BF Character Creation
Additional steps for character creation, to ensure you don’t miss any of the new systems in Bright Future. Also a short introduction to new systems will be included with their steps during creation.
You can still use D&D 5e character sheets, however you may prefer to use the supplementary sheet to track new systems. A Bright Future character sheet will (eventually) be available, and will include space for everything except spells. Since nothing has changed in terms of spells use the D&D 5e sheets for recording spells will work fine.
Setup Stability Aspects
Stability Aspects are the types of mental stability you have and can lose. The higher the strength, the longer and harder it is to break. For character creation you only need to calculate your Aspect strengths. All Stability saves are made with Charisma, as Charisma represents your characters conviction.
Detachment = 3 + Proficiency Bonus + Charisma Mod.
Stress = 3 + Proficiency Bonus + Intelligence Mod.
Trauma = 3 + Proficiency Bonus + Wisdom Mod.
