Crowns of Blood: Chargen (Part 4)

[continued from here; getting close to the end, now!]

PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE

As determined waaaay back in Personal Data, your character will be somewhere between the age of 16 and 21. For each year of your adult life (i.e. starting with age 16) you may choose one of the following three options:

  1. Roll D6 and distribute that number of points among those skills already possessed. Remember that a combat trained character possesses all weapon skills, but most of these probably have a score of "0." No skill may be raised above 15 with this additional training.
  2. Add one (1) to any single personality trait, passion, or skill. This point may increase the value above 15, though no more than 19 (in the case of traits) or 20 (in the case of skills). If the skill is a non-combat skill, it may not be raised above a character's INT score.
  3. Add one (1) point to any single statistic. This may not take a stat over its culture adjusted maximum. SIZ may not be increased after age 21. STR, DEX, CON, and APP may not me increased after age 35.

OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION

1. Starting Glory

Your character's starting Glory is determined by rolling 1D6 for every year of your adult life, beginning at age 16 (so your starting character will roll from 1D6 to 6D6 to determine starting Glory). You also inherit 10% of your parents' Glory (5% if your character is a bastard), but this will be determined in a subsequent section. However, you can add the following bonuses immediately, if they apply:

Character is a bastard that was legitimized: add +100 Glory
Character's father "took the Black:" add +100 Glory
Character is Targaryen: add +150 Glory

Valyrian daggers don't break.
2. Luck Benefits

Your character is allowed to roll once on the Luck table. If your father was a Minor House lord, you may roll twice on the Luck table; if your father was a Great House lord, you may roll thrice.

3. Determine Equipment

Starting equipment is determined by character's culture and social class. Fosterlings may choose to be equipped as per their foster family. To find the foster family's social class, roll D20 on the "father's social class" table (Step 3 of the Personal Data section) and add +10 to the result.

Knightly classes have equipment listed by "outfit." Only first and second born (natural) sons are afforded full kit. Later sons, bastards, and fosterlings treat their outfit as one step lower (though never worse than #1). Daughters who wish to go to war receive full kit, provided their family has no sons of the proper age; otherwise, they likewise treat their outfit as one step lower. Women of Dorne are not subject to this rule, having all the rights and responsibilities of sons.

If a first or second born son decides to forgo his rights (or is killed, crippled, becomes a maester, etc.),  his outfit is passed on to the next most eligible person. A non-combatant daughter, may choose to give her rightful gear to her husband (assuming it is better outfitting than his status would otherwise warrant).

1 gold dragon is worth 200 silver stags. 1 silver stag is worth 7 copper stars.

Boiled leather armor + open helm (6 points)
Arming sword or other one-handed weapon, dagger, clothing worth 20 silver stags.

A sand steed may not be ridden in battle with armor heavier than Dornish (reinforced) chain mail.
