Attributes are your character’s innate capabilities: Prioritize the four attribute categories below with these descriptors: Exceptional, Superior, Good, and Average. You then assigned a score to the attributes within each attribute category; the scores one can assign to their attributes are determined by the descriptor assigned to the attribute category. These scores are listed in the following chart.
|Exceptional||4+, 3+, 3+, 2+|
|Superior||3+, 3+, 2+, 2|
|Good||3+, 2+, 2, 2|
|Average||2+, 2, 2, 2|
