Toon Tuesday: Cotton the Human Cyber-Knight (Rifts)

Paladins (because let’s face it, Cyber-Knights are basically Paladins without the faith and blessings) catch a lot of flak from the RPG community, but I just honestly love them. “Your choices are so limited as a lawful good/paladin type character!” Not really, in fact I think it offers more opportunities to do some seriously memorable role playing than neutral or evil aligned characters. Plus I just love playing the goodly protector. I’m also starting something fun for future Toon Tuesdays: flavortext. Like you would find at the bottom of many a trading card, it will be a short (one to three sentences max) bit of dialog either by or about the character, just to add some more dimension. It can be found as a caption to the picture always included for the write up. Enjoy!

EDIT 10/2014: I have played this character in a campaign and found her to be a lot of fun! Her abilities and skills play well as both a leader and a supporting role.

Game: Palladium Books’ Rifts RPG
Books Needed: Rifts Ultimate Edition, though you could use Rifts Coalition Wars 4: Cyber-Knights, the stat information is out of date and much more clearly presented in the RUE.
Recommended Setting: Any good aligned starting adventuring party, accustomed to travel and all but the most extreme of environments.
