1: You have an unlimited* number points to allocate between the eight investigator characteristics (Strength, Dexterity, Intelligence, Constitution, Appearance, Power, Size and Education) plus Luck. There are minimum starting levels of 40pts for Size and Intelligence amd 15pts for the other characteristics; the maximum value for any characteristic is 90pts. Use the buttons adjacent to each characteristic to allocate points.
2: Choose the Game Era (only the classic 20's era us currently supported).
3: Choose to cap initial skills at 75% or 99%
4: Choose a name and gender (you can enter your own name or keep the randomly geneated one). Decide on the age of your investigator - see 'notes' for a summary of how age affects an investigator. Choose an Occupation from the drop down list; this will load the details of the skills for that occupation and also the total 'occupation points' you will have available in the following steps (allocating occupation and personal interest points). Enter the characters birthplace and residence (town/city and country).
5: When everything is completed click the 'Save & Continue' button to proceede to the next step, where any actions resulting from adjusting the investigators age will be dealt with.
Characters added via this method can't currently be added to the Character Library.
This character creation method allows you to choose the values (up to a maximum of 90) for each characteristic (and luck); this allows for a greater range of values than in possible by using the official Point Buy Method of new character generation.
Characters created using this method do follow all the official rules regarding updates due to age and follow the occupation templates for skills and points allocation.
If you are wanting to add an already existing character, one that might have already been used in play and have accrued some skill advancements then you probably want to use the Character Upload feature instead.
