Check the Fate Core SRD for help coming up with your characters aspects. In Zeroed, we use a standard High Concept, Trouble, and Aspects 1-3. Since we already created characters we won’t do the Phase trio, instead just look at your back story to find 3 fitting Aspects.
Starting skills are selected on a (+4) pyramid – this gives you training in 10 skills. You choose one skill at +4, 2 at +3, and so on. After play begins, the “Pyramid” structure doesn’t need to remain – but “Columns” do – you cannot raise a skill to a higher level without one “underneath” it to support it. I.e. you can’t have 2 skills at +4 unless you already have 2 (different) skills at +3.
Also, +5 is the normal human maximum. To raise a skill beyond +5 is only possible with Cybernetic enhancement. Requisitions is exempt from this restriction.
You are all experts in your field, an meticulously assembled elite squad. As such your Power Level represents that – while still leaving room to grow.
You begin play with a Great skill pyramid – 4 skills at Average, 3 at Fair, 2 at Good, and 1 at Great.
You’ll have 4 starting refresh and 2 free stunts. In addition, we’ve reached 1 significant milestone at the time of conversion, so you gain one skill point.
