Here at RumbleStreet, we have two types of PCs. This will help you understand the differences between the two.

While we recommend you start with a secondary character, it is not mandatory. But remember, Primaries will require more details, a solid backstory, and the first draft of a character sheet before social approval will be granted. Creating a secondary character first will often get you socially approved quicker. It also lets you save the special bonuses of a primary for when you know more about the setting and really want to try something more special.

Why do Primaries get so many points?

Primaries are intended to create a concept you've always wanted to try but would take forever to earn the xp for. Or, to recreate a beloved previously played character as faithfully as possible. The extra points represent you have seen and done a lot, and have something to show for it. You do not need to use every freebie point if you feel it is too much.

 

Why play Secondaries at all?

Secondaries still get more freebies than a by-the-book starting character, and are by no means helpless. These are characters with a lot of potential for growth, and as such they do gain XP at a higher rate. You will find them very rewarding as they grow with the story of the channel. Again, if you feel there are too many points, you don't need to use them all.
