Steve's Stupidest #1
Josh the Kwarla
From Rifts Worldbook 19 Australia
Zack: Of course they make koalas a playable race.
Steve: Not koala, Kwarla. Josh is a member of a demon-hunting race of bipedal bears that scorn human society.
Steve: He is a magical MDC creature that can glow green and soak up triple damage and wield claws as big as short swords.
Zack: Just like koalas.
Steve: He can also drive a motorcycle and use energy pistols.
Zack: You're giving me the hard facts. Give me some of the background on Josh.
Steve: Born to a mother that was killed by a demon, he crusades across the Outback in search of all demons he can find. He does not trust or like humans, but he is not above helping them, particularly if a demon is threatening them.
Zack: So pretty standard koala origina story and behavior.
Steve: He also wears sunglasses.
Zack: This changes everything. Are they MDC sunglasses? Do they have a hit location?
Steve: Just sunglasses.
Zack: They're not even from another dimension?
Steve: I mean, yeah, naturally. This is Rifts we're talking about.
And you thought women had one-dimensional script intros that treated them like sex objects. Ewoks have it even worse.
No one seems to like the new Doom box art. But it's still the same old Doom Guy under that space marine helmet. Right?
