Racial Characteristics
  • Agile: Quick-Flex start with a d8 Agility (and a Trait maximum of d12+2).
  • Ambidexterity: All Quick-Flex possess the Ambidextrous Edge.
  • Distinctive D-Bee: Unless they hide their non-human appearance, a Quick-Flex faces prejudice from the Coalition. They suffer −4 Charisma with such folks.
  • Elusive: Quick-Flex are difficult to pin down in close quarters, giving them a natural +1 to their Parry rating.
  • Fast: Quick-Flex have +2 to Pace and increase their Running die by one die type (usually a Pace of 8 and d8 Running die).
  • Restricted Path: Their natural hyperactivity and lack of focus makes the pursuit of any magical Arcane Backgrounds impossible for them. Quick-Flex cannot access PPE. The race cannot take any Arcane Background which uses PPE or any Iconic Framework which includes such an Arcane Background.
  • Short Attention Span: Quick-Flex have a difficult time sitting still and focusing on intellectual pursuits. They suffer a −1 to all Smarts rolls.
  • Supreme Confidence: All Quick- Flex are inherently Overconfident in addition to any Hindrances chosen by the player.

Hindrances
  • Curious (Major): It killed the cat, and it might kill your hero as well. Curious characters are easily dragged into any adventure. They have to check out everything and always want to know what’s behind a potential mystery.
  • Loyal (Minor): Your character may not be a hero, but he’d give his life for his friends. This character can never leave a man behind if there’s any chance at all he could help.
  • Wanted (Minor): Wanted for thievery in Lazlo.
  • Overconfident (Major): (Racial) There’s nothing out there your hero can’t defeat. At least that’s what he thinks. He believes he can do most anything and never wants to retreat from a challenge. He’s not suicidal, but he certainly takes on more than common sense dictates.

Edges
  • Filthy Rich (Hindrances) This character made some major scores before the current adventure. She’s got 20,000 credits saved up and gets three additional rolls (total of five) on the above listed tables.
  • Luck: (IF) The adventurer seems to be blessed by fate, karma, the gods, or whatever external forces he believes in (or believe in him!) He draws one extra Benny at the beginning of each game session, allowing him to succeed at important tasks more often than most, and survive incredible dangers.
  • Linguist: (IF) The character has an ear for languages and a rare talent for recognizing similarities between them. A character with this Edge starts with a number of languages equal to his Smarts die (Spanish, Dragonese/Elven, Gobbely, Euro, Faerie Speak, Chinese), and can make a Smarts roll at –2 to make herself understood in any language or dialect she has heard spoken for at least a week.
  • Ambidextous: (Racial) Your hero is as deft with his left hand as he is with his right. Characters normally suffer a –2 penalty when performing physical tasks with the off-hand (characters are assumed to be right-handed). With this Edge, your warrior ignores the –2 penalty for using his off-hand (see page 75).
  • Quick: (F&G) Quick characters have lightning-fast reflexes and a cool head. Whenever you are dealt a 5 or lower in combat, you may discard and draw again until you get a card higher than 5.
    Characters with both the Level Headed and Quick Edges draw their additional card and take the best as usual. If that card is a Five or less, the Quick Edge may be used to draw a replacement until it’s Six or higher.
  • Charismatic: (F&G) Your hero has learned how to work with others, even those who might be somewhat opposed to him or his efforts. This adds +2 to his Charisma.
  • I Know a Guy: (F&G) Some people seem to know someone everywhere they go. The contact may not be the most amazingly helpful person— they may even hate the hero for some past slight or money owed. The person known may be well-placed in an organization, or just as easily homeless and only know a few possibly helpful rumors. The point is, however, almost anywhere he goes, the hero seems to know someone, and that person usually at least knows something of value or can contact some helpful folks. Once per session, the player can invoke this Edge to effectively have the Connections Edge with any person or group. Use the rules for Connections to determine if the contact can be reached, and if he will help in any way. If the attempt to contact a particular person fails, the once-per-session use of this Edge is not used up; failures on the Persuasion check to get help still trigger that session’s use of the Edge.
  • Rich (F&G) Unless the hero is planning to remain in one location for a serious length of time, annual salary really isn’t part of the equation for his wealth. He’s managed to accumulate a bit of money, but more important, extra gear. He begins with 5,000 credits and gets two rolls on the Body Armor, Close Combat Weapons, Cybernetics, or Ranged Combat Weapons Tables. The hero may give up the two rolls to instead own one vehicle of his choice.
  • Connections: (Colorado Baronies, Black Market, Pecos Badlands, Tolkeen University Refugees) (F&G) Whether it’s to the Feds, the cops, the Mob, or some big corporation, your heroine knows someone on the inside someone who is willing to lend her a hand on occasion (usually once per game session). This Edge may be taken more than once, but each time must be applied to a different organization. The GM should also ensure the organization is limited to a single, unique organization. A hero may, for instance, have Connections (US Army), but he shouldn’t have a blanket Connections (Military). To use a character’s Connections requires that she first get in touch with one of her contacts. This requires a Streetwise roll. Failure means the particular contact wasn’t available, their cell phone wasn’t on, or they were otherwise tied up. Once in contact, the hero must make a Persuasion roll. The GM should feel free to modify both the Persuasion roll and any results based on the circumstances. A failure indicates the heroine’s contacts just couldn’t come through this time, or perhaps just weren’t persuaded that their help was really necessary. On a success, the contact might share information, but won’t do anything too risky to help. On a raise, the contact is willing to leak sensitive information, but stops short of outright betrayal. Two or more raises means the heroine has pushed the right buttons and can count on serious help. The Connection will risk serious consequences for the heroine, and if she needs financial assistance, may provide more than he’s comfortable with. If the heroine asks for muscle, the contact delivers either one expert (a safe-cracker, wheel-man, security expert, etc.) or five average fighter-types for the contact’s particular organization (a mob boss sends five thugs, the Army sends five infantrymen, etc.). Note (+2 on his rolls to contact Steven Duarte; Tolkeen University Refugees.)
  • Thief: (HJ) Thieves specialize in deceit, treachery, and acrobatics. They can be invaluable where traps must be detected, walls must be climbed, and locks must be picked. Thieves add +2 to Climbing, Lockpick, Stealth, as well as Notice or Repair rolls that relate to traps and similar devices.
    The bonus to Stealth does not apply when the character is in a wilderness environment—only in urban areas.
  • Danger Sense (HJ) Your hero can sense when something bad is about to happen. Anytime he’s about to be the victim of a surprise attack, ambush, or other nasty surprise, he gets a Notice roll at –2 just before the attack or event occurs. If successful, the character knows something is about to happen and may take appropriate action against it. This means the hero is on Hold for the first round of a combat. Should the hero fail his roll, he still follows the normal Surprise rules, if applicable (see page 65).
  • Jack-of-All-Trades: (HJ) Through advanced schooling, book-learning, computer-enhanced skill programs, or just amazing intuitive perception, your hero has a talent for picking up skills on the fly. There is little he can’t figure out given a little time and a dash of luck. Any time he makes an unskilled roll for a Smarts-based skill, he may do so at d4 instead of the usual d4–2.
  • Elan: (HJ) When this spirited hero puts his heart into something it tends to pay off in big ways. When you spend a Benny on a Trait roll (including Soak rolls), add +2 to the final total.
  • Scrounger (HJ) Some people are just very skilled at knowing how to find what they need in an urban setting. They know where to look, who to talk to, and how to get what their group needs. A Scrounger can make a Streetwise check, once per session, in any city or large town (−2 in smaller urban areas) to accomplish one of the following:
    • Gain 1d6+2 fully charged e-clips for the firearms she and her teammates use.
    • Acquire a complete reload for one Mega Damage weapon, such as a Boom Gun, Mini Rail Gun, or grenade launcher.
    • Procure food for 2d6 people for a week.
    • Fully restock one Trauma Kit, or find 1d4+1 first aid kits (as found in the NGS2 Survival Pack).
    • Obtain a non-secured cred-card with 2d10 × 2,000 credits on it.
    • Find some rare (not necessarily valuable) and needed item (entertainment chips for computers, a spare part for a suit of armor or vehicle, snacks and treats, etc.).
  • Two-Fisted (adv) A Two-Fisted hero isn’t ambidextrous—he’s simply learned to fight with two weapons or both fists at once. When attacking with a weapon in each hand, he rolls each attack separately but ignores the multi-action penalty (see page 66).
  • Quick Draw (adv) This Edge allows a hero to draw a weapon as a free action (and thus ignore the usual –2 multi-action penalty if he chooses to fire as well). If the character must make an Agility roll to draw a weapon (see page 74), he adds +2 to the roll.

Background

Narrative Hook: 1d20 (3) (Siege of Tolkeen)

Baron McVey was born to poor peasants in the country of Tolkeen, specifically the town of _____. His parents were unable to really care for a child so they gave Baron up to an orphanage stating that they found him on the road. The orphanage wasn't well funded, but they did their best to bring Baron up safely. At a relatively young age Baron decided he didn't want anything to do with the Orphanage anymore, so he ran away.

Baron grew up on the streets, after running away from the Orphanage. He fell into a gang, and learned how to pick pockets, and burgle homes and businesses. Time and time again, Baron proved both skilled and lucky and missed out on being caught. Eventually Baron came under the wing of Lord Faris a notorious thief, scoundrel, and gambler. He saw promise in the young Quick-Flex as a protege and heir. He taught the boy real skill in thievery, allowing the boy to become rich in short term. But soon this all came to a crashing end.

The war in Tolkeen rolled in full swing. This was both good and bad for business, the chaos allowed for more riskier robberies, but goods started to become scarce. Lord Faris being a generally good natured rogue, started doing work for Tolkeen, stealing and raiding from the Coalition. To which Baron joined in his banditry. It was here that the duo's good luck failed. Lord Faris was captured and eventually executed for his crimes by the Coalition, while Baron fled to the Colorodo Baronies. It was here that Baron joined in with the Black Market. A few months of work in the Baronies eventually sent him south into the Pecos Badlands. All in all Baron was living the life of a gentleman rogue, stealing from the rich and occasionally giving to the needy. Baron eventually heard of the Tomorrow Legion, and made his way their to see what it was all about.
