The South Warriors are a team based in the South American continent, but
covering the whole Latin America. As a result of several military
dictatorial governments in the 70 and 80’s, the region was always
ignored in the main global discussions, but in the end of the 80’s, an
8-man team was formed to protect those countries from internal and
Importance of the Player Characters:
Very important. South America is still a region with little importance
in the world despite the great amount of superhumans in Brazil,
therefore it will be difficult for an interaction with any well-known
superhuman/superteam around the globe. As a result, most of the time the
players will have to deal themselves with the situations.
The Global Guardians Universe is a four-color comic book world full of
larger than life characters. Technology is more advanced that the
real world, and magic is real. Aliens and creatures of legend roam
The Story So Far:
When the superhero known as Lumina was called at United Nations to be a
founding member of the Global Guardians, the celebration in the streets
of Brazil matched the ones from the World Cup titles in 58 and 62. As a
result of Lumina’s actions as a Global Guardian, dozens of crime
fighters start to appear not only in Brazil, but also all over South
America (Argentina and Paraguay most noticeable).
This however came to a stop after Lumina retired from the Guardians
(and from active duty) in 1971, as she ran (and won) for Guanabara State
governor. The amount of crime fighters all over South America started to
shrink except in Argentina, where a group of meta-humans called Los
Pamperos remained active. That led to a series of diplomatic discussions
between Brazil and Argentina, to the point of an armed conflict almost
Until 1984. Until the Xorn Invasion.
Xorn’s ships were seen all over South American skies in that infamous
April 1st. Some thought it was simply an "April’s Fool" joke,
like Orson Wells’ "War of the Worlds". Some thought of collective
hallucination. Some claimed it was a sign of God.
They were mistaken.
The ships landed in the main South American cities (São Paulo, Rio de
Janeiro, Buenos Aires, Santiago, Montevideo, Bogotá) landing their
troops, hoping to establish a base where they could land attacks to
other important places. But they found resistance by the superhuman
heroes and villains. Notably, Los Pamperos who are able to drive the
Xorn warriors from Argentina and Uruguay, a trained human called Mestre
Capoeira battled the Xorn in Northeast of Brazil and even Cuban Olympian
Super Soldiers helped in the coast of Venezuela.
The enemy was defeated. But sooner than everyone could imagine, evil
rose again over Latin America.
While the Xorn were driven off, the Paraguayan supervillian
Conquistador achieved an army of mercenaries and using Xorn technology
was able to establish a personal reign over the Gran Chaco (with lands
on Argentina, Paraguay and Bolivia).
Similar metarchies and dictatorial governments appeared in the Latin
America in the following years. The governments of Argentina and Brazil
knew they needed to take a joint action. And with the governments of
every South American country but Gran Chaco, they founded the South
Simply put, the Warriors are loved all over Latin America. They are
admired and respected by every non-criminal person. Local authorities
tend to be very supporting when the Warriors need some info.
South Warriors is stereotypical four-color campaign, and for the most
part the morality of the campaign will be four-color as well. However,
there will be some crossover between good and evil, and thing will not
always be black and white. Characters will find themselves making
difficult decisions, but should always try to be good guys.
but not overwhelming. Characters won't die unless they show themselves
to be too stupid to live or are going out in a blaze of glory. How you
role-play the character will do a great deal to determine the realism of
the game, so please put some soul into your characters.
The Warriors are the most powerful force on Latin America, and tasted
very few failures in history. Some villains may be recurring, but they
won’t be knocking at the door all the time.
game is going to be fairly serious. This does not mean that there is no
room for humor. Witty repartee, creative use of powers, and the way you
play should provide plenty of humor in the midst of even the direst
game will be entirely serial. Player actions in one scenario will have
effects on later scenarios, and continuity will be enforced. Adventures
will move linearly through time, bad guys will remember who you are and
what you did to them, and there will be public record of activities.
