  3. If applicable, roll to see if your character is psionic.
  4. Consult your approved O.C.C. and update your character sheet with the relevant abilities native to that class, record your chosen skills, note your chosen XP level (post as appropriate to the EP marketplace if anything other than 3rd level), and flesh out the other details related to your character such as name, alignment, description, sentiments, etc.

  10. Start looking at the Rifts groups and contacting the group leaders of those groups who have openings and in which you have some interest in joining.
