I still have my CD-ROM of the entire run of Dragon up to issue whatever that TSR issued back in the 90's I think? IIRC this was part of the "Giants in the Earth" series that ran in the double digit issues. They did tons of historical characters from tall tales and legends. It was super fun and had some of the best inhouse artists like Jeff Dee, Jim Halloway, and Roger Raupp doing art that still holds up today.

Christ I'm old.

Oh good, none of them are 3rd edition or later rules, at least. So they're legit.

It's also fun to put Forgotten Realms characters into TOON.

Duck and rabbit season overlap so it can actually be both.

My gang actually tried that one - never realized it was by Warren Spector!

Cool, but you know someone is a nerd if they come up with this.

Figuring how to express an established character's abilities at as low a level as possible is basically a sub-game of TTRPGs, honestly. E.g. "how many hp would John McClain need to survive the first Die Hard movie" type of stuff.

I tend to encourage it because it makes new players think about what their stats mean and how superhuman their character is (or isn't), not so much because of how it reframes the fictional characters in question.

That's based off of old editions, though.  Nothing wrong with that, but these days he'd surely be a Trickster cleric.
