I don't think I'll ever do items like this again.


@Sunfish: Everything adds up so far.
For the record, I would probably put "dual wield" under speed in this case.

For each of the revolvers, I'll say 450.
15 for each moon clip.
.6 per round.
40 per holster.
20 for a gun cleaning kit.

20 for a basic repair kit for your guns only.
(I imagine for anything "better" you'd have to go to a shop.)

25 for the wakizashi (it's nothing special, probably just +6 damage).
20 for a matching scabbard (faster draw, safety).
.5 for a cleaning rag.
5 for a 1 quart canteen (if you want one with X quarts, just multiply the price by X).

@Sunfish: 20$ for the back pack is fine.

So, uh, I guess you're done then.
Like I said, I'm gonna leave the nitty gritty details what each item does until the very end.

Just to go on record, the vest isn't pistol "proof," just resistant. (Damage is changed from firearms to hand to hand).
Realistically speaking, I believe it would still be painful, like getting punched or hit with a hammer (I wouldn't really know, and it probably depends).

Even with body armor, bullets can still do damage in the form of impact trauma. And with burst weapons (thinking specifically of the AN-94, where the second shot can 'hammer' the first one in) the concentrated fire can render the armor virtually useless. Weapons technology is always several steps ahead of defensive.

I think I fixed it.

@Glyph: You fixed the skills issue, so you're all set there.

Now you've just got to figure out your items.
With the prices I gave you (especially the bumped up pistol price), some things will have to go.

@Glyph: Yup, everything looks in order.
If I did my math right, you have no money left.


So now we're just waiting on Fluffy for his character.
Then I'll make my own character.
Then I'll figure out what each of the items do.
Then we should be pretty close to starting.

Name: Ray Cashman

Gender: Male

Age: 21

Height: 6' 3"

General Build: Broad shoulders, fairly muscular, a bit of a beer gut.

Appearance: Shaggy dark brown hair and a scruffy beard, blue eyes, farmer tan, wears jeans, a T-shirt, and sneakers.

Backstory (Childhood, Growing Up, Adulthood): As a young child at only 5 years of age his preschool sent him away to a behavioral correction facility for almost two years because of a hyperactivity disorder, he didn't go back home till he was almost seven, and after that he lived with his alcoholic mother and many equally alcoholic step-fathers, usually told to stay in his room and be quiet, and he would because if he didn't he'd either get a 'whoopin' or yelled at.
He's always loved guns of all kinds -pistols, rifles, shotguns, you name it- And would always play with sticks and use his imagination whenever he was outside.

When he was old enough to get a job he started working at a nearby stable and immediately left his mother's house and moved in with his sister till he could afford a place of his own. After three years of working at the farm he finally saved up enough to get an apartment of his own. In less than a year of having his own place, he was robbed while at work one day, all of his electronics were gone and everything was trashed... This drove him to purchase his first gun.

Another year or so passed and he moved to a neighborhood with less criminal activity, but he wanted some excitement in his life... He was bored, and after being robbed, wanted to make a bit of a dent in the local crime. He just decided one day that he could put his gun and his strengths to good use and become a mercenary... Once he withdrew about half his money from the bank and bought some equipment.

@Fluffy: When you took half of your speed for initiative, did you round "down?" I did the math a couple times and I don't think you did. (It's one point, but yeah.)

I'm not sure what happened with resist fatigue or pain tolerance. I would treat them as different things.
Pain tolerance we could say gives an extra wound point for each point spent (which helps with damage penalties).

Your items are all set.

So take that one point out somewhere, and figure out what you'll do with resist fatigue and pain tolerance (resist fatigue is required).

@Fluffy: Alright, one last matter of business then.

The skill "resist fatigue" is required/free (starting at 15), but I'm not seeing it.
So you'll have to throw it in there (and maybe adjust some points, depending on what you want).

The detailed explanation of the skill is here.
A fatigue check might be done after a tiring event. You roll against your body stat. You succeed, nothing happens. You fail, you suffer a -10 penalty to some appropriate things (body, speed, some related skills to name a few).
The resist fatigue skill allows you to flip-flop a failed roll (into a success) if the result will be under your skill.

@Fluffy: You've got fifteen points extra overall.
So just take away those fifteen points from somewhere (doesn't all have to be one place), and you should be all set.

Alright, here's my character.

Spoiler:
Name: Peter Shriver (Prefers Pete, sometimes calls himself “Driver”)
Gender: Male
Age: 20
Height: 5’10”
General Build: Lean, slim figure, healthy weight, only a little more muscular than average.

Appearance: Caucasian, farmer’s tan. Buzzed black hair, shaved face.
Sometimes smells of automotive parts, and/or covered with grease.
Usually wears:
A black baseball with “Fallon’s Auto Repair” written on it.
Loose, dirty old T-shirts (over bullet proof vest over wife beater).
Long, worn cargo pants with belt. Boots.

Backstory:
Growing up, his family (father, mother, much younger brother) was considerably stable. His father owned a legitimate auto repair shop, and did a good job of keeping it that way despite the shady neighborhood. His mother was more the stay at home mom type. Peter started to learn his father’s trade young (as did his little brother).

Despite his strict father, Peter got into the bad crowd and committed various minor criminal acts. His father became especially upset when the various crimes started to get involved with his car business. Peter tried to justify it by saying it was for the company, and fair considering everyone else did it, but his father didn’t buy it. Eventually he was kicked out of the house.

Peter soon found work elsewhere. A point came where someone asked for a car driver for less than legal reasons, to which Peter obliged. Similar requests came later, and he became more involved with the related missions.

Rage Passion: People directly opposing him or his “people.”
Fear Passion: Being left/sent alone/vulnerable.
Noble Passion: Helping his “people.”

I realized we all forgot to put adjectives with our stats, but oh well.

I think what I'll do is, I'll get the RPG started, and then I'll figure out the details of each item. Less delay in getting to play, I guess.
If you want to make any last minute changes, please say so and hurry.

By the way, we'll assume you each have keys to the car and house.

Mission Briefing:
Spoiler:
The Sanborn family is a (very) wealthy family living in the town West Set.
They may or may not be involved in illegal activities.
The eldest son, Jonathan, was kidnapped for ransom about a week ago. Negotiations are being carried out, but a reward for rescue is almost guaranteed. High bounties are presumed to be involved.

Jonathan is 27 years old. He’s 5’11”, caucasian. Thinner frame. Long curly black hair, full beard, green eyes.
There’s no other outstanding details.

Authorities are not in pursuit (at least not publicly), but instead are leaving things to the negotiations.

Your closest lead is that you overheard from a bartender (from the Stumble In Bar) that someone was hiding someone else from West Set.

These are everyone's characters data's (condensed). Items are at the bottom, and their respective properties. Some properties (like for sleeping bag) weren't listed.
I admit I rushed through a little, so things might be a little sloppy (shouldn't really matter though).
If there's any questions, feel free to ask.

@Fluffy: Just checking, you're aware you only have one magazine for your pistol right? The one that's loaded.

@Glyph: Just checking, you're aware you don't have any kind of bullet protection, right?

I was aware that I hadn't taken any body armor. Would you recommend it? I've read all the rules on firearms damage, but they're not a very useful frame of reference when we don't know how many wound points we have. Maybe it says how many we do somewhere and I just didn't see it...
And would a sniper really need one? Usually the distance and the element of surprise make it kind of redundant, and I would need to seriously modify my equipment list to purchase even light armor. And just for the record, FMJ is considered armor-piercing, correct?

Yes, I'm aware of my sidearm's ammunition situation. I'm also aware I don't have a holster for it... I assumed I might be able to acquire these items later on.

@Glyph: FMJ isn't really considered 'armor piercing' but it has better penetration ability than standard lead ammunition.

A lead bullet mushrooms on impact, causing more damage to soft targets. Full Metal Jacket reduces the round's ability to warp on impact, giving it more penetration to harder targets. It's more useful for piercing body armor, and maybe light vehicles...

The difference between AP (Armor piercing) and FMJ is the type of metal used, and the amount. Armor piercing usually just uses hardened steel or tungsten near the tip, while FMJ completely encases the lead round with the metal. That's why it's called FULL metal jacket.

@Fluffy: Acquiring a holster later on in the game is plausible, yes.
For now, I assume the pistol is in your pocket or something.

@Glyph: Acknowledged about the body armor. I just wanted to make sure you're aware.

Your wound points start out as whatever your body stat is.
As you take damage, you'll only know relatively how much you have, based on how I tell you how you're feeling.
Note that firearm damage is limited by the user's firearm skill.

For game purposes, I was just going to treat FMJ as "normal."
