Replicator Resources: Fantastic Focuses, Part 1

mccoyHow can you round out a player-generated character? By adding focuses that set them apart from other crew members.

One of my favorite things to do is point fans of Star Trek Adventures to amazing online resources to make gameplay easier. Here is a helpful tool built by the mysterious Mask of Romek, the provider of the Star Trek Adventures Resources and Scenarios website.

I have been given permission to repost a portion of the Focus/Value list the Mask of Romek meticulously gathered together to help those of us who get writer’s block during the character creation process.
