Rise of the Overlord
Every character in HackMaster has eight basic characteristics or abilities, most of these having corresponding ability scores: Strength, Intelligence, Wisdom, Dexterity, Constitution, Looks, Charisma and Honor. These building blocks provide the foundation of your character, but they are only the first glimpses of your character as he or she begins to develop in your imagination. These character abilities are described. Each description gives an idea of what that ability encompasses, including tables with specific game effects and modifiers.
Ability scores are used throughout the game. Most commonly during Ability Checks.
