The Heralds of Pulp City (ver. 1.1 July 2009)

Beyond time and space, a mysterious organization called Infinite Hourglass trains the most skilled assassins, the Heralds. Whenever the time streamline is breached, whenever the civilization is leaning too much towards the good or the evil, a cyborg killer is dispatched from the Infinite Fortress to snipe the target and quietly retreat to a place between the folds of reality.

I. Heralds

Pulp City Herald is a Pulp City fan who helps to support the game on the regional level. In return, he gains access to all sort of previews, helps to shape the game and the setting and last but not least is able to redeem his/her efforts for Pulp Monsters merchandise including some Herald-only miniatures.
By becoming a Herald you don the superhero mantle and thus represent all that Pulp City game stands for: fun and friendliness.
As the structure grows, we will appoint Master Heralds who will take care of the program on the national/state level.
To become a Herald, following requirements need to be fulfilled:
- A Herald must be 16 years old or older,
- A Herald must fill out the Herald enrollment form,
- A Herald must send pictures of two Level 5 (two Level 2 miniatures and one Level 1 miniature) assembled and painted teams of Heroes and Villains (one each) along with the form.
