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
Goal: Professional Validation
Abigail Yates, Ph.D
|Moves||2||Swing Proton Glove||5|
Goal: Serving Humanity
|Muscles||2||Haul Heavy Tech||5|
|Moves||2||Dual Wield Proton Sidearms||5|
Goal: Soulless Science
|Brains||3||History of New York||6|
|Cool||3||Pretend This Isn’t Happening||6|
|Brains||1||Remember Own Name||4|
|Muscles||4||Fill Out T-Shirt||7|
|Cool||4||Pose For Photograph||7|
- 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.
- Erin’s Goal of Professional Validation isn’t one in the game.
- Patty’s Goal of Friendship also isn’t one in the game.
