    he burns like 20 of them already in Tintin in america alone

    and that stunt with the eclipse is worth at least 10 fate points

    No, he just gets an unique special ability that allows him to treat burned Fate Points as spent Fate Points, and his spent Fate Points refresh at the end of every scene.

    Well, consider how many individual messes he gets into in TinTin in America. Maybe he just had several sessions, and used his Demeanor with really good timing?

    What Demeanor would he even have?

    Lower fate points. Increase toughness. Do you realize how much of a beating Tintin takes?
    >> Anonymous 09/16/11(Fri)16:41 No.16318499
    And do you realize how many beatings he TAKES? The kid is more peak human than Batman. He can hold his breath for like ten minutes. When he falls into caves in Tibet or on the fucking moon he just gets up again and then climbs out. It's not just about fights.

    I see his player spending fate points frivolously for every vaguely important action in a session though. The rare occasions he actually messes up or gets hurt are because the player forgot to keep track of fate points that day.
    >> Anonymous 09/16/11(Fri)16:46 No.16318549
    Though honestly his ability to emerge from every fight without a scratch owes more to his ridiculous luck and skill than standing there and taking punches. He does still need to be able to get knocked out in one pistol whipping when the plot demands it after all (IE when he runs out of fate points)

    So just how big of a heretek is Calculus?

    He builds sonic weaponry, breeds new species of alien plant life, constructs non-STC spacecraft and submersibles, casually wears xenos jewelry when presented with the opportunity... oh and he reads warp currents by dowsing despite not having any psychic power, which implies sorcery.

    Red Sea Sharks he evades several torpedoes in a rust bucket with a crew of untrained freed prisoners. Shooting Star he commands the Aurora pretty damned well. Red Rackham's treasure... well that's Chester's ship really...

    The fact that he gets plastered and nearly kills Tintin all the time (especially in Crab with the Golden Claws and his other early appearances) is entirely unrelated to his skills as a captain. And being piss drunk constantly and getting manipulated by his first mate before he met Tintin doesn't count.

    He also has little lines here and there all over the series that demonstrate his knowledge. Like he recognizes any kind of ship they happen to be on even if it's barely larger than a canoe.

    Why are we not stating characters.


    Come on, rest of the crew needs to be done. Let's start with Haddock.

    Career; Roge Trader, obviously. What are his primary attributes? Toughness for the alcohol consumption, Fellowship because people somehow still love him, Intelligence is his hidden stat. He's not all that great with guns or swords, but he's drunk strong, so I feel like that should be reflected in his stats.

    Considering Tintin's pally relationship with xenos scum the image name in >>16308692 gives a not so-subtle double meaning to the text and picture. Always playing with fire when exploring the Imperium our Tintin. He's clever with his words.

    As to the psyker thing, his luck is better represented by gratuitous fate points Tintin in Tibet WAS Herge's crazy, introspective book. During its writing Remi experienced strange dreams of open white spaces and felt deeply distressed. To quote Numa Sadoul's Interviews with Herge:

    >"I remember one of them where I was in a kind of tower made up of a series of ramps. Dead leaves were falling and covered everything. At a particular moment, in an immaculately white alcove a white skeleton appeared that tried to catch me. And then instantly everything around me became white."
