    2. Attributes & Skills

    Finishing a Template Advantages/Disadvantages

    Choose from the listed Advantages/Disadvantages and follow the instructions on thetemplate or Up to 9 pips taken from the Attribute dice may be spent on Advantages andany amount of Disadvantages may be taken.

    Pick Skills A beginning character has 7D to spend on skills; you can add 1D or 2D to any skill shown

    on the template. All skills listed beneath a given attribute begin with that attribute's diecode.

    Defining Interests Hobbies, interests or special areas of study. Characters start with four Defining Interests

    and are free to create them during gameplay. Anytime the subject comes up in-game thecharacter gets a +2 Pips modifier to the whatever attribute or skill is most appropriate.These are areas of interest, not skills.

    Spend Money on Equipment A character starting with "cash" can buy more equipment or weapons. Turn to "weapons

    and Equipment," for a list of items your character can purchase.

    Creating a Template Attribute Dice

    Characters start with 18D for attribute dice. No less than 2D and no more than 4D is anattribute. You can split a die into three pips.

    Advantages/Disadvantages List a number of Advantages and Disadvantages for the template. You not need to follow

    this step if you do not wish to. List Skills Starting Equipment

    List reasonable starting equipment for that character.

    Advantages/Disadvantages At character creation a player may spend up to 9 pips on Advantages and any amount on Disadvantages.When subtracting the Advantages from Disadvantages, if the amount is a positive total the pips are removedfrom the Attribute dice pool. If the the total is a negative this total converts to an equal amount of bonus pipsto the Skill dice pool.

    Example #1: Ivan Sokov purchases the Advantages: Athletic Ability (3 pip), Language Ability (1 pip),Natural Resistance (2 pips) and Toughness (3 pips) for a total of 9 pips. He then purchases hisDisadvantages: Bad Liar (-2 pips), Addictions (-3 pips), Hatred of Authority (-2 pips) and Illiterate (-2 pips) fora total of -9. Everything equals out and there is no additional cost or bonus.

    Example #2: Ivan Sokov purchases the Advantages: Athletic Ability (3 pip), Natural Resistance (1 pip), andToughness (3 pips) for a total of 7 pips. He then purchases his Disadvantages: Bad Liar (-2 pips), Addictions
