Player Characters: New Rules

Miscellaneous Rules and Clarifications for Player Characters

Questions arise. We’re here to resolve them. Check out these little bits that have caused a few theoretical arguments in the past.

Hatred of Evil (Revision)

Hatred of Evil has always been a bit confusing since the text on page 60 of the AMM does not match the DL chart. And since +5 / +5 is a bit too much of a bonus, here is a revised chart.

Hatred of Evil Damage Weapon skill
1
2 +1
3 +1 +1
4 +1 +1
5 +2 +1
6 +2 +1
7 +2 +2
8 +2 +2
9 +3 +2
10 +3 +3

Righteously Mingle with Evil (Change)

Because of the change in Solo Battle, SB must be replaced with Self Control in the Righteously Mingle with Evil equation, so that it is now

RME= (LIS + SC + RT + GE + 2HE + KI)/7 .

Sword of the Spirit Growth Chart (New)

This chart will slow the character progression so that the players will have more time at each WordRune Level, hence more practice with the WordRunes. This will not slow growth of Character Strengths since a flat 30 Maturity Units will be required to gain a higher level in those. This chart assumes 20 of each level of WordRune will be recited, though in practice, players will probably use more lower level WordRunes to make up the difference.

M.U.s needed=20*(next SS level)

Maturity Units Needed to Advance to the Next SS Level

Sword Spirit M.U.s needed Total M.U.s
1 0 0–39
2 40 40–99
3 60 100–179
4 80 180–279
5 100 280–400
6 120 400–539
7 140 540–699
8 160 700–879
9 180 880–2079
