Check out the LOAD values for items. That list is a default for what you're carrying rather than what you own (you can still record this). The Heavy Blaster is 2 LOAD (think: about the size of a Bren gun) and the Repair tools are 4 LOAD (large toolbox, perhaps fitted as a backpack for carrying). You've got 8 LOAD in that list, which is definitely in the not-subtle range (this has mechanical effects on a score).MUSCLE
Name: Will Ryle
Look: Scuffed work boots and long-sleeve shirts. Toned, but not overly muscled. He carries himself with a flat affect, alert but unconcerned.
Heritage: Wanderer- Will grew up in an orphanage. Fighting for scraps of food was a daily activity. When he was 16 he was dumped on the streets of Cyrus.
Background: Syndicate - Worked with small gangs, eventually made ties and joined the Cobalt Syndicate working as an enforcer. Most of the job was routine reminding people, some people just need to be reminded harder than others. He had a job talking to someone in front of their kid, unremarkable really, but it stuck with him. A week later he bought his way out of the Syndicate and left the city he grew up in.
Vice/Purveyor: Charity - Will donates a lot of his money and time to organizations that make a difference in the lives of orphans.

Shostakovic Syndicate - Worked with a few of their guys after I left Cobalt. Alright guys, same crap work.
Yazu - The most crooked cop I've ever met. Will sell out anyone for a few creds.
The game has a mechanic where you declare your LOAD before the job starts. As the Job progresses you declare which gear you are carrying as and when it becomes warranted. I think it's assumed that we have access to all this gear on our ship. The LOAD value itself is important as it is an immediate factor in how geared we look on the streets to security personnel.I wrote that with the intention that was my owned gear. Are we not declaring gear as we use it, but declaring it all upfront?
That would be fine. Note if you've got anything dodgy in a public place like the vehicle or hotel.I’m familiar with the rules.
So, would it work, Nobby, if I just changed that section to owned gear and make a new Items section?
