This is why I waited so long before creating the OOC thread. In order for it to work we need to have one post from each player (at least) in the first page. Not a whole new conversation.

Since I won't be replying in the OOC thread, talk about your character here OnePostWonder

I'm almost done my sheet. Tom, do you want a copy first or do you want me to just post it in the OOC thread?

Tom the Fanboy wrote:Perception checks were made official in the Ultimate Edition but they had been referenced in sourcebooks for years. The method for calculating your base Perception bonus is fun.

Take your IQ.
Go to the ME chart for your save vs Psionics bonus.
The bonus your IQ score would gain is your Perception bonus.

Perception Check, how people noticed things before Spot.


So with an IQ of 16 and an ME of 12, I would get a bonus of 0, right?
I have +1 from Exceptional Sense of Balance and Direction and a +2 because I'm a German Shepherd Breed Dog Boy. Does that make my Perception a 19?

I feel dumb because I can't figure this out on my own. :(

How did you manage to get a 16? If you roll a 1-15 you keep the roll, but if you roll a 16, you'd add a D6, so the minimum there would be 17... technically, it's impossible to end up with a 16 as far as I can tell. :-\

I rolled a 14 and since German Shepherd breed Dog Boys get a +1d6 to IQ I rolled that and got a 2. That got me a 16. I wasn't pleased. So close to a bonus stat! ARRGH!

Perception gets a bonus rather than a base score of its own.
You only have a +1 to Perception.

Don't worry, I'll sort things out.

I suggest we all start puting the characters onto the sheets in the OOC thread. Just go to my first post and hit quote. Then you can edit out all my writing around the character sheet and start typing your stuff in the blanks.

So which set of stats did you want me to use, man? I didn't see that you had rolled stats for me so I rolled on that site and got some damn impressive numbers. I'll go with whichever you prefer.

Wait...what about the +2 for breed? Now I'm totally confused.

I tried to edit out all the stuff around the sheet and type in my stuff...it came out a mess. I'll post it so you can see what I mean.

*EDIT* I'll be damned...it worked...mostly.

I forgot about the breed bonus to perception. I thought that was the plus 1.

I'll uh, take time on my lunch to go over the numbers and then clarify.


Punstar. Go ahead and use your stats.

Sorry dude, I thought you were directing that to Tom. :(

Extraordinary PE: Increase PE to 20 + 1d6 (It's your dump stat! LOL)
Take note of bonuses to Magic, Poison and Coma.
You have a natural MDC of 2d4x10+20.

Revised Heroes Unlimited has the PE bonus as different, but it's the MDC I needed. Thanks man. And Tom, no worries. I figured rl had gotten you in it's clutches. ;)

Gah! Choked on my roll! :o :cry:

Aww come on One post Wonder, this is my first time playing any PnP RPGs, try to get your hands on some of the books (if you don't have one), ask tons of questions, and have some fun ^_^
