Number denoting how many yards up they are in picture. Possible set of two or more numbers like 1x5 or 2x5x7 first number being how many and second being how high.

If you don't need specific elevations shown on the map, you could use background colors or superimposed markers.

F = flying + number for height

F3 = flying 3 yards hight

F50 = 50 yards high

How are you playing a character that has 100 points more than anyone else?

Zonncxs, what other stuff do you have in there?

Swashbuckler is 250. Infernal is 75. What all else do you have in there?

I know I gave you an extra 24 points worth of disadvantages that aren't listed.

I can no longer quote what you said I can make my guy with since that PM is no longer in my inbox :(

I have the two skills you said I can have for free both at IQ level (3pts)

infernal cost 75pts

the big boost of points comes from my one and only weapon.

you ok'd it so I thought we were good. before any freebies its at 300/-50/-5.

before weapon its 264/-50/-5

as I said, I no longer can recall the number you gave me nor can I pull it up, but I believe this was what you said I can start with.

so if you don't count my weapon I am in par with the rest of the group (in fact if you count it nothing changes, its the only weapon I will ever use in this game unless you find something that can break it).

If you truly need me to change it I can, but it wouldn't be pretty :)


EDIT:: another note, you gave everyone luck for free, but the swashbuckler template has it already as a must, so would that balance things?

Yeah, I knew most of it was the sword. I was just hoping you had a breakdown of where those extra points went.

It's fine the way it is. 36 points for an orichalcum sword is pretty far out there, especially when it's signature gear already. That's overpriced by about thirty points.

If you figure it that way, it's 378 -30 -24 = 324

Looking at it that way, you're actually far fewer points than everyone else, since I've given all of the other characters an extremely expensive Patron that your character doesn't have access to. And everyone else will be getting free destiny points that you don't get either.

Change your Luck to Extraordinary Luck.


The other thing is, the characters who have been active up to this point will be receiving CP awards that the new characters don't get, so it's kind of skewed because of that as well. I'm just not going to be handing those out until the entire battle is over.

edited and saved, and aww, why I get no destiny points? :)

If you are using destiny for destiny points then I could take destiny for 15 instead of raising luck.

We're not. Those characters have been looked kindly upon by the gods' second cousin by marriage's butler's best friend's neighbor. They have a little bit of divine favor raining down upon them.

Your character... not so much.
