When rolling up stats, use the following rules:
If your base Attribute is a 3d6 (normal for humans), roll 4d6, rerolling 1's. With a 16, 17, or 18, add another 1d6 to your roll. IF that last die is another '6', roll another d6. This can give you a potential of a 30 on an attribute.

For non-humans (such as an Anti-Monster or Atlantian) that has a number like '19 + 1d6', roll the dice indicated, but reroll 1's and 2's.

Here is the Master Skill List for those without books. Some of these skills are not applicable, and all choices are to be approved by me.
http://home.wtal.de/marcorubert/SkilList.pdf

Finally, everyone can get one rolled number at max. That can be an Attribute, ISP, PPE, MDC or whatever your character has that is determined by roll of the die. Let me know what your choice is.

If you select one of the advanced Martial Art styles, make the following change to them:

There are the following additions/changes to the systems.
1. At character creation, should a system provide the bonus "Add x to CHI," the character instead adds 1 point of M.A. per 5 points of Chi.
2. When leveling, instead of receiving "One Additional Martial Art Power" or "Zenjoriki Power," etc., the character adds +1 to Initiative, +1 to Strike, and +1 to damage each time they receive that bonus.
3. When leveling, instead of receiving "Double Existing Chi," the character adds +1 to Parry, +1 to Dodge, and +1 to Roll with Impact.

Taking a page from Pathfinder, I am going to allow you to raise one attribute point every THREE levels you go up. This increase can be on any of your attributes.

Ok everyone! After thinking about it for a bit, I'm going to institute the Bonus Point system that has been discussed in earlier posts. As you level up, you get Bonus Points equal to 5 + 1/2 you current level, rounded up. These points do not roll over from level to level, so make sure you use them wisely. This Bonus Point can be used for any attack, defense or skill roll you want. What does a Bonus Point give you, you ask?

In the case of a d20 roll, you add an additional D6 to the result. In the event of a natural 1-4, it still is an automatic miss, so in that case, the BP is wasted.

For a percentile (d100) roll, you add a d6 to your roll, but each point you get is 5%, giving you a potential +30% to your roll.

When you use an BP, you must declare it before the base roll that it is being added to is rolled.

Corporal Eric Foss is a Coalition Grunt that is on the run from his former employers. He was exposed to some strange energy from a Rift opening up next to him, and now his body has been transformed into a super strong, Mega Damage being, stronger than a souped-up Borg and better protected. When his change was discovered, the Coalition scientists wanted to perform some very invasive exams of his new body, up to and including dissection!

Fleeing the examination (or worse!) table, Eric finds his salvation with the rogue-ish Trent. The smuggler quickly realized just how handy it would be to have a super strong and nearly indestructible sidekick, and was able to sneak Eric out of Coalition territory. Ever since that day, the former Grunt has worked to repay the rescue that saved his life.

  • Battle Name: Gradicus "The Red Edge" (Gradicus comes from the Latin Gradus. "He who marches into battle.")
    Birth Name: Valerius Pacifica of Clan Marciniszyn ("Mar-ci-ni-zin" as best as I can make out. Valerius is Latin for "Valiant". Pacifica is Latin "Peaceful, peace-loving, tranquility, kindness")

    Level: 4
    XP: 18,600 xp (21,501 xp for Level 5)

They blend together across his entire body, colorful, meaningful, and rich with trademark Marcinizyn skill.

Leap Year, Baby!
I'm not sure how XP and levels work in Rifts - is 3000 enough for the next level? if so, what needs to be addressed from the character perspective?

First off, your xp chart is in your Skills tab down at the bottom. Next, when you level up, you add 1d6 to your hit points, and all of your Skills get increased by whatever percentile is next to the main number. Your combat skills go up for your 2nd level of HtH Expert, and your ISP goes up by 1d6+1

For a good scene with the refugees (thank you, Psychie) and a good bunch of IC posts, I'm going to give everyone 2,000 more points, putting you at 5,000 total. That should be enough to get everyone to level 3. If anyone has any questions about leveling up, let me know.

I forgot to add, for the spellcasters, you may cross train one more spell from each other's spell lists in addition to what you get for leveling up.

Hey Sherwood, did you ever come up with an answer to my suggestion of letting me increase the range of my control of my Automations?

Sherwood, that's a neat solution that makes sense! Use skill slots! =)

Plus, we just hit level 4! Wasn't expecting that! 8D

Not that I am aware of. There are just sooo many races and classes available that a character builder would have to be massive in size.

I've seen a character builder a long time ago, but it was very basic and didn't have all the available updates that have come out.

Princess Psychie
Just wondering, how did you get your six attacks per round? HtH Basic gives you four, and one more from Boxing.

Also, what spells do you know?
