Funny, Mongoose is very much like this fellow. No chance of oversterss- I
kept the bioware down to+4, used priority b for atributes and all my allergy
(to keep will high- love that combat pool and magic resistance).
Mongose is not quite as fast
(speed freeak should have reaction 18, From my figuring), and isn't an
athelete(no running skill), but still covers ground real fast (btw, I
calculate average 100m for
speed freak at 3 sec, more or less. by same method, mongoose takes 4.)
Then again, mongoose fits his namesake- sneaky, tough, and deadly, with a nasty
taste for theft and grudge matches. Oh, and he carries kamakazie (can't get any of
the other fun drugs or FoF stuff). Haven't used it yet, but my Gm's jaw
dropped when he saw it at the bottom of the list of stuff I carried on my last
raid. :^)
