Villian Hissing

Long-promised feedback:

1879: You May Hiss the Villain

The Brother of Shadow – I sort of like him remaining anonymous

Dr Tropy McTroperson (working title), I'm torn on this. It's a little goofy. On the other hand, if he actually has really well-crafted, devious plans but the party is convinced he's a joke and underestimates him ... that could be pretty fun.

Tsukomogami Summoner - love this.

Mercenary Commander –

Airship Pilot – required trope

Feckless Sociopath – I'm wary of queer-coded villains and i'm afraid this could veer in that direction.

Librarian of Secrets – Awesome.

Genocidal Mana Researcher – I love to hate this one.

Karla – don't know Smiley, which is probably a crime.

Outlaw – cool.

Radical Anti-Opioid Crusader – This villain is not completely wrong on the addiction front. in adventure where the party sees the dark side of addiction, could be quite effective.

Exposer of Secrets – Wikileaks plus anonymous? Excellent.

On the Feckless Sociopath, I had more in mind a very masculine, sort of Ayn Rand-ish type of character, some Prosperity Gospel jerk who quotes Adam Smith out of context and believes that he deserves his success at whatever it costs to other people, that's not his problem. I figured to make him a Missing Stair, if you know the term. I don't want to go into the meaning of it and how that would deploy without a content warning.
