To start a new player character, take the following steps:
The first step to creating a character is to determine who he or she is. Think about where this character came from - which region were they born or raised in (talk to the narrator if a specific region might be used). How old are they? What experiences have they had that led them to this point in their lives? Select one of the mortal species for your character, and give them a name.
The mortal race you selected for your character will provide a variety of attributes by default, along with a few specific benefits. Be sure at this point to record those attributes:
In addition, any other effects the species provides can be recorded now, or as appropriate throughout the rest of the process of creating a character.
Each player character can start with any single tale unlocked for free. Select the tale and mark it on your character sheet. This does not unlock any talents in the tale, only the tale itself.
While any tale can be selected, many tales in the game are intended for use by more advanced characters; think carefully about what talents you want your character to have early access to, keeping in mind that your character will have very few SP to spend on unlocking them to start with.
Each player character begins with the following attribute values; note that these can be upgraded by spending story points immediately, or in the future.
