Stats

Stats, sometimes called Ability Scores, are numbers used to represent a character’s strengths and weaknesses along a spectrum.

In Dungeons & Dragons, the classic six stats are Strength, Dexterity, Constitution, Intelligence, Wisdom and Charisma.

Stats are often used in connection with Risk Resolution, such as with a d20 Over Stat or a d20 Under Stat.

Stats can be improved by increasing a character’s Experience Points, either by increasing in level or via an XP purchase system.

The initial values for each tend to be set by rolling dice, Point Buy or Stat Array.

In some systems, stats absorb harm via [[Stat_Reduction?]].
