Received and printed, thanks, Belkregos.

So, first question, Lando: if you're combining two masterwork enhancements on the same weapon, do the cost multiples add together, or do you multiply them together?

IOW, if, say Jose wants to add both a custom sights (x3) and lengthened barrel (x3) to his Spencer Carbine ($27), is the cost multiplied by x6 ($162) or x9 ($243)?
-------------
Either way, Jose would have gotten both of these enhancements built into the rifle. So, I'll remove either an additional $135 (for x6) or $216 (for x9) to pay for them. Yes, I know that means the weapon won't be a carbine anymore, but it was the best weapon available to Jose out at the Presidio of Monterey, and the master gunsmith there performed the modifications for him to give the gun a little more range and accuracy.
--------------
Also, Lando, I went ahead and reduced Concentration and Search by 1 rank each, and spent those two skill points on Speak English. I then removed the Speak English feat and replaced it with Point Blank Shot (since Jose needs that for the other trick-shooting feats he'll be taking later on).

Depending on what you're doing with the masterwork stuff will depend on whether its "added" or multiplied together...seems your example matches one on pg 131. So it's [3+3] = x6 cost for the modifications for your Spencer.

As for the other changes, that's fine.

Okay, I've changed the rifle, and reduced my cash by $135 to reflect the extra cost. Thanks.

Nothing like Clint to get the mental juices flowing.... your pc looks fine by the way. I'm still looking at the details, but overall he's fine.

I just another player request from some folks who run a OLG Wild West and Sidewinder mixed game too (inquired about playing in it)..they saw my posts over at the Sidewinder/Dog House rules boards....

Looks like a 5th possible player in the works..who'll you'll likely meet on the road.....this should be a blast. Got some nice comments on my game.

Post it yourself so that you can edit small things as the game goes along. Lando can edit any post on this thread so the Gm has access. I used to use your avatar, I liked it best from the available selection.

great to know we have more players coming,

i expanded a bit on DosSantos background from the conversation DosSantos and Jose De la Cruz had and some movies i had for inspiration over the weekend, addded this to the background

“Grow up fast when yer by yerself, trouble has a nack fer finding you, don’t know how old I was when I killed my first men, got lucky shotim’n the neck, the devil’s brand on my bones, seems folks think they can get away with poking a fellar, til they see the guns he carries, there’s only so much even a boy can take, wasn’t long till I got some scores pay back, got some scrapes but not enogh to keep me down, more than once had to make a dead run, always managed to get up, the saints here kept me out of harms way, there came a time when it seemed I had someone on my trail all the time, sure as shooting the under taker knows he lays out headstones in endless rows, knew there would be more killings so I went off and joined the army, they didn’t seem to mind I yet didn’t have hair on my chest, where all too happy to see wasn’t afraid to pull the trigger, my first skirmish was pretty much like hunting in them woods, just sat up in some tree and they came marching right at us, there must’ve been over a hundred dead after the smoke cleared, went around and shot the rest who weren’t.

Those of us with the knack was made in to a special squad so we could travel light and on our own in to enemy’s territory, orders where pretty simple, just go around and make trouble where ever we could, they turned us loose, grey, blue, we all died the same, with room like that wasn’t long till we was killing men with out a uniform, always thinking was gonna die next, just didn’t happen, seems that went on the rest of the war, the war ended so they told me, came back west, lot of call for men with them skills.

Every once in a while I almost get trough a day with out thinking bout who I am and what I’ve done”

Your pc overall looks good, just missing gear/equipment/weapons/wealth....
please send me that asap. You may post Phineus on the character subforum thread. Please make a seperate/new thread for your pc. You may post the whole character sheet if you like or as much as you wish to share.

I'm very much enjoying your character expansion and further detail. Planning to award some xp for this as I like detailed backgrounds and seeing folks roleplay over just shooting/killing everything in sight.

BTW:

Currently yourself, Buck and Jose have earned 220 xp for your roleplaying and character backgrounds.

Should be able to cut/paste and might just need to edit it...check "preview" before you post it... or edit after you post if you don't like how it spaces.
