Bron was born in a hidden dwarven community in Pike’s Peak in the Rocky Mountains. While hidden, it still kept in touch with the outside world, and the dwarves amassed a great library and excelled in advanced science, always eager to find and backward engineer any piece of technology they came across, though they were not much of a community for magic. They maintained connections to the Black Market for this sort of technology. They also mined their mountain, tapping rich veins of ore, leaving them wealthy and knowledgeable.

When Bron came of age, his people wished to make contact with the dwarven community they had heard about at Castle Refuge. They outfitted a Mountaineer Mark 2 for him and sent him to the Tomorrow Legion.

    • Range Unlimited (Nuclear)

Encumbrance: 82/80 (62 without pack)

Money: 2,400 Credits

  • Black Market

  • D-Bee (Minor): Dwarves tend to most freely associate with their own kind. Their human-like appearance mitigates the most xenophobic initial Reactions, which typically start at Uncooperative, or Unfriendly for human supremacists. Those with an Unfriendly or lower Reaction will refuse to sell wares or provide services such as healing, repairs, etc. Failed social checks with Hostile parties often result in violence.
  • Low Light Vision: Ignore penalties for Dim and Dark Illumination
  • Near-Human Physiology: Those unfamiliar with dwarven physiology suffer only a −1 penalty to Healing skill rolls and cybernetics checks.
  • Physical Strength and Endurance: Dwarves start with a d6 Strength and d6 Vigor, increase Trait maximums accordingly
  • Racial Animosity: Ancient enemies, dwarves and elves are still coming to terms with their new circumstances on Rifts Earth (where they should be natural allies, as they were in eons past). Old habits die hard, though, especially for such long-lived races. Dwarves suffer −2 on Persuasion checks when dealing with elves.
  • Reduced Pace: Dwarves have short legs compared to most races. Decrease their Pace by 1 and their running die by one die type.
  • Squat: Dwarven proportions make most Rifts Earth armor and clothing problematic—these items must be custom-tailored at double normal cost. Glitter Boy armor (including the Iconic Framework) and most human power armor is not an option.
  • Technically Inclined: Dwarves have an innate knack for intuiting engineering, science, and technical concepts and are often attracted to related pursuits and occupations. Begin with d4 Repair and d4 Science.

Fortune & Glory
  • Strong and Powerful: Add one die to Strength and begin with the Brawny Edge.
  • Wealthy and Connected: Begins with the Rich and Connections Edges.

Hero’s Journey
  • Cybernetics: Your hero wants to give that Juicer a run for his money, so he got a level of CyberWired Reflexes installed.
  • Training: Though lots of folks can jump behind a wheel or grab a stick, your hero understands the nuances of guiding a machine effectively through the worst conditions. She gains the Ace Edge, or Combat Ace, if she already has Ace, as well as a one die type increase in her choice of Boating, Driving, or Piloting.
  • Education: Either her parents did everything they could to educate her, she attended one of the few schools left in the world, or she might even have found and lived in an ancient library. However managed, she has three additional skill points to spend at character creation, but they may only be spent on Smarts-based skills. (Science +2 die steps, Electronics +1 die step)
  • Body Armor: You may trade the starting armor from your Iconic Framework for any other body armor (not power armor or robot vehicle). If this is not your first roll, apply all other results from rolling on this table to your newly chosen body armor. (Crusader Heavy EBA)
  • Close Combat Weapons: You may add any non-TW Close Combat Weapon listed in this book to your character’s gear list. If this is not your first roll, apply any other results from rolling on this table to your newly chosen weapon as you wish. (Impact Maul)
  • Experience and Wisdom: A split second often means the difference between alive and a smear on the landscape. Your character has the Quick Edge. If he already has that Edge, he gains the Level Headed Edge instead.

MARS Package
  • Begin with Electronics d6, Repair d8, and the McGyver Edge.
  • Begin with Boating d4, Driving d4, Piloting d4, and the Ace Edge.
  • Gearhead: Gain a free reroll on all Electronics and Repair checks.
