The 1st Doctor: The Character Sheet

If you've been following my posts that turn the original seasons of Doctor Who into role-playing sessions, then you know what has to come next: Billy's left us his character sheet before taking his final bow. (Click to enlarge for legibility.)Stuff that didn't fit on the sheet (Billy kept it on the back)...

Boffin (Major)
Charming (Minor)
Gadget (Minor) - Time Lord Ring (the ring can activate TARDIS systems when the power is down and adds a +2 bonus to attempts at Hypnosis; the gadget also holds 1 Story Point, which was once used to unfuse the TARDIS lock using a particular sky's light after a visit from the Meddling Monk)
Hypnosis (Minor)
Indomitable (Major)
Keen Senses (Major)
Psychic Training (Minor)
Resourceful Pockets (Minor) - Sample items include a torch, small binoculars, a handkerchief and a piece of string
Time Traveler (Major) - The Doctor is familiar with the technology of all Tech Levels, unless in cases where the GM has decided some technology is strange even to him
Tough (Minor) - Though frail-looking, the Doctor was able to resist his
Voice of Authority (Minor)

Adversary (Major) - Daleks, The Meddling Monk
Argumentative (Minor)
Eccentric/Cantankerousness (Minor) - The Doctor is quite volatile and may turn on his own companions
Eccentric/Grandfatherliness (Minor) - The Doctor bonds easily with teenage girls who remind him of Susan
Eccentric/Vanity (Minor) - The Doctor is uncommonly vulnerable to flattery, and will also take credit for others' work
Faulty Heart (Major)
Forgetful (Minor) - This also manifests in his speech patterns, making him tongue-tied or get names wrong
Insatiable Curiosity (Minor)
Weakness (Minor) - -2 penalty to Athletics when he doesn't have his walking stick in situations where it would be useful

Blunt (Special Bad)
Time Lord - The first Doctor does not get the Traits Feel the Turn of the Universe or Vortex, making this Trait cost only 3 Story Points

Losing access to the TARDIS was a big one at first, the Doctor even going so far as to sabotage his own ship for points (the group came to call it Fluid Linking). Over the course of three seasons, his favored trick became using his Forgetful Trait to get himself into hot water, refusing to acknowledge what his player could obviously see.

Hey Pat! Here the sheet. It's all you get to build your own version of the Doctor!
