    S: 6 (since I hit gym I got a little above average)
    P: 4 (near-sighted)
    E: 7 (I'm pretty tough, I never get sick and I have good reserves)
    C: 4 (I'm not a people's person)
    I: 7 (I study physics, but I'm no genius)
    A: 7 (Probably too much, but I couldn't fit those points anywhere else and I think it's not too far off)
    L: 5 (Average, I guess)

    Traits:
    Fast Metabolism (I'm a beanpole, I can eat all day and not gain a gram),
    Good Natured (lover, not a fighter).
    Tags:
    Science (again, I study physics),
    Energy Weapons (got a job as a research assistant, working with lasers all day),

    /edit: Edited for Fallout 2 amount of points and traits, switched trait 'Gifted' for 'Good Natured'.

    I was being accurate, see my intelligence is rather low, not to mention my pissy endurance, and shitty strength. I lie not... :cry:

    ST: 7 (compared to some small framed people I can probably lift them by an arm and throw them several feet away)
    PE: 6 (my hearing mostly, sight not 100% sharp but decent)
    EN: 5 (resistant to damage and disease, but I get tired easily so it lowers it down)
    CH: 7 (wether I want it or not most people I meet seem to automatically like me)
    IN: 8 (most people think they're smart, yet the smartest you are the more aware you are of your own stupidity)
    AG: 4 (big but slow)
    LK: 4 (on certain occasions life's a bitch and seems to take a giant shit on me)

    Traits: Bruiser (in a way already reflected on the stats, but don't do the exact in game maths); Chem resistant (from alcohol to coffee to most medicines, same effects as in-game description.

    Tags: Small Guns (been in the military and currently law enforcement); Speech (I'm seriously considering becoming a lawyer because of my skill on this); Science (some fields, not an expert on a particular discipline, could be a sort of a mix with repair also)

    Lol now I have to go in detail and redo mine. lol

    S:7 (I don't want to be cocky or anything. I do box and wrestle so I think this is fairly accurate)
    P:5 (I say I'm fairly average with this. I have good hearing and sight but I doubt I'm above average)
    E:4 (I can take a few hits but I get sick around 2 times a year. so 4 is pretty accurate.)
    C:3 (Whether I like it or not, people generally dislike me. haha)
    I:6 (I think I'm fairly intelligent. I love to learn. But I'm not a genius.
    A:4 (I'm slow. I can throw a quick punch but ask me to out run someone and I'm fucked. lawl)
    L:4 (I've never won a game of chance)

    Tagged Skills: Unarmed (been boxing/ wrestling for 2 years. No pro but I'd consider it a main skill of mine.)
    Small guns (I don't know how to fire a LAW and probably never will. But I'm a decent shot with a rifle)
    Outdoorsman (I can't think of anything else. So I chose this. I've been around the outdoors since I was a kid.

    Traits: Heavy Handed, Trigger Discipline.


    I didn't do this based on how many points you get in games.

    Strength - 7
    Perception - 5
    Endurance - 8
    Charisma - 2
    Intelligence - 10
    Agility - 4
    Luck - 1

    Traits: Small Frame, Good Natured.

    Tags: Science, First Aid.

    I'm pretty much an ugly nerd, thus the low charisma and the high intelligence. I'm a chemist, so science seems to be the first tagged skill. I have awful luck, last week I stepped into shit in a really weird way, I seem to did it with the sides of the foot, really strange.
    I'm a shorty, just 158cm tall. I'm slow as hell, I even talk way to slow, so the low agility.
    I'm also a really kind person, I actually compensate my low charisma that way, I've got a lot of friends thanks to that, so good natured.

    Ahh, this thread again. Always a welcome exercise in self-interest.

    S-1 (15 years of chronic illness and malnutrition)
    P-5
    E-2 (See "Strength." Would be "1" if not for long years of building up a tolerance to pain/overexertion.)
    C-7 (People say it's too easy to like me. There's no tangible reason, but empirical evidence has borne it out time and again. I don't bank on it, but my personality's often been all that's kept me afloat.)
    I-7 (Just an avid reader with an interest in learning and too much free time.)
    A-2
    L-3

    Traits: Good Natured, Night Person

    Tagged: Speech (F3 variant-- Magically managing to meet with success while still sounding like a doofus), Sneak, Barter

    (I know I didn't use all 40 SPECIAL points, but somehow I doubt I'm the Player Character of this reality).

    I'm dittoing this one, but swapping some Luck for Endurance, despite my relatively unfit physique I am quite patient, and I can walk for hours on end. I'd take some further luck points and add to P and I, but leave A as it is, I am very good with tiny things, but I can be a bit clumsy with bigger things.
    I would probably delegate yet a luck point to somewhere else, simply cus I tend to hit "murphy's law" moments quite often :I

    S - 6 (I've managed to hold my own in scuffles)

    P - 5 (Not much to say here)

    E - 6 (I take pain relatively well, although needles, needles.......)

    C - 6 (I have the ability to make good speeches and convince others of my opinion, or I'm just really good at bullshitting in some cases. Impromptu Forensics helped with that.)

    I - 8 (I'm not in college, and I've done terribly in math, but I ardently believe I've done poorly out of laziness. I have also taught myself all the words I know today. Reading helped expand my vocabulary and comprehension skills exponentially, and I don't regret a single hour of it.)

    A - 4 (I'm Santa-fucking-Claus, get over it.)

    L - 5 (I've had a combination of shitty and good luck throughout most of my life. I'm also not gonna deny that I've had a string of bad luck these past few months.)

    Tag:

    - Science (I have a passion for programming, and I thoroughly enjoy working with mathematics when applied in an interesting field)

    - Repair (Give me a few hours to screw around with something and I'll find out as much as I can in as little time as possible. On other occasions you get a hulking wreck of a device.)

    - Outdoorsman (I enjoy nature a lot. I've hiked and climbed with plenty of energy to spare, although these days Santa has gotten a bit lazy.....and wider....XD)

    S-4
    P-6
    E-4
    C-8
    I-7
    A-8
    L-6

    Traits:
    Small Frame (I am rather short, even for a woman--5"2).

    I'm not very strong, really...I think a bit below average, hence the 4. I think I'm pretty perceptive, and tend to notice things, so I rated myself slightly above average there. For endurance, same as strength...I don't take pain very well at all.

    My charisma is 8 not because I feel overly good at speaking, but because (I'm not meaning to sound like a braggart), I've been told I am good looking, and have had quite a few guys flirt with me. So, I scored myself high here.

    I gave myself a 7 for intelligence because my College GPA so far is 3.7, and that's with hard classes like microbiology, and Anatomy&physiology 1 and 2. Plus, I think I am pretty smart overall...that said, I don't deserve an 8 or higher, because it doesn't come naturally. I have to study hard to keep that high GPA.

    Agility is an 8 for me because while I am a bit short, I find I can move fast and easily. I have good balance, and would consider myself agile.


    Luck is SLIGHTLY above average--I won't be winning the lottery any time soon, but I've had good things happen to me, and have had some pretty good luck in the past.

    S-6. Scored above average in the tests before military service (although I later succeeded in my task to get an exemption warrant).
    P-8. Always on a quest to find anything out of the ordinary (and typically comment on it).
    E-3. Couch potato, but quite pain-resistant...hence the high figure.
    C-5. I've been told I'm likeable... at least as soon people get to know me - which takes time and effort.
    I-9. Smart and lazy. Throw any IQ-test you'd like upon me and I always get good results... if I bother.
    A-2. You won't see me do a somersault soon.
    L-1. Luck has nothing to do with it. I'm just careful and think things through. That's why I'm alive and in good vigor today.

    Traits:
    Night Person - Yesss... nocturnal creature I am.
    Finesse - Wait for the perfect moment and then fire off a killer one-liner to end the argument... kind of.

    Avatar:
    "Long-haired dude", in lack of long-haired bearded viking dude.

    Tag skills:
    Science - Computer technician... science and sci-fi nerd...
    Chem resistant - Hey, I'm Scandinavian AND hardrocker, what did you expect?
    Sneak - I just love to stalk and scare my GF's cats!

    At first i thought people were overestimating a little.

    (Don't get me wrong this one of the most civil forums i have seen with the exception of the fallout POS section but it had it coming.)

    But when i saw real life special at Gamespot i gotta say
    either gamespot is full of muscular athletic geniuses with super visions or else people just think way too much of them selfes.

    S-7 6'2" 210 and work in construction
    P-7 My eyes are really good. -1pt for work related hearing loss
    E-3 I smoke. I never do cardio.
    C-8 Face to face, I can get almost anyone to like me. On the internet... not so much
    I-5 High School educated autodidact. Terrible at math. Slow to learn things I'm not interested in because of ADD.
    A-8 The stat i'm most proud of. I'm a big dude but have impeccable balance/spatial awareness/and good reflexes. Also ambidexterous.
    L-7 I'm irish. The one time I gambled at a casino I played roulette and hit the numbers like 8 times winning 400 dollars in about 10 minutes.

    Finesse- I'm a smooth operator
    Good Natured- trust others to a fault; would rather be known as nice than a tough ass

    Repair- because of my job
    Outdoorsman -I hunt a lot. Basic hunting course is mostly wilderness survival.
    Small Guns- I hunt a lot.
