Character Creation Rules
Note: These rules will make no sense to you unless you have read at least the character creation chapter of Strands of Fate. We will also be using the alternate Campaign Power Level chart found in Strands of Power, which I also have.
- Campaign Power Level: Hero (Refresh 6; 25 Ability points, max of 3 in any ability; 6 Advantage points with a max of 2 spent on any one Advantage, Expert and Heroic Advantages only, subject to the below modifications. Characters will also start with 2 free Expert Advantages.)
- Tech Level: 4 (modern as of 2011-2012 tech)
- Character Guidelines: The group as a whole will have to choose a faction (more on these after the last prelude story), then create their characters using the above guidelines. Each character must have at least one element in their backstory linking them to both the faction that the group choose. Furthermore, each character must have at least two elements in their backstory linking them to two (or all, if three or fewers players are in the group) other characters in the group. Finally, the group must have a coherent reason to be working together. Any or all of the above mandatory background items can be represented by Aspects, but this is not necessary.
