Twelve Dot Spread
Classic Attribute generation follows the standard 5/4/3 pattern. This method alters that system by combining all 12 dots into a single pool. You may place the dots in whichever Attributes you choose, but no Attribute can be raised above four. Use of this option allows for even more specialized characters than the standard method and includes the potential for playing characters that are decidedly below average in some areas or average in all of them. This isn’t entirely unrealistic. Plenty of people are highly intelligent, yet lack force of will or a developed physique. In fact, this option can aid in the creation of a character’s story. Why exactly does your character have a Strength of four and a Dexterity of one? Injury, perhaps? Too much time spent on strength training and not enough on flexibility? That guy you see walking out of a gym with abs of steel and no neck, yet can’t manage to scratch his own back, is a good example of this.
