranger.

The truth gave birth to Armstrong, one of the three immortal brothers.

Cursed with immortality, Armstrong has walked the Earth since the time of the Old Testament. He has seen everything the world has to offer and been the target of many seeking his immortality.

But mostly, he got high. He got high a lot. Drunk as a skunk too. And he fucked a lot of women. Probably some men too.

The word is “hedonist” and it should have a picture of Armstrong next to it in the dictionary.

After many years of enjoying life, he found himself working security at a bar in New York. During one of his shifts, he crossed paths with a brainwashed assassin lead to believe he was the anti-Christ. While Armstrong is the farthest from a saint, he ain’t evil and he doesn’t want to see the world end again.

The two eventually joined forces in the most unlikely pairing: the hedonist and the Christian fundamentalist. Together, they fight every conspiracy theory in the world from the One Percent to Area 51.

Seriously, this is a great series. Only complaint is the artists can never decide if Armstrong is fat or muscular.
