For day 6 of the Character Creation Challenge I decided to create a character in a game that's
In this game you roll two d6 six times and arrange them how you want. I rolled pretty well and, after looking over the career tables, decided I wanted to try to make this character a soldier.
STR 9 DEX 7 END 10 INT 7 EDU 5 SOC 9
I chose the Savage Hinterland background which gave me the skills:
Your character starts at the age of 14 and goes through 4 year terms in their career. You can choose the career you would like your character to be in, however, you must make a qualification roll. If you fail the qualification roll you must take the Commoner or Noble career, depending on your Social Standing, or choose the Vagabond career.
So I wanted my character to be a Soldier. The qualification roll is 8+ with a bonus for a high endurance. I rolled a 7 but I got a +1 for my Endurance so I made it.
First is basic training. The character receives their six service skill at level 0. So I get.
Melee Combat 0
And I get Melee Combat 1 for being a simple Legionary.
Having a skill at 0 means you don't get an unskilled penalty. Since he already has Recon at 1, receiving it at 0 has no effect.
Next is a Survival Roll. If you don't make this your character dies. I need a 6 with a STR bonus. I pass easily.
Since I survived I get two skills for my first term. I roll:
Then an Advancement Roll which is SOC 6+. I pass that and I'm promoted to Tesserarius. I receive a skill for that and another roll.
Then I rolled for a life event. I rolled Art of War.
Then it's time to reenlist if you want. I need a 5, rolled a 7 and choose to.
Term 2 Age 18
I survived, received another promotion, rode with the cavalry but failed my reenlistment roll. So it's time to muster out. I get two mustering out rolls, one for each term but I do not have a high enough rank to gain any rolls from that. I decide to roll once on each table.
So this is my character:
Age 22 Former Soldier Final Rank: Signifier
STR 9 DEX 8 END 10 INT 7 EDU 5 SOC 9
Melee Combat 2
