Wherein your humble scribe presents an NPC for use with Basic RolePlaying.
Edwina Lyselle Sirolangg is a freelance pilot and entrepreneur who makes her living clearing the space lanes of debris left over from the various planetary collisions that frequently occur throughout the densely packed AT4-R1 sector. And though most people think she is just “a little off” from having spent too much time alone blasting the big rocks into dust, Edie swears she has seen alien spacecraft out there in the ‘stroid Fields. She doesn’t quite know why, but she “feels” that the aliens come from a planet called Vekt’aar. At least, that’s what the voices in her head seem to be telling her, when she can hear them over the “heartbeat” of her ship.

Hey . . . I’m seeing a pattern here with the BRP characters (okay, so the link makes it obvious). You going to stat out an overweight Italian plumber who likes to jump over barrels next?
Yeah, the link kinda flashed the concept in neon, but that guy’s stuff is so damn great I couldn’t wait to share it any longer.
I actually plan to stay away from the plumber and the yellow pellet-eating guy. But I do have a few more up my sleeve 🙂
Are Edwina’s psychic abilities a simulation of your typical Asteroid player’s obsessive skills or just the result of hitting the ‘hyperspace’ button too much?
But seriously, I was attempting to model the former and figured that, in the setting, the latter could well serve as an explanation for the unlocking of those innate abilities.
Good eye, amigo!
Pao, you’ve got you role-playing goodness stuck in my 80’s arcade nostalgia. And the result is tasty!
How about stats for Dirk the Daring?
I’m delighted you’re enjoying this particular brand of madness, G-Man! And have no fear, Singe’s nemesis will surely make an appearance among the Arcade Heroes.
