Character Creation

Summer one-shot:

  • 60 pips in abilities
  • 30 pips in skills
  • 12 pips in special
  • 25 pips in resistance
  • No more than 6 points from disadvantages
  • An adv/spab/dis total no less than -6
  • Body points equal to a physique roll plus 25
  • You get an extra 6 pips in abilities if you add an image of your character.
  • You get an extra 10 pips in skills if you send me at least a paragraph describing your character’s past.
  • You get an extra 5 pips in resistance if you provide a clear character motivation. (Ex: greed, desire for knowledge, thirst for fame, etc.)
  • You get an extra 5 character points if you create a character page for yourself on the wiki.
  • You get an extra fate point if you provide enough world building that I feel the need to add a new page to the wiki.

Here’s a free PDF of the d6 Adventure manual. Use it for looking up specifics on skills and advantages/disadvantages, but I reserve the right to disagree with how something is explained in the book if it does not fit well with the campaign setting.

We’ll need to work together on any advantages or disadvantages taken. The following are simply examples. Feel free to suggest alternatives.
