I'll take a look at possible characters later today; right now, I'm thinking of something that's very much focused on the fighting aspect, so maybe one of the pilot classes. Not quite sure, though. Might go for a Zentraedi for once...
Couldn't stop myself from coming over - heard good things about the gm, and some of the people here seem oddly familiar...
Right now, my plan is to leave my usual comfort zone of 'brainy utility character' and go for a nice, straight-forward character who wants to get into battle asap. Think I'm favoring an Alpha for that, but I like both, so I'd be happy to take a Beta if that works better for the team. Considering the reconnaissance pilot right now, but I haven't read through all the options yet.
Also: Yay, advanced MA's! And Krav Maga is on the list! Sorry, that one almost made the way onto the last character sheet I made, I'll pick it up here.
One question: In the Shadow Chronicles, we have the chance to take a micronized Zentraedi without any change of attributes as far as I'm aware; meanwhile, the Marine book you mentioned in the interest check has them with their own stats. Which one is the way to go, Psychie
? Also: In the Marine book, there's different classes of Zentraedi - so if that's the way to go, do we roll which one we get, or can we choose one?
Always good to have someone who can do the communication thing - my attempt to do the character creation just ran into a dead end because females and males have different stats - damn, that's something that I usually decide in the end, and now I need to know it right at the beginning?
On a side note, I love how the different stats of the Zentraedi vary so little - like "roll a die and add 16" instead of "roll 5d6" - that's just so fitting for clones.
Short question before I mess stuff up: Can Zentraedi pick occs from the core rulebook? Zentraedi come with a restriction for the occs - occs in the Marine book are allowed, as well as ueef fleet officers, but I don't find that name anywhere.
One more thing: Do we stick with the skills available in both books mentioned, or are there more skills available? I haven't checked the lists myself, but I remember that a few interesting skills are spread across the different books.
