    Alright!

    I've done some thinking and I have decided to be nice to you guys. I will be putting this into the character generation post but I'm typing it out here so it gets seen.

    You now get 200 XP for character creation. These points have the following caveats.

    1) 60 points must be allocated into your core stats at 20 points per dominion (Physical/Precision/Mental). You may choose how that 20 points plays out between the two aspects of the dominion but 20 points must go into each.

    2) A further 40 - 80 points must be allocated to your core stats however you want. A minimum of 40 must be put into core and up to a maximum of 80 points. The most you can put into initial physical stats as a total is 140 XP.

    This leaves you a maximum of 100 points to spend on skills or a minimum of 60 points. I have tweaked skill scores to reflect the new build options.

    However, I can give you the broad strokes of what gangs are on offer:

    We've got classic Russian mob as the big players, a coalition of Triads, Yakuza and Geondal as a large but fractious primary opposition to them, a crew of delivery/transport/messangers/couriers who specialise in stolen vehicles and moving product, a bunch of burly and angry blue collar workers unions that have gotten caught up with gangland politics, a loose and decentralised counterculture movement mostly comprising of homeless folks, low tier drug dealers, students and artists and a bunch of riverside hustlers in the pleasure districts.

    That's the kind of persons you'll be interacting with.
    Just to confirm, the ol' rich hackers faction from previous iterations of this game aren't in this one?

    Not saying for sure I'll join this. I burnt out pretty badly earlier this year for a number of reasons and I'll want to make sure that doesn't repeat.

    Yeah, the hacker game are gone from this iteration. If you want to run a hacker build, there's room for that in the game but there is specifically no hacker team this time.

    The toning down of the setting to be a bit more realistic made them not really fit any more.

    I do hope you join!

    I'm just excited to have her, name notwithstanding.

    Lovely to see the boy back in action. Like the backstory, the power looks good. I like the notion of using setup of physical actions to inflict a mental damage down the line and it has enough variance within it to allow for different levels of effectiveness.

    Your mathematics on XP spending is good. Please add the following Rep Stats to your profile.

    MOB REP
    Fear: 30 (Known enforcer and attack dog, while he's been small time, he's already got a bit of a reputation. We'll discuss some specifics of this via PM prior to game start)
    Respect: 0

    POLICE REP
    Notoriety: 30 (As above, small time but a known criminal element. The cops don't like One-Two that much.)
    Familiarity: 0

    Also I like that he has a theme song. Themes are definitely encouraged.

    I've added One-Two to the cast list and am pleased that we already have some very different playstyles on the go.
