I am looking to start involvement in Active Duty. So, i went and started looking over the character sheets, when i suddenly thought "you know, it may not make sense to have Gears as a level 1". I'm not trying to overreach, and it's easily explainable via story if people would rather i start the same, but i was wondering if it would be alright to advance my Gears character a few levels. If so, all i'd need would be a modified stat point pool to reflect the level changes, and maybe a short equipment discussion.
I'm also thinking of having a Lev Shatterman character, but i'm less concerned about him being level-bumped. Any assistance with this would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
