Character Creation Challenge - Day 14 Open Basic

Today I will create a character for Open Basic: Retro d100 Roleplaying.  This is a free
game based on a certain family of games from the late 70s/early 80s and is only 10 pages long.  It's focused on medieval type characters because that's what the weapons' list and skills are focused on and it has a supplement that adds in fantasy.  You can find Open Basic here.

To generate characteristics you roll 3d6 for Strength, Constitution, Dexterity, Intelligence and Charisma.  And 2d6+6 for Intelligence and Size.

Then you calculate five derived Attributes.  Damage Modifier, Hit Points, Movement Rate, Lucky! and Smart!

Then Skills, which have a base value determined by your Characteristics and then you have points to distribute amongst them. 

And then finally equipment.  I rolled 70 silver pieces to spend and I start with leather armor and the weapon of my choice.

So here's my character.
