Savage Rifts Northern Gun: Mercenaries

Post by Stoic »


This game takes place primarily in Northern Gun.


Rather than player members of The Tomorrow Legion, you are members of a Merc Group. Feel free to play an Anti-Hero, but any murder hoboing will be immediately shut down and the Player may potentially be expelled from the group. Each Player Character will be a M.A.R.S. character and start with an additional 200,000 credits. You may choose your Hero's Journey rolls, but not your M.A.R.S. rolls (Unless you are a P.C.O., of course).

Magic and Psionics:

Officially, magic and psionics are illegal in Northern Gun. In practice, they are generally ignored unless a practitioner/psychic brings their presence to authorities attention. So long as you use some degree of subtlety, you should be fine. Right?

What to expect:

I will be presenting you with a series of heists/strong armed robberies, subtle burglaries, and every type of task a merc group can expect. Not every challenge will be a great idea for your group to embark upon, so it is upon the player group to determine which types of missions they might want to try. I will be borrowing heavily from Wiseguys for the heist generations, and I would like to experiment with Fast Lane Hacking for those types of missions/tasks. There will be a role for any type of character, and I tend to reward players who think outside of the box so far as their capabilities vs the actual tasks go.
