Gaggle of Goons (#1)

What is the Gaggle of Goons?

Gaggle of Goons is a series of posts where every week I will post a setting and six NPC foes you can run in your Fate Accelerated Edition game. With the Fate Accelerated not containing a large selection of NPCs to throw into you game, I decide it would be fun to start creating some and posting them online. Each batch of baddies will will be based on the setting posted and include Goons and $tylish Goons.

$tylish Goons

When normal baddies are too easy for your game, you can add some $tylish Goons. $tylish Goons are Goons that contain a special stunt which they can use during a scene. $tylish Goons will be denoted by having the aspect $tylish. The $tylish aspect lets the NPC use their stunt once per encounter. Examples of $tylish Goons can be found below.

Setting: Near Apocalyptic America

The Near Apocalyptic America setting is the setting which I am running my first Fate Accelerated Edition game. Information on this setting can be found here where I've previously posted a quick background for the players.
