    How do you launch character creation in this mod?

    Ok I have installed MGT2 and I can bring up the PCs tab and add a new pc but it wont launch the character creation process.

    any hints?

    thanks

    The base ruleset doesn't have a character wizard. This is a new feature we are currently working with the 5E ruleset. The standard practice is drag and dropping links of various character details to the character sheet.

    Morning,

    As Superteddy said, there's no Wizard. When the 5E one does get released, it will be some time before a Traveller Character Creation Wizard gets released.

    Look at the forum posting here, MxWolfie192 has been created a documentation module detailing such things.

    Cheers,

    Just a thought, a 5E style creation wizard, would be a little wasted (imho) on the richness of Traveller character creation, its almost a sub game in itself, in fact I have had non gaming friends create characters just because they like to see the development rather than actual play.

    I've found my players like to make characters, they just make and make and make and make... never plan to run them but they just keep on making them. That is one of the really cool things about Traveller generation - they always have backup characters.

    isn't it great to have players like that, I have literally hundreds of unplayed pc's created by people in various games, but traveller really is in a class of its own with its background detail

    Yeah the character creation mini game is quite something. I especially love to watch someone's face when they realize their character has died in creation. Course this is with CT or CE.

    Just to note for ya'll that are Referee's with players who like to make characters and make their backstories...
    Ask them if they are ok with that character and backstory being used as an NPC. Your players will get to see their created character come to life, even if they aren't the one specifically controlling it, and you get a nice, fleshed out, NPC complete with backstory, allies, stats, etc. When I make a character that turns out well I actually contact my Referee and give them the character so they can use it, which also means if my character ever dies we already have another character that is in universe and might already have had contact with us that I can pick up and run with.

    I personally love to play the mini game and try to take some characters as far as I can go before they fail. Turn them into NPCs all the time. This way I have a full stock of NPCs/Characters to play and plus it's fun
