    Officially Humans may add 5 points to any one ability of one pair, in our games Humans add 5 points to both abilities of one pair.

  • Step 3: Racial Special Abilities

    All non-humans have a special ability or two. The abilities listed with a base percentage may be increased with experience points.

  • Step 4: Determine Homeworld

    Determine some of the physical specifics about the character's homeworld (population, society and tech are chosen, not rolled) and adjust stats appropriately. HomeWorld Generation can be found elsewhere on this site.

  • Step 5: Determine Initiative Modifier

    Initiative Modifier is determined by dividing the character's RS by 10, rounding fractions up. This number is added to all initiative rolls made by the character.

  • Step 6: Determine Hand To Hand Damage

    Hand To Hand Damage is based on a character's Strength stat and is added to all melee and brawling attacks that use non-energy weapons, and is the base damage done by the character in bare-hand combat.
    Strength Stat 01-20 21-40 41-60 61-80 81-00

  • Step 7: Choose a Profession

    Each character then chooses a profession from Enforcer, TechEx, SciSpec, Explorer, and possibly Mentalist if your Game Master is allowing them. Spend 10 XP on skills from that profession and gain that professions' special skill.

  • Step 8: Determine Starting Funds

    Classic Star Frontiers gives each character Cr200+d100. In our games characters begin with Cr1000+2d100.
