Character creation on the Sea of Storms is talent based with one notable exception: characters may select only one 'special talent'. Attributes should be set at this time, as well as the physical character traits.
(See also help on: talents, attributes, traits)


The Sea of Storms has no levels of experience: characters will advance as they learn more skills, forms and weaves. As well, characters will have a training level for each major weapontype and channeling. Code learning takes place when characters observe others using skills/weaves/forms and requires roleplaying. Characters will also gain experience that can be used to increase attributes. A Character's forms, skills, flows and weaves will rise with use and when they reach a certain level, cause the character's training level in the appropriate area to rise.
