Determine Ability Scores

Hello adventurers of all shapes and sizes! Welcome to my guide and thank you so much for checking out the sixth step in the character creation series. Today we’re going to be taking a look at determining your ability scores which is kind of interesting because we have covered this in an earlier article to some extent but i’m just gonna walk you through the process at this stage in your characters creation just so moving forward you know you don’t have any mistakes. With that being said, let’s quickly get on to the steps to determination.

Steps To Determination

Step One: Double Check Your Work

Go through your ancestry, go through your background and go through your race and just make sure everything lines up the way it’s supposed to be in regards to boosts and flaws.

Step Two: Apply four more boosts

Now bear in mind this is no different than any of the other boosts you have added in the way that these boosts you can’t double down on them. In this step you can only have one boost per ability score for a maximum of four boosts if that makes sense.

Step Three: Record Scores And Modifiers

In this step you have to record your scores and modifiers in the ability score section. Most of you are gonna have already done this by this point and i get that but just double check, make sure everything’s filled out these numbers are incredibly important for gameply and for later steps as well. So just make sure everything checks out.
