I’ve been thinking about pre-gens for potential Cypher System Star Trek and Star Wars one-shots. Nerdarchy has a great post which stats out the most popular characters in both franchises. This will serve as a great way to create pregens (just take the character sentences, and make them all Tier 1 characters).

The Cypher Rules System ranks character power in Tiers from 1 to 6. (For Star Wars, the Jawa that sold Uncle Owen R2-D2 and C-3PO would be Tier 1. Darth Vader would be Tier 6.)

Here is the current conversion –


  • Leia Organa – Tier 5 Noble Speaker who Defends the Weak
  • Han Solo – Tier 4 Brash Explorer who Looks for Trouble
  • Chewbacca – Tier 3 Strong Explorer who Stands Like a Bastion
  • Lando Calrissian – Tier 4 Lucky Speaker who Fights with Panache
  • Boba Fett – Tier 4 Sharp-eyed Warrior who Masters Weaponry
  • Poe Dameron – Tier 3 Swift Warrior who Pilots Starcrafts
  • Finn – Tier 4 Virtuous Explorer who Never Says Die
  • Captain Phasma – Tier 3 Calm Explorer who Metes Out Justice


  • Jean-Luc Picard – Tier 5 Resilient Speaker who Masters Defense
  • William T. Riker – Tier 4 Clever Warrior who Defends the Weak
  • Worf – Tier 4 Strong-willed Warrior who Hunts with Great Skill
  • Data – Tier 3 Mechanical Adept who Entertains
  • James T. Kirk – Tier 6 Impulsive Warrior who Leads
  • Spock – Tier 5 Intelligent Adept who Calculates the Incalculable
  • Odo – Tier 3 Perceptive Adept who Solves Mysteries
  • Kathryn Janeway – Tier 4 Driven Speaker who Leads

Here’s the full post.
