Dungeon Chatter Podcast
Episode 3: C is for Character Creation
In this episode, Travis and Victoria discuss character creation methods, including how the system functions in Blood of Heroes. We create Han Solo using our heroic creation method.
AD&D, Middle Earth Role Playing (MERP), Rolemaster (RM), Generic Universal Role Playing System (GURPS)
I don’t think we touched on any specific ones here.
PBTRPG (Play by Tweet/Text RPG), PBM (Play by Mail), PBEM (Play by Email). We also discuss charisma and interactions, specifically regarding a party member (my son) who is on the autism spectrum but plays a character with a high charisma. Probably worth an entire show on its own.
I think this was our best sounding podcast, from a technical point of view. Realizing we need to reduce our mic pops a bit. Otherwise, this was pretty crisp and clean.
Choose a profession, a training, and a hobby for your character. We talked through a Han Solo character creation so viewers might be familiar with the character we were trying to model.
Remember: a +1 in our system is 1d20+1d6, a +2 is 1d20+2d6, and a +3 is 1d20+3d6. A roll of 10 or greater is a success, so Solo would be solid with the blaster (DL 44), very good as a smuggler, and exceptional as a pilot. He was created using the heroic method, which gives characters excellent starting skills to set them apart from the rabble.
