Atomic RPG System characters that have a Balanced Focus are often Generalists, although a Balanced character can be of any Archetype.
Balanced Characters are Versatile
Unlike Devoted and Focused player characters, Balanced characters spread their abilities across all three of their Disciplines evenly.
Balanced characters can have many reasons to choose to be balanced, but usually it comes from a desire to do many different things well.
Balanced Character Power Points
Balanced characters in Atomic have the same base Power Pool Points in each of the three Disciplines they choose. The maximum points are going to be lower than the other character focuses can attain. The tradeoff is that Balanced characters end up having more total Power Points they can spend on Powers. However, these powers will ultimately be weaker than those of other character focuses.
Balanced characters are usually more adaptable to many different situations and have the Power Points available to make many powers that can help out in a wide variety of situations.
Choose a Character Focus of Balanced if you want your character to have many Powers across more Disciplines rather than having fewer, more powerful Powers.
Examples of Balanced Characters
Balanced characters should be built to handle a wide variety of situations. Here are a few examples:
These are just a few examples of Balanced focused characters, but there are many more combinations that can be used. A Balanced character is good at doing many things and is versatile enough to handle many different situations.
