MYTHIC D6 Sample Character Creation

Sample Character Creation

Gabriel decided that he would like to create a Hero that is somewhat of a cad, but at his heart good-natured and fun.


Bravo (not his real name, but the name he uses in this era) is an immortal adventurer seeking to do right and atone for past wrongs.

Bravo is a carefree brawler that sometimes allows his impulses and poor decision making to get the better of him.


Step One

The players and the Game Master decide that all the Heroes in the adventure will be created at Power level 3 giving everyone 125 Creation Points to spend.

Step Two

Choosing an archetype

Gabriel decides that Bravo will have the archetype of Bravo (big surprise), and makes a note of the benefits and pitfalls of the Archetype.

Step three

Purchase Attribute.

Gabriel decides that Bravo will be faster and stronger than the average human. At his core, Gabriel wants Bravo to be a brawler that gets things done with action and the use of his hands.

Coordination: Bravo is a little above average here, so Gabriel gives him 3D (12 pts).

Knowledge: Bravo is about average intelligence, so Gabriel allots 2D here (8pts).

Perception: Bravo is a quick thinker and very perceptive, so 3D is placed here (12 pts).

Physique: Bravo is superhumanly strong and represents his one central power. 7D is set here (28 pts).

Presence: Bravo is charming and is very likable. He is also someone who can motivate others to follow him. Gabriel decides that he’s great but not that great and give him 2D (8 pts), and makes the decision that skill will compensate for the average attribute.

Reflexes: Bravo is agile and very adroit physically, 4D goes here (16 pts).

Finally, Gabriel buys 3 Pips to allocate to his attributes for a cost of 4 Points and adds +1 to Coordination and +2 to Reflexes.

On attributes, Bravo has spent 88 Points leaving him 37 points for skills.

Step Four

Purchase Skills
