Thanks for having me and running this game!

Character Name: Alejandro Carlos
SFS Number (including character number): 123584-701
Day job: True Savior of Tasch (see below)
Other important stuff I may need to know: My slotted boons are shown at the top of my profile, but I can list them if necessary. I'll also be purchasing a couple toolkits before the mission briefing, Trapsmith's Tools (20 credits, L bulk) and Navigator’s Tools (20 credits, L Bulk).

True Savior of Tasch:
☐ ☐ ☐ ☐ ☐ (Slotless; Limited Use) True Savior of Tasch: You helped ensure a measure of prosperity for the Akitonian town of Tasch by enticing AbadarCorp to set up a shipping outpost in the town. You can forgo making a day job roll to instead devote time to assist with the growth of Tasch. Any time you opt to do so, check a box on this boon and make a note on the Chronicle sheet associated with that scenario, indicating you partook in this endeavor. Once all five boxes on this boon are marked, you receive 500 UPB’s as recompense from the people of Tasch for helping to develop their now-thriving town. These UPB’s cannot be converted to credits and must be used to craft some form of equipment.

-BOONS-
Faction: Second Seekers Champion, Improved

In addition, once per adventure, anytime you succeed at a
Life Science or Physical Science skill check that is written into
the adventure, you recover 1 Resolve Point, up to your Resolve
Point total.

Ally: Efficient Administrator

You hire an administrator to help vet and assist certain
allies recruited by your fellow party members. While this boon is
slotted, all other PCs’ Ally boons gain an insight bonus to their
skill checks equal to your current Reputation Tier(+2 in Dr. Morvius' case) with the Second Seekers faction. If the ally performs a combat role, then he instead gains an insight bonus to his ability DCs, attack rolls, and saving throws equal to half your Reputation Tier with the Second Seekers.

Promotional: shirt re-roll (yes, I have a few official shirts!).

So, everyone should bring an ally if you have one. My boon will give them +1 or +2 to many types of rolls.


Looks like we are solidly in the low tier. I'm gonna give everyone some time (~12 hrs) to figure out what they wanna buy and then we can get going!

Don't need to buy anything except the climbing gear, but here are my boons:

The only ally boons I have only do something in other scenarios, if I slot a random one of those, like High society influence from 1-5 which does nothing, it will do something just because of your boon. If so I'm slotting that and have impressed all 5.

Pretty sure it only applies if the Ally boon would normally be making rolls, Data

Agreed, probably referencing the hireling boons purchased with fame or other boons that provide a mechanical benefit to a roll. Alejandro does not have any of those yet.

Honestly... I really should get a hireling and start upgrading it as high as my Rep allows. I don't have any of the skills trained on Set 4 nor a current Ally Boon worth keeping slotted instead.

GM Vamp, I'm sorry, but I just realised I forgot to add the +5 from Budding Media Celebrity to my Day Job roll.

I also bought climbing gear.

Could I please request a couple of amendments? My apologies, as they are my fault for not explaining better (or forgetting) at the outset:

Slotless: Digital Presence (Tier 2 □□)

I'd initially forgotten about the Budding Media Celebrity boon when I rolled the 12, so should have been 17.

Digital Presence (SFS Guide 2.0)
"...you earn 1 additional Fame and 1 additional Reputation with the Dataphiles faction..."

Digital Presence (Slotless Boon) Full Description:
You work to propagate a thriving digital community.

Prerequisites: Dataphiles Tier 1
Cost: 0 Fame (see below)
Benefit: If you complete a scenario that you played online, such as by using a virtual tabletop or a play-by-post format, you earn 1 additional Fame and 1 additional Reputation with the Dataphiles faction (regardless of whether you have the Dataphiles Champion Faction boon slotted for that scenario).
Special: You can benefit from this boon only a number of times equal to your current Reputation Tier with the Dataphiles faction (maximum four total times at Reputation Tier 4). Each time you fulfill the requirements of this boon, mark it on your Chronicle sheet along with the associated Reputation Tier. Have the GM sign beside this notation.

Threefold Conspiracy Maps & Slides

Hello everyone! Before Vamp closes this out, I wanted to let all of you know that you should watch for a recruitment thread soon (probably in a few days) for my Threefold Conspiracy game. I will be offering chronicle sheets for participation.

It looks like our GM, VampByDay, might be participating as a player! I'll also be considering 4 or 5 additional applications to play. I enjoyed playing with all of you, and would encourage you to apply.

Dr. Creed Morvius, aka GM Quirk, AKA Alan

Sorry to be a pain, but should that be +3 fame as well as reputation?

Quick and dirty updated again. I thought I was being smart by making a 'master copy' that had all of the XP, Fame, and bottom stuff figured out, then modded each one with the extra personal information so I didn't have to do a complete sheet every single time. Whoops

Ditto, I spent some time yesterday putting the bones together on my concept. Hopefully will get finished today.


Threefold Conspiracy Maps & Slides

If you two would let me know here who your submissions are. My feeling is that your excellent posting history in this game that we just finished is worthy of extra points as I consider who to pick. Obviously no guarantees, but it helps to know someone will put some effort into making 5-6 posts a week for a long term.

You may also feel free to PM me.


Didn't put in an application as I know there will be a bunch of periods where I will be unable to post for an extended time coming up in the next couple of months (residential training in remote areas).
