    I've been looking over a lot of statcheets and it strikes me that nearly all of them are lower than they should be. Stats totals as well as single stats (where a race is locked into investing a certain amount of points per level) do not make sense as it stands, they are too low. So I was thinking, you can train stats higher, is it possible that by not using skills, stats or gaining more exp you start to deteriorate? That you need to use it or lose it?

    You probably won't lose it all, but you grow rusty so to speak.

    I think it’s more likely that AK just doesn’t do the math when making a new character’s stats.

    Everyone also doesn't start out at 10s across the board, makes it easier to fudge the numbers.

    Quite likely #ShoutLoud, after all that's why the Imp called him a Basic B****h, because all his Stats where 10. It's likely that some people have less or more then others and of course due to Star gains and losses due to injuries and exercise/worl, ect.

    Don't forget that stats for different races do more or less depending on the use or skill.

    Might explain some, but there are some that just don't make sense. Even if they started at zero.

    Send an email to Aleron. Maybe an educational video of how you can link Word and Excel and nifty things a spreadsheet can do.

    I'd do it for free. No questions asked.

    I could always use a project for my free time anyway.

    Just ask or show him your spreadsheet. Maybe go through one of his assistants, unless he responds personally. I use to get him through messenger, but not for a while.

    If someone can figure out how to convert the Kindle Edition to a word document (i haven't tried yet), we could annotate or review the thing together. Plus link our/a spreadsheet(s). Richtær uses word, so you would be able to "share" and he can use the comparison features of word to look through it if need be.
