Rechit Odantra

Background
Rechit is a loud spoken creature with an imaginative mind and the heart of a general! or so he thinks. In reality, he is more romantic than either imaginative or brave, and more brash than calculating. This hasn't kept him from reading far and wide among military literature, and from being an avid and fairly talented member of the strategic gaming community.

Rechit specializes in naval tactics (or at least he plays those the most)

*IGNORE BACKGROUND WHILE I COME UP WITH SOMETHING ELSE*
It is wrong to say that Wilda is an ambassador for the AIs. It is more accurate to say that he occupies a nice closer to "well trained service animal", since he thinks at a speed that can easily interact with humans and AIs. He travels the world, meeting fascinating people and AIs and playing one of the few games that AIs have not solved yet. He is currently enroute to Chicago to watch an airshow, before heading to New York for a convention of high-speed thinkers

@Poonbahbah
I can't believe I missed this; you don't get any points for being illiterate, since this is the norm in this setting.
Aside from that, everything looks good. :)

@ericthered
Your build and background looks good, except for one minor thing: since everyone is illiterate in this world, there's no reading.
Rather, people gain knowledge from literature by either downloading the contents into their minds, having the computer read to you (which can range from something like an audiobook, to an AR-representation of Morgan Freeman reading out loud to you, to watching a spontaneous documentary based on the text of the book), or by asking the internet.

@samd6
As I told Poonbahbah, you don't get any points for being illiterate.
Also, where are the Illumination Perk and Fidgety Quirk from? I can't find them anywhere.
Oh, and about your character's background: Go and all other games have been mastered by the AIs in this setting (that's sort of an important theme in this setting; that AIs have so much surpassed humanity that people have simply put them in charge of everything out of trust and complacency). If anything, the AIs have devised their own games which normal humans are incapable of playing.

Edited. Through happy coincidence I had three unspent points so I didn't have to really fiddle with anything.

Edited. Fidgety isn't listed in any book, perhaps I should have listed it as Quirk: Can't sit still

I was thinking of coming up with something for this one.

I wanted to ask... Are you familiar with / would you allow Jack of All Trades? It's printed in Power Ups: Talents, and each level (to a maximum of 3) gives a +1 to all attribute based skill defaults.

@Poonbahbah
Alright, everything looks good now. :D

@samd6
Your build looks good now, and no you don't need to rename Fidgety, I just wanted to know if it was mentioned in any book. Now I know that it's not.

@the_matrix_walker
No, sorry. I ask that you pick your traits from the three books I mentioned in the OP: the Basic Set, Bio-Tech, and Ultra-Tech.

Besides, we are supposed to be competant!

I ment listen/watch/sensie rather than read.

Any suggestions on my build?

@ericthered
Ah, I see.
As for your build... I guess it could use an individual advantage or two, since as of now you only have racial advantages. Other than that, it looks good.
