Standard Point BuyEdit
All ability scores start at 8. Take 25 points to spread out among all abilities. For ability scores of 14 or lower, you buy additional points on a 1-for-1 basis. For ability scores higher than 14, it costs a little more (see the table below). This method allows for maximum customization, but you should expect each PC to have at least one really good score.

|Type of Campaign||Points Allowed|
|Low-powered campaign||15 points|
|Challenging campaign||22 points|
