Creating Your Character

Printer-friendly version

Character creation follows guideline from the “Careers in Star Law” by Alex Curylo from Dragon Magazine #91. You may wish to review that article and print an Alpha Dawn character sheet prior to doing this adventure. The following is the character creation check list.

  1. Choose a name and species
  2. Roll and arrange ability scores as per the Alpha Dawn rules transferring up to 10 points between an ability pair and apply racial modifier. To have entered Star Law, 5 of your ability scores must have been 5 points higher than the racial averages (given in the table below) and two of which must be INT & LOG.

    Species

    STR/STA

    DEX/RS

    INT/LOG

    PER/LDR

    Human

    45/45

    45/45

    45/45

    Dralasite

    50/50

    40/40

    45/45

    45/45

    Vrusk

    40/40

    50/50

    45/45

    45/45

    Yazirian

    35/35

    50/50

    50/50

    45/45

    If your ability scores do not meet this requirement then redo the process or simply use the racial average and add 5 points to five individual scores of which INT & LOG must be part of the five.

    After all that add 5 points to one ability score in the STR/STA pair and 5 points to one ability score in the DEX/RS pair as per the rigorous academy training you have received.

  3. Choose a PSA
  4. If your PSA is Technological or Biosocial choose one 5th level skill and one 3rd level skill from that PSA and a 2nd level ranged weapon skill (usually beam) and a 1st level non ranged weapon skill (usually melee). If your PSA is Military choose two 5th level weapons skills plus 2nd level Martial Arts and 1st level Demolitions.
  5. Choose one more bonus 1st level skill from any PSA.
  6. Compute your punching score, initiative modifier, and length of time your character can hold his breathe (STA/5)

Add a skein suite to the character sheet as your only item of equipment
