Me and my friend need some help with his character concept.
See, I've got this setting I wanna try out, and he wants to be a badass gunslinger like Roland of Gilead, and I'm like, "Yeah! That'll work! Use him." And then I come up with this really cool idea of him working for the mad gods of chaos, who pay him in qualitative money. It functions on qualities, not quantities, dig?
Caleb (the gunslinger) ain't a believer. Not many people are, dig? He's hired by the mad gods through an intermediary, who might be insane. But the money works, and that's the important part. The job is to kill a list of 23 people. Some of them appear to be for political reasons, but no clear agenda is apparent from the combination of them.
So, here's the thing. You aren't a believer, you just need the money, so why'd you make a deal with the mad gods? What is it that you need so bad and can't get otherwise?
