Our current approach to character generation is this:
- Roll 8 sets of 2d6, take the best 6 and arrange to taste for characteristics. Then do standard character generation.
- Then, roll up a second character. Either take the approach above again, or do a point buy on characteristics, followed by standard character generation. Point buy characteristics should have a net of +2 modifiers (for example, add up your modifiers — +1, -1, +2, -2, +0, +2 — and the results should be +2).
- Take whichever character you like best.
After the Traveller Companion is out we will reevaluate point buy methods.
