Tailoring PC/NPC Aptitudes
The following are modifications that I use in my campaign, posted FYI and
comment. The premise is that nonhumans have various aptitudes and
weaknesses relative to the human norm assumed in action resolution checks,
and that particular attributes and proficiencies (I use the Skills and
Powers rules) may further modify character's aptitudes.
Actions through Lieutenants are modified by the Lieutenant's skills etc.,
but a Lieutenant's skills do not apply to general realm managment or actions
taken by Regent.
Dwarves (good engineers, fiscally sound, inclined against generosity with
funds and sneakiness): +1 to Build, Fortify, # of GB affected by Finances.
- -1 to Espionage, Grant.
Elves (poetic, emotional, sneaky; not financially oriented and somewhat
undisciplined): +2 to Agitate, Diplomacy, +1 Espionage. -1 to
Create/Contest/Rule Province/Law/Guild, Trade Route, # GB affected by Finances.
Goblins (good builders, not very personable): +1 Build, Fortify, -1
Halflings (personable, good merchants, not oriented to violence or
sneakiness [a campaign specific halfling trait]): +1 to Agitate (positive),
Create/Contest/Rule Guild. -1 to Create/Contest/Rule Law, Espionage.
