First off, welcome to RPGWW! Great to see you here, and great to see you tackling PS.
You've got a great start here, and I'm assuming Sage brought you over? (Saw the USMC note in your profile.) He's a good source for setting stuff, and failing that message Nekogami or me. As a side-note, please place more paragraph breaks in your post, particularly the history section. It makes it very hard to read a great hulking block of text, and aside from my
ease of reading, paragraph breaks are a literary tool like any other, and where/when you use them gives you control over the pace at which the reader absorbs what you're saying, along with which things he/she will group together.
I'll leave you in Amanda's capable hands for the individual character stuff for the most part, but feel free to message me any which way you need to if you need anything else.
Aside from what Amanda's told you (all good stuff), I'd suggest taking a look at the Philsys Skill List.
Weapons are not straight COU, as you have noted here.
As the page I linked indicates:
* ALL melee weapon skills are <Cou/Agi/Str>, unless DEX is being substituted for STR.
* Bows are now <COU/DEX/STR>, crossbows are <STR/DEX/DEX>, and guns are <COU/DEX/DEX>.
* ALL [k] skills are <Wis>, which does NOT need to be noted on the sheet.
* ALL magic skills are <Int/Wis/Mag>.
The difference in skill attributes between what's listed and what's on your sheet may be cause for you to re-evaluate some of your stats, but you're not obligated to do so by any means. I've just always found that looking at what I'm getting for the numbers makes it easier for me to make the cost-benefit judgments. For example, stealth is <Agi/Agi/Dex>, which means that your character may actually be a little better at it than you're giving him credit for by using a new set of attributes for the skill. Just the kind of thing that bears looking at.
Edit: Now that I'm looking at my post, I think I see the problem. If you're going to post things in brackets, sometimes you need to disable html in the post or else it starts autocorrecting things that it thinks
