Character Creation

To create a character for Nuclear Beasts, you'll have to go through several steps. These are listed below in the simplest order, but you should be able to do them in any order you desire.

  1. Choose a breed for your character. This is their species. There are a bunch to choose from, from three different generations. You should take a good look at their stats and limitations before making up your mind. In particular, the first generation of Beasts didn't have hands!
  2. Assign your attributes. Note that the breed that you chose may adjust or restrict your stats.
  3. Pick your starting Edge(s). An Edge is a special ability or gift that modifies your character in a positive way.
  4. If you want some additional Edges, you'll have to take some matching Flaws to compensate. Flaws are like Edges but they make your character worse in some fashion.
  5. Pick one or more Drives if you want them... a drive is a special trait that motivates your character but can also hamper them. Drives are optional. You are limited to (at most) one major drive and up to three minor ones, but you don't have to take any of them at all if you don't want to.
  6. Buy your starting skills. Note that the breed you chose will give you certain skills for free, but you can increase those too.
  7. Pick a name, description, gender and otherwise fill in your character's background. Posted by Kiz at April 24, 2004 10:10 PM
