Ah, no. you don't add the values on an individual table -- a 2nd level solider uses the values  listed for 2nd level, not the sum of levels 1 and 2. So a soldier 2/burglar 1 uses the values on the 2nd line of the soldier table and the 1st line of the burglar table.

Take a level in a different class means you use the skillpoints, class skills and vitality per level listed for that class when determining your benefits for that level. What you gained previously doesn't change.

Your BAB will take a hit, but if you take a level of Burglar yu'll pick up very very sneaky which will give you a minimum acrobatics result of 21

Okay, you're going to have to slow right down and explain the hows and whys (please! (did I mention the very new?))
How do you 'take a level' of another class? And what sort of overall effect does that cause? Does the very very sneaky effect last if I go back to being a soldier?

Thanks.

When you hit career level 3 -- career level being your total levels -- instead of taking the 3rd level of soldier, you take the 1st level of burglar, making you a Soldier 2/Burglar 1. When you reach 4th level and go back to taking levels of Soldier, you're a Soldier 3/Burglar 1.

In order to determine your BAB, saves, Defence, Initiative, Lifestyle and Legend, you just add the numbers in the appropriate rows on the class tables together. Simple as that.

The end result is that you'll be behind the curve of a pure Soldier in terms of when you receive soldier class abilities (but if you're going into an expert class that doesn't matter so much and cross-classing is often the best way of meeting the entry requirements) but you will have a slightly broader range of capability.

And yes, once you take a level in a class, it's yours forever.

You don't have to stay in the one class for the entirity of your character's career; you can always jump into a new base class, and once you hit level five provided you meet all the prerequisites you can take levels in expert classes. Of course your GM might require some narrative reason to justify a fighter learning burglar skills

Doctor Storm (Sue and Johnny's dad) is a black man in this movie.

I kinda dedeuced that from the blink and you'll miss it glimpse of an old guy towards the end of the clip; so it would seem the Four are some kind of volunteer guinea pigs for a military experiment he's in charge if I guess? Seems a shame; with the world poised for the realistic prospect of non-government space flight, it seems a shame the creators of the reboot seem to have stripped that aspect of the story out.

(Yes, I'm guessing they're winding up in the Negative Zone which is pretty much iconically theirs, but still...)

The previous iteration of the FF had a latina playing Sue, so doing it with the other sibling this time is just following precident. But of all the characters they should have raceflipped Reed, showing up Sony (who balked at the idea of testing a black man for the role of Peter Parker) and stealing a march on the MCU (Black Panther with its scientific genius titular character is still something like 2 years away) in the process.

I think Ectogenesis is more an issue of convenience.
The hormone storm of pregnancy has a solid crowd of endorsers as much as detractors, so rather like any normal family the decision to have children has it's external realities to answer to.
Some thoughts on this occur ed to me while bringing the nipper to have lunch at mom:  One reason children are born when they are is so that the wee one and mom survive the wee one's exit.  How long could you keep a fetus in its pod?  You run into trouble with muscle growth and control, eventually, but would it be worth while to extend gestation to have the infant be a bit hardier?

The one inescapable criteria for birth timing is the physical ability to get the little parasite out through the bottom of the pelvis; that's why a baby's skull plates aren't fused, so the head can be squished around that problematically large brain a bit to facilitate the process. Remove that literal bottleneck via artificial womb and extending gestation time shouldn't be a particular problem

Ben isn't the black character, Johnny is.
