These three races are prone to attempting to kill one another.
The race articles give starter options for the character. They may then distribute 10 points around to increase their attributes (these count double if used on hp).
The game can be played in a variety of different settings, mainly starships and barren planets. The setting is chosen by the GM.
For the weapons available, please see AVP: Weapons.
Armours are on the race pages, along with items.
