Characters are the core of every LRP experience. Your character is the role you play within the game world. This section and its linked pages detail the framework for your roleplay at events.
Skills and abilities are one of the ways of making your character unique. All player characters have some basic abilities, while others must be bought with Character Points.
Most characters start off with the same set of basic abilities, although some species may have less facility with some of them.
There are many species in the galaxy of Orion Sphere, which take a wide variety of forms. Many have unique abilities and powers as a result of their physiology or culture. As a rule of thumb, the more game abilities and innate power a species has, the more onerous the restrictions it will have - either in terms of vulnerabilities and restrictions or physrep requirements (or both!)
Starting Player Characters have 10 Character Points to spend on skills, and earn 1 Character Point after each event. Skills are divided into 4 skill areas: Combat; Professional; Psionic; and Species.
