Having got my head around the character a bit more, if it's OK I'll change her Motivation to: Responsibility: Protect people and the Earth.

Complications are Neo's domain (I'm his accountant of sorts). But I don't see why not...

Damn, totally overlooked her, sorry! I like simple builds so I do not see a problem there :)

I was waiting for her to be finished to check the math - cursory glance looked good

I was just wondering if I was in the ballpark for what's expected. I didn't pay attention to prior versions of this story.

I'm also hoping for suggestions. While I still have a few points to spare, am I overlooking something that should be obvious? I'll probably spend the remaining points on deception so she can fasttalk her way out of a situation where she runs into an unexpected obstacle.

Oh, and which point total should I be using 6/120,7/105,8/90 as in the top of the first post of 6/135,7/120,8/105 as in the bottom of the first post?

For point range, use the latter. And having someone who's more of an actual " agent" would fit very well.

Oh, then I've got a bunch of points to spend. I'll put some work into how see moved from cat burglar to gov't agent. Still going to keep her insubstantial. She can only use it for movement because it requires concentration. I like that she suddenly gained a superpower but has no idea where it came from or who or what she has merged with.

Totally cool. Ordinary people can gain powers in the Merged Universe without having to have merged with anyone/anything because the laws of physics, biology etc. have undergone a major overhaul :)

I'll check the math on this one too Neo.

So five characters for Chapter 2... that sounds doable !
Looking forward to your background plan b

I forgot about Bright, honestly saw him a little rougher around the edges but I dig it.

Yes, well A Shadowrun-verse.

Just a double check is it all skills 3 per pp, including combat?

I assumed combat skills were 1/2. So I'm curious about the answer too.
