The second of today’s preview posts about Skyraiders of the Floating Realms, this time a starting character from the game.
Note the Zero edition of the game is still on Kickstarter but we are in the last 34 hours at time of writing.
Janic the Songbird
[Commentary: Characteristics rolled on 3d6, rerolling 1s and 2s, and swooping around two values]

[Commentary: Characters with Strength over 15 get a Bonus Damage, Hit Points = CON]
Career: Bard Age: 29
[Commentary: Career provides 110 of the Additional points below, with an extra 30 coming from a pool so the player can personalise the character. Janic suffers slightly skill-wise for having slightly average characteristics, but this is pretty typical spread for a starting character ]
