GURPS: Red Sky
According to law enforcement, there is no “Machete Man.” He is just a local legend dreamed up to scare the tourists, no matter that rumor insists he is always there, lurking in the shadows and waiting to spring out of the darkness to abduct, rape, and murder. The few reports about his appearance inevitably conflict: he might be average height and mass or eight feet tall (or nine!) with muscles on top of his muscles and eyes that burn like smoldering coals. All that can be agreed upon is that when he appears, people die. Official reports always have believable explanations for these deaths – hunting accidents, or tragically bad luck, or a horrible prank gone awry – and his targets always seem to be young and brave to the point of being foolhardy. As there is never any proof that he exists, local law enforcement has never made any real effort to uncover the truth.
