Starting up a Deadlands: Reloaded campaign and figured I'd get those ropes a-swinging by making some characters.
First up is a rifleman/sharpshooter that I based on Matt Quigley, Tom Selleck's character from the classic Quigley Down Under (in my opinion, one of the best westerns not set in the west). Since this a Novice build, the character lacks the Marksman Edge and reflects someone much earlier in their career. That said, it's a solid and very capable build for someone who wants a shooter without having to be the archetypal high noon duelist.
