Famous Funnies #14
Here, we see Harry has recruited a whole bunch of Half-Pints to serve as his Supporting Cast Members. Notice how they all make successful loyalty checks in the second tier of panels!
Yikes, hyenas! Hyenas are not yet statted for Hideouts & Hoodlums, but should probably be 2 Hit Dice. In a pinch, you could use Wolf stats for them.
Keeping Up with the Joneses is not likely to become a recurring feature here, but I dare you to look at this page and not get ideas for non-lethal traps in a hideout!
Here is a perfect example of the Slick Hoodlum, from the romantic adventures of Jane Arden.
For kill-happy players, Dan Dunn gives a demonstration of how to take out the entire crew of a counterfeiters' ship without a single fatality -- though he's aided by at least four canisters of tear gas (not available as starting equipment, but findable as a trophy), a lucky surprise roll, and unsuccessful morale saves from the Cowardly Hoodlums.
