Looks like you underspent your Aptitude Points You spend 1 per level if that was the confusion. If you want to up your survival chances Size is the the key because of how the wound system works. Also keep in mind armor helps soak some of the damage roll as well. Guts is always helpful given that you will see a great deal of Guts Checks in any game. Also the Fightin' Aptitude needs a Concentration. From what I'm reading your character seems to be a tracker sort you may want to look into a Long ranged Pistol or Rifle... 

Also to all listening Smith and Robards is located in The City of Gloom, which is Salt Lake City. So if you want to go shopping for anything esoteric like that you can and not have to wait for shipping. Just throwing that out there.

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.

Haven't found my notes yet, might have to rebuild from memory.

Wanted to point out that because things usually DO slow down so much around the holidays, it might not be a bad plan to spend December sort of roleplaying the party into a party...Creating cross-connections, backstory, flashbacks and past interactions that bind the characters together beyond 'You have all been given this mission'...And then launch in January?

Just a thought!

I don't mind that idea so long as everyone else doesn't.

Works for me. Just adjusting my character a bit before resubmitting him for approval.

Still here, bro. 

Do I know the effects of the blessing on my tomahawks?  Or is it a mystery?

I'm looking over my relic creation guide and the ghost dancers book and Haven't quite decided yet.

EDIT: Muse given that Carnival is going to be using that Source Book and it gives Indian PC a bit of an edge with some things I would reccommend looking it over. Atleast to gain a Guardian Spirit.

My appologies folks. My grandmother passed away last friday and that was the final straw with not able to see my kids and getting somewhat depressed during the holiday season, I am sinking into a deep slump. All the drive I have is to just lay down and pray this nightmare will end. I need to shake this melencholy before it consumes me from within. Will have the next three days off so will do my best to catch up then. Thank you for your patience.

Or slow it down to a stand still till the holidays are over.

Well that stand still could lead to momentum and interest being lost in the game is all.

Sparrow has been effectively made unwelcome in Apache lands...Not cast out, but certainly not loved...Due to her mother's participation in the Raven Cult. Worked as an Indian Scout for the Confederates and possibly for some bounty hunters. Northern Utah Territory isn't Apache country, but its southern end fringes on Apache and Navajo territory, and the Navajo are relatively Apache friendly as the Apache fight some of their battles for them. Sparrow could easily be tied to the party due to a vision (one nice thing about visions, they can be pretty damned arbitrary! If Raven said 'Find such and such a bunch of whites and help them, well...There you go!) She does not have Kemosabe, hates sleeping in town, drums at odd hours of the night and early morning, and her English is poor. The neighbors will love her. Honest.

Edit: Tweaked her possessions a little, on reflection. Still very much a work in progress! Need to hammer on her background, her fear, etc.
