Marty on the Cusp

It’s been a while since Marty’s Tabard’s last online character sheet update. For the benefit of the GM and other players, here he is on the cusp of fully reaching 7th level. He remains as deadly with a knife as he was before.

+1 ECL “Race”: Cartoonified (Toon) “Pureblood” Human (58 CP)
•Fast Learner/Specialized in Skills: +2 SP/Level (6 CP).
•+4 Intelligence (Normally 24 CP, reduced to 12 CP by world laws).
•+2 to any one attribute (normally 12 CP, reduced to 6 CP by world laws).
•Immunity/Aging (can expect to live almost indefinitely, uncommon / minor / major, 3 CP).
•Grant of Aid: May heal 1d8+5 damage OR 1d3 points of attribute damage OR one negative level once per three levels per day or part thereof, 6 CP), with both Regenerative options (6 CP) and +8 Bonus Uses (12 CP). In Core, this requires several hours per use unless the user spends a magic point.
•Extraordinary Returning (Specialized, Requires being “animated” with standard cel-based or 3D animation tools) (3 CP). Most toons—Marty included—are unaware that they have this ability. They have trouble thinking of themselves as creations. It would take a “mundane” friend thinking, “Hmm, that guy was a lot like a cartoon character. I wonder what happens if we base a cartoon on him?” for anyone to discover it.
•Innate Enchantment: All spells Personal Only: Rubber Fall (resembles Feather Fall, but you have to peel yourself off the ground, 1400 GP), Regenerate Light Wounds (1/Round, up to 20 points/level/day maximum, 1400 GP), Cure Light Wounds (1d8+1 1/level/day as needed, 1400 GP), Immortal Vigor I (+12 + 2x Con Mod HP, 1400 GP), and Void Sheathe (may store a single weapon in “nowhere” and pull it out as needed, half cost due to single weapon restriction, 350 GP). 5950 GP total, 7 CP.
