The Electric Redneck

Status: Inactive
System: Rifts

Jethro was another "experiment" character I'd come up with. At the time, I had recently got hold of the Rifts Conversion Book, which mentioned that some characters could be Rifts natives and have what other systems call "super-powers". My curiosity piqued, I went about rolling such a critter up. I had a preference for the Vagabond OCC, considered by many to be the least effective of all the Rifts classes, so I used that.

My biggest problem with playing Jethro is that he works best in silly-type games; I really can't get into those for very long. I can't make him sound enough like Jeff Foxworthy to truly make him a "redneck". So far, Jethro's appeared in a number of one-shot games, but I really don't plan on resurrecting him for any long-term campaigns.
