The Intel Phase (and gear selection) would follow the interrogations.

Is that cool with everyone?
Tian will definitely be active, and will start with Hans Greff. We can switch off once or twice as appropriate, right?

Unless I'm beaten to it, I'll hit the books within a couple of days and see if any good options jump out for either of your characters.

LP - I'm not sure what the Dramatic Conflict: Interrogation rules say about switching Predators in the middle of the conflict. I'll have to look at it. It doesn't sound unreasonable, so as long as we can keep it from stretching the scene too much I don't see why not.


Merc's characters should be pretty easy. Preston is taking another level of Triggerman and Case is taking another level of Hacker. Preston first:

  • Change class to Martial Artist 4 / Triggerman 3
  • Change Experience to 26350
  • Add - Reputation 12 under Experience
  • Change Vitality to - Vitality Points 68 (14 base, + 3d12+6 martial artist, + 3d12+6 triggerman)
  • Change Defense to - Defense 21 (10 base + 6 class + 5 dex)
  • Change Fortitude to - Fortitude +5 (2 base + 2 con + 1 class)
  • Change Initiative to - Initiative +11 (6 class + 5 dex)
  • Change BAB table to -
BAB +7 (+4 martial artist, + 3 triggerman)
Unarmed +12 (+7 BAB, +5 dex) martial artist feat
Melee +8 (+7 BAB, +1 str)
Ranged +12 (+7 BAB, +5 dex)
  • Add a Proficiency (I'd recommend upgrading Rifle or Tactical to forte or picking up something explosion-y like Guided)
  • Change Attacks table to -
Unarmed Strike - +12, 2d6+5
Katana - +8, 1d10+2, 1/19-20 (1 Caliber I pick)
x2 -Sig Sauer P229 Chambered in 9MM - +12, 1d10+1, 1-2/20 (2 Caliber I picks)
Smith and Wesson Bodyguard .357 Magnum - +12, 3d4+1, 1/19-20 (1 Caliber II pick)
  • Change Knowledge/Request/Gear table to -
Knowledge +10 (+7 career level, +3 int)
Request +9 (+7 career level, +2 cha)
Gear +9 (+7 career level, +2 wis)
  • See note below on Skills
  • Pick a level 7 feat (I have some recommendations if you want them)
  • Add Gun Fu to class abilities, read up on it so you understand its applications


Does it look to anyone else as if Preston is short a few skill points? He should have 4 per level from classes and 3 per level from Intelligence, so 7 x 9 = 63, but he has 54 spent.


I'll do Case's later, I'm at work so I have to jet.

Thanks tree.

I just don't really have the ability right now to buff back up on this system. I'm starting the job hunt in full force now, and sadly looking at goose-eggs for hiring high school English teachers.

Here we go for Case:

  • Change Class to Hacker 7
  • Change Experience to 26350
  • Add - Reputation 12 under Experience
  • Change Vitality to Vitality Points 38 (8 base, + 6d8 hacker)
  • Change Defense to Defense 16 (10 base + 3 class + 3 dex)
  • Change Reflex to Reflex +7 (4 base + 3 dex)
  • Add a Proficiency (no idea)
  • Change Knowledge/Gear/Request table to
Knowledge +16 (7 Hacker + 2 talent + 2 feat + 5 int)
Request +10 (7 Hacker + 3 cha)
Gear +8 (7 Hacker + 1 cha)
  • Skills - Case's skills aren't right either. A Hacker with a 21 Intelligence and the Brainy quality should have (8 + 5 + 1) x (level + 3) skill points, so 126 at level 6 and 140 at level 7.
  • Feats - pick one for 7 and one for 3.
  • You can now use Trap Door twice per session. I don't know if you want to note this anywhere or not.

Kate and Sam are good, right?
I don't have my books right now, I'd have to do some searching.

I noticed that nothing has happened with any of these characters yet. Do either of you need further assistance?

I have a random recommendation for Sung - pick up Guided and Vehicle as weapon proficiencies. Vehicle combat is in your future. You get one at level 7, and if you wish to pick up both I'll let you swap something else out.

No, just need to sit down and copy-pasta, which I'll do tonight since I have neither to watch my children or do work.

Cool. You'll need to figure out the skills thing, but I think it is a net plus for you on both characters.

Hmm, I chose Rifle for Tian's new proficiency, but I'm not sure if I actually want it over SMG. I can't decide which would be more effective or thematic.

EDIT: SMG! Probably.

I'm gonna say SMGs. Rifles are much more likely to be used in a premeditated, fully voluntary situation, whereas an SMG is easier to stow unless needed in a jiffy.

Of course, rifles do have some extra oomph to make up for Tian's lack of combat prowess.

Maps are done, stat blocks mostly done, outline finished. I'm ready to rock and roll if my youngest will give me fifteen minutes of total peace per day to start writing actual posts. We'll start with the interrogation(s) right after I update my other two games.

Well starting from here some stuff happened.

tree intended to tally up rewards
"An Inelegant Segue" is going to get a different name and we'll be posting there soon. It will involve the interrogations of Hans and Mao.
tree considered making Request checks easier. LP suggested having Networking make it work faster to make it still a useful skill. tree seemed to like the idea
tree asked whether we have gmail/google docs. I acted like a little bitch about it, then tree explained he wanted to stick things on a spreadsheet, and I continued my bitchery. The discussion branched out into those pdf sheets Merc uses often, and I continued to bitch.
tree posted a reward thread. Rejiggered experience. End result is that everyone is now level 7.
LP fumbled a roll and now Tian came out of all of this with less influence.
tree mentioned he's working on a map.
People did some levelling.
tree made excuses.
tree reminded us that 10 ranks in a skill means more synergy and higher skill cap.
Jump a couple months forward, tree pokes Mercutio and Darius.
tree reminds us that we're going to choose active agents on a per scene basis instead of the previous "both active at the same time" deal.
Darius acknowledges the poke.
tree gives Merc some levelling suggestions.
Random stuff, tree suggests Tian be proficient in SMGs.
Imageshack appears to delete my portrait and I briefly try to find a new one, LP points out my previous one was still working... somehow.
tree says that he's getting closerer to done.
jiffypop asks what she missed even though the GM himself is presumably right there.
Little z acts like an ass. Again.

tl;dr: The things you might have missed are the way we're handling multiple characters and the thing about request checks and outfitting.
The request check stuff happens about when I posted that link.
If you already got that since it was pretty early on when you might've been reading, and if you knew about the levelling up thing... uh... nothing else actually happened.

Actually what I did was google and reupload the pic. You're lucky I recognized it.

A-HA! So Imageshack DID fail me!
Well I feel better.

Also thanks, LP.
