Wednesday night was our first session of play with the Alwyn Campaign model. I'll do my best tomorrow to post the overdue session report. It was a fun session!
Since at the beginning of the session, the players needed to spend a bit of time finishing their characters, I decided to do the +Brad Murray thing and create a character of my own - to use as an NPC or to play him myself if someone else eventually wants to GM.
Our setting is the post-apocalyptic Earth of Babylon 5's far future. Technology is at a 14th Century level. So blacksmiths are back in. And they're burly dudes. I have to admit it. Ever since I read Samuel R. Delaney's Neveryon series I've wanted to do a blacksmith.
So here he is. I won't give you his full name. Oh Hell, I will! His name is Henry Leroy Jenkins. He doesn't call out his name when he wades into battle, and he doesn't get his buddies killed. And he has a big-ass hammer!
Name: Henry Leroy Jenkins
High Concept: Ass-kicking Blacksmith
Trouble: Cult of Hephaestus
- Big Ass Hammer*
- I can make Fire!
- Good work doesn't come cheap
- Forceful +3
- Careful +2
- Clever +2
- Flashy +1
- Quick +1
- Sneaky 0
- Hit the Weak Spot: Because a blacksmith knows how to Hit the Weak Spot, Henry gets a +2 to Forceful attack on an armored foe once per scene.
* Which led to a discussion in play about what an ass hammer was
