Duelists: Academia de Hierro

As a distraction from the setbacks with Regency/Gothic, here's some duelists for the Pirates of the Spanish Main RPG:

Dario Rico Arena


Skilled Duelist
Attributes: Agility d10, Smarts d6, Spirit d8, Strength d8, Vigor d6
Skills: Fighting d8, Guts d6, Intimidation d6, Notice d6, Shooting d6, Taunt d6
Charisma: +0, Pace: 6, Parry: 7 (8 against a single opponent armed with one weapon), Toughness: 5
Fame: +5

Edges: Fencing Academy (Academia de Hierro), Florentine, Riposte, Two-Fisted, Wall of Steel
Booty: 60 pieces of eight
Gear: Rapier (d8+d4; +1 parry), main-gauche (d8+d4)

The reckless son of a Cuban plantation owner, Dario haunts the streets taverns and bordellos of Havana living off his allowance and the money he makes from dueling.  His mastery of the two-handed style of the Academy of Iron means he is equally comfortable fighting single opponents and gangs.  His ability to fight four men at once makes him dangerously arrogant.


Juan and Pedro Martinez

Master Duelists
Attributes: Agility d10, Smarts d6, Spirit d8, Strength d8, Vigor d8
Skills: Fighting d12, Guts d8, Intimidation d10, Notice d8, Shooting d6, Taunt d10
Charisma: +0, Pace: 6, Parry: 12 (13 against a single opponent armed with one weapon), Toughness: 6
Fame: +25
Hindrances: Code of Honor

Gear: Rapier (d8+d4+1, +1 Parry), main-gauche (d8+d4)

The twin masters of the Academy of Iron bristle when newcomers remark on the similarity of their style to those taught in Florence and Paris -- and they defend their honor with Spanish steel!  Even the most dangerous pirate crews should be careful to challenge the brothers Martinez; fighting back-to-back, the twins could easily stand against an entire crew!

    1. I think might make this a series, and move on to the schools in All For One once I get my physical copy.
