Aloofness is a better word.

Well we can assume that Palidan took Aloofness for hatred.

That removed my special distinction as an only Dwarf. To quote Cartman, "Butters, I'M the Dwarf!" stick out tongue

Seriously, though, good to have you aboard, Jazz!

I added +2 to to Strength as my 'profession' stat increase. Then I put +2 into Agility and +1 into each of Intelligenct and Presence for the add four to any non-profession stat.
Did I get it all right? The calculations for skills, rolls, and things?
Also, when the numbers are approved, I'll be writing a more detailed description and background, including a name change. (Had a cool idea last night as far as characterization goes.)

Ok, numbers look good. Just some things:

- Did you want any Secondary skills? THat's not a hunt, just that some people have said after creation that they didnt realise they could have them. Likewise Perception increases. it's much more clear in this version of creation than it used to be but I am still checking.

- You get an Adventurer bonus by level onto certain skills, remember

... and actually that's it. That's gone very well.

Would I get more secondary skill for free at my basic stat rating then? And I'll add in the adventurer bonus. Pretty smooth creation for me, I must be getting smarter. stick out tongue

It's actually going right now, just on hiatus until Ush wraps up Matrix and Star Wars.

Here's my Dwaf's bio. I have alterd what he will call himself, though his actual name has not changed.

Story:
Throdun, Son of Thredon is not your average Dwarf. For dwarves love to mine and make things, to walk along in their halls under their mountains. They care not of wandering about the world, meeting its myriad inhabitants nor adventuring merely for the joy of it. This Dwarf is a rare exception. At the young age of 70 he set forth from his home halls to meet the world’s inhabitants and find adventure wherever he could. He went shortly after the death of his father and without the blessing of his family. The only possessions he took with him were the axe of his father, his own small throwing hatchets and some leather armor. No money was in his purse.
Giving himself the name of Walker he travels where his whim or adventures take him. Though he set out with no fortune at all, he collects money from his adventures and any odd chores he can find people to give him. He turns up his nose at very few tasks and only takes what folks care to give him for his trouble, which is sometime naught at all. Walker is friendly to all he meets regardless of their heritage. However he will refuse to use or reveal his true name to anyone, even at time when this causes mistrust and suspicion. This bothers Walker not at all, for he ties himself to no being or no location. If he finds his welcome has cooled he moves on as happily as he arrived, though this has only happened rarely.

Sorry to double post, but I was looking over the Secondary Skill thing again. Are these just a handful of skills I may pick to 'round out' the character? I mean do I need to put any numbers behind them, and if so how? I'm thinking Walker is an occasional Gambler, and since he has done nothing but travel Middle Earth from an early age I thought that he needs something to represent what he may have learned out there. Something along the lines of a less-than-common knowledge of Geography, or maybe current events. I envision that if someone names some obscure village or settlement, Walker has probably been in or by it; or at least has heard something about it. That's a vague description for a skill, but I'd like to work that sort of knowledge in his character. Not going for a Gandalf level of omniscience, just something to show Walker's 'been around'.

Call it Culture and that's fine as a Secondary. Yes, though, you need to invest in it- any one of your normal skill increases you got at creation (or subsequenlt levels) can instead be used to increase a Secondary by two.

I'll take a point off of Stalk/Hide and a point off of One Handed Concussion Weapons to buy into Culture. Gambling doesn't seem to fit anyhow, and now I've got the premise behind culture down I really like it.

Right! Just overhauled the details of the numbers involved in skills and how you level up. It's matching the original very closely now; I don't think moving away from it helped.

Note that NONE of the actual rules of playing have changed; it's just how you arrive at the numbers, and in 99% of cases the numbers will be identical However, I've undone some tweaks I did to Animists and Mages so that might require some jiggery pokery from the appropriate people. I'll help out.

Or piggery jokery.

You may want to take a moment to look at the development point system. I've taken away your weapon skill (Mages get none in the original) but you can transfer points over from magical skills or those language points and invest them into weapons- that's generally recommended.
