Tucking my nowhere-near-complete character sheet in a spoiler here as I need to restart my laptop and can't be bothered to save it as a text file or anything. Feel free to nab the code if you want, I find character sheets are generally mucheasier to read if they're not in one super long column.

Anywho quick questions in regard to aptitudes. Is the number of points in an aptitude the number of dice you roll for that aptitude, or the number of dice you add to the relevant ability's dice pool? There's a good chance my eyes are just jumping straight over the the explanation in the book but as it stands I can't figure it out.

So I found a rather excellent dice roller online for the system and after testing it to make sure it isn't too favorable on either side I am presenting it.

Also want to know how everyone is coming along with their characters.

Still looking for my book. But thinking of playing an ex calvery soldier, possibly a captian, that is now a texas ranger *smiles*. I thought about a huxter and just play a gambling gunslinger but since it has been a long time since I played, I figured it be best to just play a mundane gunslinger/ranger.

I am still here. Finally found my book. Sent the GM my introduction for my character. Working on the details of the background now. Then I need to make some changes to my character before I send him to the GM for approval.

Just back in town after massive familial obligation shenanigans that lasted two weeks. Not a death in the family, no, but two people I might murder at this rate...

Anyway, if you are still interested in doing this, BraveEarth, I'm still interested. I don't know how many people are still around? I will try and dig up the notes I took previously on my character and get it done tomorrow or Tuesday. Probably Tuesday as tomorrow will be catchup day at work.

I'm still around it looks like we have 4 maybe 5 all together which works in our favour ^.^ Sadly given the time of year this might be a slow game. I've been obsessing over the system a great deal atleast. I would like one more but I'm not going to hold up the start for that.

I'm still interested, just didn't want to pour a couple hours into a character when it looked like we weren't going to get enough PCs to pull it off.

Also of someone could take a look at the crunchy bits of my sheet and let me know if she's going to be slaughtered three posts in that'd be great. Like I mentioned before I've never actually played this game and the system itself is honestly really counter-intuitive.
