Conversions

Fantasy

I happen to think that Kintarans would make nice additions to a fantasy campaign. Make Detchal a hunter/trapper, changing his weapon-skills for primitive weapons, and altering things like Planetology to Naturalist or Survival.

Modern

Somehow, I don't think this will work very well. You're on your own.

Near Future

Detchal is probably a gengineered construct, perhaps a security android. Alter the tech levels of his skills, and add Electronic Operations (Security Systems).


Detchal (literally, "fat toes") was born to Klarin-yal M'Choosaraf, the Wahn (Captain) of the Choosaraf (First-Star). He got kicked off of the clanship when he managed to toast both the main and backup sensor arrays in a spectacular fashion - which put an impressive crater in the ship's surface, and required many costly repairs.

Dumped off at Kintara Station, he used one of his best skills (Sex Appeal-15) to make himself useful to Wahn Shadowflash, shortly before the ship had to crash-land on a lost Thral colony, in the middle of a gurrilla war . . . So it goes. (That's where the TL9 skills are from.) At least they were rescued after a few years (along with the other two members of the crew: Fireback and Lorilono).

He and Shadowflash have a two-year-old son, PrettyPaws.

Note that his skill-levels are TL10 - this is because Kintarans are stuck with cheap, slightly out-dated technology much of the time (they're relatively new to space); the reason for their racial Primitive (-1 TL).

Typical Quotes:

"I didn't do anything that would make it blow up!"
