Gaming in the Universe of… The Watchmen Pt. 3: The Comedian
The Watchmen as reviewed by the family
The Watchmen for the most part are not super heroes. The characters in this series of articles were built using standard Savage World rules and as such can be dropped into any campaign without much difficulty.
Using the Comedian in your campaign is very simple. The Comedian is a sociopath who is only considered a hero because he is employed by the government. He is a war weary vet who has no compunctions about firing on innocents to get the job done. The Comedian would be a the perfect mercenary NPC for your characters to meet, an amoral lout who would just as soon shoot them as work with them. It would all depend on if your players had something he wanted or needed as to whether he’d help them or not.
