6:  Adjust Scores for Race
  Adjust scores for race.  Roll percentages for fighter and cavalier classes.  Adjust comeliness for charisma.  Under the MyWorld rules, Players Handbook(tm) and Unearthed Arcana(tm) racial adjustments, printed in italics, are optional:  players may opt to take all or none of the adjustments indicated.  Hengeyokai adjustments are mandatory, but racial (not class) minimums and maximums are considered to be met if the scores are within stated limits either before or after the adjustments are made.  These are the score adjustments:

  Fighters and all fighter sub-classes and any Cavalier sub-classes who roll an 18 Strength are permitted/required to roll d100 to establish extraordinary strength.
  Cavaliers and Paladins must in any event roll d100 for fractional improvement on Strength, Constitution, and Dexterity.  Paladins must also roll fractional improvement for Charisma.

  Comeliness must be adjusted by Charisma.  This is in addition to the comeliness adjustment for Race, and modifies both actual and effective comeliness scores.  Character races with an effective Charisma which differs from actual charisma (dwarfs) have actual comeliness adjusted by actual charisma, and effective comeliness adjusted by effective charisma.  Adjustments are:

The best new role playing game....

The Multiverser Information Center
The complexity of creating a D&D character always reminds me of how much simpler it is to play
Multiverser®, the game which incorporates all other games, all other worlds, everything imaginable, with nothing else to buy.

A consideration of time travel....

Temporal Anomalies in Popular Movies
There are enough time travel films out there now that most of the things which could go wrong in time have been shown on the silver screen.  This page applies a new conception of how time works (discussed in the
Multiverser® game system to help referees sort out game scenarios in which player characters travel in time) to unraveling the most popular of such movies.  An Event Horizon Hot Spot and Sci Fi Weekly Site of the Week which has won the author national recognition as an authority on time travel in fiction.
