Online Character Creation


I’ve had a couple people express interest in making characters already. I figure the easiest way to do this online is to use Irony Games’ Dice Server to roll for your Attributes and Mutations; be sure to send the results to yourself and me (

You will need to make the following rolls:

Determine Attributes:

Remember, in d20 SPECIAL there are seven Attributes and each score also has a fractional component.

  • First six Attributes: Roll 4d6 six times, dropping the lowest die. (These are for your Physical and Mental Attributes.)
  • Luck: Roll 4d6 once, and drop the lowest die. (Luck is the seventh Attribute.)
  • Fractional Scores: Roll 1d100 seven times (don’t drop any dice). These fractional scores apply to the seven Attributes you just rolled, in the order in which you rolled them.

The first six Attributes you can arrange as desired between Strength, Perception, Endurance, Charisma, Intellect, and Agility. The seventh roll is Luck; you can’t swap it out with any of the other scores.

(Fractional advancement is a bit fiddly, so I’d prefer to roll that myself. Once you’ve picked your class I’ll let you know how much your Attributes increase with each level.)

Generate Mutations

If you’re playing a near-human or mutant human, you’ll need to roll up your mutations. For each mutant perk of a given grade, you’ll have a mutant defect of the same grade, so you might as well roll them up as pairs.

  • For each pair of mutations, roll 1d100 twice. The first roll is your perk, the second roll is your flaw. Be sure to include which grade of mutation (minor, medium, or major) you are rolling for in the subject line!
  • Refer to the appropriate tables to see what mutations you’ve got. Roll for as many mutations you want, up to the maximum specified by your genotype.

Starting Equipment

Don’t worry about your starting equipment for now…

Remember: Make sure to specify the subject and include yourself and me ( in the e-mail instructions!

Everything else you can decide for yourself and let me know your choices. Refer to the Character Creation rules on the sidebar. You can leave comments in this post or e-mail me the details. Then I’ll write your PC up and post him online.
