In ATOM RPG you have to create your hero before the game starts. You can choose his appearance, name and write his biography. Other things you need to determine are characteristics, skills, and distinction. Hero's features can be adjusted during the game by creating new items or using them.
How to create a character?
When you create a hero, you can select his appearance. However, it does not affect character statistics. When you choose the appearance of the hero, give him a name, and if you feel like you can even write their bio.
All statistics are influenced by the choice from the distinction category. You can choose between two hero qualities. Once you have chosen them, give away your character's points and character's skills.
