My Fantasy Game: Character point buy examples

This is just as an example of how dice spends work.

Recap:

Attributes
Strength, Skill, Will, Wits
Choose one at D10, 2 at d8 and 1 at d6,
OR 2 at D10 and 2 at d6
OR 1 at d12, 1 at d8 and 2 at d6

Creation dice – choose 20 dice steps (d6=1,d8=2…) Across Specialties, Powers and Resources. Resources cost 1 step less (or 2 at d6 for 1 step) due to built-in limit, and ability to create resources in game.

Choose 3 sfx – can be split amongst power and resources.
Choose 1 limit, unless special in which case choose 2. Gear automatically has the Gear limit.

Optional

  • Dice steps can be spent on extra sfx.
  • 2 dice steps can be spent to increase one attribute die.
  • Start at higher levels of dice – 25, 30…

Example 20 dice spends:

SSWW                   D10, D8, D8, D6
Powers                 D8, D10, D6         3 SFX     1 limit
Specialties           d8, d8, d8, d8, d6, d6, d6
Resources           d8 Gear, d8 Gear, d6 location, d6 ally
(0+6 + 11 + 3 = 20)

SSWW                   D12, D8, D8, D6
Powers                 D10, D10,             4 SFX     1 limit
Specialties           d10, d8, d6, d6
Resources           d10 Gear, d8 gear, d8 location,
(2+ 7 + 7 + 4 = 20)

SSWW                   D10, D8, D8, D6
Powers                 D8, D10,               3 SFX     1 limit
Specialties           d10, d10, d10, d8, d6,
Resources           d10 Gear, d8 Gear,
(0+5 + 12 + 3 = 20)

20 points is ok for simple starting characters where they will be in a party. For fewer PCs i would up the starting amount.
