Play anything you want, as long as it fits the world, age and tone of the adventure

Character concepts are not limited to fitting a list of classes anymore. Now you have only two concerns: fitting the tone of the adventure and having a blast.

Explore canonically “weak” or “overpowered” concepts without drawbacks

This means you may play canonically weak or exceptionally strong concepts without being cut off from the action or bypassing it through sheer numeric might. Odd or unusual characters have also been unlocked, as special powers and unique features do not need to be coded in terms of damage, duration, area of effect, level, and so on. Polymorphed wizard, alien, supermutant, crazy cat lady, ghost, blind archer, time traveler are all equally viable, depending on the chosen context.

However, attributes and scores have not been removed. The might of a character goes hand in hand with their role within the story, and while their chances of success are heavily influenced by these values, they will never be completely immune to death and failure. On the other hand, weaker characters may perform outstanding feats and quickly rise to glory, either by luck or dedication.

Create well rounded, interesting protagonists

Just like it happens with plot tools, we also added guidelines and tips to help you lay down your character’s core features. Mold memorable protagonists with fatal flaws, unique skills, goals, arcs and background notes, and let your own creations surprise you by evolving into new, unforeseen shapes.
