The Evil GM - Far Away Land - Taking a close look at Character Creation
Before you begin rolling dice and making a PC, think about the type of PC you want to create. Take into consideration the type of game the GM will be running and the ways your PC could be both unique and beneficial to the game setting. It is a good idea for players and GMs to discuss the type of characters being created.
Once your group has decided on the type of game to play, look for inspiration from movies, books, TV, cartoons, etc. to help you create the character you want. Don't worry about making the perfect character but rather a character that is unique and interesting to you.
Boons represent areas in which a PC has trained or had experience and therefore gains a bonus die to their Stat roll when attempting a specific action. All Boons start with a +1 die bonus which is applied to the Stat roll associated with the Boon. A Boon can have a maximum score of +5. PCs begin with a maximum of 4 Boons.
