Character creation consists of the following phases:
- Pick seven Aspects (including the High Concept)
- Assign 25 points of Skills
- Gain Powers and Stunts (some of the custom Powers available at the Dresden Wiki are available subject to GM approval – most of the powers listed there are fan-created and need some vetting. A summary of the default Powers is available on the DFRPG Downloads page, which has a number of good resources.)
We’re going for the “Waist Deep” power level to start off with, so characters get 25 skill points, a skill cap of “Great”, and 7 starting Refresh points. (Characters who take no Powers or other “supernatural” abilities get 2 bonus Refresh points for Stunts.)
If you’d like some assistance, you can download this Windows-based character generator – it doesn’t have all of the custom abilities, but it’s a good place to start.
