Character Description[edit]

James is a killer, plain and simple. Fortunately for humanity, he was made so by the Texan Army rather than by the streets or his own boredom, so all killing so far has been limited to hostile aliens. But after one battle too many James finally took a hit. Now fully recovered, he's out of the Army with an honorable discharge, and looking for something new to keep him and his trigger finger busy.


2300 is a game I've never played and probably never will, but I have a copy so I had to make the character sooner or later. Going through this was a huge '80s throwback, which is kind of a history lesson for me considering I didn't start roleplaying until 1992. But at least the character creation rules aren't as crunchy as the rules on explosives (which, if I remember correctly, involve numerous decimals and some simplified physics equations).
