Toon Tuesday: Adrianne the Playwright, a Phlebus Vagabond (Rifts)

Apologies for not posting last week, first I was ill with an upper respiratory infection and then (just when I thought we were free and clear) my toddler caught it. And a toddler that can’t breathe or nurse is not a happy bedmate, let me tell you, which made editing impossible. Thankfully, the kiddo is starting to perk up, and so I was able to finish my editing to post this week.

Given this character’s background and family, I felt it appropriate to give her a bit extra starting cash and some extra resources. Obviously, this is open to DM approval, so if you just want the basic package, take away the wagon, cut the credits by half or so, and it should be good. The wagon is actually modeled after the “Gypsy Wagon” in Rifts World Book 18: Mystic Russia, but lacks the magical protection and much of the cultural furnishings – it is a simple wagon based on that design,

Game: Palladium Books’ Rifts RPG
Books Needed: Rifts Ultimate Edition, Rifts World Book 30: D-Bees of North America.
Recommended Setting: Any good-selfish aligned campaign that is not pro-CS would be suitable, and any environment as entertainers are welsome anywhere. Not recommended for M.D.C. campaigns, more suited to starting, S.D.C. groups who could use their skill set. Very well suited to travelling entertainment troupes, circuses, and such. Skill character not a kill character.
