On the other hand, looking at my templates, I see that most of them require one to three stunts (i.e. refresh) to build. That's a lot. Also, I don't want players to get rid of the initial mundane stunt in favor of defining themselves exclusively by the Extras. Additionally, every player character is supposed to be a supernatural creature.
Therefore, each player character receives at character creation:
- Five aspects
- A skill pyramid topped at Great (+4).
- One free stunt
- One free extra that normally costs one refresh
- Three refresh (to keep or buy additional stunts or extras)
Note: This is the last post about the Stranger Shores, as I've dropped the idea. Also, one of my players remarked that it is a bit close to Vampire: The Requiem.
