There is an energy in Theah. A great power summoning forth the brightest souls... and the darkest. For every knife-twisting assassin, there is an ever-diligent bodyguard. For each great act of courage and hope, there is a dastardly deed performed in darkness. For every Hero there is a Villain. Heroes & Villains gives you 40 Heroes and 40 Villains to use in your 7th Sea campaigns. It discusses heroism, villainy, and possible redemption for lost souls who have fallen into darkness and includes new Advantages, Backgrounds, and other systems for use with 7th Sea: Second Edition.
