3.5 Advanced Character Creation

QuestWorlds offers two advanced methods of character creation: prose and list.

3.5.1 The List Method

This is like the As-You-Go method (see §3.1) but you spend all their points before the game begins. This is possible with the As-You-Go method as well, but the list method allows you to signal what they want the game to be about from the abilities you pick, as opposed to reacting to material once the game begins.

3.5.2 The Prose Method

This is the most different method as you write a piece of prose and then pull abilities from that. Its intent is to emulate a character description in fiction, and indeed PCs can be built by copying text from a story and then identifying keywords. It is the least ‘fair’ of the character creation options.
