Steve's Stupidest #2
Ansel the Worldly Sasquatch
From Rifts Worldbook 20 Canada
Steve: Live the dream with Ansel, the Worldly Sasquatch. The dream of being a sasquatch I mean.
Steve: This benign giant roams the Pacific Northwest searching for his lost mate Patty who was taken by slavers many moons ago. Since she was captured, he has embraced modern society and now he drives a truck and wields a laser shotgun.
Zack: There's a laser shotgun in Rifts?
Steve: I mean, I didn't actually look it up, but I think I can say with certainty that yes, there is a laser shotgun.
Steve: Oh and also he is psychic.
Zack: Wait, psychic? That sounds suspiciously useful.
Steve: You would think, but check out one of his main powers:
Zack: Seems like a lot of sasquatches would get jobs at racetracks. You know, in case every watch and phone and every other time keeping device out of the hundreds at the racetrack broke.
Steve: I don't think he would even be very good at that because he is always off by 1D4 seconds. So like, it's a psychic power that's way worse than a five dollar stop watch.
Zack: Oh, man, this one is going to be hard to beat.
'We’re going to be in trouble!' Little Sister wailed, clutching her favorite book to her chest and sobbing. 'This isn’t fun like a story anymore!' But Big Sister was not listening, she was thinking. She grabbed Little Sister’s book from her and ran into town, yelling 'Help! A book made me and my sister hurt someone!'
I've been wanting to meet you all for the past few weeks, but I guess I cut an intimidating figure. I'm the new guy, with the cool job you've all surely been gossiping about. Yep, I'm the Lead Loremaster, and I'm here to enrich everything we do with much-needed lore.
