Okay, pulling material from the PSA and Characer Generation discussions, I have this to rough draft to submit:

Looking good.

And I miss revision marking.... 'onelimb' should be two words. Same with ½INT, etc (in the race section.)  I assume  a future rev will include racial pictures?

Racial abilities seem a little high, at least compared to Expanded rules if I remember correctly -- 1/2 ability score vs 10% or something like that. Probably good for quick play, though.

In Step 1 of "
To create a STAR FRONTIERS character, follow the nine steps given.", include reference to the online character sheet (I think that you have that at the bottom, but....)

In step 2 of the above, include a reference to the two methods to generate ability scores -- the core/standard method of rolling, or the alternative 'point-buy' rule, described at (thanks for including this!!!!!)

And I know that this is mentioned at the bottom of the page, but....

Should step three be split? It combines generating scores with moving ability scores within a pair. Seems like a different step, and would moving abiity scored within a pair come AFTER racial ability scores?

Do we want punching score for hand-to-hand combat?

Should there be another step : go shopping! with info on how / suggestions / indication that all have a Standard Equipment Pack, plus....

racting' should be 'reacting'

I think the BioSocial PSA verbiage needs a scrub, but I'm too tired to take a shot -- the merging of the two PSA descriptions doesn't flow as well as the other descriptions, IMO.

For some reason I can't access the link. It just sends me to the main page of the site.

Me as well -- I had to manually enter the node number that displays in Shadow Shacks post, but is not a part of the URL when one clicks on it....

(Looks like the URL hase node/node/#### instead of node/####)

I fixed your link, Shadow Shack.  When you created it, you used "node/2163" for the link URL - this is ALMOST perfect.  If you put a slash in front of it, then all will work properly.  "/node/2163" will route properly through Drupal's interpreter.

Thanks for the fix Bill. For some reason it was working for me after I posted it. Wierd.

Okay I got most of the grammar/spelling knocked out,if anyone else finds something drop a Frontier credit...I'll work the alternative generator link into the mix somehow as well as addressing the gear selection. I'll add some race pics in a later revamp too.
