I have been thinking of a skill point system based around using all stats rather than just intelligence and wondered what you all might think. This is not a proposed change to the skill system itself but rather to the way skill points are calculated for characters at each level.

I have thought of a couple versions but here is the one I am currently considering...

1. Separate stats into physical (str/dex/con) and mental (int/wis/cha).

2. Total the stat modifiers for each category

3. Give the character that number of skill points to be spent on skills whose primary attribute is in the same category. If the total for a category is negative, they get no points for that category.

4. Classes that typically get 2+int or 4+int, get 1 bonus point to spend on any skill. Classes that get 6+int, get 2 bonus points and those with 8+int get 3 bonus points.

Class Skills and all other restrictions / rules still apply.

Examples (25 pt. buy):

Bob the Fighter with S18/C16/D12/I7/W13/C7 gets 8 points for physical skills, 0 points for mental skills and 1 bonus point for any skill.

Joe the Wizard with S7/C14/D14/I18/W14/C7 gets 2 points for physical skills, 4 points for mental skills and 1 bonus point for any skill.

Bill the Rogue with S8/C14/D18/I12/W11/C12 gets 5 points for physical skills, 2 points for mental skills and 3 bonus points for any skills.
