The Ultimate Guide to The Ultimates
It's nearly impossible today to imagine just how easy it would have been for the world to self-destruct during the Cold War. That we are here today might be considered the largest lucky break ever granted to anyone - but I can tell you that, like so many things, this was not left to chance. A worldwide conspiracy - the Archer Pact - helped us survive by manipulating international politics. They were the shadows behind the scenes, playing entire countries in an intricate game of chess to keep the balance of terror from tipping either way.
Then the whole gig went to shit, and it was every man, woman and post-human for themself.
The Archer Pact is dead, and its chambers are clinging on to a desperate existence, but the last generation of Archer agents isn't quite ready to let go yet. Old enemies still abound along with new threats, and they have taken up the mantle of protecting the world from itself. They are the psionic powerhouses, undying mystical experts and highly-trained operatives that stand ready to deal with any - any - danger. They are, simply put, the absolute best at what they do.
They are The Ultimates.
