Wherein your humble scribe presents an NPC for a theoretical Mini Six-powered western.
Arguably the nicest bounty hunter on either side of the Mississippi, Daniel McCallum earned his nickname because of his perpetually dust-covered clothes, not because of his demeanor. Dan has more than once let a bounty go free when there’s a good hard-luck story involved. Truth be told, Dan is a might bit gullible and word is starting to get out to that effect. Fortunately, McCallum doesn’t actually need the money he stands to collect from any given bounty – that money he stole from the Union Army payroll back in the Civil War keeps him quite comfortable. Of course, there’s always a chance that someone might put two and two together…

Always liked those characters who could talk their way out of (and into) situations instead of just looking bad-ass and shooting all the time.
They’re among my favorites as well. And when I’m a player it is actually required by one of my friends that my character take a decent fast talk skill since I’ve been able to fast talk him (in game) into just about anything. 🙂
But being bad-ass and shooting dudes in the face is cool, too.
