Character creation is exactly as laid out in Savage Worlds Deluxe.
Unless you select a supernatural or arcane edge, you are considered a Vanilla Mortal with all the benefits and drawbacks associated with it.
|A Note on Balance
As you read the wiki, you may notice that the various forms of supernatural don’t balance in a straight line. This is purely intentional. Wizards take years of intense training to be become potent. Vampires benefit from near immortality and the ability to manipulate mortal pawn. Mortals have to find some way to stack the deck in their favor, luckily, they make up the vast majority of the world’s population.
