Character Creation

  1. Characteristics
    Characteristics are the skeleton of your character, describing his physical and mental capabilities, just like ability scores in Dungeons and Dragons. There are nine characteristics, described below.

    • Strength (STR): Physical ability, such as lifting or climbing. Ranges from 3-18.
    • Constitution (CON): Health, vigor, and vitality. Ranges from 3-18.
    • Power (POW): Force of will. Ranges from 3-18.
    • Dexterity (DEX): Nimbleness, flexibility, and reflexes. Ranges from 3-18.
    • Appearance (APP): Physical attractiveness. Ranges from 3-18.
    • Size (SIZ): Physical size, including weight and height. Ranges from 8-18
    • Intelligence (INT): Mental capacity and awareness. Ranges from 8-18
    • Education (EDU): Formal and factual knowledge. Ranges from 6-21.
    • Sanity (SAN): Mental health and stability. Sanity is always equal to POW x5.


  • Characteristic Rolls
    Characteristic rolls reflect abilities or qualities which all humans possess to some degree, such as luck or basic knowledge. There are four such rolls

    • Idea (INT x 5): Represents hunches and the ability to interpret the obvious.
    • Luck (POW x 5): Did you step on the weak floor board?
    • Know (EDU x 5): Reflects your general knowledge of a variety of topics.
    • Damage Bonus: Damage bonuses are applied to melee attacks. To determine damage bonus, add STR and SIZ and then find the result on the specified table included with this handout.


  • Derived Characteristic Points
    These are classic RPG stats, including health, magical capacity, and remaining sanity.

    • Hit Points: Your health. Add your CON and SIZ and then divide by 2, rounding up. These decrease when you take damage.
    • Magic Points: Used to fuel magic, your maximum MP is equal to your POW
    • Sanity Points: Your starting Sanity Points are equal to your SAN. These decrease as you witness horrible things, and increase when you achieve some form of victory or rest.


  • Choose an Occupation
    Occupations consist of 6-8 related skills or areas of interest. There’s a good bit of wiggle room with occupations, and you need not actually be employed or making money from your occupation in order to qualify for it.

  • Skills
    Skills are used for a variety of things, and are increased by spending skill points on them—the higher the skill, the more likely you are to succeed (a skill of 63 has a 63% chance of succeeding, for example). When making your character you get two pools of skills points.

    • Occupation Skill Points: Multiply your EDU by 20 and distribute these points as you like among your occupation’s skills.
    • Personal Interest Skill Points: Multiply your INT by 10 and distribute these points to whatever skills you like.
