Character CreationYes these steps are out of sink with the steps in the book.
Step 1 Power & ExperienceCharacter Power Level (CPL) is Heroic. Specify this on your sheet, it will go up as you level. Character Experience Level (CEL) is Adept, specify this on your sheet, it will go up as you level. Since we are using Skill Modes, this provides you with 0 extra skill points, but does give you 2 Grounded Perks and 1 Heroic Perk. Keep note of how many perks you get, you may get some from your race and/or skill modes.
Step 2 RacePick you race and note what you get from your race. Use your current character as a guide and don't be afraid to ask questions.
Step 3 AspectsFill in the Aspects the best you can. At the very least you should have the Defining and Disadvantage Aspects.
Step 4 AchievementsAchievements are not aspects. These are short term goals for your character and 1 of the 3 ways you will gain XP. It is a good idea to have at least 2 of the goals filled in at any one time. When you fill one in I will give it an XP value based on how long I think it will take you to achieve that goal, usually about 1XP per 2 sessions. These are suppose to be personal to your character, aka Personal Achievements. Each achievement line has a specified theme of an achievement. Next is a list of Strand Achievements that anyone can do. The last type of achievement are Secret Achievements, that I will reveal when someone accomplishes them.
Open Strand Achievements
Remember each character may only accomplish each of these only once. This is not exhaustive, more will be added as time goes on.

Step 5 SkillsBelow is a list of Skill Modes. Pick 3 different modes. Pick one mode to start at +3, each skill in that mode starts at +3. Check the other two modes to see if there are any redundant skills, if there are that skill gets +1 for each redundant skill. Erase the used redundant skills. Next pick a mode to start at +2, do the same for the redundant skills in the last mode. The remaining skills in the last mode start at +1. Finally, if you have any skill points, like from your race or from the special skill mode, one at a time apply skill points to any skills you want that are under +4. Each skill point applied raises the skill by +1. Notice the Special mode gives less skills, but grants extra perks and powers depending on if you ranked it +3,+2, or +1.
|Mode||Skill #1||Skill #2||Skill #3||Skill #4|
