All players will recieve 75 character points which can be spent on anything
you like, 50 points which can only be spent on packages or the Special
Auctions, and a free Basic Package. If this isn't enough, check out the Contribution rules, which can get you extra points. You can sell down attributes, if you're feeling suicidal.
There is no attribute auction. Just spend your 75 (+30) points
however you want on attributes; many packages and auction items will then modify them.. Points from sold down attributes can be added to the 75 point pool or to the 50 point Auction Pool.
