Health d30 is not out of the fight? I would not want to risk being in close though with it. So sacrificing Luck is not necessary if you don't want to.

You wanna roll Maya to attack and then move away?

Since IC wise has already been written out...to be clear, i didn't sack a luck rung and that puts Maya at D30 health.

After some time of playing, it is time to award some XP for improving skills. I reviewed everyone’s Character Posts to make sure they matched my master document and added a few things missing.

I have gone through the still unknown skills that will get triggered with memories to make sure everyone is getting the same amount of things and the group picks up some skills they don’t have already that will be more applicable in the future (even if that is some time away). Everyone (except Maya) has 2 skills/Superpowers yet to be revealed; Maya has only one left. I have them picked out except for Maya’s Superpower and one skill for Argo.

Beside the forgotten skills, everyone can spend XP to improve existing Traits and Skills. You each have 8 points to spend, 2 of them can be used on Traits if you want. Every XP put towards a skill is marked with an “*” until it reaches the cost to improve the rung by one. Most of the Characters (except Rufus and Miranda) already have some XP spent that way.

Just list here what you spent XP on.
A reminder: a new skill that requires training costs 1XP to start it at d30, 3XP to get to d20. An untrained skill would already be at d30, only needing 2XP to reach d20.

Sorry guys, i am going to have to on a bit of haitus. Work is slamming me right before I got out on paternity leave, and my wife is expecting any day now. I will try to resume a normal posting schedule once the baby is born and things have leveled out. I may squeeze a post in here or there...but we will see.

I hope to resume in January after LM and I get back from Taiwan. We don't really have much time right now. Maybe Argo will be back on the boards and caught up by then as well.

Ahh, it is possible you all could have gotten back more memories by now. Do you all even remember the forgotten background information?
I do have recorded the new skills that will be provided later. Most have no application IC right now, and make more sense to come back when you finally make it off planet.

I think i was lazy with Maya's background. She was to be a dimensional hopping/time traveller/siren (from Borderlands) type of character....So her memories were all jumbled to begin with.

I am not sure anyone really worked up much backgrounds at all, because we decided to go for quick start instead of waiting around for full character development.

I think that was purposeful. You weren't lazy, Herzog. Since the premise was that we woke without our memories, PMiller wanted us to come up with only the bare bones of backgrounds, so things could be slowly revealed as we went along. So Argo's bare-bones premise was 'search and rescue dog', just like yours was 'dimensional traveler'. I think the most specific background is Trever's, with his brother dying.
