Game and Story Use

  • Quite the Resume! Carter is more than just a President and Peanut Farmer. He has experience in the fields of nukes, submarines, diplomacy, politics, sports, farming, business, law, religion, education, UFOs, ghosts, and who knows what else.
    • He'd be an appropriate NPC in many genres and settings from 1950 on.
    • His character sheet would likely be most impressive.
    • An example of how people often have much more varied skills and experiences than most RPGs (and TV or Movies) give them credit for. Give your NPCs more depth!
  • Would make a powerful (but not overshadowing) Patron for good-aligned PCs in the modern day.
    • …or not. Your Mileage may vary.
