CharGen (short for Character Generation, also referred to on GarouMUSH as 'Birthplace' or 'BP') is not a global command, per se, but the process through which every character on the game goes through to assign starting stats to that character. This information (and the information contained in "+help chargen" on the MUSH) documents some of the Birthplace idiosyncrasies regarding starting statistics points available to be assigned out that players should expect going into CharGen on GarouMUSH.

Please note that the information contained here does not include Foil characters. Additionally, not all listed below are available through standard CharGen. Please speak with your reg-wiz with any questions you may have and reference our New Applicant FAQ and Accepted Character Concepts for detailed information on what is and is not accepted through CharGen.

Rank 0 (Cub) Starting Stats Edit

Attributes: (Physical/Social/Mental) 6/4/3, assigned in whatever priority you choose, and assigned out in each category as you choose. NOTE: Cubs receive two (2) more Attribute points to assign out after a successfully completed Rite of Passage.

Secondary Attributes:

Willpower:
Black Furies, Fianna, Get of Fenris, Glass Walkers, Red Talons, Shadow Lords, Silent Striders, Silver Fangs, Uktena = 3
Bone Gnawers, Children of Gaia, Wendigo = 4
Stargazer = 5
Lost Cubs = 3
Gnosis:
Human = 1
Metis = 3
Lupus = 5
Rage:
Ragabash = 1
Theurge = 2
Philodox = 3
Galliard = 4
Ahroun = 5

Backgrounds: 5 points to spend, available backgrounds dependent on tribe, again according to WtA 2nd ed. The actual BP room will list Backgrounds available to your character's particular Tribe. NOTE: The "Fetish" background must be approved with the -reg wiz before going IC. Cubs may not start with the "Rites" Background, as they do not come on-grid with rituals. Lost Cubs additionally may not take "Mentor".

Gifts: One Gift each from Rank 1 tribe, breed, and auspice Gifts (3 total), except for Lost Cubs, who cannot take a Tribal Gift until after/during their Rite of Passage. NOTE: Although Cubs choose their Gifts during CharGen, they will not be immediately available for use In Character (IC). One Gift, either breed or auspice, can be learned from a spirit when a cub is close to their Rite of Passage if the cub's Tribal Elder or mentor seeks a spirit to teach the cub. Cubs cannot ask spirits to teach a Gift to them on their own; an adult Garou much aid them.
