Disclaimer: This is a WIP, subjective, and not at all professional guide on how to get started on Bay as a member of the Fleet. It's also mostly about how I play my own crewman, Sally Walker, so you might disagree with it at some parts.

Creating your Fleet Character

Alright, let's get this started!

Concept

Before you do anything, stop for a moment, and think about why your character had joined the Fleet. There are more players than you'd think whose character is just a member of the Fleet. When they are asked about the reason, they freeze up. When they are in a dangerous/complicated situation, they have no idea how to act.

You don't need a full background story at this point. Just find a concept. Did they join because they didn't have money? They wanted to make a difference? They were inspired by its recruiting campaign? They just wanted to shoot aliens but found the Exploration Corps lame?

Believe it or not, a single line of concept can help you get started more than any crash course in RP (though they are definitely helpful too).
