Chapter 1Ability Scores & Races
For the sake of keeping in line with the OGL, I’ll be providing rules for ability score creation using the PointBuy method.In DBZ, characters often boast incredible raw physical strength, speed and endurance. This does notmean that they have pumped energy into their muscles tomake them stronger and faster. This is sometimes just rawnatural speed and strength. In a DBZ game setting,characters generally get 32 points to spend on their Abilityscores. However characters in the DBZ world can alsoincrease their physical abilities through intense training. If you’re making a level 1-10 character use only 32-45 pointsfor your attributes. However if your making a character who is above level 10, add 2-4 points for every level above10 that the character is.If your GM does not want to do this then just usethe rules found in the d20 Modern player’s handbook for rolling up your ability scores.
As I said earlier, there is a plethora of aliens and other races to be found in DBZ. (Such racesinclude: Humans, Kai’s, Humanoids, Saiyans, Namekkians, Ogers, Androids, and so on.) Most people onDBZ Earth are humans, or humanoids. There is no difference really between the two. Humanoids oftenhave animal like features or are nothing more than big talking and walking animals. In this world andsetting this is nothing strange.
It goes with out saying what humans are. They are the predominate species of Earth and exist on other planets through out the galaxy.
Technically they are like humans in every way only they are animals. Choose an animal from the d20Modern book (Dog, cat, Fox, etc.) If the animal has any specific racial feature like “scent” then thecharacter gains this as well.
Characters found in the D&D books can be brought into this setting. These races however would not beindigenes to Earth unless the GM has something else in mind. These races gain a +1 level adjustment for this setting. (This is easier than subtracting skill points for classes.) Any race that already has a leveladjustment gains an increase of 1.3
Broly, the Legendary Super Saiyan, is practically anunstoppable Juggernaut. He is a prime example of Saiyan endurance and strength.
