Minimum PC

Months ago, I explored rules-light character creation in a mere 7 words and phrases here.

Today, I'm going to cut it down even shorter. Let's say you don't even have the time for 7. We'll do it in 3!!! Not possible, you say? Bullshit, I reply!

First Word/Phrase: What is your character? A human, droid, alien, cyborg, mutant, or something else. Don't feel like you have to fully describe your choice right away. For instance, if you choose "alien," that doesn't mean you have to detail what he's like. Leave that part blank for the moment, if you prefer.

Second Word/Phrase: What does your character do? This is his profession, passion, or just something he's good at.

Third Word/Phrase: Tell me something interesting about your character. What makes him different? What makes him playable? Putting it another way, is there anything about this character that you're keen to explore?

Example: Te'eka is a human space ranger with looks that kill (literally, she's got eye-lasers!) And yes, I'm adding "space ranger" to the list of new careers.

That's all you need! Now, I'm not saying you should do the bare minimum regarding character generation. It's not for everyone, and more than likely you have time to put some thought into choices (or random rolling). This is just to show you that it can be done in 3 words/phrases.

Why, yes, this article (and I'll be expanding upon it) is going into my upcoming Alpha Blue supplement Alien Ass, Hydrogen Gas, or Cosmic Grass... No One Warps For Free! In fact, I'm Kickstarting it right fucking now.

Thanks for your support,
