36 PB?

Here I was going with 32... :P

EDIT: How are Action Points determined? My rulebook seems to be missing that page and I can't find it in the SRD either  :embarrassed
In case it matters, I'll be playing a Moreau Fast 4/Gunslinger1...

In this campaign, we're starting with half our lifetime AP.
Base Classes gain 5+1/2 level
Advanced Classes gain 6+1/2 level

So I'd have 5+2(level 4 Fast)+6(level 1 Gunslinger)=13 AP?

Not even close!  lol

Each level you get AP.
Fast1 - 5
plus Fast2 - 6
plus Fast3 - 6
plus Fast4 - 7
plus Gunslinger1 - 8
total: 32 (divide by 2, since we're starting with half of our lifetime AP, leaving you with 16)

Man...  Dog won't end up qualifying for ANY Advanced Classes!   :/
I was hoping to put him into Thrasher, but it requires 6 Ranks in Concentration, which can ONLY be achieved by taking a minimum of 3 levels in Tough.  No other way to do it!    :banghead

Could change your occupation to one that gives concentration as a class skill.  That's what I did to get into my Advanced Class.

There are exactly 0 occupations that provide the Concentration skill.

When I get home in four hours I'll dig through all of the non-core books and see if I can find you something.

It's alright, Dog wouldn't have enough skill points to spare anyways.  I'm testing the rat moreau soldier type to see how that turns out, and I might go with it instead.

I'll still look to see if I can find an occupation that gives concentration as a class skill.   :P

Found a couple in Urban Arcana that totally don't fit for the character.  Then again...  Who knew that this wolf-man was a Psychic?  :p

Actually, I was thinking more of out of the D20 past book.  I think there's a sort of 'feral upbringing' profession that gives Concentration IIRC.

Also, just checked Bear Moreau and Enlarged Form mutation.
The biggest I'd get would be 9'6" if I remember correctly that there are 12 inches in a foot :P

9'6" is way more reasonable than what I was thinking.  If you want to do the Bear, that's cool.  you'll still have to duck under door frames, but that's better than not being able to get in buildings period.  If you no longer want to do that, I'm cool with the gunslinger.

Not a problem, remembering obscure things is my speciality.  Glad I could help. :D

Looks good.  Nice to see that we have a melee character in the group now.
