Ben and Polly: The Character Sheets

Two more players leave the game! Say goodbye to Ben and Polly, and please, Michael and Anneke, hand in your sheets for our files. (Click to enlarge for legibility.)Stuff that didn't fit on the sheet (Michael kept it on the back)...

SKILLS
*Ben has the following +2 Expertise bonuses: Swimming (Athletics), Navigation (Knowledge), and Seamanship (Transport), in line with his Navy background.

GOOD TRAITS
Attractive (Minor)
Brave (Minor)
Keen Senses (Minor) - Sight
Run for Your Life! (Minor) - a frequent Trait in the 2nd Doctor era
Technically Adept (Minor)
Tough (Minor)

BAD TRAITS
Argumentative (Minor) - the only time Ben wasn't was when orders came from someone in uniform whose authority he respected
Eccentric/Skeptical (Minor) - Ben doesn't take anything fantastical at face value, distrusting the reality before his eyes
Impulsive (Minor)
Insatiable Curiosity (Minor)

FAVORITE METHOD FOR ACCUMULATING STORY POINTS
Skepticism was one method, making mistakes "on purpose" because the character would just not believe what was happening (that they had moved through time, or that the 2nd Doctor was in fact, the Doctor, for example). Ben also liked to use Cockney turns of phrase which would sometimes cause a misunderstanding the GM could give Story Points for, but this was rare, though amusing.

And the other half of that inseparable duo...
The things Anneke kept on the back of her sheet:

SKILLS
*Polly has a +2 Convince Expertise bonus in Flirting a +2 Craft Expertise bonus in Dancing, and +2 Knowledge Expertise bonus in 1960s trends.

GOOD TRAITS
Attractive (Minor)
Brave (Minor)
Charming (Minor)
Indomitable (Major)
Screamer! (Minor)
Run for Your Life! (Minor)

BAD TRAITS
Eccentric/Flippant (Minor) - Polly has a tendency to not take things seriously, pulling faces in people's backs or spending the night partying
Insatiable Curiosity (Minor)

FAVORITE METHOD FOR ACCUMULATING STORY POINTS
Anneke was intrigued about playing the sexism and budding feminism of the 1960s, so she frequently allowed her character to be given sexist tasks (such as making coffee) for a point or two. When she needed more, she broke down and showed the wet feminine cliché hiding under her assured girl-about-town veneer.
