Character  build
 New System: POD system ( My system TM) and all od that.

Abilities :

 abilities  are, the   determination  on how  well you can do something. These numbers  a represented in points. The use of abilities  will  ..ADD.. all abilities  needed for that roll and  divide  by the Number  of  Abilities. (  IE:  You use  ST, SP  and STA.. yuou add them, divide by 3)  this  gives you   your  Mod for the roll


 spheres  are  refined  areas  you  train and focus   on... spheres  are 'bonus  Mods'.. you add the numbers  of the sphere points and take  1/4 that number..that Give you an  extra  mod.

(  IE:   You are in a  fight.. your  use Attack  and  weapon  skills.. and take  1/4 that  number  to add to the roll )


 Lefty is  fighting.. he has ST  10...STA  12..SP 14..give him a total of 36  his  mod  for abilities is  12

 for this fight, I pick his  ATTACK and  WEAPON SKILL... spehers.. lets  say each  is   10..that   would be take  1/4 of that  for 5

 total Mod  for  Lefty this  roll is  17.... a 1d100 is  rolled  at +17 added


Dice Rolls

I do most the Dice  rolls, this  keeps the  game  free of  'numbers' as you RP

there  would be  2  reasons   for Dice  rolls..

  Combat..... where you must  beat the  enemies   roll

  Task...… where you must reach a  number to be successful

There   are  2 reasons i would have a player  roll.

 1... if  I rolled  very badly and I want the player   to have a chance to  save  the  charcter

2... a 'crossroad's, of  sorts , that  is important to a plot/subsplot/Minorplot  ect..this  keeps the game fresh for me as well as the players


 Character Skills:

 these are skills your character has learned over the years... weapons..or day to day things...

 once you start in the game, your skills  are set... for you  to 'learn new ones' you ask me in PM  if  we agree,  then  it  must be  'worked on' IC...

Example:  Kree  can't   drive a wagon.. But I want him to  be able to? so through the   course of the  game, he might   ride  with a  wainwright , or practice in a Village..nothing   just  'pops up" !

 Fighters: Warriors

           Holy Warriors


Mage      Spellcaster


          War Priest

Rogues:   Thief

NOTE:  You may Mix  ...any two classes..hopwever...your character ( for the sake of balance) will have to contend with the failing s of each...A Warrior/Mage won't be able to cast as High spells...Nor will he  be  able to wear heavy armor, or use heavier  weapons...ect ect.
