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.
Given our society's obsession with stalking and ridiculing celebrities, it's tempting to seek a life of anonymity. But beware: not being famous has its own hidden costs.
Mass Effect: Andromeda turns its nose up at the original trilogy's rigid morality. It boasts a more nuanced and intellectually compelling shades-of-grey approach in which a heart icon pops up when it's time to tell an alien to take their clothes off.
Zack Parsons, Steve "Malak" Sumner, and friends tackle bizarre role playing game products that make them wonder, "What the fuck!?" From the early days of Gygax to contemporary role playing games, none will be spared.
