Character Sheet

From Haven of The Embraced
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Characters in a roleplaying game are defined in multiple aspects. The player imparts a personality to the character, but most are defined by a series of traits. In the Storytelling System these include Attributes, Abilities, and a number of Advantages including Health Levels, Willpower, Backgrounds, among others.

While not a complete picture of who a character is, these traits provide a means for describing a character's basic information. It lets you know, at a glance, who this character is and a basic idea of what they know. The details of how a character developed these traits and what the specifics are is left to be roleplayed by the player.

Some traits are combined with others to form a Dicepool in order to perform actions. Occasionally, traits are rolled by themselves and in the case of traits such as Willpower, are only ever rolled by themselves. In any case, success or failure at a task is determined by a combination of the traits a character possesses, and their luck on a diceroll.

Character sheets on Haven are formed in one of two ways. During the initial character creation, players are given the option of taking one of three stock Character Archetypes. These give an easy way to populate the sheet with stats without having to place each point individually. Players can also choose to forgo the Archetypes and craft a custom character sheet once they've entered the game.

After creation, traits can be increased by the expenditure of Freebies. Each type of trait has its own cost associated with increasing the rating, usually a multiple of the Current Rating. Typing the 'freebie' command will give a list of all the types of traits the character can increase and their costs.
