posticon [TaleSmith Productions] Into the Maelstrom


“They had it wrong. So wrong. Might and weapons won’t win the world on their own. Not unless you’re the only one with the might and the weapons. We were but a handful of countries against the world. When you come in and beat someone over the head with a stick, you’d better hope he doesn’t first have a bigger stick, and second doesn’t have more friends than you do with sticks as well.

The first key is to remove the one thing that gives men spirit to fight. Undermine their patriotism. One thing truly makes the world go round and round: money. Money is the ultimate power. Without it your sticks are small and ineffective. Without it you can’t reward your soldiers. Without it you can’t buy bullets, tanks, ships, airplanes. Without it you’re nothing.

Once you have the money, the rest falls in line. Look at the big industries of Germany when we started. They thrived on the war. But now I am out of prison, and I see that they still thrive. This Cold War keeps business alive, keeps the people with money in it. Those who practice this so called freedom don’t realize; they are still slaves to their new owners, the corporations.

But how will I draw them in? How to take them over? You find the businesses that no one can live without: arms, security, precious metals and gemstones, banking, medicine, industry and production. You get your hold on those, and you keep it. Then you just suck the rest of it in upon yourself like a maelstrom in the water. A predator that takes in everything, living or not, and consumes it.

Bring everything in and do one of two things: destroy that which is weak, or make that which isn’t a part of you, so you grow stronger.

I grow old after so many failed experiments upon myself. But my daughters, each set in their own region in the world, will rise up and rule one day in my stead. My legacy will see what so many have failed to do done. This is because intelligence is the most powerful show of might one can truly have.

In the end, the 7 regions of the world will be under one flag. They will be brought into the Maelstrom.”

Doctor Dieter Eberstarke
Personal Journal
March 10th, 1971



Introducing “Into the Maelstrom” by new aspiring independent RPG Press, TaleSmith Productions(tm).

Into the Maelstrom” will provide details on a true nemesis-level super villain organization that GM’s can base an entire campaign around.

With the coming of super heroes, and some of his own experiments upon himself and others, Dr. Eberstarke has enacted a plan to take over the world, his way. Seven daughters, each born in a separate region of the world, empowered in the womb, and raised knowing their destiny in life: to rule and bring all the world under one banner. To bring it all “Into the Maelstrom”.

Cool beans, glad to see someone else jumping into Supers.

Regarding your website, it looks really good though I would suggest, if possible, to move the facebook, twitter, and google+ emblems elsewhere because they cover up the menu bar on the left. I can read "About Us" and "Free Stuff", but there's a mysterious tab inbetween the two. Also the info bar across the bottommakes it a challenge to click on the "Products" tab.

Of course, may just be my browser, but if it's happening to other people, thought you should know!

Well, looking forward to seeing what you guys come up with. Oh, are you planning on publishing before the revision to Supers? Just curious.

Tahnk you, the template is pretty cutting edge using HTML 5 and that. Not seeing it myself on Firefox or Chrome. But I'll look into it.

However what I do have are two artwork previews today.... Spitfire & Shen Lung.

Saw Spitfire on the website. Shen Lung looks pretty tight as well. I love that SUPERS! is attracting some great art.

Re: [TaleSmith Productions] Into the Maelstrom


Hopefully will be posting Waheela here soon. Got two more in final inks and the last two of the 7 main villians I just approved the concept sketches so far.

We're letting Comicbookist post them all first on his site and Deviant Art account. So soon as he has them up I'll be putting them here.
