    Notes

    As seen on page 162 of Wild Talents Second Edition, this generator rolls a pool of 9d10 to automatically create a complete 250-point character with stats, skills and superpowers. Stats and powers that add up to greater than 10 dice automatically have some of them converted to wiggle dice to keep the pools to 10 dice or fewer.

    Background and Blueness: Each "loose" or unmatched die indicates one background event keyed to the Wild Talents "Blue" level of the campaign -- the degree of "lovely and pointless" comic-book craziness featured in your game world. Since we don't know the "Blue" level of your campaign, the script generates a random "Blue" level for each background event. About half are at "Blue" 1, which indicates jobs the character has held; a few are at the more exotic but still mundane "Blue" 3-4 level; a very few are at the outre "Blue" 5.

    Archetype: For now you'll need to build the archetype by hand. If you need more points for permissions, shave a few points off stats or skills.
