The Pawns of Al Rodel
We will not be rolling stats, or doing a point buy system. The reasons for the first is so that unlucky players are not put at a disadvantage during character creation because of bad rolls. Also so my players who always get ridiculous rolls, don’t gain an advantage. Originally I was going to do point buy, but I know some players have the tendency to be tempted to min max. I know these players do their best not to but I figured it would be best to avoid giving the temptation in the first place. Point buy can also be confusing for newer players, and so I also wanted to avoid this.
My solution is to have a pre arrangement of stats which each player can allocate how they wish for their character abilities. These stats are of course the ability scores pre racial adjustments.
The Score Numbers Are:
I know some people may be upset by this, but I don’t want to hear it. These stats are above average, and I decided to avoid any negative mod numbers. If this truly is a grievance you feel you have to bring up with me, I’ll save you the trouble and tell you now to just leave the table. In no way am I trying to be unfair, and the point of this decision is simply to keep the playing field as level for all players as possible.
