http://www.crystalkeep.com/7thsea/index.php Rules books, second column, top. They have all the information you need (and then some). Check through our Character Creation page for the list of what is available and what isn't.

and Welcome!

Character Mach two What do I need to fix, other than points in skills at this point? I wasn't sure how much to put into each skill etc, also as to how much gold I get per month, if any.

Couple of things I noticed....
1. You have both a Virtue and a Hubris. You can only have one of those.
2. I noticed you have a Sidhe Dagger. Remember it's less powerful (-1k0) when away from Avalon (which you will be for the sum total of the campaign). I say this not because I don't want you to take it, but because it's a secondary weapon, and it's 'special-ness' is really not as applicable where you'll be.
3. Along with that, you mentioned on the second page that you're left-handed. But you didn't take the advantage.
4. Finally in the advantages I see you're a member of the merchant's guild. Since you're the very first person in the campaign to take this, I'm curious what (if anything) you were planning on doing with it? (not that I am trying to dissuade you, I just want to have something ready if you were planning on using it in the PA).
5. For some reason your character sheet has Mental and Physical Knacks in addition to Civil and Martial. You know I can mix and match them right? So, Wits + Fencing to determine the quality of a blade, or Resolve + Fencing to continuing fighting after a significant time, in addition to Finesse + Fencing to hit...
6. You have Dragon Dreams as a background. I'm going to assume you're not just trying to troll me (which would force me to take my only copy of Cathay, Jewel of the East, and beat you into unconsciousness with it) I will point out that HoA has a list of do's and don'ts. The big one is stay away from CJE. (if you need more details, check out the Character Creation page on the main site http://www.guildofsanmarcos.net/cccc.html)

Other than that, looks good so far.

Megan unless you are playing super powered pirate it is mark 2 not mach 2.

But now that I bring up superheroes I would like offer to take a beat up old copy of Hero 4, that I'm borrowing from someone who won't know, and offer to beat Mark into unconsciousness with it in exchange for 5 Guilder. I will then take his only copy of Cathay, Jewel of the East. Thereby saving you. If you wait patiently someone will come along and instruct you on how he is wrong in stating your character.

Raise your brawn to 3. as a boxer, you need to both take and deal damage and brawn 3 will be a huge difference maker.

I would build it using Athlete, Pugilism, Sailor, Dirty fighting, knife (for your other tie ins), and maybe wrestling for martial skills.

civil skills I would consider would include Merchant as listed (possibly expanding into advanced stuff here), streetwise, and sailor with plans to buy the haggling knack as well. (best merchant knack ever)

advantages for a boxer could include: Large, toughness, combat reflexes, lightning reflexes, firm grip (if you are getting wrestling with finnegan anyhow may as well play it up). Able drinker would work well with finnegan.
I don't mind growing old... but I hate growing up.

I didn't realize Dragon dreams would be an issue, and Ill look over the other stuff and post it again once I do.
Merchant Guild was planning on setting up a pub.
I wasn't sure on the dagger was going to ask when I saw you next

Well for one thing you don't have your 'sword' school (Finnigan) and it's knacks listed. That might be helpful.

Points-wise, I'm coming up with 98 so you still have a bunch

My next suggestion would be, you're a bit light in the civil knacks. Remember getting new skills in this game is expensive after character creation. Best bet is to grab everything you think you might need right now.

If all else fails, there's always advanced knacks...

If I should happen to be a GM at a table with Niela, she will sooner or later find herself attempting unskilled Etiquette challenges.

She does not have to act the Courtier; but having some of knowlege in those areas might be helpful. Especially if she does not want to cultivate a reputation for being uncouth.

There may be other situations in which she would be better off rolling dice which explode...

Just assume it's a regular Knife (1K2) and call it good (although if you're planning on throwing it a lot, you might consider it a smaller knife (1k1) and get +5 to Throw). I'll leave the choice up to you.
