NPC Rolodex #6: “Joker” the Scout
Dodge “Joker” Harding – Trucker Scout
Truckers have to be cautious when moving along the old Interstates. Some routes are structurally unsafe and some have a “bandit problem”. Also – on a commercial level – it’s good to know if there’s a market for goods and services. This is where people like “Joker” are useful. Joker will explore an area and report back to the convoy.
Joker is a friendly young man and has a certain charisma. People tend to like him and trust him (especially if they’ve dealt with his family)
Scouts tend to travel light and don’t carry much equipment: an inspection light, a few “trade items” and a handgun. They will either walk or use a modified motorbike
