4. OPTIMISING

Characters normally start the game with eight Moxie points and six clones, but you

can sacrifice some of either to make your character better, or at least less bad.

Players can boost their characters’ just-created abilities in two ways:

• They can spend up to 5 Moxie points to raise their skills, at one Moxie point

per skill point.

• They can burn up to 5 clones to raise their stats, at one clone per stat point

Spending Moxie at this stage permanently reduces the character’s maximum

Moxie – we call this process ‘stiff upper liposuction’. Each Moxie point spent is

worth one skill point. You can spend Moxie to raise any skill any amount, including

negative ones, as long as you don’t spend more than 5 Moxie points in total or

raise a skill above 5. Cross out the relevant number of Moxie point boxes from the

character sheet.

Burning clones to raise stats works the same way: players can trade one or more

of their character’s unused clones for stats points, in a one-for-one exchange.

Players can’t raise a stat above 3 and they can’t burn more than five clones in

total. If they ask why they can’t burn six clones before the game starts then they

may be too stupid to play this game.

19

When a player burns a clone, they have to make a note on their character sheet how

each clone met their demise. Make something up. Give the character a bit of history.

You should also do this if you have any clones die during the course of the game.

You can’t raise an attribute to higher than 3 using clone-derived points. It is

theoretically possible to have an attribute of 4 but you have to do a lot of groundwork

during the Skills phase, because you have to choose four skills in the same attribute-
group without the jerk on your right hitting you with a negative for one of them.

There’s more about Moxie and why spending points now may be a bad idea on

page XX.

I'll burn 3 Moxie to get my Guns up to +2 and 2 clones will have horrible industrial accidents to get my Brains up to 3, and another clone overcome with the shame of being a clone hangs himself with a fan cord to bump my Violence up to 2.

Going to burn three clones on Chutzpah.

Lily-1 died in an industrial accident after claiming she could repair the machinery while it was still in operation. Lily-2 died in an accident involving improper handling of dangerous substances for R&D. Lily-3 died in a crossfire between terrorists and other troubleshooters.

She has no experience in engineering, chemistry, or weaponry (except for the anomalous case of her intense interest in explosives.) Lily obtaining those previous positions has everything to do with her penchant for lying and exaggerating about her own abilities. While she's rarely ever helpful, she definitely makes it seem like she is.

Round 5 of creation will be carried out following Round 6, just as logic says it should.

these are everyones adjectives, the player after you chooses one of yours to become the opposite.

The flipper chooses which adjective to flip. The flippee is welcome to try bribery,

as long as they do it with game-assets: they can offer anything listed on their

character sheet, including equipment, Moxie points, clones, mutant powers and

secret society memberships, if they happen to have anything so traitorous.
This

does mean that a character can start the game with two mutant powers, two secret

society allegiances, up to eleven clones, or one point of Moxie, though we really

do not recommend that. Threats of vileness or violence are not allowed, nor are

offers of real-world assets, favours or favourite dice.

*Seven

I need to take time hopefully this weekend to reread the GM manual, since it's been awhile, then we can see about setting up a first date to play.

That's cool.

I was just curious if any of these other treasonous bastards were mutants or members of secret societies.

Hey guys, sorry for no updates. This was originally a weekend I was going to see about targeting to play but I have a wake for my best friend's father, so I didn't suggest it this week. I'll try to look at my schedule to see what Sundays work in the coming weeks, and in the meantime if you guys wanna say which ones you are/aren't available we can try to find a date.

My weekends are free thru July but I start my MA proper in mid-August so that's likely the end of my playable window.
