Players will be given 150 points to generate their characters. However, you may only spend 108 points on attributes. This is actually very reasonable, in that you could build a character with thirteens in all 4 attributes. Furthermore, this restriction is only applied toward the 4 main attributes (ST, DX, IT, HT), it does not prevent you from putting additional points into will or extra hit points. All characters start with Literacy and $1000.
The players are responsible for generating their own backgrounds. The only stipulation is that they must provide a reason or justification as to why they are on the payroll at Columbia University, usually working in conjunction with the American Museum of Natural History in New York City.
Here are some of the more obvious justifications:
|Professor of History|
|Special Projects Manager|
