Swimming starts at End/2 ★

Read pages 10-11 in the book, re default skills.

Question about Linguistics. Page 11. The way I'm reading it is that you get your native language for free. The linguistics skill only applies to other languages.

"All characters are assumed to be fluent in their native language. Each point taken in Linguistics allows the player to speak and understand one foreign language"

So... being a French national I'd get French for free. IF I have Linguistics at 4, I would get 4additional languages. The first at 4, the other 3 at 2 each. Correct?

Next question. I see you guys talking about age. I can't find anything in the rules about that. Also... the pdf from Drive Thru isn't searchable? WTF?


Never mind. Found it in the original thread.

Confirming. Base age of 20. Two careers (same each time) gives me an age of 40. Correct?

Actually, anywhere from 25 to 44
No careers = 15-20; soc 5 or 6 I'd allow 15-25
One career: 20-32
two careers: 25-44

I'd officers with one career as company grade or major; or Ens-LtCdr
2 careers for captain to Brigadier or LtSG to Titular Commodore.
No flag officers nor general officers. (Noting that the UK Brigadier is NOT a General commission, but a positional title with insiginia.)

How do we determine the attributes for the character, distribution, free purchase or rolling?

I'm not afraid about bullets, what scares me is the speed at which they're incoming.

yup. I mildly prefer free purchase for myself, but have no issue with any of the three.

May he play bagpipe (as color note)? AFAIK there's no skill for that...
The career? not that I can tell.
:toungue_in_cheek:
Play the pipes? Any scot can... play them musically? whole 'nother matter
I have had players argue that it should fall under Gunnery (exotic), Leadership (Scots), Crime...
Music should be a skill. Bagpipe a specialty within it. Call Int based.

Default May I suggest

May I suggest that everyone calm down, remain friends and work through this? This was hastily put together and enjoyed the associated enthusiasm of all concerned.

arramis seems to be flexible from what I've seen above. Let's give this an honest chance and see how much fun we can have. To me this reminds me of Traveller in the beginning in that the "rules" were simple, the universe large and no one really knew what to expect.

I don't want to know much more than how to get my character together for an adventure into the unknown.

My PC is a roamer with no roots, getting older and not much other than some experience to show for it. The war has been over, for some, a few decades ago. The Wild West isn't so wild anymore.

Time to see what this newfangled space stuff is all about and what might be on a new planet for an adventurous spirit.

So, I'll stand you boys to a few rounds and we'll sign on before we quite come to our senses?

So Badger, funny sort of name you got there, grab your saddle and get your War Bag.

Rover, great name for this little junket, them damned boxes of books look right heavy so I'll just give you a hand loading.

Come on now, all this jawing done got my throat dry.
