  • A player chooses their character's starting age, within reason.
  • BASIC CHARACTERISTICS
    The five basic characteristics are Strength, Endurance, Agility, Intelligence, and Charisma. Use this dice link five times to roll a set of basic characteristics. The player chooses which roll goes to which characteristic.
    Rolling for Characteristic
  • POWERS
    Each character begins with five power rolls.
      There are two options for these rolls
    1. a table is chosen and the indicated dice link is used, the player CHOOSES which of the two dice is the tens digit, and receives the indicated power from the table
      Powers
      Devices
      Magic/Psionic Items
      Magic/Psionics
      Skills
    2. a table is chosen, and the player then trades a second power roll to choose a power (Mutant Power and Psionics aren't permitted) from the table
    Once the first four rolls have been utilized, the player may choose to gain up to two more rolls by adding a rolled weakness from the "WEAKNESSES" table for each new roll.
    Weaknesses
     It is possible to choose the table and the power from the table three times by submitting to a single rolled weakness. Submitting to a rolled weakness permits a character to begin with six random powers from tables desired by the player.

House Rules, Conflict Resolution
    various rules
    • Automatic Weapons
    • When using an automatic weapon, declare the number of rounds to use before firing.
    • Automatic weapons get +1 to hit per round fired, with an additional +5 on the first round only.
    • The first round gets +2 damage, every round subtracts the number of rounds from the damage done with results of 0 or less indicating the round missed and may have went past the target to strike another target.
    • i.e. Using an automatic energy rifle, firing a five round burst. Five rolls to hit, the first roll to hit is +10 and the next four rolls are at +5. If the first round hits, it rolls 1d12 - 3 for damage. Any round after the first that hits rolls 1d12 - 5 for damage. Any round that rolls less than one damage may travel beyond the target and strike a secondary target.
