Character Creation

We use the Savage Worlds Game system for the Battlestar Olympia Campaign.

Characters are drawn up using the standard character generation method in that game with the following exceptions.

Rank Limitation

Skills in Battlestar Galactica have a maximum die type limited by their rank.

Rank Max Die Type
Novice D8
Seasoned D10
Veteran+ D12

No Free Edge

Colonial Characters do not get the free standard edge at character creation, instead they get attribute increase, an edge, or a starting skill depending on their colony of origin.
