  3. I got a group together for a campaign based on a Gene Autry sci-fi serial (if you have to ask…) and it seemed to go okay. One player who was used to D&D was a bit taken aback by the “archetype” ability, until I told him to think of it as his “class.”

    The one drawback that I saw, and this was my mistake, was underestimating how many points it would take to make characters that could be individualized beyond just the stats. There weren’t many points left to but “expertises” or special equipment. I’m remedying this by being liberal with experience points for a while, but if I use the rules again, I’ll set the level at at least 35 points.

    • Thanks Tedski!
      You did right with Archetype = Class in explaining it to your player.

      One thing you might consider is to give players an expertise as part of their standard awards for ongoing use or clever role playing.

      The one drawback I’ve seen with 33+ point distribution is that people tend to just push their base stats up rather than customize, but this too can be managed by limiting starting max level and clearly explaining your expectations for other types of spends (e.g. expertise, equipment, secondary archetype)

      Best of Success!
