About Filling out Your Sheet
Use this web site to build Story Line characters where NO DICE are required. RANK LEVELS (renown, warrior, artificer, character, & civic) will be gained as you play. Levels are gained or purchased with rank dots and experience earned by posting and completing story goals, missions and events. Request Start Levels according to your Role Playing Experience.
Compare (or dice roll) these levels against other character's class levels to estimate combative and defensive outcomes as needed, balanced with influence (civic rank).
Ranks also define physical and mental checks. Checks too are essential and are used for gauging strength, endurance, speed, stealth, agility, courage, alertness, intelligence, and natural charm, against each other when posts alone cannot determine an outcome. The Story Character levels are below general information in Levels section. These levels can be rolled with dice if needed.
If no combat or magic, take CIVIC Level as character level at +1 per common and trait skill or level gained. Civic level defines character rank and reknown as a civilian.
Use Rank Page in Character building to see what your Character's Rank is in any given skill or class.
