(I will now accept bets on how long it will take to see a "What would your Time Lord RPG stats be?" thread, with a jackpot bet on the first person to give themselves a 3 in Striking Appearance.)

Time's up! Using http://myweb.tiscali.co.uk/ianmcdonald/who-rpg/:

Bons
Apparent age: Early 30s (Hopefully not THAT apparent)
Species: Human, Earth
Equipment: Valygar coffee mug (Will be broken if ever run into Mel's head.)

Strength: 3 Cheat Death 2
Control: 3 Ranged Weapon: Darts 1 <-- Just kidding!
Size: 4
Weight: 3
Movement: 3 Driving 1, Running 1, Swimming 1
Knowledge: 4 Computing 1, First Aid 1, Science 1
Determination: 3

Newt had always suspected that people who regularly used the word "community" were using it in a very specific sense that excluded him and everyone he knew.

I would not have dared, but since the llama lleads the way:

.... well too tired to try out all the links. :(  Another time perhaps.

People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.

I think I'm high in Short Attention Span, these days. ("What do you mean, there's no computer app to do this for me?")  And to think I actually managed to knit a Tom Baker-as-the-Doctor scarf once upon a time...

I know, I know. I felt kinda dirty too. But it's so obscure and offbeat that I feel a bit better about it than I would about arguing my CON score based on the last time I had a cold, blah blah blah.

I have no shame.

Okay, maybe a little about the point in Striking Appearance.

Bons just didn't want the ignominy of joining Mel as the only female character in the entire Whoverse lacking at least one point in Striking Appearance.

Now that the infamous Khan pic is no more I could say that it is at least one point.

I dunno. I think Ricardo Montalban as Khan has Striking Appearance in spades over BlueBons. But then, I adore Ricardo Montalban, even more than Tuco and Charles Nelson Reilly and Peter Davison. I may have different standards. :D
