Not a problem.  I took a lot of time away as well.

If you enjoyed the first story that I wrote from Shrapnel #7, I hope that you enjoy the (very belated) follow up at the end of #14!

For bounty hunters and people who like RPG characters, issue 14 has some new folks for you to take down.
It's not about winning or losing, no it's all about how many chapters have you added to the rule books after your crazy antics.

Not a complete record sheet if that's what you are asking.
They are however built like those Notable Personality write ups in the Era Reports.
That way people can customize a character to their liking but keep to some core skill levels and SPAs.

Both Destiny and AToW are mentioned in that section, so they have equal opportunity to use them.

Glad to help, if some of the targets sound familiar be sure to check Shrapnel Issue 2 (I think) and XTRO Most Wanted
They looked like fun units to test the waters with on this article.

About halfway through the magazine, trying take my time taking everything in and enjoying it.

I especially love the Fox Patrol, they're real hard scrapping team. The characterizations are great.
Everything is great in the book so far!  Shadow Hawk is certainly interesting wriggle to sneak into canon.  Part me wish Star League had sprung for CASE, but that's me!  C.U.P.P. was hilarious!
