XCOM 2 has a great feature called the “Character Pool” that allows you to import custom characters into your game. Throughout the game your Character Pool characters will just pop up during missions or rewards or even as villains. Honestly, I don’t really know how it works because I haven’t played the “game” part of the game. Instead, I made my beautiful co-podcast friends for you. You are welcome. PC Gamer did a great guide on how to import and export your characters.
If you want to import myself, Jennifer, Michael, Nika, Bachmann or Nick then you can download this dropbox file. Please do not let them die. They are very special. All of them are rookies except for Nick because my very specific RP for him is that he is a technowizard. Everyone else can be anything you want! I guess you could technically edit all of them too. But don’t make us ugly or bad.
As a bonus, Game Informer made these awesome video game characters for your pool.
Update! ibplunderin created his own version our Drunks and Dragons heroes along with the hosts. Check it out if you would like! Always use safe internet downloading please. I gave these a scan, but you know, better to be safe than sorry.
