Jay Say’s: When game testing quite often you build what is supposed to be a throwaway characters of various stripes to test the rules. Over the testing process they seem to grow organically into beloved regulars with their own personalities and quirks. When my GM and fellow game tester exclaimed “we need Skater Dan” numerous times, then I had no choice but to keep using him.
So, who’s Skater Dan? Well he’s my Halfling Transrider..with a skaterboard…who is super safety conscious. You can see his picture under the Halfling in the DRev Player’s Guide. But today instead of profiling Dan himself, we’re going to look at his car, “The Dano’mobile” with all of its weapons and glory. As a roleplaying feature, the car is painted in bright construction orange and has numerous warning signs and decals on it, including a “Caution: Missiles Ready” sign.
