Toon Tuesday: Helen the Human Vagabond (Rifts)

I think that Vagabonds are drastically underestimated as an O.C.C.; with the variety of skills they can learn and their natural Eyeball a Fella technique, they open up a lot of role playing opportunities. Sadly, many players go for the M.D.C. creatures and the super skilled classes, but I can’t count how many times a Vagabond would have proven useful to my groups. I also decided to give this character a pretty hefty vulnerability: congenital heart problems. This runs in my own family, so I do actually know the symptoms and such, it can be very debilitating, even fatal, and should not be taken lightly (I certainly don’t.)

Game: Palladium Books’ Rifts RPG
Books Needed: Rifts Ultimate Edition.
Recommended Setting: Any average adventuring party, also well suited to a gang lifestyle or unsavory quests involving theft.
