Your recurring antagonist is dead. What now?

Your PCs have finally gotten the drop on their recurring antagonist and taken him down permanently. What now?

Other than “we party”?

Spoilers for Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. mid season three:

I would wait a week or two before bringing him back as a zombie, but hey. Some kind of revival or resurrection is fine in certain genres depending on Weird Level.

The enemy’s legacy can continue indirectly - he could have passed knowledge along to other agents, left contingency plans.

Does she have a clan ready to avenge her?

Would the PCs be charged with his murder - quite possibly rightly, knowing what PCs can be like? :D


  1. Not so much a zombie I'd say, but an alien shape-changer ;)

    1. Zombie containing an alien shapechanger?

      (Who should have kept its first cover up a few minutes longer. Silly silly alien shapechanger.)

    2. Yes, the initial revelation was anticlimactic to say the least ;)
