RPG Me – BSG

So I was going through my old (and new) RPG’s this weekend and got thinking…what would I look like as an RPG character?

So I will start trying to describe myself as an RPG character.  Not perfect, even a bit idealised.

Here is my first attempt:  RockyMountainNavy as a character in Battlestar Galactica: Role Playing Game.

  • Veteran Character
  • Homeworld: Aquaria (I am not the cosmopolitan Caprica or militaristic Picon)
  • Profession: Fleet Intelligence Officer
  • Attributes
    • Strength – d6 (Average, but see my complications)
    • Agility – d6
    • Vitality – d8
    • Alertness – d10
    • Intelligence – d10
    • Willpower – d8
  • Derived Attributes
    • Life Points – 16
    • Initiative – d6+d10
    • Endurance – 16
    • Resistance – 16
  • Assets
    • Advanced Education – d4
    • Photographic Memory – d2
    • Sixth Sense – d6
  • Complications
    • Dull Senses (Eyesight) – d2 (Correctable with glasses)
    • Overweight – d2 (Good food from Mrs. RMN!)
    • Wise-Ass – d4 (My mouth sometimes is faster than my brain, especially amongst stupid people)
  • Skills
    • Discipline – d6
    • Leadership – d8
    • Guns – d6
    • Influence – d6
    • Knowledge – d6
    • History – d12
    • Culture – d8
    • Law – d8
    • Perception – d6
    • Investigation – d8
    • Deduction – d10
    • Intuition – d8
    • Search – d8
    • Planetary Vehicles – d6
    • Cars – d8
    • Survival – d2
    • Technical Engineering – d6

This guy is a staff officer through and through.  Much better at a desk than in the field.  His education and knowledge mix well with his sixth sense and ability to quickly perceive events for what they really are. This officer was nearing the end of his career when the Cylons attacked.  His older experience (he joined up as the last of the First Cylon War veterans were retiring) was all but ignored for most of his career but is now in demand as the fleet struggles to cope with Cylons which few have ever experienced before.
