Character creation process

Post by Malus Spinatus »

Hey all!

Another newbie here, super excited to kick off my first C&C game soon.

The character creation process felt a little clunky to me, even as a table-top gamer of almost 30 years. However, I think it will yield really nuanced characters. I am putting together some tools to help my players with character generation.

First, I came up with a few stat arrays that use 42 points, for those who don't want to count beans. I listed the sum of stats, for comparison. Please feel free to edit or expand upon this list, especially with 43 -50 point arrays (for use of gift/burden surplus). Number after equal sign is sum of attributes, sometimes used as an indicator of relative array strength.

5-3-3-3-2-2-2-1-1. =22
5-3-2-2-2-2-2-2-2. =22
4-4-4-2-2-2-1-1-1. =21
4-4-3-2-2-2-2-2-1. =22
4-3-3-3-3-2-2-1-1. =22
4-4-4-2-2-2-1-1-1. =21
3-3-3-3-3-2-2-2-2. =23

Second, I have an interactive spreadsheet that does most of the calculations required off minimal input, identified with bolded borders.

I would love to see a tool like this in the app, as a modifiable, interactive pdf or an online widget so this process can be easy for everyone. Let the players focus on the character rather than the numbers.

God yes, PLEASE something on the app, lol... I'm dyscalculiac and character creation was a real struggle for me! I eventually got out a ton of pennies and dimes and nickels, but this is a rare instance where I'd had been happy to use technology instead.
