Here's my character sheet skeleton. I'll be adding his bio and some additional images, etc tomorrow. Just wanted to give people a look at what the sheet will look like when done. Also if anyone wants to have their character have a tie in to Big Al as a friend, business partner, rival, enemy, etc. Please let me know and I'll work it into his back story.
Big AlPlayed by UrbanzorroAge
MaleRole In Town
De Facto Mayor Physical Details
He has a number of burn scars on his right arm and the back of his right shoulder. Personality
Al is a man who was scared by the war, both physically and mentally. This leaks through into nearly every aspect of who he is, including his personality. Which can best be described as a man at war with himself. Most days he tends to keep a calm exterior whenever possible. He speaks clearly and with the best grammar he can muster. He is polite, eloquent, and tends to sound like he knows what he's talking about. He rarely raises his voice unless trying to speak to a crowd or across a distance. However his calm exterior also serves as disguise which hides the other portion of his personality. The portion of him created by the need to survive, a cold, calculating man who's drive to survive and not 'lose' to the wasteland will push him to nearly any lengths. A man who has embraced the cruelty of the wastes and rather than fight against it chooses to revel in it and use it to his advantage. Al is a man who's drive to be strong enough to survive is constantly fighting for dominance with his natural tendency of being a kinder man.Personal History
Big Al, born Allen Whitmore, was born almost 30 years before the war, he spent his childhood and the early years of his adulthood in a world governed by laws, order, and peace. He knew the joy of a safe life and a full belly, he knew what it was to live in a world where random acts of violence were the exception, not the norm. But all that changed on the day the world burned.
Before the bombs fell he'd been nobody. Just another man making his way though life the best he could, but on the day after he was alive, and that made him somebody. He'd been working as a train conductor when the war hit and was on one of the engines as the bombs fell. After the dust had settled, Al and and the other people on the train attempted to live a nomadic life using the train to travel the rail lines.
Eventually this lifestyle became unsustainable and the group transitioned into a more stationary existence. Slowly building a town around a former rail hub and growing as best they could. As the years passed Al watched many friends die, made many enemies, and in turn watched them die. All the while maintaining a large amount of influence over Dry Gulch, the settlement he helped found, until he eventually managed to gain full control of the town. He has acted as Dry Gulch's 'mayor' for the past 17 years. Sexual Orientation
Heterosexual. Al enjoys most forms of sex with women, there are very few things he won't take some form of pleasure out of. He occasionally has sadistic moods where he takes great joy out of others' pain but is also just as likely to be a kind lover to whoever shares his bed. Skills
In his younger days Al was a pretty good knife fighter, though his age has slowed his reflexes quite a bit. He is a decent shot with a pistol and a fairly good shot with a rifle. However his real skills aren't in combat, but rather in planning and persuasion. He is very good at 'reading' people and gaining an understanding of what it is that they desire. He is also excellent at laying long term plans and seeing them through to fruition and it is these skills that allow him maintain his control over Dry Gulch. Living Accommodations
For a home Al uses a converted train car
which has been fused side to side with a second train car
and serves as his house as well as the town's city hall. Notable Possessions
As far as personal possessions, Al owns an old revolver, as well as a simple hunting rifle. He has his own vehicle
, and owns his house as well as several items of clothing and other small luxury items. In addition to this, as 'mayor' Al has control over much of the town's resources such as it's power, water, and fuel. He rarely uses this control to do anything more than insure that these resources aren't over used to the point of running out but has been known to use his power over these things to bend others to his will when need be. Character's Offs
Al has a very open mind when it comes to sex and sexuality and has yet to find anything he doesn't like. Player's Offs
For this game my only real for sure OFF LIMITS aspect would be scat. Considering the setting I'm willing to leave open the possibility for just about anything else.
