    Blue signifies that as the best die in the party for that stat/skill. I haven't done these for skills yet because...well, you'll see.

    A red skill is a skill nobody has, but I don't expect that to be a problem because none of them seem super-major except maybe Scientific Expertise.

    As I was going through character sheets, I made some notes of questions to ask, at least as far as chargen goes.

    1) For Yussiah, I think the points would be better spent going straight into Vitality than into Tough As Nails, since you'd get the same number of Life Points out of it, and more Vitality would help other stuff too. Of course, if you prefer a character who's tougher than the sum of his base vitality and willpower for fluff reasons, that's cool, just making sure you're aware of the mechanical disadvantages. But that's small compared to...

    2) Yussiah...you appear to be missing the vast majority of your skill points, and you've purchased a specialty for a d4 skill? I'm confused. >.< Anyway, I've taken my best guess for stuff in your column on the table.

    3) Andy, ya got no equipment! You can't travel the 'Verse unarmed and nekkid, 'specially with a child in toe! Get your act together, idiot who made this character!

    Han of Red Tiger Mechanics. If it's it broke I'll fix it. And if you need 'it' broke... well I don't do that any more (least not officially).

    That's some mighty fine tabling, there.

    Celticbear, AV's was taking a self deprecating jibe at himself. Although I wasn't sure if he was light on gear due to being Dead Broke or just a lack of hitting the general store.

    Also a repost in case it got missed:

    Never thought to ask, but if BDH is on the table wanted to request two complications that conveniently AV already listed. Dark Secret, which I would use in place of Branded and go nicely with my idea for Deadly Enemy. And Cold as Black which as AV mentioned is a more PC friendly version of of Sadistic and also meshes well with my Steady Calm (Major Asset) helps explain how a person could have broke/removed digits and body parts as a day to day job. Didn't enjoy it, was just "business" but a detachment/acclimation to such acts left him rather "maladjusted".

However you look at it, you don't make connections with the people around you. You don't pick up on social signals, tension, humour, or comments related to emotion or intimate issues. You don't react to situations bound to stir emotions in others - such as killing someone, or the death of a friend. Depending on the circumstances, you might take a -2 Skill step to social rolls when your lack of emotions causes problems.

If you take this Trait as a Major Complication, the secret is worth somebody's life - most likely yours. If you take the minor version, the secret is more of the humiliating type with short-term consequences. Either way, your trait imposes a -2 Skill step when trying to explain yourself if the secret gets out. Normally, the Trait's probably just an ongoing reason for you to get nervous. Roleplay it out, and the Game Master might slide Plot Points your way once in a while.

    Indeed. Andy was retired long before the war happened, but his son died in the fighting, leaving Andy's grandson with nobody else, and even though Andy don't hate the cause, he sure as hell hates 'em for takin' his son.

    Oh, don't worry. I wouldn't torment Regs over something as simple as a text colour...



    I'll take Saddle Brown for Sofia, thanks.
    Sofia was from the Alliance side (as won't be too surprising, since she grew up on the capitol worlds and her Dad's in the Alliance Parliament) but as she was a trainee companion during the war's run she didn't participate in it at all.

    She was supposed to use the time since the war ended to set herself up with her own 'offices' on Sihnon, but since she wanted to see the rest of the 'verse (now it was finally 'safe' for her to do so), she ultimately went behind her parents' backs and spent the property deposit on a ship instead. Then didn't find out she'd fallen for a scam listing until she'd already snuck away to the Beaumonde spaceport to try and collect...

    Andy will speak in bold dim gray.

    Also, a slightly interesting note for Han: "White Tiger" is a nickname(?) for the main star in the 'Verse, the one around which the Core Planets revolve. Not sure if giving your ex-con a nickname with strong connotative ties to the Core was intentional or not, so thought I'd mention it.

    Spoiler: Andy Background
    Show
    Andrew Paulson served in the "civilian law enforcement" arm of the Alliance for nearly three decades, patrolling around in a wide variety of vehicles, dropping troops here and there, chasing down smugglers and thieves and occasionally more dangerous criminals. His career ended a few weeks after a particularly successful bust of a major drug ring on Athens, when some at-large members of the now ex-gang broke into his home and attempted to murder him, his wife Tia, and his teenage son Edward. His son made it through the encounter unscathed, but Andrew's wife was killed, and Andy himself took several shots to the body before he managed to subdue the would-be murderers.

    He recovered most of his physical capability within a few months, but was eventually deemed unfit for action and was discharged from service. With bills to pay and a couple mouths still to feed, Andy did what he could to make ends meet, but it wasn't to last. He took out loans and called in old favors to scrape together enough to get by until Edward was old enough to enlist, and after that, the duty to keep him provided for was the Alliances, and Andrew only had to take care of himself.

    ...he didn't do a very good job of that. Andrew has spent the decades since his wife's murder drifting from planet to planet, job to job, just enough to keep himself fed and sheltered and out of debtor's prison, only occasionally fleeing heat when somebody came to collect earlier than anticipated. He kept in contact with Edward - the one thing in his life he hadn't screwed up by some miracle - and was always glad to hear from his daughter-in-law...and later, his grandson Nathan. It wasn't a great life, but it was about what Andy figured he deserved, and truth be told he didn't have the will to try harder for himself.

    But then the rebellion began. People all around the Rim rejecting the Alliance, seeking to govern themselves. Maybe they could do a better job, maybe not. Andrew had been out of the game long enough that he didn't really have a horse in that race, exactly - but he knew Ed would get involved, so he hoped and prayed for his son's safety every night before drifting off to sleep. Andy did his best to avoid the Independents - he may not have been supporting the Alliance, but he doubted they'd treat an ex-Alliance pilot too well either, so he kept his nose down and looked after himself when he could, least while he was flying out in the Rim. As the war grew longer and longer, the kernels of hate grew in him: the more he saw of the kind of folk that lived out in the Rim, that supported Independence, the less he liked about them. Lotta decent folks out there, sure, but the ones in charge were always headstrong and judgemental at the best of times, and brazen con-men and crime lords at the worst, using the frustration of all them decent folks to try and take over the local government so they could write away all the pesky laws that kept them from getting rich. And of course, it was always in his head that the longer the fighting went on, the more likely it was he'd be lowering his son's casket into the ground. Of course, his nightmare became reality: while he received the news much later, he eventually got word that his son had died just a few days before the Independents surrendered. Edward had almost made it through the gorramn war breathin', but those huen dahn rebels just had to keep fighting to the bitter end.

    Andrew made his way home to Athens, mindful of the trail of debts following in his wake that a funeral would be adding to. By the time he arrived, he was greeted with more bad news: Ed's wife had been so distraught, she'd taken her own life to be with her husband in death, or some similar religious nonsense. All it left him with was two funerals to plan out and pay for...and Nathan. Not even a proper teenager yet, and both parents dead in the span of a week. Truth be told, the lad would've been better off going into the care of the Alliance, but in the immediate wake of a war, they had more important things to deal with, and the kid deserved more than what he'd get from them. Course, he deserved more than Andy could give 'im either, but that didn't mean he wouldn't try his darnedest to raise this kid right, to provide for him the way Andy'd been failing to provide for himself for decades.

    He wouldn't mess this up. He couldn't mess this up.

    That's half right. All of the systems are named after the classical "for directions" Black Tortoise (North), White Tiger (West), Blue Dragon (East), and Red Bird (South) they also use the 'fifth' direction (Centre/Earth) Yellow Dragon. I always thought that was a nice homage to classical Chinese astronomy and cosmology. However the White Tiger of the north and the name for the core system is 白虎 (Bái Hǔ) which does mean white tiger it's just those two characters 'white' + 'tiger' (it also has a more vulgar meaning in slang). Han's nickname though is 甝 (Hán) different character AND different pronunciation -- but the same meaning -- a tiger that is white.

    I really like Andy's background, by the way. I need to post mine it's scattered in two different documents. Might be some friction with a former law enforcement agent and a 'former' enforcer for organised crime working together. Especially given Han was the kind of guy who used to collect debts from people likely in Andy's situation. Hopefully though my past will not come to light.

However the White Tiger of the north and the name for the core system is 白虎 (Bái Hǔ) which does mean white tiger it's just those two characters 'white' + 'tiger' (it also has a more vulgar meaning in slang). Han's nickname though is 甝 (Hán) different character AND different pronunciation -- but the same meaning -- a tiger that is white.
    Ah, alrighty. I'm not familiar enough with the language(s) to understand the nuance, but I recall reading something in the Serenity book about there being a lot of nuance to the language in pronunciation and the like. Just came across the bit about the stars' names being tied to the classic astronomy stuff, and wasn't sure if that was an intentional connection.

    I really like Andy's background, by the way. I need to post mine it's scattered in two different documents. Might be some friction with a former law enforcement agent and a 'former' enforcer for organised crime working together. Especially given Han was the kind of guy who used to collect debts from people likely in Andy's situation. Hopefully though my past will not come to light.
    Thanks! I was a bit worried that a lot of it's too generic, but since a lot of the background stuff shouldn't come up as much at this point (the debts aren't quite enough for a full-blown Dead Broke, the criminal organization from way back when was minor, and is long gone, so no Deadly Enemy), we're mostly stuck with a guy with just a lot of bad memories. But yeah, it's gonna be fun running a retired cop with this group.

    Fortunately, Loyal (Alliance) and Prejudice (Criminals) weren't strong enough aspects of his personality to make into full-blown complications, especially when they're competing with his new Credo (which is setting a good example for his grandson, and raising 'im right). If paying off debts and raising this kid right means putting up with the presence of criminals, thugs, and ex-Alliance...well, he's long since swallowed his pride on a few things.

    I hope it's okay that I didn't mention much of Decklyn's background. My intent was to have it come out through character interaction, but I can put out some of it if you guys want me to.

    I'm heading off to check my book to be absolutely sure, but I'm pretty sure that d8 to d10 is one die step, not two.

    Or, alternately, I could be in the habit of screwing up basic maths when I make posts after local midnight...

    Anyway, so the d8 stands for 'none of the assets count', the d12 for 'one asset', and I've got to do d12+d4 for 2 assets and d12+d8 for 3.

    "2 Assets" - (1d12)[10]+(1d4)[1]
    "3 Assets" - (1d12)[4]+(1d8)[1]

    *grin* Sofia's first brush with life's seedy underbelly! Once she's worked out what's going on, she'll be so thrilled...

    So, is that the other PCs they're trying to set Sofia up with? Because I thought the PCs and the scammers were separate groups... my mistake if there's just the one!

    And see, I thought they were separate groups too 'cause I wasn't a scammer, but then I saw that apparently the scammers were gonna be her crew and I was like "wait a minute, aren't we supposed to be her crew? Are...are we the ones scamming her?" but then I got read the whole first post again and we're all either starting out completely uninvolved with the scam, or at best hearing about other people scamming her?

    EDIT: So I guess long story short is that I have no idea what's going on in this scene. >.<
