The Breadth of Life
12 dots to Attributes (nothing over 4, start with 1 in each)
22 dots to Skills (nothing over 3)
Attributes: 5/4/3, start with 1 in each
Buying the 5th dot in anything costs two dots instead of one.
I want you to have more flexibility in how you design your characters.
I want to encourage diversification of skill points.
+1 Free Appearance Speciality
3 free Skill specialties.
There is no longer an Appearance Attribute. In RAW, there is only really the Striking Looks Merit for appearance mechanics.
I’d like something on the sheet to represent a detail of your appearance without forcing you to spend one of your default 3 specialties on it, so I’m giving you a free extra specialty to spend on just this.
Fighting Style Merits are banned.
They’re unbalanced in RAW.
