I want to surprise my Savage Dragon players By making CLINT BLACK the head bad guy. I know Clint is a wildcard human, but how else would you stat him up?

I don't know what edge represents the patience of a thousand saints, but he should definitely have that.

Final Word: [WC], Seasoned, Smarts d8, Knowledge (Rational Deduction) d12, Persuasion d8, Level-Headed.

A person with this Edge has the ability to end any argument with a reasoned-out solution or outcome. Once he has put his idea forth all further argument or discussion all but ceases. It is the perfect foil for anyone who is curious or cautious as he can direct them by use of this ability. If anyone wants to contest Final Word they must Win on a contested Smarts test.

It can be used in combat and will impose a -2 to Parry and Attack unless their target is successful in a contest of Smarts. If Final Word is used in combat against a foe and they succeeed with a Raise they cause their foe to be Shaken.

Well, he wrote Modern Martial Arts, so he should definitely have a bunch of Edges from that.

With that logic, he also wrote Necessary Evil and the Super Powers Companion. Just saying...

True, true. And one could create him as a super-powered villain. But a martial artist (1) is a trope of super-villainy!, and (2) the MMA is just two pages of edges, as opposed to an entire universe and genre guide. BUT! You really could do it as anything Clint wrote.

improved level headed,snake oil salesman, reputation, fates favored x2, charismatic, noble(admin although you'll probably make it something else in game), jack of all trades, alertness, improved block, and improved dodge.
agility d8 smarts d10 strength d6 spirit d10 vigor d6
fighting d8, shooting d6, throwing d8, persuasion d10, intimidation d8, knowledge deductive reasoning d12, knowledge battle d8, notice d8.

convincing argument: when he makes a test of will attack with 2 raises the target is shaken instead for 1d4 rounds and can not spend a benny to get rid of shaken.

admins touch of death: he can make a touch attack on a success and each raise if the target was already shaken from his persuasion test of will he does one wound for each success and raise.

the final word: anybody trying to make an attack against clint black must make a smarts or spirit roll minus his charisma modifier (4) or they can't bring themselves to oppose him

pace 6, parry 8, toughness 6.

be free to add what you want but this is my idea of what clint would look like.

How about adding the following special ability:

Metagaming Rules Guru- Clint knows the Savage Worlds rules inside and out and none dare to challenge his knowledge. But absolute power corrupts absolutely and sometimes he's tempted to change the rules to suit him. When things look hopeless, Clint may make up an argument about how the rules supposedly don't allow the character to do what they is trying to do, or to even exist. To do this, Clint must make a Persuasion roll. On a success, Clint's argument stands and the character is affected however Clint said. However, Clint must be careful not to abuse this privilege. After using this ability, roll a d6. On a 6, Shane Hensley has taken note of Clint's abuse of power and has fired him from Pinnacle, instantly resulting in his defeat.

No, no, no! It's no FFF enough! Just go with a 1 on the Persuasion die (regardless of Wild Die). Very Happy

He will neither confirm or deny that he is the same writer "Clinton Vane de Brosse Black" AKA "Clint Black" who is an expert on pirates and the Caribbean. But how may Clint Black are in North or South Carolina that have also worked on the POTC book

So add a tri corn hat to the Clint NPC and lots of salty talk

Well he will be facing Dragon PCs so I'm giving him the FEAR ability to represent he can strike fear into even dragons. I was thinking of giving him all the MMA edges but that might be to powerful. Even though your Ideas are all Spectacular(the Reason skill was epic) I was hoping to hear from Clint himself.

Instead of 'Jack of all trades' I want to give him the Spinx's 'wisdom' ability. It grants a +2 to common knowledge and all Knowledge skills defualt to a d8.

Clint's usually not here on the weekends. Unless he's busy, he'll be back Monday.

Not sure what he'll have to say. The topic sounds awfully threatening. Mr. Green

This thread is both flattering and disturbing at the same time.

Congratulations. Cool

That reminds me: There's already a Clint Black out there, stats and all. In an official publication even!

The Black Judge from the Horror Toolkit Bestiary!

Very Happy

If the players decide to be pro-active and go directly after Clint, throw in Clint Black, the country musician as a distraction. They'll kick in the door, and there he'll be, tuning his guitar, looking up at the PCs in bewilderment. Our Clint led them to him intentionally to get them off his trail.
