Toon Tuesday: Sonic the Dog-Boy Navy “Sea Dog” (Rifts)

I know I’ve already done a Dog-Boy, but the Coalition Navy sourcebook offers a vastly different take on them, and I haven’t done many pro-CS characters, so I thought I’d add another to the list. I’ve actually written an entire team of CS Navy operatives before, including two Sea Dogs, which was a lot of fun to build, but this is an entirely new character to enjoy. The Rifts universe needs more Dog-Boys! Please note, there were some minor additions and swaps here or there, typically in skill percentages, due to errors in the text; I did my best guess at the intended scores. Enjoy.

Game: Palladium Books’ Rifts RPG
Books Needed: Rifts Ultimate Edition and Rifts Sourcebook 4: Coalition Navy.
Recommended Setting: Coalition or CS Navy campaign, works especially well around water and with human characters.

Toon Tuesday: Eli the Dog-Boy CS Officer (Rifts)

My very first ever character was a feral Dog-Boy (Malamute breed), and I have played many, many Dog-Boys since then; they are my absolute favorite R.C.C.! However, my table rarely hosts pro-CS games, so I figured I would change it up a bit! For more information about his identification number, see rule 10 of my Rifts specific House Rules.

Game: Palladium Books’ Rifts RPG
Books Needed: Rifts Ultimate Edition, Rifts World Book 11: Coalition War Campaign.
Recommended Setting: Coalition campaign. There is very little which could persuade Eli to leave the Coalition State military.
