Cowboys From Hell
Depending on my mood and the game, you may be given the chance to draw cards, a la the Classic way of chargen. Don’t expect this too often, as it skews most Savage PCs into superhuman territory.
Your Worst Nightmare Is Your Free Bounty!
Completing this to my satisfaction at character creation is worth either 1 point to your Hindrance ‘pool’ or 1 XP after chargen. Pictures of squids or dreams of waking up in your underwear probably won’t count.
It’s a Secret to Everyone!
Not everyone has to be an open book. I am all for character backgrounds (and am all for giving bounty for good ones, nudge nudge), but I’m also up for a little improv now and then. Feel free to leave blank spots in your background that we can fill in later. So if your character served in the War, you can leave a blank spot about the specifics of your service, what battles you fought in, and what weirdness you may have encountered. And there’s always something intriguing about a preacher who has skill with guns and tactics but refuses to talk about where he got his training. If something pops up and you decide your preacher was one of the first Agency cleaners, let me know. If I think of something cool, like your character fought with Custer and went AWOL at the Battle of Little Bighorn, I’ll bat it your way and you can run with it.
