Character Creation

Use in conjunction with the Character Sheet.

You start with the starting stats of 3 in each stat. 3 is Below Average for a human and 4 is average. You get 6 points to spend on these and you may spend no more than 4 on a given statistic. You may also subtract from one to gain more points. Each statistic directly affects any skills or abilities relating to it.

No matter what, no skill or stat may be above 9!

After this, you may do the same as the stats but with skills. You get a total of five skill points.

Finally, for your four trait spots you may select a single trait for each from the following list.
