Not all people are created equal. Some people are just more physically fit or mentally agile than others. You could roll dice to determine the genetic makeup of characters and, in fact, it might be more accurate to do so, but it’s less fun for everyone when the player characters in a roleplaying game aren’t created on even footing.
For this reason, the DicePunk System gives you a pool of points with which to buy your Attributes, determined by theCampaign Power Level. Players are free to spend this pool of points however they please, resulting in diverse characters that are equal but different.
Other roleplaying games have LOTS of statistics to keep track of, usually between six and twelve. The DicePunk System has only FOUR Main Attributes (although there are some optional and derived statistics to track).
