Attributes

From Star Traders Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Attributes are a measure of the innate characteristics of a given crew member, including the Captain and Officers. Attributes are assigned to a character when they are created and may range between 8 and 30. These attributes do not change over the course of a character's life except in the case of Trait Mutation. This is because base Attribute points may receive a boost from various traits which augment a character's final Attribute level, even pushing it beyond 30. The total number of Attribute points may vary between different characters, making certain crew members innately more powerful than others.

Attributes help in determining many aspects of a Character, such as their Hit Points and Morale Points. These are explained under specific Attributes below. The Captain's Attributes also play a role in many of the tests involved in Spying, Exploring, Patrolling, Blockading, accessing the Black Market and completing Missions. In these situations only the Captain's attributes are tested. Unlike skills, there are no attribute pools or places where crew attributes are used outside of determining each crew member's individual properties.

The only character whose attributes can be manually determined are the Captain's. This is done using the Character Template Creator. Depending on the priority given to Attributes, a player can determine the exact Attributes of the Captain within certain ranges. Since Attributes do not change over the course of a game, assigning them priority "A" provides the most long-term advantage even though it may make the early game more difficult as the top priority is taken from more immediately helpful aspects of character creation.
