1. Choose the faction for your character
  2. Depending on whether they are Distributed Process or one of the organic races will effect how their “skills” work, see the relevant section below
  3. Use the google form below to create a character sheet
  4. Enter your starting equipment from the equipment list.

The prices of skills are shown on the form.

Skill Effects

Organic Characters


The first thing you must pick is your characters affinity: Logic, Aggressive Neuro External, or Empathic Neuro External

Logic Characters can buy advanced logic or medicine skills, but can never buy any neuro external skills.

Neuro external characters can buy the relevant neuro external skills, but never skills from the other neuro eternal branch, or any skills from advanced logic or medicine.

This is chosen at character creation and cannot be changed.

All organic characters can buy skills from the “universal skills” section.


You have six points with which to obtain skills for your character.

Distributed Process Characters

If you are playing in the Distributed Process, rather than buying skills, you have ‘Capacity’ to install four engrams during character creation (The form will not stop you adding more, so please take care not to add more than four)

Engrams largely mirror skills

Each engram also has an associated roleplaying effect that will influence your characterisation

Any unchosen engrams are left as spare Capacity, which can be filled later

Distributed Process Engrams

Engrams are 'design philosophies' adopted by different branches of the Distributed Process. They reflect how an NOI's hardware and software combine to give them complementary abilities and outlooks.


You must pick one engram as your Primary Engram

Your engrams must be in a set order, with the Primary Engram first

When crashed, you will lose your last engram first, then the previous one, etc

Your Primary Engram is the last engram you will lose after sustaining damage

If you lose your primary engram, you are dead

You may not remove or change your Primary Engram during downtime



The character sheet is a Google Drive sheet. The link below will take you to a short form you can use to register a character and create a sheet for you. We suggest you use a Gmail email address, or at minimum an address that google recongises and let you log into Drive with.

Immediately after you have submitted the form you will get an email from Draconas titled “New Pioneers Character Registered” with a link to your new character sheet. Draconas is a player, but he created the sheet for people, he cannot view your sheet unless you share it with him.

The first page of the sheet has instructions on how to fill it in, for both organic and NOI characters.

Once you have filled in faction, player name and character name, there is a blue button in the top right, when you click that it renames the sheet to FACTION - PLAYER - CHARACTER please click that as it makes it much easier for the refs to find your sheet.
