    Expanded Rules

    A: Round out the character

    Fill-in, or roll and/or pick on the Random Character Background Rolls.

    The background rolls are handy for quick-roll PCs and NPCs, or providing a guide or inspiration if you have writers block. With just a few quick rolls of the dice, you've got ourself a rather interesting background, with plenty of things to embellish.

    B: Fill-out any remaining sections of the character sheet

    Write up the background and fill out any remaining detail in the character sheet not filled in by preceeding steps.

    link to Step 8.

    Description: results of the rolls added to the example character. I'm only pasting them into the character sheet, as their embellishment isn't part of this example PC creation.
