Default Re: Stats For Students

Not to open a can of worms but "point wise" I always considered 0 the "baseline "even if this was different than the "regular adult human".
In this case for example y would have considered every "base student" as a 0 point, ignoring the fact that they would no be as "capable" as adults. Same for skills, its level is intended within the context of the campaign: so, for example for me it's legit for an "Hermione" to have Research at 17 or an "Eren" with sword at 20 even if realistically they could not have the time to develop the skill to that level.

In the end it's all a matter of the scope of the adventure: if the PC are "sealed" in their worlds there is no need in descending into minutiae like the "Real World".
A strange game. The only winning move is not to play. How about a nice game of chess?
