Happy birthday to Canada, the country that spawned such great talent as Barry Blair and William Shatner! And then there's Carter-Ethan Rankin, whose creations we've been leaning heavily on for the past few weeks here at the NUELOW Games blog, as pretty much every character that's appeared so far in the NUELOW Heroes and Villains series was conceived by him. (And if time allows, there will be yet another character drawn from one of his creations later today... the oft-mentioned Hot Shot.)
But, as a change of pace, and to honor Canada's birthday, here's a character with ROLF! stats that's not created by Rankin, yet is still so Canadian that he probably bleeds maple syrup. Or maybe de-icing something-or-other.
DIXON OF THE MOUNTED (Male)
Brawn 21, Body 18 (includes +1 Hat Bonus), Brains 7
Traits: Dead-Eye, Saddle Bum, Sense of Honor
Combat Maneuvers: Basic Attack, Deflect, Disarm, Dodge, Knock Out, Murderous Mitts, Sure Shot
Important Stuff Worn/Wielded: Red Mounties Coat (Armor, absorbs 1 point of damage). Mountie Hat (provides +1 Body ATT while worn). Service Revolver (Small Ranged Weapon, deals 2 points of damage). Rifle (Medium Ranged Weapon, deals 4 points of damage that ignore armor).
Dixon starred in the first seven issues of Bell Features's Active Comics, where he always got his man (when he wasn't rescuing his lady-friend Ruth Barton).
(Dixon was created using battle maneuvers included in ROLF!: Bathtime on Bear Creek.)
