Character Templates Part 2: The Police Officer

Last week we ran the streets with the Street Kid. This week we’re protecting and serving them. Even though they have been marginalized by budget cuts and privatization there are still honest, hard working cops. Of course they are out numbered by callous corporate security guards and and corrupt officers that use what little power they have to line their pockets.

Each Template assumes the Character is a New Lucid and spends only the Character Creation Points for their Trees. This leaves Players their Experience and Lucid Points to customize and add unique qualities to the Character.

The Police Officer’s training gives them a smattering of combat skills and social skills, mainly around brow beating the public. At the scene of a crime they excel with specialties for legging down people running from a crime scene and tracking them in case they lose sight. Police Officers also have good instincts, at least those who live and generally have several connections or at least know who’s willing to talk.

For the Next Character Template we leave the city to get down and dirty with the Scavenger.
