[Steam] Questions

I just tried Steamband once more, and made it beyond the starting screen. Yay. I've got a few questions...

1) I'm playing as british medium. Is there a better race for medium?
2) The "[Something] Will" skills don't influence the medium spells, right?
3) ...is there an *easy* way to get rid of these <cenzored> <cenzored> <cenzored> <cenzored> <cenzored> <cenzored> <cenzored> <cenzored> <cenzored> <cenzored> <cenzored> Capuchine Monkeys?
4) Can everyone use Steamware?
5) In "15 Pistol bullets (2d11|0) (+0, +0) (+24/120)", what does the last one (+24/120) mean?

Thanks in advance.

1) Yes.
2) Correct. They influence red and green book magic, not class powers.
3) heh.
4) Damage per bullet, and damage per round (clip). The first number is average damage per bullet, and the second number is how much damage you will do in a round (which coinciadentally is (approx) how long it takes to empty a whole clip.)

Oooh, that is so subjective. But...

In terms of the best match I would say a ghost is your best bet ( high ego, which is the mediums prime stat ). You'll have to be careful about taking damage cause that combo will give you low wp/hp though.

That being said you really can match up any race to any role and have it be playable. For example, you could play an asiatic medium with melee being strictly martial arts, if you even want a melee type character.

Oh yeah, every race but mechanized ones can use steamware...
