I have a feeling our characters are either going to get along famously or be at each other's throats... or both.

Admittedly I've been wondering if Slink and Skylar would get along, what with Rook (the little bot bird that expels small explosives).

Just finished reading the rest of the characters. I think there will be some interesting dynamics for sure.

Added in a couple more details in the equipment department. Mainly wall and ceiling climbing and a jetpack that doesn't pass safety regulations.

So upon reading characters it seems neither a cyborg/android nor an engineer is original as both have been done already lol

I'm currently thinking about going with a generic "jackass with gun" character or a "space wizard" character


Honestly both are very fun. I would suggest Space Wizard though. We have a lot of gunners and even a lot of other reviewed or need to be reviewed @Mintz , but no one can go wrong with a jedi lol.

I was going for that angle, but it was too much of a headache to wrap my head around so I wrote the character I posted yesterday

Oh that is completely valid lol. I've been a casual fan, with my brother being hardcore into it. I can't keep track of it at times.

Also just realized how late my reply was to that original post. Oops.

A bit of a delay, and I apologize. Mintz knows I was working on this character for a bit, and, while I had intended to go more brutish earlier, art helped with coming up with this.

Of course changes and things are fine. Blah blah blah. Lets get this man in here.

Also, cause I forgot, I have a strong preference for more the robotic Sci-Fi elements. Like Gundam, Transformers, etc. Though I can sit down and enjoy about anything.



Giving him a look-over, nothing seems wrong with Aftershot here! Although he might step on some small rat-like toes with his stealthy demeanor, but beyond that, I don't see much of a problem. If you wanna talk about editing him around in some fashion to avoid it, that's cool, but otherwise...

Welcome aboard! Feel free to get him up into Characters.

Thinking about it, yea. Doing some edits might be nice. I haven't read the sheet entirely until now oops, but it was something that crossed my mind when I was skimming through what positions had been filled when I was finishing up the sheet. Looking at equipment, abilities, etc, I am more than willing to see about changing the skills up slightly, maybe playing more into the gunner/assassin type role if it becomes more of an issue.

Otherwise, Aftershot is moved over as he is.

I'm usually a bit of a stickler about these things. But I don't see it as much of an issue either. Sure they both have invisibility cloaks. But it seems as though Aftershot's is a bit more combat oriented with a short duration but I assume more control. Where as the intent for Slink's is that it has a good duration but has pretty rough switching times which means its quite hard to use in a combat scenario. Plus I highly doubt Aftershot will be crawling around in vents.

So yeah, I think it should be fine from a concept. But will have to wait to see how it plays out

I’m making steady progress in my elaborated backstory, but am making a trip this weekend so delays in my writing are to be expected. I know this is purely extra at this point because I hit the high points on Banshee’s sheet, but I’m having fun with this and figured I’d just make an update.

On the silly side, the more people get approved the more ammo I get in this longform fanfiction I’m crafting for galaxy details /s.

Fair enough. If the man behind the rat is alright with it, then I won't bother.

Thinking about it more, yea. They do have similar things, and some similar weapons, but they function better in different scenarios. As you mentioned, Aftershot can't go through vents, and, while his spinning ninja stars may be able to, the rat is probably better for the position. Cause, while surveillance is good, usually if you go into a vent, its to do some fun sabotage stuff, or pull off a heist. Something I don't really see those stars doing all that well.

My best way of describing the two is like comparing an assassin to a thief. Both good at stealth. Both good at surveillance. But both are better at their own things as well.

You are also correct on the stealth option. While not meant for combat, he can use it for it. Its controllable, but best using it in short bursts or to quickly get under the radar as using it does cut into his own energy supply. Though nice to know how Slink's invisibility can be used. I can definitely see it being much more useful in a variety of situations.

But yea, if it becomes too much of an issue, let me know and I can look at changing some stuff around.

Sorry for the ramblings. I've been thinking about this all day and kinda just word vomited my thought process.

Fun fact though: Depending on how small Slink is, he could actually fit inside Aftershot's vehicle form's cockpit. May not be able to do anything, but its funny lol.

I did look through Aftershot's sheet again though, and there are a couple of things I need to explain better. But those are like a sentence or two here or something.

I love that because of Battletech Er, Warhammer, er… Dune, everyone who’s mentioned shields in any sci fi influence follows the rules of ‘slow things beat shields’.

As my musings advance, I have to come to terms with the fact that the closest comparable suit of armor for Banshee I’ve been able to find is Spartan Mjolnir armor from Halo, meaning that if I ballpark armor weight to intended fantasy of defensive power she’d weigh in at roughly 750-1,000 pounds in her pressure suit when it’s fully kitted and armored. I’ll make note that the bulk of armor can be modularly attached so she’s not casually chilling in the ship in a half ton of ass kicking gear trying to eat dinner or something.
