How about:
"The final and total roll bonus for the weapon can not be higher than the largest of: your exotics, and your natural bonus at using said weapon"
? I think that's what you mean. If you have +2 exotics and 0 natural bonus, it can't go above +2, but if you have 0 exotics and +2 natural bonus it can go above +0, but not above +2, right?

Yeah, that's a much better way of wording it. Your ability to use an unknown weapon = min (natural skill + bonus, max(exotics, natural skill))

Lemme know if he's a terrible, terrible character, if I've made a serious mistake/error.


Name: Josiah Wicket
Age: 26
Gender: Male
Personal Information: 5'11", with almost black hair, has slight tinge of brown. Amber eyes, incredibly pale skin, rather thin build. Conceived in a bar fight, born in a junkyard. Dumped in an escape pod and left outside an orphanage a few days after birth, along with a letter telling of his birth and name. Grew up with no memory of parents. Always kept himself apart from anyone, but became more social after a few orphans befriended him.
Personality: Somewhat quiet guy, though he can sometimes get really angry when provoked. Scared of sharp needles, especially when they are in the hands of doctors. Hates anything related to emeralds for some reason. Continuously forgets to eat food. Skinny as a result.
Reason your character got REKT: Josiah attacked and killed a doctor and his two aides when they tried to inject him with a syringe prior to a medical operation.

Regarding Stats, Skills and Purchases...I don't see anything wrong there.

Special reason for the Electrolaser though? Do you expect mostly robotic foes?

And, what I found out...quiet characters can be hard to roleplay, which is very important. But ultimately your decision.

Electrolaser works fine against everything with electronics, such as spaceships, so perfectly fine as a first ship weapon.
Personality could use a bit more depth, yeah, but that's up to you.

Quiet characters don't work in REKT. I've let it go in the past, but starting semi-recently (somewhere around the start of this year) I began applying the rule of "no quiet/loner characters". It might work in DnD, which is stat/roll-centric, but it doesn't work well at all in REKT, which is story/character-centric. When a character is quiet, the player is quiet, and when the player is quiet, I am blind. It brings down the experience not only for them, but everyone around them as well, and can become rather frustrating for everyone "at the table".

In short: No quiet characters.


Everything else looks great, though!

Injected caffeine directly into his tongue, filled his brain with kool-aid, and tickled his purchases. :twisted: :ghost:

I'd not be surprised if it's just me, but in my experience, most people are like this :V :ghost:
