Player Characters – Bart and Xavier
I’m going to try and rearrange some of the campaign information in the near future, and I’m starting with PCs. Moses has submitted a new character to accompany his existing PC. Here are the stats for Bart and Xavier, close friends who grew up together in Tau…
Bartholomew “Bart” Powell
Bartholomew Powell (Moses). Human Thinker 2 (1040 XP, +10% bonus), AC 5 (used tires & chain), MV 9″, HD 2d6+2 (hp 11), prybar, (med melee Atk +1, 1d8), heavy crossbow (hvy ranged Atk +1, 1d8), or large knife (lt melee Atk +1, 1d6 or lt ranged Atk +1, 1d4). Creep: None. Quirk: Biologist (+2 bonus to Lore checks related to living creatures, -2 penalty to all other Lore checks). Backpack and purse (see below for contents). Nicknamed ‘Packrat’ Powell, Bart is viewed as something of a hoarder by his comrades.
Bart carries a large women’s purse made of hemp. The purse has one strap and is the kind you see young kids with, ’cause it can hold everything but a sink. Between his backpack and purse, Bart carries 2 canteens, slim-jim (yes the car kind), pocket knife, sharping stone, flint and steel, small metal pot, chop sticks, rope, toe nail clippers, tweezers, clean rags (lots), 2 rolls of string, folding yard stick, bottle of rubbing alcohol, a book on the repair of spinning wheels and looms, sample containers (several), magnifying glass, a communicator (with power cell), first aid kit (4 uses remaining), and a geiger counter (with power cell).
Xavier is Bart’s close friend. They grew up tougher and though Xavier was not selected for special technical training, he dose like to help Bart with his experiments and knows more than a bit about tech. His hobby is old weapons and how to make ammo. He is a little late getting the chance to go outside because he is against the elders in their isolationist policies. While he dose not believe that mutants should be allowed to live in Tau, he dose think that Tau needs to set up outposts to facilitate dialog and trade with the outsiders. These outposts would also be key in spreading humanity and finding others who survived.
Xavier was a Bantam weight fighter but now is going outside to be muscle for exploration groups. His grasp of tactics and combat should help any group that he is with. However he is hoping to hook up with Bart and maybe help him with his experiments.
Some of Xavier’s hobbies include drawing and science. His nickname was Einstein, cause he was smarter than the average jock and he was always reading. He also made ammo rounds for Tau, he is hoping that he will be able to continue this on the outside and make TU for himself and maybe any outpost he lives in.
Xavier Hollis (Moses). Human Enforcer 1 (0 XP, +10% bonus), AC 7/DR 1 (flak jacket), MV 12″, HD 1d10+2 (hp 12), rifle, (med ranged Atk +1, 1d10), mace (med melee Atk +1, 1d8), or spear (med melee Atk +1, 1d6 or med ranged Atk +1, 1d6). Creep: None. Backpack (see below for contents). A skilled marksman, Xavier is nicknamed ‘Einstein’ because of his intelligence and skill at reloading spent ammo.
Xavier’s gear includes scratched binoculars, sketch book and pencils, a small tool set (pliers, screw drivers, wire cutters, small hammer, chisel, punch, adjustable wrench), 100′ nylon rope, strap-on boot spikes, good work gloves, can of WD40, spool of wire, foam mat, sleeping bag, small 1 man tent (minor wear & tear), flint & steel, mirror, firearm ammo (2), and a first aid kit (1 use remaining).
