Partly based-on/in-response-to Lass's ultimate build request, I created this build unarmed sexy/stealthy/somewhat-social martial-artist/commando/demolitions-expertviewtopic.php?p=76114#p76114
Lass thought it was a "slick build" but thought that the modified rad trooper armor would take away from the sex appeal... I thought of a great one liner, about how a woman "going commando" could be really attractive (depending on the woman). But I gave ep 138 a listen this morning and thought I could customize the wraith build to be less commando and more sexy spy. So (reposted from the ultimate build thread)

The character would wear a thinsuit (read as skin tight black cat suit, very black widow) that was "stripped of joint protection" (reduces max dexterity bonus, which this build isn't limited by) has either shadowskin or shadowskin reflec (depending on your budget), a second upgrade I'd recommend one of the following:
*integrated equipment 5 slots
*climbing claws...one of the key advantages is that you gain a claw attack as a beast of your size, i.e. base damage of 1d6 which stacks with martial arts bringing your unarmed damage dice size to 1d12,
*holoshroud (a quick change to look like a completely different person, but a better way to do that is using the holoshroud from force unleash as integrated equipment)
*repulsorlift (get past a pressure sensitive floor)
And of course grab the stuff that costs no upgrade points: vacuum seals 10 hours (0 upgrade slots and let's you wear a helmet with it, optional whether you wear it), helmet package (0 upgrade slots, for when you do wear the helmet). And you want to superior tech it for reinforcing armor (grants DR 2, I think
this should stack with what you get from elite trooper, not 100% sure on that, otherwise get superior fortifying armor, increases Fort bonus by +2). The ref def bonus for a thinsuit is --- which is different than a ref def bonus of 0, the difference is it doesn't cause you to lose your heroic level to reflex defense.
you could get a theed arms s-5 ascension gun with the improved energy cell upgrade, stripped of the stun setting, miniaturized (so you can use it as integrated equipment), tech spec'd to give the dart launcher autofire (10 darts = 1 area attack with paralytic poison coated darts); at least 1 fire knife, tech spec'd to add an upgrade slot with neutronium reinforcement and durasteel bonding, DR+10, double weight, +10 hitpoints, crit on a 19 or 20, deals an extra die of damage (after doubling) on a crit, damage: 2d4 (fire knives ignore the DR of unattended objects); garrote; data dagger coated with paralytic poison; utility belt; security kit (before level 17); lock breaking kit; explosives; etc.
So I was wondering what GM Chris and Dave thought of my build, ironically as dave said in the case, the top 3 stats are Charisma, Int and STR. Thoughts abouthow the climbing claws armor upgrade would intract with martial artsand how reinforced armor would interact with the elite trooper's DR?
