Game Stats: The New Ghostbusters

This is post number 19 in the series “31 Days of Ghostbusters,” a celebration of the franchise’s return to the big screen.

I've been itching to do this since before the movie came out, and now that I've seen it, I can! Here's my take on how the team from Ghostbusters (2016) would be represented in the Ghostbusters RPG.

Erin Gilbert, Ph.D

Muscles2Endure Slime5
Cool2Practice Lecture5

Goal: Professional Validation

Abigail Yates, Ph.D

Muscles3Hold On6
Moves2Swing Proton Glove5

Goal: Serving Humanity

Jillian Holtzmann

Brains6Mad Scientist9
Muscles2Haul Heavy Tech5
Moves2Dual Wield Proton Sidearms5

Goal: Soulless Science

Patricia Tolan

Brains3History of New York6
Cool3Pretend This Isn't Happening6

Goal: Friendship

Kevin Beckman

Brains1Remember Own Name4
Muscles4Fill Out T-Shirt7
Moves3Ride Motorcycle6
Cool4Pose For Photograph7

Goal: Fame

  1. I had trouble deciding on Erin and Abby's Brains Talents, because both are particle physicists yet both are also experts at parapsychology. So I assigned the two skills to the two women semi-randomly.
  2. Erin’s Goal of Professional Validation isn’t one in the game.
  3. Patty’s Goal of Friendship also isn’t one in the game.

Are there any changes you'd make to these stats?
