Kaiju Super Fun Time Go! character

It's been an interesting and insightful experience guesting on Savage Worlds GM Hangout (On Air!). I'm really impressed with the way Jerrod Gunning stuck to his guns (pun intended) and managed to come up with a way to do combining mecha and keep it interesting. I really didn't think it was possible.

The most recent episode was character creation time for the short (2 episode) demo campaign of Jerrod's Gatchaman/Super Sentai-influenced Kaiju Super Fun Time Go! setting. Part of the premise to the setting is the unabashed releiance on such henshin tropes as the Five-Man Band. Honest to goodness, I was going to volunteer to play the Chick, because I play female characters all the time as a GM and I have no qualms about it. Surprisingly, the gang suggested I play the Leader instead.

So I came up with this guy...

  1. Love the character Sean! Looking forward to seeing him in action. I'd check with Jerrod before next week's session on having Blast as a skill though. I believe he has it written up that you use your piloting skill as your arcane skill which would free you up to spend those points elsewhere on the character.

    1. Hmm... Piloting or Fighting? Piloting or Fighting?
