Characteristics Point Redistribution


Recommended Posts

To me, the rule on p. 16 about characteristic point redistribution that reads, "If you wish, redistribute up to 3 points between your characteristics." might have different interpretations. Assuming a hypothetical character with 10 in all characteristics, which of the following is true:

  1. I can have an INT 13 character by taking 2 points from STR and 1 point from CON. No more redistribution can happen because 3 points have been transferred.
  2. I can make a STR 19 character by taking 3 points each from INT, APP, DEX. As long as I'm not shifting more than 3 points out of any characteristic it's fine.
  3. Multiple characteristics can be higher than 10 but no characteristic can be greater than 13 nor lower than 7.

I've always run and played (back to early 90s with Elric! where you could only boost Pow in such a way) upto 3 points from any ONE characteristic to any other ONE characteristic.

Re-reading the rules, I'm not quite sure why so strict an interpretation.

Rule Zero: Don't be on fire
