Character Creation Example

Our three players today are Alfie, Sarah, and Joseph. After establishing the tone for the game, the three of them swap their ideas around.

Alfie wants to play someone important. Someone who, when he talks, people will listen to him. He’s drawn to the Delusians, maybe as an Arbiter. Sarah thinks that great, but doesn’t think he should be the only one with authority. She asks if she can be the captain of the ship, and with agreement from the other two she’s thinking of her ship. Joseph wants to play something he doesn’t do very often, so fighters and tanks are out of the question – maybe something even a bit quirky and fun. He starts browsing for ideas, and comes across the Capycarymen. It’s love at first sight.

Together they decide that Alfie’s Delusian was arbitrating a meeting between Joseph’s Capycaryman and another group with financial interests in the area. It turned out to be a trap by space pirates who wanted to hold both the Capycaryman and Delusian hostage. The meeting went down on the Space Station Sarah’s Human is from, and she agrees to pilot them out of danger in exchange for some serious cash. She “borrows” a ship and away they went. Since Sarah is playing a human from a planet (or in this case, station) not previously statted up, she gets to create at least two Alien Culture aspects that are generally true for the station’s population.
