  • Character Creation Skills and linked Attributes

    Hey-o.

    Say you are creating a character, and your Attributes are d6s across the board. You go to distribute your skill points, and you want to make Fighting or whatever a d8, but don't want to pay 2 points for that last die type.

    Can you jump ahead in the process so you select your hindrances and then spend 2 hindrance points increasing an attribute so as to purchase skills at the cheaper price? Or do you have to spend all 15 skill points before moving on to the 'next' step?

    The "order" just covers the different aspects of character creation, no effect is absolute until the entire process is finished. So if an Attribute is increased from Hindrances, then any linked skills cost less to reach the new die type and if already spent, the character gains any such points back to use some other way.

    Hope that helps.
