Well, considering what I see from your sheet, it was sort of to be expected, no?

How far along are you?

He's had a couple of problems with mental attacks, one of which almost got him killed off.

Yep, playing a meathead that didn't realize his limitations does have its limitations. I feel like this last encounter however will have given him the nudge to start figuring that out and putting some points into his mental stats.

Ha, I was indeed thinking it was pretty low ^^

Though to be fair, it's harder to realise how important a bit of Wisdom can be compared to stuff like Dexterity or Endurance since it's "obvious" you're going to need it no matter what.

On the other hand, even with Mental Fortress activated (and I'm sooooo glad I thought to do it...) I got in quite a bit of trouble from a Mentalist, so...

Michael thought about putting points in just based off he description of wisdom alone. But he figured that he wouldn't run into anything that would attack that for a couple missions at least :P

Sorry about lack of posts, I've been pretty ill the last few days. I should be able to start posting again soon.

It's been hard, but I've survived up until now, so focus on getting better first ^^

In the meantime, I had a question for you Jack. I couldn't help but notice that your jumping quest hasn't progressed much. So I was wondering...

Did you know it would likely be easier without the armour?

:D

(Oh and another one: your two skills are E-Grade, not F? Is it a mistake of should I be envious?)

Sorry, they should be F Grade. I always forget which is the lowest grade.

Ha. With one I really had a doubt (who knows what's out there after all!) but with two the typo seemed more likely!

My skills only seem to be gaining progress when it's done in a meaningful way, and the hours are probably only in combat. Like, I can't just jump up and down 100 times.

Ha, yeah... That could make things harder. No jumping everywhere to increase (or get) skills or stats, that's sad.

Well, at least you'll get a movement skill out of it.

Not dead, just don't have a lot of time these days. If it's alright with you guys, I'd like to put a pin in his for now. After my radiation treatment, I should have more time again. However, that won't end for 6 weeks and that starts about a month from now. What do you think?

Damn, I read that wrong and thought it would be six weeks total, not ten.

Oh well... take the time you need!

And I'll try to not have a novel of ideas and plans when you come back :D

I'm several months off at the moment, I don't like reading daily snippets, so I let it all build up then binge.

Ha, damn.

I hoped to have something to talk about and keep things alive!
