Patty's Perpetrators are one of the newest sanctioned groups
to recognized by the H.M.P.A. in Muncie. They've yet to win any tournaments
but the group has twice been commended for demonstrating "Good Sportsmanship."
Patty majored in Elementary Education at BSU and currently teaches
a Kindergarten class at James Whitcomb Riley Elementary. She was
an early member of the Black Hands before splintering off to form
her own group, "Patty's Perpetrators" (more commonly
referred to simply as "Patty's Perps") She has a reputation
for bringing 'positive reinforcement' and other teaching tools
from her classroom to the gaming table. Patty had a 'thing' for
Dave Bozwell (who, for a brief time had a 'thing' for her). The
two dated for several months before Dave broke it off.
Crutch is an ex-con. A two-time loser who's been put on notice.
If he screws up one more time and finds himself on the wrong side
of the law - he goes down the river for good.
He's a permanent fixture at Hawg Waller's (though according to
the terms of his probation he's forbidden to even step foot inside
a bar. Then again, the police don't exactly do walk-thrus at Hawgs.)
Even with his record, it's not hard for those who take the time
to get to known him that he basically a good heart. He tends to
be a loyal friend and is definitely the kind of guy you'd want in
your corner during a fight. It is this blind loyalty, however, that
often gets him in trouble.
Recently Crutch discovered role-playing and something about CattlePunk
clicked with him. He's now a member of Patty's Perps and struggling
to win the approval of the other players.
Mona is a free spirit with plenty of time to game due to the fact
that her children have grown and she was left a sizeable inheritance
by a great uncle. With her husband gone too, Mona answers to no
one - something she openly confesses to being proud of. She speaks
her mind and makes no apologies for doing so. Even so, most people
seem to enjoy Mo's company. When she isn't gaming she does volunteer
work around the community, including James Whitcomb Riley Elementary,
where she met Patty.
Eddie Ramirez has been known as "Tank" since high school,
when he was named League Commissioner for the Fantasy Football League.
He is extremely proud of his unique character -- a Frost Giant Thief
named Kraven. He is currently "tutoring" Crutch on the
finer aspects of role-playing and "playing well with others."
Painfully shy as a kid, Tank was bumped from group to group until
he eventually responded to an ad posted on Weird Pete's bulleting
board. Patty has been working with him and has slowly coaxed him
out of his shell.
Chad is a graduate student at Ball State University majoring in
history with an eye toward teaching. To make ends meet he works
part time as a disc jockey at fraternity parties and other campus
events. He's known for being something of a hothead and quick to
anger. This has caused him a lot of problems at the gaming table
over the years - He spends a lot of time 'pondering the five points'
in Patty's time-out corner.
Chad's an ex-munchkin. He began playing HackMaster at the ripe
young age of 13. Like most of the other Perps, he found he was welcomed
at Patty's table. When the collectible card game, Spell-Jacked first
came out, Chad went out of control and blew his savings AND his
college tuition on booster packs thinking he was 'investing' his
money. He got burned during the 'Card Crash' of '96 and is still
dealing with the debt.
