Character:SG Frederick "Moose" Baur

Jump to: navigation, search

A character for Twilight: 2000 First Edition, created by g026r.


Though he's not going to be the artillery, Moose is meant to be the muscle in a more mobile, less-heavy weapons oriented game. He can fire a gun with a good degree of accuracy for a starting character, and both his strength, stature, and body damage are well complimented by his high ranks in melee and body combat.

Character Description[edit]

Born the son of a West German farmer, Frederick Baur spent most of his childhood and early adolescence was spent helping with the chores, which included learning much about the crops, how to perform repairs on machinery, as well as the usual rural childhood pastimes of boating, swimming, and fishing.

Never one to excel academically, he did find some measure of success as a member of the school's wrestling team, where he was able to put his impressive strength and stature to good use.

In 1996, when the West German forces attempted to reunite the country, he cheered the effort along with his fellow countrymen. This elation was short-lived, as the situation quickly devolved to a larger conflict. Failing academically and angered by the ongoing conflict and Soviet aggressions, in 1998 he dropped out of school and, though underage, managed to lie his way into the Bundeswehr and was part of the forces that took part in the initial Polish offensive in the summer of 2000.

Following the Soviet counter-offensive, Baur became separated from the rest of his unit, and fell in with the remains of an American company. Nicknamed "Moose" by them, due to what they perceive as his resemblance to the Archie comic character, he has since taken up the position of machine gunner, using a Soviet gun "liberated" during one of the group's equipment raids.

Low on ammunition for his German-issued rifle and without proper clothing for the oncoming winter months, Baur's only desire now is to make his way home.


I have no idea on how the game itself plays, but I don't think I ever want to go through this character creation process again. Sure, the character generation worksheet makes life easier, but it's still more heavy lifting than I like to do just to get a usable character.
