So I was planing on being the groups SAW gunner and demo guy. The load out seems to much.
Wondering if someone else wants to pack a SAW, I am going to switch over to an M4 and work out a switch of feats.

I would rather be the demo then the heavy member.

A thought, is weapon specialization open to everyone with weapon focus?

Cool character sheet is done.

Gray, I don't think that a SAW is too difficult to combine with demo, but i could be wrong.

Demo is a single skill, maybe with a craft. Then throw on some grenades and a grenade launcher...hmmm, no underbarrel grenade launcher as that would be the go too for me.

But do what you want :D The demo guy likely enjoys grenades anyway.

Any particular reason why the M4 as opposed to one of the other weapons?

Does that change your archtypes?

Nah, it wonít change anything in my build except for where I place my weapon focus.

Itís mostly a encumbrance issue. I just need to lower the weight of my primary weapon, sense my secondary is the demo.
I like the idea of packing a 320 and a few 40 mike mikes. If we go with some future tech, I could pack an eye in the sky style camera. That is deployed via the undermount.

A mini-drone deployed by gl is definitely something you could get, though you will also need a tablet or dedicated device to control it.

When it comes to carrying capacity, Tarrakhash has already uncovered the Mesh Vest. I'm also thinking that a serious load-distributing backpack might increase carrying capacity to an additional +2 Str, at the cost of -2 AC and armor check penalty. Basically a pack that is good for hiking, but which you would want to drop before going into a fight.

Also, dependent on the terrain a sled or something we can pull can also help cross country.

Of course a humvee or jeep is even better....

Say can someone drive?

Well I see we both high on survival.

Did you change your skills much with the rule changes that the GM made?

I can always switch to drive...but then again I just remembered. I get an extra skill or hit point per level and an extra skill for being human.

So I could pick up drive if needed.

But maybe we should wait on the other soldiers?

So, what are the general..."archetypes" and such we've got on the team already? I've got a certain idea and I want to make sure I can make it fit.

Soldier/Engineer - demo dude
Infiltrator/Engineer - Sniper/Scout dude with sabotage skills

So plenty of open spots!

Posted my sheet in my description.
I figure you all should know my abilities as we have to work as a team.

Sounds good I'll post mine up tonight. Quick question for the GM are we doing languages pathfinder style (1per point of Int bonus) or d20 modern (none but your native)

Just a heads up that you probably won't see a lot of me for the next few days. I got the flu a few days back, and if hopefully that hopefully clears up, I'll be gone to a Boardgame Convention over the weekend.

Soooo...

I was thinking, could our eye-protection be an advanced form of google glass.
The goggles would work in sync with the camera grenades and a FFI tag on the US agents.

The cam. would be shot from the M320 and when it gets to apex of its flight it actives. The canister will open and the drone start to hover. The drone will maintain its altitude and rotate to north. The camera will rely the live images to the goggles. The image will be transparent with a superimposed thermal images that outline the enemy.

EDIT: Maybe even it could also put a ďblipĒ over our guys so we know where the team is.


Maybe then the leader could pass on this bonuses to the group, sense itís line of sight...
Just spitballing here.

I mean, I don't have a problem with that. Kinda depends on how much near-future tech we want to throw in there. Microphone bullets, radio-tracking bullets, active camouflage and so on could also be neat, if that is a level of tech we are comfortable with.

So, do we stick to stuff that you might actually, theoretically, see on the battlefield today. Or do we go further. Do we go all the way to Metal Gear where we can just throw in anything that seems cool?

Meh, I'm easy with base Modern D20 but if we go more sci fi that would be fine but I'd prefer something structured...I'm sure there are sci-fi pathfinder upgrades that's not Starfinder :D

There is D20 Future, which also has discrete tech levels. However, D20 Future is space opera by default rather than hard scifi, so their first tech level after the information age has items that are a bit more scifi than what I think we want. Laser rifles, jet packs, human-level AI in humanoid robots.

So while some of the D20 Future gear might make good additions, I don't think we can use it straight.

Yeah, future would work well, just let us know what kind of theme you are looking for and we can pick out what we fits the campaign.

The information age stuff looks pretty much at a level that Exile was looking to get to. Although the base weapon damage and armor stuff hasn't changed...lol, so it's mostly just the descriptions and the odd computer add on.

This has happened in like 4 games I'm in. I think the GM might have actually died in one of them, she just dropped off the face of the earth abruptly.
