Required Reading

The New Character Form lets you create a character sheet as a wiki page - but only after you understand the Game Mechanics of the Discovered Universe. These are broken down into:

In Fate systems, your character is a co-created with the other players and the person running the game and responsible for ensuring continuity of the narrative (the Gamerunner or 'GR'). In the Discovered Universe all characters start off human and alive and within our solar system. Other that that you can go fairly wild, choosing any kind of culture, religion, race, age, language, etc.

Character creation is a quick, creative, collaborative, and iterative journey. Expect to tweak your aspects and characteristics before the game begins, as you discuss your ideas with the GM and other players.
