T5 Char Creation Sample

Whew. The first Character using T5 was a tough one for me. It took me a while to find out how to use the appropriate sections of the rule book.

So I wanted to roll up my primary Char

Sir Tarlon Rhaan

Knightship on Gerim (Requirement due to Patent of Nobility Card from T5 Kickstarter).

Rolling up the six primary characteristics:

  1. Strength (3+3 = 6) Average
  2. Dexterity (4+4 = 8) Average
  3. Endurance (5+6 = B) Great Endurance
  4. Intelligence (6+6 = C) Very Gifted
  5. Education (2+4 = 6) Some College
  6. Social Status (5+6 = B) Knight

So the primary goal to create a Knight is already met.

Plays of Thought

Two Ship Shares in Scout Service could provide my Scout with a Scout/Courier on loan and one additional 25ton Shipshare, or…

Gerim is in the Caledon Subsector of the Reavers Deep Sector, where the Royal Caledonian Expeditionary Service (RCES) serves as a quasi-equivalent of the IISS. This Service employs a 200ton Fairmile Model G Scout ship performing the duty of the IISS Scout Courier. Two ship shares can be interpreted as loan of a larger ship as this Fairmile Model G Scout instead. Perhaps an IMTU solution.

Summary

As I was commuting to and from work I didn’t use dice, but an Android App called DiceBag. I didn’t understand the Pre Career Education first, so I did that in between shifting the whole String of Scout Terms backwards by 4 years, re-rolling Aging tests as needed to squeeze in the College Education (first), then by anothe 6 years re-rolling aging effects as needed to squeeze in University and Spacer Career. Then I realized all aging rolls were made worng (I rolled 2D lower or Equal STR, DEX, END respectively, so I needed to re-roll all again to obey the rules (roll 2D but higher tha 5 means failed to feel the effects of aging which is basically good).

However the final Character has a lot of Skills and quite high Attributes but I learned a lot. I will likely re-roll the character a few times to get a better feeling and understanding of the whole process. The Equivalent Describtion of the Characteristics however do not seem to be so much out of the frame, so I think I will accept this Character.

This took me about 9 hours to assemble. Tha is way too much for Character generation. With a bit of familiarity, I think this can be reduced to about 2-4 hours, which is appropriate for a starting game session.

Have fun
