Toon Tuesday: Dugan the Reptilian Raider Captain (Breachworld)

In celebration of Breachworld reaching completion on its Kickstarter and my excitement about the G+ Breachworld Community being established and gaining members everyday, I felt like making another character for that system! A simple one (a simple race, really,) but an interesting look at a “bad guy”.

Game: Breachworld
Recommended Setting: Nomadic or mercenary campaign. Also makes a decent NPC/small time villain (with his raiding party, of course.)

Name: Dugan Drutnorth
Race: Reptilian Raider

Might: 3D
Agility: 4D
Wit: 2D+1
Charm: 2D+2

Move: 14

Skills: 2D Brawl, 2D Rifle, 1D Command, 1D Ride
Aether Feats: None.

Perks: Natural Weapon (racial)

Complications: Primitive (racial), Infamous (racial)

Gear: Weapon: Club (1D+1), Weapon: Medium Rifle (5D, 5 shots, 350ft range), Armour: Reinforced Leather (+3), Bumps x3, Shelter, Scope, Survival Kit, Water Purifier.

Background: Born into a community of other Raiders, he grew up with a love of brawling, shooting, and just generally taking what he wanted and being quite noisy about it. Being a bit more clever than the average Raider, Dugan was also a bit quicker and more accurate with his marksman training, which helped him rise to a commanding position in his ragtag raiding group. He is not typically friendly, but knows enough to keep his subordinates and their mounts satisfied with violence and loot (targeting the smaller weapons couriers and breweries.) While he is not the strongest of his group, he spent extra time learning how to brawl properly, just to get the upper claw on any “both arms swinging”, strongarm type upstarts. His Trapcat is affectionately called Daffy, which is secretly short for Daffodil (he likes the scent of flowers, not that he would ever admit it, ever.) Being the Captain of his band, he is afforded a decent rifle, and he’s gotten quite good with it, too. His superiors are typically with the main raiding party, whereas Dugan is often taking his outfit on smaller runs in the downtime. He imagines himself one day being the Raider King, but bides his time for now.

Happy gaming,

Breachworld Kickstarter: Less Than 70 Hours to Go! Plus Q&A!

image

The Breachworld logo.

Set to reach completion on April 6, Jason Richards Publishing’s Breachworld RPG has soared to nearly 10000 in funding so far. The proud and ecstatic backers have unlocked many digital stretch goals, which are available for most pledge levels. These digital goods are supplemental folios which entail more than just stats and a brief description to help players, DMs, and the role playing experience altogether (see the Q&A section below for more information.) The creator, Jason, has also made these folios a “pay what you want” feature, making them quite affordable for any backer (and free for any Superior Supporter pledge levels!) Unlocked so far are:

▪ Complete Player Race Folio
▪ Complete Creature Folio
▪ Hollow Mage Playable Race Folio
▪ Minotaur Playable Race Folio
▪ Dinosaur Creature Folio
▪ Destination: Smokey Folio
▪ NPC Folio

More information about Hardhats and other creatures/races is only available in the folios!

At 10000, we will have unlocked a full, point by point plot adventure supplement, making it even easier to jump in to this brand new RPG. Being contemplated for the 10500 goal are a Mythical Creatures Folio, another Destination Folio, and possibly releasing the Martial Artist for early playtesting. Jason also hints at a nice upgrade for the physical books; a wrap around cover with Kickstarter exclusive art! This is just theorized, of course, though he is pouring all of the funds from this project into the product itself, whether it be the artwork or the professional editing of the folios, so an upgraded book doesn’t seem too farfetched.

Toon Tuesday: Luke the River Folk Thief (Breachworld)

My first toon for Toon Tuesday hails from the up and coming RPG that got me back into blogging and, with any luck, regular gaming. It’s rekindled my burning fire to DM and write characters for fun. I want to take a moment to note that my cultural information will be different from the original world building, but until the advanced race folios are released I can only speculate and conjure, like any DM. Enjoy!

Game: Breachworld
Recommended Setting: Any campaign type where stealth is necessary. Heist campaigns, espionage, infiltration, etc.
Recommended Player Type: Someone who wants to play a smooth-talking theif who lives for the thrill of the heist. Players who are willing to be the “bad guy”, without that necessarily meaning that they are evil or make evil decisions – this character makes for a fun grey area on the morality scale (she is by no means evil or malicious, nor is she a “Robin Hood” archetype.)

A River Folk.

Name: Grinnluk Riverwolf A.K.A. Luke
Race: River Folk

Might: 1D
Agility: 3D
Wit: 3D
Charm: 4D+1

Skills: 1D Athletics, 1D Throw, 1D Stealth, 3D Pick Locks (advanced locks, specialized), 2D Diplomacy.
Aether Feats: None.

Perks: Swimmer: Major (racial).

Complications: Environmental Weakness (racial), Infamous.

Gear: Weapon: Throwing Knives (x12, 1D), Armour: Padded (black, +1), Climbing Gear, Screen, Datacard, Binoculars, Toolbag (lock picking kit included).

Background: She was born of the Riverwolf Streamclan, a small community of River Folk living on and beneath a lagoon. She is the eldest child of the Scalequeen (a title given to the leading elder, typically female,) and is skilled in diplomacy as an ambassador to other Streamclans and human towns. She left as part of a party to purchase the parts they needed for a purification pump and tools, as their lagoon had suffered a landslide and they needed to cleanse and unearth their homes. After her party made it to the town, they found that the parts and tools were too expensive for even the whole Streamclan to buy, so they made plans to go to the next town, a 3 day journey away. Deciding it was too far from their home, with many of her Streamclan trapped in their homes, Luke utilized her stealth to break into the shop and steal away the items, leaving behind the pearls they brought to trade with hidden for the owner to find later. Of course, her party was questioned, but through her cunning and diplomacy, they were quickly released. They returned in time to save their people, and Luke began to practice her lock picking and stealth, feeling the thrill of the theft in her scales. After a number of high profile thefts, she became infamous (though not easily distinguished from others of her race,) but manages to sneak by each time with some quick thinking and well placed words. Also using her skills, she has aquired several tools and items that help her with her thefts.

Happy gaming,
