Don't forget the special skill:

"Speaking a melodramatic phrase while putting on or taking off sunglasses" = 7.

To the OP -

If I could see you in the flesh right now, I'd punch you in the face.

No offense.

He probably also has a very good lifestyle. His clothes are always so flashy!

I just had to make a smartass comment. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

Like this one. For once, I would like to see a ghetto dragon. Dressing all in shabby clothes, shoes with holes in them, carrying a bottle of malt liquor wrapped in paper.

But seriously, I really like the idea of a forensic dragon, Horatio Caine or otherwise. A dragon that is so fascinated with humanity that it dwells on the intricacies and psychologies of our criminal behaviors.

I like the build. Although you forgot the intimidation skill.

Personally, I think intimidation should be 'built-in' for Dragons. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

I find Horatio Caine about as intimidating as a wet cloth, but hey, YMMV.

I had to ask, where did you get 325BP for a Western Dragon?

That's easily corrected.

Of course. But they still need the skill to use that.

The Runner's Companion preview PDF that Catalyst put up as an April Fool's Joke. They're surprisingly playable. The only thing that really upsets game balance is their conjuring abilities.

Cheers thanks. It scares me you've tested it though (well, SOUNDS like it (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif) ).

I've tested them as well (how could I resist? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif) ), and tend to agree with hyzmarca about their playability.

I'd like to point out that Horatio Caine never EVER does any science. He stands around at crime scenes supervising (standing over other people's shoulders, telling them how to do their jobs), recounts to suspects their alleged crimes, and drives at Warp speed in his giant expensive gas guzzling SUV. But he NEVER does any science. I wouldn't allow him to take the skill.

I suspected as much about their actual playability, but I run games very rarely, and havent had the chance to do such acid testing myself.

Horatio Caine as a GW Dragon?! Nah, he's an AI -- CarusoBot. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/cyber.gif)

As for a "ghetto" dragon... how about building one around Terence Howard or Ving Rhames or Sam Jackson. Heh heh, "mother-bleeping Elves on a bleeping plane" or quoting Ezekiel 25:17 at the Runners.

I really miss the police issue H2 with the equipment. Also, he needs a contact list! And don't forget that cartel who shot his very short-term wife and sister of a subordinate with his enemies. And that guy from interior investigations.

Also, change Intimidation to Intimidation (+2 with shades).
