Planet Motherfucker's Most Wanted: JIMMY DRIPS

Everybody needs to know a guy who knows a guy...and Jimmy Drips is the best guy-knowin'-guy around.  Just ask 'imhe'll tell ya!

Ya need dope?  Wheels?  Girlies?  Hoodoo?

With enough toilet paper and beer, Jimmy Drips can make it happen, baby.  And ol' Jimmy doesn't mind gettin' his hands even dirtier for a pal like yerself, 'cuz Jimmy loves ya!

(But keep him away from your own stash and ride and gal and mojo, because those dirty hands of his get pretty grabby...and NEVER let him cover the escape route.  That's a surefire way to find yourself, as they say in the vernacular, "planet motherfucked".)

Rawheads are survivors.

Some escaped midway through dinner with clans of chainsaw-cannibals.  Others peeled themselves up off the asphalt after the worst hot-rod wrecks imaginable.  A few even clawed their way free from Hell's sweltering Agony Engines.

But all left something behind in the trauma:  their skins.

Most rawheads try to make the best of their supernatural transitions—despite the incessant oozing—and return to some semblance of *snort* normal.  But those of the more unhinged variety scheme to reclaim their former lives by any means necessary, and all they need is a facelift...or, more accurately, someone's face to lift in the most felonious of fashions....

One more thing.  If you want to die, call a rawhead a goodbody to its face.  Slurs don't get much worse on Planet Motherfucker.

This Is Planet Motherfucker

Weird-Ohs and Weir-D'ohs

So it turns out teaching myself the Savage Worlds system by making custom Character Archetypes the old fashioned way—with pencil and paper!!!—was utter nonsense, as my creations were riddled with mistakes.

They were actually all under-powered, as I neglected to notice that little bit of rules-ery that grants each starting character a free Edge.  That means I had a minimum of 2 more points to spend on Attributes or Skills and whatnot.

If you downloaded my old Archetypes, check 'em out again for the new-n-improved versions.  Good thing I finally splurged on the Hero Lab software to check my work!

Planet Motherfucker's Most Wanted: C.W. WRECK-ALL

Only one thing strikes terror in the jaded hearts of the hotrodders and gearjammers of Planet Motherfucker: the cornpone chatter of C.W. Wreck-All, Demon-King Of The Blacktop.  Because once you hear that laid-back, folksy voice break through the tunes shattering your speakers, it's already too late...for Wreck-All and his infernal big-rig are in the rear-view mirror, seeking to add your soul and your ride to his Convoy Of The Accursed.

C.W. Wreck-All
Attributes, Skills, Hindrances, Edges:  as Collector Demon [p. 68 of Savage Worlds Horror Companion], plus Driving d12+1, Knowledge (The Open Road) d12, Repair d12, Ace

Wreck-All's Netherduck is a soul-black 18-wheeler that belches screaming ghosts from its stacks. It can travel across liquid surfaces—oceans, lava, blood—at full movement rate without sinking.
