Also, LadyDragonClaws/Kate notes the following:
While this isn't involved in character making, I just thought it would be useful to have a quick blurb on leveling up characters yourself if you choose to keep your sheets here:
Just pick primary and secondary stats (AKA attributes, MAG cannot be increased), roll d100 for each.
If the roll is less than (100 - [Stat*5]), primary increases.
If the roll is less than (50 - [Stat*5]), secondary increases.
Don't lie about your rolls, that's just lame.
Then they gain STA+1d6 HP,
([INT+MAG] / 2) +1d4 MP,
And 3+1d3 TP.
If STA is upped, they gain a retroactive +5 HP as a bonus. Adjust AT/PA, initiative, etc. as necessary.
Then they get WIS+3 skill points to use. You can't increase a skill further than the combined attributes beside it without making a roll (specifics detailed in the section on the site). Also, you can't up more than two ranks in a single skill per level. (I.e. You can increase Fire Magic from 5 to 7, but not 5 to 8).
