You took Usda to the next level. This is my Minotaur Sammie. I'd hate to see what yours would do to Usda!

I've never really seen the point of second-hand alphaware.  Used gets a 1.2 multiplier, and alpha gets a 0.8 multiplier.  So you get 0.96 of what you would get by simply buying normal, basic cyberware, which costs the same.  The miniscule savings in Essence don't seem worth the things that your GM can have come up for used 'ware.

Other than that, decent character, good at his intended role.  At 400 points, a concept like this would probably have to be bare bones, but at 500 points, you get a character with a more "organic" feel.

Thanks - that's a good point, and I adjusted himt o correct it.

Food for thought...  You may want to increase your Willpower and Edge, possibly by lowering your charisma or strength.


In our game I'm currently playing a troll.  He has 3 Willpower and 2 Edge.  Mages and critter powers have nearly killed him in each of our last three sessions.  (Our mage's 6 hits for counterspelling was the only reason he survived one encounter.)

Had also considered going Ork instead of Minotaur - The advantage would be a freeing up some BPs for skills,stats,maybe another PQ and being a better shot vs. not being able to soak as much damage.

And you aren't be a Freak (with Distinctive Style)! Just an Orc with some racial discrimination problems... ;)

Minotaurs cost 45 points and get 90 points in Attribute bonuses, a net gain of 45 (although they lose that human point of Edge, too).  An ork costs 20 points and gets 50 points in Attribute bonuses, a net gain of 30.  So switching to ork will make your character less conspicuous, yes, but it won't "free up" any points (just the opposite, in fact) - unless  you also take lower Attributes in some areas.

Fair enough (It seemed that way when I was playing with the spreadsheet) - it comes down to a question of which is better for Fire Support: Slightly better at hitting the target (9 vs 7 Agility) or being able to take damage ( 8 body vs 10 body)

This is actually similar to a build that I came up with a while ago; although that one was only 400 Pts. so obviously this one is better. : )
