power at his disposal - wealth, resources, flying interdimensional castle of doom,
Endless Legions Of Identical Goons, heavy weapons, gadget collection, zoo full of
Betelgeusian Bandersnatch, etc, infinitum, ad nauseum.
His personal 1-on-1 TR is mostly irrelevant IMO. If you can actually get TO him, he'll
be a pushover no matter what level he is.
Note that I only say 8 EP because that's how high the book goes.
He's worth 10 or 12 EP in any game I run - or 24 EP total to be divided between 3+
characters if they want to all take him as sort of a group Nemesis.

Standard description for 4 EP is "directly comparable in power, takes frequent interest
in bothering the character"
6 EP is "more powerful and able, with significant resources"
If you're just using her as is out of the book, at a comparable TR to the PC, then it's a
If you factor in the resources she has to work with, thanks to the Baron, and suitably
and logically upgrade her from stock with that in mind, she's a 6.
> Bulkington (working for the Baron)Since the PC is a close-combat character, Bulkington is VERY dangerous to her.
I'd call him a flat 6, when at equivalent TR ratings, or even one step down.

Unless The Scott sees fit to shoot a copy my way to tide me over till my CD does
actually show up.

Evil mystics like Acheron would fit the bill for the Baron's flunkies. Or would Morgan
Sharpe be more in line?
