"...TOP SECRET - GCI NEWSLETTER: Reminder to all villains and villainesses - annual picnic in two weeks. Guild dues will be collected by agents of the Sovereign. Don't forget to support his new album, in stores on the fifteenth!" *** Welcome to Hate You Can Trust, an RPG based on the comedy show The Venture Brothers. If you haven't heard of the Venture Brothers, then I pity you...and get to tell you what it's about. In short, the Venture Brothers concerns two absent-minded adolescent brothers (the titular Brothers Venture) and their life with their cynical father, a grown-up boy genius. The family is protected by their loyal bodyguard, Brock Samson, womanizer, Zep-head, and all-around badass. This game is not about them. This game is about the universe they inhabit, and the colourful characters that inhabit it. Villains with odd themes (butterflies!), neurotic heroes.... In this game, you will play as either a hero, or a villain. Villains will be supported by the Guild of Calamitous Intent (ever wonder how they keep up the endless supply of henchmen?), an organization based around professional villainry. Their motto: Hate You Can Trust. This game is fairly free-form, as in you will be welcome to have fun in unique ways. However, your overall goal will be to defeat your Arch-Nemesis....! *** Rules 1. - GM is law 2. - Please PM all Character Sheets to Me 3. - Obey the TOS 4. - Respect other Players 5. - No Godmodding 6. - Reply to Tags ASAP 7. - Have fun If I have to warn you about breaking these rules more than once, you're out.
