An idea that me and one of my players came up with yesterday evening before
the game; what is the most powerful character you can create with 0 Building
Points. Here's my efforts, I know there are people on this list who can do
better :)>

Flaws
Cursed Karma -6
Police Record -6
Cranial Bomb -6
Borrowed Time -6
Serious Amnesia -5 (Total 29 BP)

Race: Troll (10BP)

Stats
B 6 (2BP)
Q 1 (4BP)
S 5 (2BP)
I 1 (4BP)
C 1 (4BP)
W 1 (2BP)
Total (18BP)

Resources - 500¥ (-5BP)
Cavailer Deptuty
10 Heavy Pistol Bullets
Secure Vest
Pair Of Jeans
Steel Pipe

Skills
Pistols (Cavalier Deputy) 2 (4) (3BP)
Clubs (Steel Pipe) 2 (4) (3BP)

Can do 500 crunches in 5 minutes. Has never witnessed birth. Can bench
press 424 lb. Has never written poetry. Uses Stairmaster for 60 minutes
every night. Has never had to run to save his life. Self improvement is
masturbation. Self destruction might just be the answer.

Dammit, forgot; every skill level over 1 costs an extra BP, so this is going
to have to fall to 1 (3).

<ROTFLMAO!!!!>

This guy's an unlucky, deathly ill, sociopathic, shut-in troll who
doesn't remember why the cops are after him or who put the bomb in
his head!

I think I've gamed with this player... :P

I always thought that it wasn't possible to have more than 6 points
difference between the value of Edges and Flaws. Isn't there another 6
point Flaw that we can choose to fully munch out? <grin>

Don't Trolls get +5(+1) Body, +4 Strength, -2 Intelligence, -2 Charisma, and
-1 Quickness? That'd make it more like:

B 6(7) (2BP)
Q 1 (4BP)
S 5 (2BP)
I 1 (6BP)
C 1 (6BP)
W 1 (2BP)
Total (22BP)

When I read this, I thought that is was a character description... LOL

The idea of 0BP characters is very humorous, BTW :-).

Its reccomended, but not a hard and fast rule.

Yeah, but that would make him blind of quadropliegic. The flaws I used were
the only ones that made a vaguely playable non-decker or rigger (and hes
never going to be able to afford a deck or car with 500¥) :)>

Yeah, that occoured to me about 10 minutes after I'd sent the first
correction. So I just hoped that no one would notice. I think we'd
probably be better off making him an Ork; they're cheaper and you have fewer
minuses to deal with.

Tomorow will be the most beautiful day of Raymond K Hesselís life. His
breakfast will taste better than any meal you or I have ever tasted.
