Character Creation
Below you will find the rules for character creation.  Please write your Tags in yellow so they can easily be seen.  I do not have a standard character sheet.  As long as I can navigate yours i am fine with that. Rpol does not have one here yet.

Step 1: Create your Concept

Choose your MYTHOS, the legend awakened within your character. It can be a person, being, item, or location from any story, mythology, legend, folklore, fairytale, literary work, urban legend, religious tale, concept, or real-world event.  For example your Mythos could be Dracula, Mr. Hyde, Alexander the Great, Robin Hood, The Flaming Sword from the Garden of Eden, Hades or Noah's Flood.

Choose your LOGOS, your character’s everyday persona and life. It can be any modern-day walk of life.

Develop your concept by speculating about:
WHY DID THIS MYTHOS MANIFEST THROUGH YOUR CHARACTER?
WHAT SECRET PAIN DOES YOUR CHARACTER CARRY?

Step 2: Choose Themes
Your character has four themes, with at least one Mythos theme and at least one Logos themes. Mythos themes represent legendary powers. Logos themes represent mundane abilities, qualities, resources, and allies.

Choose your initial level of awareness:
• Touched: 1 Mythos theme, 3 Logos themes

Choose Mythos themes:
• Adaptation (versatility) (page 82)
• Bastion (defense) (page 86)
• Divination (information) (page 90)
• Expression (offense or ability to alter reality) (page 94)
• Mobility (movement) (page 98)
• Relic (powerful item) (page 102)
• Subversion (stealth or deceit) (page 106)
Also Conjuration, Destiny, Enclave and Familiar located on page 12 of the Shadows and Showdowns Expansion book.

Choose Logos themes:
• Defining Event (in your past) (page 110)
• Defining Relationship (page 114)
• Mission (page 118)
• Personality (page 122)
• Possessions (page 126)
• Routine (page 130)
• Training (page 134)
