Mr. Steelfist, CPA for Light City

Here's a character for Light City, a fun superhero hack of the excellent Swords & Wizardry Light. Having fun playing around with the system a bit.

Mr. Steelfist, Certified Public Accountant!

Roy Kranzle was a mild mannered accountant who just wanted a nice comfortable job. In a rare instance of action he tried to protect several of his fellow employees during a paranormal battle. He should have died in the attempt Instead he was “gifted” with a pair of Technomantic Power Gauntlets at the whim of the mad goddess known as Lady Discordian. After the battle he found he could not remove them, as the chaos magic fused the Gauntlets onto him. It took months for Roy to learn how to wield and use his new hands.

At first flustered by his new abilities and his massive new hands, Roy soon began to use his sharp mind to guide the power he now had. He became a reserve member of the Justice Brigade to both learn to fight and use his abilities to help. During tax season Roy is the accountant for several superhero groups but he also helps fight the good fight as Mr. Steelfist CPA!

Weird Map: Moo Mesa

A map of Moo Mesa from the 90's animated series The Wild West C.O.W. Boys of Moo Mesa. 
All pun-based names aside, this makes a fun map for a small western genre based continent or pocket dimension.
