Decided to test-drive my Crawl! Articles on character features (build, height, weight, hair and eye colour, distinguishing features) and expanded Occupations (including tables tied to Abilities, so if, f’rinstance, your highest score is Strength 14, you’d roll on the Strength-based Occupations table). Here’s the first entirely random character created using the DCC core rules and the Crawl! articles:Name:
5’ 8”, Weight:
148 lbs., Build:
Light Auburn, Eyes:
Light Gray, Distinguishing Feature:
Warrior’s Arm (shame he has no modifier here!)
STR 14 (+1)
PER 7 (-1)
LUCK 9Hit Points:
Shield, Small SackWealth:
31cpVos is a wiry, surprisingly strong raider with a lust for wine, women, and wealth and an unfortunate disdain for anything approaching civilized manners. Gray-eyed and marred by a ruined right ear, he wears tatty wool trews and a dirty fur vest and carries a heavily-scarred handaxe and wooden shield, as well as a patchy old sack tucked into his belt.
It was pretty funny to end up rolling a stereotype, so would anyone like to roll another test-drive character with me? Roll the abilities up, 3d6 in order, and we'll go from there.
