We are completely new to RT and intended to play a few sessions to get an idea. It turns out to be fun. Instead of starting a new campaign, we are continuing the current one.
I got fellowship 23 AND -10 in formal situations... Hindsight, it was a bad idea. We are doing a lot of social and formal situations, and that's actually what I prefer too, but we seemed to need a combat guy
How to improve though? I don't have to be THE most social around, I just want to be useful in social gatherings and with investigating information trails and the like.
Boosting fellowship with XP is obvious, though I'm not sure if I can do my role well enough if I pay too much XP on fellowship. What other options do I have? what kind of Gear?
I intend to do a lot of favors for people, so they might be more understanding towards my unsocial way of talking
I could use some help with any way to get this guy fit in, be it (in part) through gear, or RP advice.
The other players are a missionary, navigator, explorator. The rogue trader is an NPC who is never around. He gave us a ship and directs us through missions. So far these missions have shown that he is a lazy guy and we are the ones to clean up his mess.
