Character Generation

From Cuendillar MUSH Wiki

A character generation system, or "chargen" for short, is a method of defining a character's abilities, knowledge and training in various fields. The Cuendillar chargen system has been designed to help people create varied and intricate characters to add to their enjoyment of the game. The system is also used to resolve role-playing conflicts, and allows for more realistically coded commands and objects that people can interact with.

Once characters have gone through the initial chargen process, their skills and knowledge can be increased by spending Experience Points, or XP. These are earned through role-play and in other ways.

This section serves as an introduction to the system and suggests a few things for you to consider before you take your character through the chargen system. It also attempts to answer some common questions that people have.
