Loving the system!
That sounds like a guy to hang out with - or make a movie of !!

Yep... that is one that I use too - and probably the option I'll take for the people that don't have the books and just want to get started. The part I really about this one is the Event Table it gives you at the end.

If you jump to our CC thread , you'll see the tables quickly generated from its output and how it will lead to the cool part which is the story that will go with it.

I'm table challenged so I'll be a bit working on a [BB code] CS for us. It will be VERY basic. It might not start off much more than what you see there now. As we play, we can add info. for credits, patrons, etc. etc. and just free-form it at that point based on the player's wants. I'm just going to standardize the Basic Stats, the Opening Background, and the Mechanics Dashboard.

As soon as I understood how the character creation bit worked, I had to put it down. I'm a hopeless optimizer, so the less I study the different options, the more I can actually do CC organically instead of trying to build super-megasonic-middle-aged-stamp-collector.

Re: getting grandfathered into having a less specific application, I appreciate not having to pick even a temporary name yet. Keeps me from getting too attached to my 2-2-2-2-2-2

I wish I had time to play another game (partly because Traveller is a great game, and partly because Savoylen is a great GM), but I'll have to settle for playing around with the generator when I have a few minutes spare to do so. Chargen in Traveller is always fun, even back in the LBB days when most of my characters died during training.

Ok I added a name, sex and home world.

I too tried a character generator and had some fun. My highest attribute was a 3 on the first go around..

Phew! I can honestly say I have never seen that happen. Even though it's not actually in the rules maybe we should make it a houserule that if the average is 3 or below we reroll...

I love playing the underdog... but that is well rough.

How freakin deep IS this rabbit hole?? I started looking up stuff about homeworlds. I'm no longer sure what month it is. I almost missed mother's day even. But nobody wanted me to explain that there is no firm rule on Mother's day in the Sword Worlds sector.

Yep, and I thought the background on Tolkien's Middle Earth was deep.
Until now!
