Comment: The silent thief of Rozrehxeson.
I'm working on a concept for a Palladium one-shot or mini campaign where notable individuals are plucked from time and space and thrust together into a mad quest to save the Megaverse. I'm hoping for some help in the form of answers to the following question:

If you could play as an existing notable, awesome, or iconic NPC from any of the books or official Rifter material available for Beyond the Supernatural (1e or 2e), which NPC from which book/page would you choose, and why?

Does BTS even really have any official NPC's outside of Victor Lazlo in Rifts?

I can offer you a list of NPC's, pregens and PC's via the house of BTS. Click here to head over and see the many character sheets.

I can also recommend Eddie "Bet the House" Champman from the Rifter #53. He's a Lucky Psychic, and one of my favorite NPC's.
