High Intelligence: in addition to knowing languages besides your own (Yes, Human is a language) you can roll a d20 and if the result is below your intelligence score you may figure out a hint or tip about a monster you are currently fighting or a trap you’re stuck in. Example: you are fighting a unknown kind of were-creature, a successfrul intelligence check gives you the knowledge that this were-tapir is vulnerable to acid and copper weapons. also influences your Willpower. Magic-Users have additional spells in their repertoire if their intelligence is high enough (13 at least)

High Wisdom: prevents against Mind damaging attacks/psionics. If your willpower drops to 2, you are considered stark raving mad and can’t play the character anymore (GM control).
