In regards to Racial Bonuses

Postby Rowan Brightmoor on December 7th, 2017, 1:22 pm

So I'm aware that the racial bonus points have to be put into one skill but I'm a bit confused on the rules of allocation. Do I have to put the RB points into a skill my character has points in already, or could I put them into a new skill? For example, if my character has three skills with points in them, would I have to put the RB points into one of the three or could I put them into a fourth skill that has no points?

They must go into the specific skill the race gets a racial bonus in unless you're human. Then they can go into any one skill. You cannot divide them up. Some races give you a choice between two...and you pick which one fits your pc better.

Sorry, I guess I didn't explain well enough. I'm making a human so I know that I can put the points into any one skill of my choosing but I was trying to find out whether it had to be a skill I already had points in. Let's say my character had these three skills:

Persuasion 15

Riding 10

Brawling 5

Would I have to put the RB points into one of my character's existing skills, like one the above examples? Or would I be able to put the RB points into a new skill my character didn't have yet? Also thanks for your response. I kinda figured I couldn't split up the RB points but your clarification was helpful.

You can put it in any skill. So one of those or any other. Pulren started with 15 from starting package and 15 from racial bonus in swimming to start with 30. So say your persuasion could be 30 by separating 15 sp and 15 rb. Or you could put 15 in something completely different.

Thanks for the response. I just wasn't sure if I could have a skill that only had the RB points but you've cleared that up for me.
