The “Zord Alone Project” for Power Rangers RPG.

That’s where things went wrong, horribly wrong. The Triumvirate was quick to take advantage of the situation, mind controlling the pilot and and sending the Zord on a rampage in Bennett’s Cove.


Inspired by their first encounter with the Rangers, the US Army decides to build their own Zord, and create a Power Ranger to pilot it.

Only neither is actually connected to the Morphing Grid. That’s where things went wrong, horribly wrong. The Triumvirate was quick to take advantage of the situation, mind controlling the pilot and and sending the Zord on a rampage in Bennett’s Cove.

Hangar Queen. Requires a lot of maintenance.
Not Really a Zord. Not linked to the Morphin Grid. Not actually sentient.
Nuclear Core. Can only be shut down from small engineering compartment behind the pilot seat. If not cooled and maintained, it will explode in a nuclear blast. 5 mile primary blast, 10 Mile secondary blast. 50 additional miles fallout damage.

For those unfamiliar, this Threat has inspiration from two sources.

The first is Blitzwing, the triple changer Decepticon from Transformers. He fits with the military theme and I’ve always liked the character. He’s a bad guy and just a little schizophrenic.

The other inspiration and the name was derived from one of my favorite episodes of Neon Genesis Evangelion. This probably won’t be the last Evangelion reference I will do. I’ve always liked the angels from that series.

This Threat was inspired by the Jet Alone Project, which as a rival’s attempt to compete with Nerv by building their own EVA. Of course the whole thing backfired and Misato ended up inside the robot shutting it down before it went supernova.


Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate you! Happy gaming.
