When the fate of the Multiverse is at stake, what game will the scheming Master of Metal play?

Tezzeret of Esper, the cruel artificer now free from his former master Nicol Bolas, the God-Pharaoh of Amonkhet, has traveled across the Multiverse seeking the answer to a question only he knows.

Once he finds it, he will manipulate anyone necessary and do whatever it takes to claim his prize… but to what end?

Writer Mairghread Scott (Transformers: Windblade), and artist Jorge Coehlo (Rocket Racoon) debut the Master of Metal in a 48-page one-shot igniting the spark of events that will ripple throughout the Multiverse in 2022!

Para Bellum Reveals the Centaur Avatara for Conquest

Fish Kill side ad

A massive humanoid torso crowns the baroque, armored equine monstrosity of the Centaur Avatara, bristling with arms each carrying a deadly blade. Scoffing at the notion of partnership with another being, but keenly aware of the advantages of cavalry upon the field, Spires created the Centaur iterations of the Avatara to mimic the original knights, the companions and equites of the Old Dominion.

To date, these have been reserved for only the eldest and most powerful elders of the Lineages. Their recent presence on the western battlefield can only bode ill for the Hundred Kingdoms as these hoary monsters shed millennia of ennui and rekindle their bloodlust and interest in battle.
