    There's no color for eccentric, but I think Bold Chartreuse comes close.

    Roxie "Valkyrie" King ready to do this ob!

    ...and I forgot to mention anything about Roxie's Newtech x10 submachine gun, lovingly called "Moxie". Higher damage (not sure if I gave it 2 or 3 steps up, can't recall the SMG base damage off the top of my head) partially from better ammo and partially from miniaturized gravity tech (it's basically a small, rapid-fire railgun), double range, made more compact, and as the special feature I was thinking that the penalty for burst fire may be one step lower.

    If that is too much, maybe it has stabilizers and targeting computers that allow Roxie to not take penalties on shots for moving (or reducing them by one step) or the gun ignores a certain amount of armor? It's meant to be an aggressive shock trooper weapon to get in people's grills or outmaneuver them and make fights short and brutal.

    Oh, and Roxie uses the speech color of

    You should probably still pick a colour for her written notes, y'know.

    Andrew "Andy" Paulson will speak in bold teal.

    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.

    I'd be more surprised, but Squadfather disappeared from the last attempt at running this game, too.

    Are we out anything important without Decklyn?

    Squadfather seems to have actually disappeared this time (last post was about 2 weeks ago). So... do we have a backup medic? I just ask out of curiosity and totally not because I made a ridiculously squishy character that freezes up at the outbreak of combat...

    Obligatory question: do you want me to turn Roxie into a medic in order to be able to continue the game? She would be a non-combatant, but still just as motivating/scary. Reason for that being that this system looks like you either go into being a medic hard or not at all, because the difficulty values get very high very fast (and field surgery gets heavily penalized, even with a good doctor's bag).

    However, advice for building a medic that can also do other things (perhaps even combat) would be appreciated.

    In line with being an old injured man, Str has shifted to d4 and Alertness to d10. Athletics and Covert have been lowered to nothing; Knowledge, Mechanical Expertise, and Medical Expertise have all been raised to d6. This should help give us a backup medic/mechanic.

    For much the same reason (i.e. lack of dedicated medic), I've shifted around some of Sofia's build as well; trading in Athletics, Craft and Technical Engineering (all d2s) and dropping 3 d8 specialities (Appraisal, Painting and Costuming) for Medicine (d6) + General Practice (d8) + Surgery (d10). Just don't ask why a Companion is a trained surgeon - she might just tell you

    I've also switched Major Weak Stomach (which wouldn't make much sense for someone who'd trained as a Surgeon) for Major Bleeder (which works just as well as an explanation for why she never learned to fight).

    Then I've spent some of her spare cash on a MedAcad Doctor's Bag (using up her 525 Platinum). She'll also got some money for other medical supplies, but we'll need to get her a space to serve as a medbay first

    So I got some unfortunate news on my end. The holiday of 420 has screwed me over heavily. At work I went to to bring my coat and duffel-bag to the work truck and as I was walking through the street, I slung my jacket over my shoulder...........And my phone went flying.......straight onto the road. I was not definitely not happy but I still had 3 hours of work left lol So gaming for me will have to take a short hiatus until I can figure this out.
