Kuikku: Background

Post by Kuikku » Sat Aug 19, 2017 2:36 pm

Background
As a child he was rescued from some Coalition forces by a Cyber Knight in the Tomorrow Legion. Shortly after he found an old Earth book about Samurai and his mind has painted that rescue with a broad brush. Was instantly enamored with the concept and has decided to follow his limited understanding of how they operate. Becoming a Cyber Knight himself and joining the Tomorrow Legion was a natural result of this infatuation.

When he is able to focus he spends that time reading up on Earth history and how the samurai influenced its progression. He has also learned some Japanese and often uses it in conversation, though not always correctly. He will also toss out a (bad) haiku when the mood strikes him. His Psi-Sword manifests as a Kodachi (“Small Big Sword” just under a meter in blade length), or a Katana and Wakizashi when split.

Looking good.

Improved psi-sword with the IF, just curious how this happened? Normally cyber-knights get two free combat edges. Iconic edges are not combat edges.

Could you also give us a break down on skill pts?

Attributes: Agility d8, Smarts d6, Spirit d8, Strength d6, Vigor d6

Skills:

Psionics d8 (IF, 2)
Fighting d8 (3)
Shooting d6 (2)
Healing d6 +2 (HJ)
Notice d8 (4)
Persuasion d8 +2 (3)
Intimidation d8 +2 (3)
KN (History) d4 (1)
Language (Japanese) d6 (2)

Yeah, I come up with 20 Skill points. Note that both Notice and Psionics require 2 points to get from d6 to d8, since they are tied to Smarts. So if you bring them down to d6s, that would leave you with 16 points--almost where you need to be (15). My advice would actually be to bring both persuasion and Intimidation down to d6s, and then take Taunt at d4; this leaves you a better path to Strong-Willed later on, which will make you utterly terrifying--+4 to Intimidate is pretty major. But that's just an opinion.

Oops. For some reason I had Improved Psi-Sword in my mind as a combat not iconic. In checking that out noticed I don't have the fighting for Charge either. (Initial build did not have Japanese and those points went to Fighting instead.) Both fixed now by replacing with Combat Sense and Improved Combat Sense.

Skills:
Psionics: d6 IF, one point to d8
Fighting d8 IF, zero points
Shooting d6, two points
Healing d6 +2 (HJ and +2 from Healer Edge) zero points
Notice d8, three points
Persuasion d8 +2, three points (+2 from HJ)
Intimidation d8 +2, three points (+2 from HJ)
KN (History) d4, one point
Language (Japanese) d6, two points
1+0+2+0+3+3+3+1+2=15

(At least I got that right :P)

I think you are almost there. Raising your notice and psionics which are smarts base above the d6 of your smarts takes 2 points, or a whole advance.

Not that it really matters to me, bu part of the cyber knight code is loyalty. Having the minor hindrance on top of it is fine, I would just think about what does it means to your character to have both. How would they "Stack" , and how would your loyal hindrance negatively impact your cyberknight code?

Perhaps a family member or group enemy he has conflicted loyalties with?

He cannot help it commit evil, but he feels driven to help him in other affairs. In battle he cannot bring himself to finish the fiend as he is a family member?

Missed that. Psionics is tied to Smarts, bummer. I need the Notice d8 for the Combat Sense edges so I guess my Psionics drops to d6.

As for the second loyal my thought was that the Code of Honor instilled a loyalty to other Cyber-Knights. The "extra" is my loyalty to my team, I will do all I can to ensure their safety. If this violates the other tenants of the oath there may be some conflict. If I ever need to face down another Cyber-Knight (perhaps even a fallen) I will have some major difficulties in that fight.

Adventure Reward: HJ roll
Training: 7 - Part of your character’s extensive training including full understanding of a particular occupation or area of focus. You may give her one Professional Edge, ignoring requirements, subject to the GM’s approval.
Taking: MAJOR PSIONIC
A greater control of mind, body, and spirit combined with the overwhelming power available on Rifts Earth means this hero can do much more with her inner strength. Major Psionics double their base ISP, and they gain +10 ISP (instead of the usual +5) from the Power Points Edge.

Major Psionics may also:
- Spend 2 ISP when rolling their Psionics skill to gain a +1 to the roll, or 4 ISP for +2.
- Spend 1 ISP to double the Range of a power, or 2 ISP to multiply the base range × 10. This ability does not affect
powers that have Range of Self or Touch.

The two effects can be combined, but the decision to spend ISP for either must be made before the roll. While on a ley line, all above bonuses are doubled in effect.
