Amazing Adventures Character Creation Question

Post by Venture-Stein »

I'm interested in the optional creation system in which you start with 25 points, and all stats begin at a -2. My question is, if I spend these evenly do i end up with a +3 in one stat, and a +2 in all the others? Am I doing this right? Isn't this the equivalent of 18, 17, 17, 17, 17, 17? This seems high, am I doing this wrong? Any help would be appreciated.

Where is this generation method given?

On page 14 it talks about all scores starting at 6, and you get 45 points to spread amongst them with a max of 18. So it would take 12 points to make an 18, thus you could have 1 score at 18 (12 pts), one score at 14 (8 points), 1 score at 13 (7 points), and 3 scores at 12 (18 points), or even 3 scores at 18 (36 pts) and 3 scores at 9 (9 points).

Top of page 15, two option boxes, it's the second option.

Yes, you end up with a +3 in one stat and +2 in all the others. If you don't want a very high powered game, this probably isn't the method you want to use.

Cool. Thanks for clarifying, I wasn't sure if I was doing that right.

If you want a more balanced spread for that method, go with 16 or 17 points. Unless my math is off, 17 points should give you:

0 0 0 +1 +2 +2

Or

0 0 0 +1 +1 +3
