Character Description[edit]

Billy John Miller grew up in rural Vermont, children of itinerant farm labourers. He was an everage child, remarkable in that he survived his 5 dead sisters and brothers. Miller worked hard as a farm labourer himself, and with a small present from his parents, has headed west to make his fortune.

Gentleman Jack has earned his nickname from the contrast between his rough demeanour and the fancy derby he proudly sports.

Jack's idea of success is to run and own a saloon. His sloppy habits and the fact he only has 50 cents to his name will be obstacles to this goal.


I like lifepath sysems, where you roll a lot of random elements and have to pull them together into a single story. Kenzerco have made a great job of taking all the good bits of Hackmaster and squeezing them into a western setting.
