Okay, I downloaded the character program and it looks rather nice. It's been ages since I played this game, though.
Can someone give me an idea of what are weak, typical, and exceptional attributes?
(Is it still like 2, 4, 6 and are there minimums and maximums fixed for starting characters?)
(Reedit after previous confusion.) I take it the 400 points are the sum of all the stuff on the bottom left?
I don't see where to buy lifestyles on the form. -- Scratch that, I found it buried under Equipment.
I'll probably make some sort of merc. I never did learn the mechanics for much else, but shooters often seem to have something to do, even if it is just playing lookout or pack mule. (Snorts in advance at obligatory incoming pony jokes.)
And just because it seems a little wacko to make a female elf merc in this game system, I'm tempted... Not a tank. More a flexible, light infantry type. Perhaps a sniper, if any of those rifles are even available?
