Skill Creation

We don’t want skills to be overpowered, so we will lay down our options and rules.  During our character creation session we will also create skills for ourselves.  To start off every character will have 2 Active Skills and 2 Passive skills on top of their weapon attacks.  Every 5 levels you get one more of each.  At each level you can choose one to enhance.  Passives could be a stat boost, an immunity or resistance, a personality trait, a luck roll or an always on buff or effect.

 

There are damage types as well as affinities that must be chosen as well.  Type and affinities all have pros and cons and all have strengths and weaknesses.  Types and affinities can also be associated with armor weapons and base attacks as well.  They can also yield effects as well.
