Alright then - I updated my sheet while going for 75/25 points in my original application.

Only problem I have is that I am clocking in at 76 points now, because I don't know how one could have weaponsmith for only one point. Now I would like to save that one point there, otherwise I'd just take it out of Characteristics.

You can owe me a point against future xp! Weapon smith is specifically for different weapons, I assume small arms (firearms)??

Sure, sounds great. In volume I of core it just calls it "Firearms", and in skills it's called "Firearms, advanced" - but the categories might be different in monster hunter international. Basically being able to service the rifle and pistol would be important. I'll just change the points in my summary.

Also note that I put the bailiffs hunting Noah up as a complication.

Jimmy Bullocks, HeavyR on the net, was one of those kids that had always been bullied in school. "Jimmy Buttocks, Fatty the Bull, Piggy Pork;" anyone with a weight problem had heard the same. Jimmy's problem was that he was smart in some ways, not so smart in others. Being a social outcast, he mastered the internet, joining hacking circles as early as middle school and getting into the dark web.

There, in addition to hacking, he started getting obsessed with bombs and bomb building, first just in theory, then moving on to ordering various supplies and building more and more complex explosives. Inevitably, some order or posting tripped one of the warning programs that the government uses to spy on us all. Jimmy went on a list of potential school shooters (or in his case bombers). Looking for a high profile bust to boost his campaign for mayor of San Diego, the US attorney for San Diego sent in the FBI and arrested Jimmy. They couldn't prove he was going to blow up his school (though admittedly he had thought about it . . . a lot), but they could prove that he was trafficking in illegal arms sales across state lines and off to juvie he went.

For some unknown reason, taking a fat, picked on, and highly intelligent kid, and surrounding him with violent gangbangers and drug dealers didn't seem to rehabilitate him. Toughened him up, obvously. Gave him a close familiarity with knives, shives, and guns to go with his already heavy knowledge of guns. Got him kicked out of his house. All those, yeah.

Now, Jimmy is 18, his juvenile sentence is coming to an end, he's got no home, no high school diploma, no job, and nothing but a knowledge of bombs and a lot of hate for the gang kids and the federal authorities and six months at a "halfway house" which is supposed to reconnect him to society.

Ok, updated to 75 points with 25 matching. Man, what a squeeze. They are certainly normals, but with good skills. Not sure how long they would survive in any monster confrontation, but hey, monsters gotta eat, too.

I've update the PDF. Same link.

Hehe yeah. 20 STUN and 10 BODY feels light to me, but I've only ever played supers in this system, so it's hard to be sure.

Definitely will need to toughen up though. And probably work on offense too. I did finally track a copy of the book down though, so I may tweak the sheet our GM generously provided for me once I figure things out.

It's all good! I'm actually using an app called Hero Designer to enter and track the character write ups and have a link to a separate folder for each character in the first post table. Tweaks are welcome! I just need to know specifically what you tweak to update it in the app that I'm using.

Actually, Renata is good to go as is if you're okay with her, except for just adding a 5 point Complication?

You are totally free to tweak further rather than start in play as is though. Please check out the link to the character folder in the table in the first post. I put in a Real Text Format doc that should open ok in Google docs.

Thank you! I will review and enter into Hero Designer and respond.

Wow! Okay, he's got some anger! That might be okay, but is he a murder hobo? Just checking cause rule number two from the first post....

Okay! Looking good. Can you trim down the Complications to 25 points total?

Thank you! I'll work on getting a character sheet up for you to look at (in the folder linked in the table in the first post).
