Design Example Race: Foobar

First, we should give a short description:

Description:
The Foobars are an example race, that only life to show readers how to design a race.
The second step is the determination of Attributes. Since Foobars are a little more intelligent than Humans, they have an INT of 35, but their CON is only 10, because they never live long. We only give the attributes, that are different from the average of 30. The cost a are 5 for INT minus 20 for CON, so the cost for a=5-20=-15

Attributes:
INT 35, CON 20
The next step are the skills: Foobars only have Computer skills, which are Computer Programming and Computer Operation.

The total cost for skills are s=s1+s2=9. So we can now fill in the skill category:

Skills:
Computer Operation(3), Computer Programming(2)
We do not give these poor creatures any traits or powers.

Traits:
none (t=0)
Powers:
none (p=0)
The last step is the calculation of the cost. The CP costs are a+s+p-t=-15+9+0+0.

Costs:
-6
