A comprehensive look at character creation stat point allocation.

Colony Ship.

While this game is in Early access for approximately the next 2 years i will update as necessary stat changes and quest changes as needed.

Colony ship is an isometric turn based RPG with a dystopic cyberpunk theme.
dealing with the harsh realities of life aboard a live ship in the aftermath of a civil war for control of the ship on its journey to Alpha Proximi.

This guide will cover everything from character generation to skill checks of note , secrets
build guides ect and expanded upon as the game opens more content.

If there is support ill write a comprehensive guide to the game.

With my first playthough being a max charisma as neutral as possible run in terms of annoying factions but doing whats morally right in any individual circumstance.

Character Creation.

Character creation is somewhat straight forwards with the basics of stat placement and values changes.
But we will go over the changes as we add points into our primary attributes and what changes are expected for a level 1 char and potentially ahead as you increase in levels ad skills over time.

Each stat starts off as a base of 4 as default.

We will go over the increase of points up to the max of 10 the initial generation allows.
