Character Levels:


To determine a character's level, add the levels of all in-profession(in PSA) skills together, then halve the

levels of all out of profession(outside PSA)skills and add them together.
















Finally, add the two totals together and divide by 2 to generate the average skill level, which will then equal the character's starting

level.











EXAMPLE:

A Military PSA character has Beam Weapons 6, Martial Arts 3, Melee Weapons 3, Technician 6, Computer 2 and Pilot 1.

Adding the PSA skills together, he gets (6+3+3) 12, and adding the outside PSA skills together produces a result of (3+1+1)5.


The character then adds the two totals(12+5) together for a total of 17, which divided by 2 is 8½, rounded off to 8.













The character's average skill level is 8, and his starting d20/True 20 character level is 8 as well.














Character Roles:




















d20 Modern




















Basic character class(Fast, Smart, Strong, etc.) is determined by the highest Ability Score: e.g. Characters with DEX as their highest score are Fast Heroes,

while those with LOG as their highest score are Smart Heroes, and so on.















Should a character have two abilities which are highest, he has two basic classes.















Basic class level is one-half the starting level determined above, with the starting level of each class in a dual-class character being one-quarter the

calculated starting level.











Prestilge classes are determined by the character's PSA and skill set. Starting roles in a prestige class are one-half the calculated

starting level.











True 20




















Using just the core rulebook and the canon Alpha Dawn rules, one finds that the Expert role neatly covers the Technologicial and Biosocial PSA,

while the Warrior role covers the Military PSA nicely. Mentalist characters fall under the Adept role.














Character level for a hero with just one role is his starting character level, while dual-role heros have a level in each role equal to one-half the calculated

starting level.











Action Points(d20 Modern):

As per core rulebook.






Conviction(True 20):


As per core rulebook.
















Skills and Feats




















Recalculate these using the respective core rulebooks and/or supplements.
