Welcome to the Character Creation section for the game Role-Player! This section of the rulebook details the Advantages, Disadvantages, Skills, Backgrounds and Equipment available to characters in the world of Role-Player! The costs are liable to change at the discretion of the referee (or Warden), or according to the constantly shifting nature of society. However, be aware that the main characters in Role-Player! are often completely untouched by the changes that happen to the rest of the world.
Throughout this section we have used the male pronoun. This is not intended as a slight to the female gender, but as a reflection of the society in which Role-Player! exists.
These are benefits that can be purchased at the point of character creation. They raise the Role-Player! character above the standard set by his peers, often making the character actually able to live exist outside of the marginal society of ordinary Role-Player! characters.
