The max level possible for all playable races (other than Gods or Demi-Gods) is 10. Level progression is based on a combo of time and experience. Below will be an Approximate level progress chart. All levels above 10 are reserved for Gods, Demi-Gods, and other Supernatural beings.
A Hero is someone who is favored by fate, destiny, or one of the Gods. Add this template to whatever race you choose. Instead of receiving 28 points for stats during character creation you receive 32. This is the Age of Heroes, do not be surprised to find heroes to be fairly common. Names of legend fall like rain in Classical Greece.
This campaign will be using a point buy system. The point total for those with the Hero Template above (like the players) is 32, while the stats for gifted but not quite heroic characters is 28, and all other NPC’s will have approximately average stats (all 10’s) . Use this Point Buy Calculator to determine your stats. (Use the bottom one)
- Average Stats = All 10’s (75% of Greek population)
- Gifted Stats = 28 point buy (20% of Greek population)
- Heroic Stats = 32 point buy (5% of Greek population)
Below is a table listing the penalties and benefits received from the process of aging. For your convenience the level associated with these ages are listed.
