Character Template

Post by Administrator Kate on Wed Jan 28, 2015 12:32 pm

This is the character template.  It's usage is required.  Nobody may cut parts of the template out,  but simply leave optional parts blank.   You may add to the template so long as the order or existing content is not changed.
The template states minimum word requirements, but  exceeding the minimum by double results in 1 bonus "Power Point".  Exceeding twice that yet again merits a second power point.    Reviewing staff member can reduce granted points or bestow extra by merit of quality, originality, and 'depth' of the character. "RP Sample" is optional but a good RP sample will get you anywhere between 1-4 bonus power points.

 Don't be afraid to ask anyone else for things and be sure to use google.  Almost any question you can ask has probably already been asked before and answered, regarding the M&M mechanics.
As for the system itself,  simply google "Mutants and Masterminds 2e Core Rulebook" and you can find it,  or you can purchase your own book digital or hardcopy.  


It's recommended you also get Hero Lab, the free version(Like I use) is perfectly functional for this but you wont be able to save characters on it.  But it makes building the character easy, which you can then translate to the character template and mythweavers sheet.  Completely optional of course.   Hero Lab also hosts many other systems,  if you're into tabletop games in general Hero Lab is very useful.






Base Identification Data-
Name:  Name.
Chrono-Age:  Chronological Age,  time since first created or born. If you were born before (Or during?) The Lost Century,  simply state Pre-LC.   There have been 100 years since the end of the LC,  which is the longest amount of time someone may have memory of.  No one possesses memories of pre-LC life let alone memories from during the LC.   The average transhuman lives well beyond 100 years,  but aging varies on the body.  Pre-LC Transhumanity tended to just switch bodies freely or utilize revitalizing "baths".   Post-LC transhumanity no longer has those benefits with varying lifespans on their bodies based on when they were last treated pre-LC.
Race:  The character's race.  Pre-LC, people changed bodies almost as freely as clothing.  Post-LC,  people don't get to be picky about whatever body they come into life or wake up in. 
Gender ID:  For once the early 21st century gender concepts make sense with the Pre-LC freedom of body image.  What gender is your character's psyche?
Sexuality:  What is your character's sexual persuasion.  What attracts them?  It isn't quite as simple as being attracted to men or women anymore both physically and romantically.

________________________
Character Psyche Details-
Personality:  A description of the character's overall personality.  It's hard to cover everything but try to get at the core roots while the rest of the sections can project more personality than can be forced out into words here.  Still,  aim for a minimum of 150 words. 
Likes:  A minimum of three things the character likes,  bullet pointed for separation and given individual detail.  Why do they like it?  What do they like about it?  Min 25 words each.
Dislikes: A minimum of three things the character dislikes,  bullet pointed for separation and given individual detail.  Why do they dislike it?  What do they dislike about it?  Min 25 words each.
Worries:  A minimum of three things that sometimes keep the character up at night or influence their actions?  Afraid of GLASS attacking your home?  Worried about if your soul is in some afterlife while your consciousness moves on in life after first getting a new body?   Min 25 words each. 
Motivations:  What motivates the character?  What are their aspirations?  What do they want out of their potential millenniums, even eons, who knows,  of life.
Quirks: What small quirks of their personality might you add?  Little habits, actions, or sayings and the like.


________________________
Appearance-
Height:  The height of the body.
Weight:  The weight of the body.
Hair:  The color and length of your hair if any.
Physique:  A physical description of the body,  following its contours,  textures,  sturdiness,  sex appeal,  coloration,  ect.   75 words min.   Include a good picture to reduce by 25 words. 
Style: A description of the character's style.   This much tends to transcend favored body and is more of a psyche thing,  but it can vary from body to body.   How do they dress?  How do they do their hair?  What are their favored colors?  Are they a fan of jewelry? 
Mods:  What notable features are part of the body?  These are intentional improvements and changes either biological or technological that are part of the base body.
Face Claim: What character or source do you use to show off your character?  Face "Claims" aren't enforced but there will still be a list so people can avoid stepping on toes.  

________________________
World Integration Details-
Affiliation:  What organizations,  groups, corporations,  governments,  and so on is your character affiliated with?
Homebase:  Where does your character consider home, or their main base of operations (or both)?  Planet / Country(Optional) / City.  - Galaxy.
Reputation: What reputation does your character have?  This isn't so clear cut as someone can be vilified in one station and unknown in another on the other side of the system.  Bounty has a way of following someone though,  and crime networks can connect many stations or colonies,  and augmented reality tends to provide real-time alerts if you see a wanted individual.
History: What is the character's history?  Who are they?  Where did they come from?  What trials have they faced in life?  What do they do?  What led them to do it?  And so on.   A minimum of 250 words is expected here.  Even if you're only a day old there's still a history behind conception/creation. 
RP Sample: A sample writing using your character,  a window into your character's life and a trial run for you to show a bit of them in action.  This isn't necessarily in a format as though you were posting with someone since by nature you don't have others to interact with.  

________________________
Character Capability Details-
From here on is the Mutants and Masterminds content.  This is the OOC meat of the character while the above is the IC meat.  Don't worry about the M&M stuff too much regarding the IC, it's use is mainly in building the character and their skills, feats, and powers as a reference point more than anything.
