    Generating Ability Scores

    Each character starts with 10 in each ability score. Racial modifiers are then added to adjust this base.
    Finally, the player may disturbed 12 ability score points among any ability scores they desire on a one for one basis, with all ability scores capped at 16.
    DM desiring a more high powered game may wish to expand this cap to 18 or even 20, in which case it's advised to increase the number of ability score points given to 16 or 20.

    Improving Ability Scores

    At 4th, 8th, 12th, 16th and 20th level you may increase four ability scores by +1, or two abilities scores by +2, or one ability score by +2 and two ability scores by +1. You make the choice of how to allocate your points each time you have the opportunity to increase your ability scores. An ability score may never be higher than 20.

    Innnnteresting. Too many changes for me to comment on, but a lot that make sense (Armour Proficiency in particular). May I ask why the debuff to the skill feats (Alertness etc.)? If anything I'd have expected an increase in their power, but now they no longer stack if you have a bonus from your race.

    It really came down to the fact that one of my goals was to clean up the bonus types, and make it so that certain races didn't feel mandatory for certain specializations. My thought process here was 'I'm going to have to take a second pass at these anyways when I compare them to the updated skills, might as well fix the system problem I can address now and worry about the power-level problem later.'

    Ah I see. Will you be granting the skill feats as bonus feats to those races (e.g. Alertness for elves)?

    If I keep them around the same low power level, I'll probably group them all under a tag such as [Skill], and hand them out as bonus feats depending on race (under this solution the first thing that comes to mind is that they also immediately and retroactively make the chosen skills class skills and maaaybe provide free ranks for them). If I increase their power level, then it'll be in a way that gives them something desirable enough that you can overlook the fact that one or more +2 overlaps with your racial bonuses (such as making them similar to skill mastery, where you can take 10 in stressful situations). Currently, I'm undecided as to what their place in the big picture will be, a lot of the system is interdependent off of itself, so it'll take a few passes for them to find the right place.

    Added the commoner, might flesh out other NPC class doodles later on, got a lot of projects to work on.

    Edit: Just realized that was half-finished. Sorry I'm pretty woozy right now. Give me a minute and I'll post it along with the other NPC class I'm working on: Fighter.
    Edit: Fighter and Commoner should now be in an understandable state.
