[Monsters] Roland the Headless Thompson-Gunner

As a big fan of Warren Zevon, I had to use Roland in my Savage Worlds Forgotten Realms multi-verse mixed-up campaign.

Roland the Headless Thompson–Gunner (Wild Card)
Agility d8 Smarts d8 Spirit d12 Strength d10 Vigor d6
Pace 6 Parry 7 Toughness 12 Charisma -0-

Edges: Ghost Warrior, Improved Block (+2 to Parry), Fearless (Immune to Fear/Intimidation), Hidden in the Mist (Notice with Raise roll to Spot).

Skills: Fighting d6, Shooting d12, Stealth d8, Notice d8, Intimidation d12

Weapon: Tommy Gun 12/24/48 2d6+1 RoF 3.

After Roland killed Van Owen, he wandered Earth fighting in various wars. He was pulled to the Forgotten Realms during the “Banestorms” and took service with the Big Bad. He was stationed on the Isle of the Mists in the pocket dimension, where he gunned down all who tried to gain access to the castle. He was finally defeated by the PCs when they discovered his secret he wasn’t alive and it was his possessed Tommy Gun that contained his spirit. Once they destroyed the Tommy Gun, Roland disappeared.


  1. It kinda freaked the players out a bit. Then when the giant flying hand showed up in the game, it was over the top.
