#2016 closed change (wontfix)

Change default starting stats?

I looked at the character, and decided no. It's just too tedious starting with bad CON and a lot of useless DEX for a full caster. (Melee is useless until you have reasonable HP.) It clearly uses the default starting stats, which shortchanges CON badly. For full casters, recommend using 16-17 STR/MAG (magic) and even DEX/CON for remaining points, favoring CON. For half casters, reverse DEX and MAG, favoring DEX. That'll keep everyone reasonably happy. Thus:

Warrior 17 16 16 0*
Half-caster 17 16 14 12*
Full-caster 16 12 14 17

or 16 STR, 17 DEX, if that gives better melee with a dagger.

I'm inclined to think that the default is at least moderately sensible, and that changing the default stats at character birth is not too large an overhead for the player.
