Character Creation

The Varuna Project leverages a 5-level D6 combat and character system. Upon creation, players have twenty (20) points they may distribute across the stat-list, with a maximum of ONE stat at level 3. Each level gains an additional 1d6 on all skill checks related to that stat. 

Every skill has an opposed check: either a corresponding skill on their opposing player's stat list, or a task complexity with a target success roll. This can be determined either by the players in the scene, or by a game master. 

 


At character creation you may distribute twenty points across the below skills with ONE at a max level 3:
