Chronicles of Orion's Arm
Simple Character Creation
Keeping it simple? Pick a Racial Package Deal and a Professional Package Deal. See how many Character Points you have left to assign. Spend them, and you’re good-to-go!
I recommend that everyone write a character background. It doesn’t have to be long; a paragraph can be enough, as long as it explains where the character comes from, and how s/he got to the place in his life where s/he is now at loose ends, looking for an adventure, career, tomorrow’s dinner, or even something to relieve one’s boredom. Reading up on some of the planet descriptions may yield some ideas.
The Hard Way
Buy everything as per normal HERO System rules.
