As an example, there once was an adventurer named Yorik. He was the orphaned farmhand in Berkshireby. He tended the cows but dreamed of traveling to distant lands and becoming a famous adventurer. Each day he would save his wages and practice fighting moves in the fields. He grew stronger each summer until one day he decided to leave the farm in Berkshireby. He had his life savings with him as he went to town and bought an old wooden buckler shield and a long knife. With shield and knife in hand he was ready to see where the road would take him.
Yorik had started with a Move of 5, Attack of 0, and Defend of 0. He rolled a 3 (1d6) in Character Points points to customize his character. Yorik focused on fighting moves, he did not spend as much time working on his defensive moves or even getting much exercise. Yorik moves 2 from Move and 1 from Defend to give him +3 in Attack and -1 Defend and 3 Move.
