Turns out I was only 1 skill rank under using the btb method, however some of my characteristics were raised when making mustering benefit rolls for my first career, so I actually made out a little better than I would have.
When I counted out my skills, I came up with the same number as I would have had with the point buy. So, I'm happy.

I also put a more complete character write up on my original character post.

Looks like everyone is pretty much done creating characters. We got a nice variety I think. :)

So, is this on for tomorrow then?

Yes.

I have rewritten, changed, and greatly expanded the opening "scene" I previously posted on the first page of this thread. Please go to page 1 and read the new version prior to game time.

The only change it will cause for your characters is this starts in Houston, Texas, not Dallas. For reasons that should quickly become apparent if you haven't wondered about it already once you read my rewrite.
Since its 20,000 I suggest "Captain Nemo" as his title. Beyond the obvious connection, he is one who sails on his own terms and ignores those he doesn't agree with...confident in his journey and goals.

I can't wait, however, over the weekend I went to roll 20 and tried to drop my icon and upload my character info ..... I guess I'm not smart enough to do so.

Let me know what to do & I'll hand him there asap.

Tree I've been thinking, my friend of a friend that is helping me get a job after my last military tour could be a contractor for NASA. Assisting their SAR, equipment recovery & security, etc etc etc. That would fit my character, and put him at ground 0 at the right place and at the right time. Let me know if it works for you and I'll finish my write up that way.

Excellent intro. I wonder if the "pax" and the humanoid appearance indicates they were here once before, thousands of years ago. Or perhaps they have just assumed a pleasing shape and their best guess at a universal language.

One thing we didn't do in our characters is set up "connections". Not sure how connected treebore wants us to be. I could probably have pretty obvious connections to Lurker, Maximus, and Kayolan.

I was going to go the whole "Ancient Alien" route myself. As for connections, I could have connections with Aergraith (Academia) and Lurker (University Hospital).

You guys can be as connected as you want. For example, you can all be working at the NASA location. You can be part of the police force in Houston, dealing with the rioting, etc... You can be there in some capacity for the military. Like some of you may want to say your still in the reserves.

How connected are you, even outside of all working at NASA? Well, almost all of you are prior military. At the very least there are a number of channels through which you can be aware of each other, IE you read about each other in any number of online Veterans communities, you could have met up at local Veteran get together locations, such as a VFW, you can do volunteer work at the local DAV's. There are lots of ways for Veterans to have come into contact with each other, and to have developed friendships with each other, aside from working at NASA in some capacity.

Heck, you could have all met at the local VA hospital, either getting into conversations while waiting for your appointments, or participating in PTSD help groups, volunteering there, etc...

Even Aramis could create a connection by being a volunteer via one of these volunteer groups, etc...

Then there are the possibilities created by your non military backgrounds. If you have a 3 in something like Archaeology, Biology, etc... you have very likely written papers for the various journals related to your field. So at least be indirectly aware of each other.

Everyones character sheet is up on Roll 20. The link to Roll 20 is in the first post of this thread. Those two of you who had already signed in/joined, won't be visible to the others, the others are all "All Players" right now. Since I couldn't assign the sheets to players who had yet to join the game. Realize the full Mongoose Traveller character sheet is there. I just copied/pasted what I found here in this thread to the bio/info section.

I am getting very jazzed by how much artwork I am finding that closely fits/approximates how I have envisioned this "setting". Not exact, but surprisingly similar.

I added probable connections to the end of my write up. I'll run with them unless someone waives me off what I put.

Well, what we managed to get in was interesting.

I forgot to say I actually have a skill related to that first contact situation. Have to get used to how the new game works.

So, I persuade the oily Star Gate men with stance, glance and gesture that we come in peace, all the while saying "amicus! amicus!"

:lol:

So what little bit we got in, had Merrick pledging his honor to the alien. The aliens way of offering marriage. (Remember those very nice and ornate large daggers they all wear on a chain hanging form their neck? Yes, you find the idea of wearing such large and heavy looking dagger/knives VERY uncomfortable to your neck.) Merrick swears he see's a momentary expression of being stunned cross the alien mans (Is he a man, or wearing the skin of a man?) face for the blink of an eye. How will the alien respond? Will he accept Merrick's marriage proposal? Will he turn it down? Will he violently turn it down? Tune in next episode to find out!

If so, let me be the first to congratulate the new couple and inquire to where the honeymoon will be? I hear the rings of some of the outer gas planets are wonderful this time of year ! :lol:

Stupid internet, stupid Skype .... I updated mine just now. What was going to take 35 + min last night (after already taking 10 min to get to that point) just now took me 8 min to do. I'll be so glad next spring when they finally get real high speed internet out here !

that said, I have double checked. I have the up to date Skype for next week ...

That's if we can use Skype. We are going on Friday to look at new laptops for the Mrs. Which means I get her old one, which is an update for computing power for me. And it has Win 7 on it. Though it will need a reinstall at some point after the Mrs gets all of her files and such off of the old laptop. I'll have to try to get it set up before next Monday night. But we do have Monday off, so I should be able to monkey with it some during the day.

My assumptions as your GM or CK are this: That you will show up to play in my games, That we are friends to some degree. Friends who enjoy playing an RPG together. That we are enough of a friend that reasonable attempts will be made to remain friends. That friends make an attempt to work out problems. That you will let me know if there are any problems within the game group, and give me, and the group, an opportunity to resolve any problems. That you realize we all invest time into this. We all invest a part of ourselves in this group activity. That we all owe each other a basic effort to keep things working, and to make an attempt to fix things if they stop working. If you cannot accept and agree to these basic assumptions of mine, please do me a favor. Quit my group. Now. Don't waste any more of my, or anyone else's, time. So if you sign into and play my games, I will continue on with these base line assumptions, and that you will too, and you will honor them as much as I do.

Did I miss something ...

If it is me, with all the computer / coms issues and being the weak link in that area, I'll back out so everyone else can more easily play.

Just let me know if that is it ...

No, I would never hold technical issues against anyone. This is all about personal commitment, and choices. Due to circumstances I am seeing unfold in other games, I am making it clear what my commitment is to all of you, and I am now insisting, due to the issues in other games, that all of you declare the same degree of commitment to me. If you sign into my next game session, I will take that as your declaration of commitment to me and my games. If you decide you can't have the same degree of commitment as me, I want to know that too.

As for personal commitment, .... I hate to admit that I was naive about the effect of getting another trained VSR and the result it would have on me at work. I had hoped/assumed it would free me up at work and I'd be able to commit to the game at the level I had previously been able to put into it. Sadly that isn't the case ... because with a new worker, the boss is now more willing to leave work early, put more of his work off on me and my buddy at work, and I have to help train the new girl up to the proper level and fill in the gaps of the training she got from the boss ... Because of that, and in light of the over 30 legal briefs I need to finish, there is no way for me to commit to the level I used to.

So, I will not be able to give my amazing write ups that make my character look like the hero of the game that saves the party week after week .... ;)

However, I'll be at the game, God willing and if the creek doesn't rise .... Considering my area did flood 4 times last year, and Wednesday night a tornado came within 12 miles of my house, those are real options, but other than that, I'll be there ! :mrgreen:
