Starting edges, take Arcane Background: Miracles and Profession to bump spirit to d12+1. Hero's journey, MARS characters can roll on any table, even if it doesn't make sense. Spend two rolls on Psionics, trade so you can spend a Benny to use spirit in place of a roll. With advancements, pick up Adept so you can Boost Traits yourself as a free action. Pick up Elan. (Psionics table ability technically modifies a trait roll, so it works.) Assuming you can get boost traits off, you can now roll minimum 1d12+4 eight times a session, to do anything you want. Love it.
Buddy helped with the concept. Assumes use of the Fantasy Companion. Otherwise go human, get Expert for the extra +1.
You can't do much, but what you can do is everything.
Ok, so I created an account just to thank Wikrin! I innocently built Benjamin "Bennie" Underhill and passed it on to my DM. What followed was the best face I'd ever gotten out of a DM in headlights. He said, "How the heck did you get 8 bennys?," he knew about luck/great luck, but not so much about all the rest. I'm not even sure he realized how silly it will be when I start Spirit Swapping for trait rolls. Did a little math I can roll a benny every and average of 1/30 mins (as per the normal length of our gaming sessions). Just to make sure I use them and if any of my other games have held evident that's a very doable rate. Oh, and if your worried about ruining the game and what not, that's what we do to each other, we are all habitual min-maxers. Enemies are min-maxed too...
