Characters are defined by ability scores. There are six ability scores in the game:

  • Strength — represents a character’s physical might,
  • Dexterity — represents agility and the ability to avoid danger,
  • Constitution — indicates a character’s overall health and well-being,
  • Intelligence — represents raw knowledge and problem-solving ability,
  • Wisdom — measures a character’s insight and the ability to evaluate a situation,
  • Charisma — indicates charm, persuasiveness, and the force of personality.
