Players and PCEdit
A PC (Player Character) is the avatar of a player in SW2.0. PCs can take various actions based on player statements, by telling the GM what they wish to have their character do typically in a statement in the form of “I... ”. If the PC wishes to speak, the player merely needs to speak the words that he wishes his character to say.
PCs are adventurers in the world of Raxia. There are further details concerning adventurers and Raxia in Chapter 4. The World, but it is not necessary to read that section at first. Just remember the GM’s explanations.
How to read the character sheetEdit
Here we go over the character sheet which manages the PC’s data. The Character Sheet is where we write data such as the PC’s classes, abilities and equipment. To gain a understanding of where things are written, or what to write on the character sheet, please cross reference the numbered sections on the example sheet.
