Comments: And this is Jamadigni Renuka at the end of play (which would be right around January 24, 2113). Not bad for less than a year on the force, eh? She went from rookie beat cop to Director of the whole shebang! Actually, it wasn’t as easy as all that, but still, never in my wildest dreams did I imagine my character in charge of the force she was serving. I recall thinking “I’d like to see her make Captain, command her own squad, or perhaps teach magical studies to new recruits.” Yeah, you can see how that turned out.
Now, lets talk about what changed:
Her increased Characteristics came about for various reasons. One was simply inflation. She really needed to be faster to be able to keep up with both her fellow PCs and her foes. On the other hand, intensive combat training was stated to be part of the whole team’s regimen, not to mention simple “on the job training” (We ended up in a lot of combats!). The increased Presence came about because Jama (and the rest of the team) really did enter (and survive) the fabled Omega Sector. Why is that important? Ever read or seen The Mist? Played DOOM 3? Seen In The Mouth Of Madness? Omega Sector’s something like that....
Her VPP went up after certain in-game events (as I mentioned before). You can also see the build for her enchanted kris (a wavy-bladed knife carried by almost everyone in Indonesia). I also gave her Mental Defense because, in the words of one PC, “You have a strength of will that shines in you like a sun.”
The Contact and Reputation were given in game by the GM. She also didn’t have to pay for the “Director” Perk, it was assumed. Paulie was “slavishly loyal” to Jama for several reasons. One, she saved him being crushed to death by enveloping in a protective Force Field at just the right moment. And two, in one of those little things that made the campaign fun, Jama (and Nathan Carpenter the paladin) came into a hospital at one point and found the waiting room filled with injured police officers. Since Jama’s kris could cut through anything (it has Penetrating), she cut the locks on some vending machines and with the Nathan’s help started handing out coffee, sodas, and snacks to the injured. Needless to say, the police present never forgot that. Other elements of the Positive Reputation refer to in-game events. I’ll talk more about the Digital Angel under “Spells.”
Many of Jama’s new skills are a result of in game needs. The squad’s leader (a PC) created a list of training objectives, which included things like +2m of Running, the Level with Block and Dodge, Combat Codes, and Teamwork. She learned to read Greek while studying a magical tome (an important plot point). The +2 with All Combat came about after I consolidated a few Combat Skill Levels.
Her Complications have been radically altered. She’s gained some new ones (such as the Hunted/Watched by the Angelus City Council), lost at least one Psychological Complication, and had others re-written. Oh, and remember my comments about Omega Sector? That’s why she has that 0-point Psychological Complication dealing with spiders.
