Trained Traits

Trained Traits

Trained Traits are a part of the leveling mechanic used in The FARAD System. Once an entity such as a player character increases by a level, they are able to gain a Training Point to spend on each of the four categories of trained traits: Combat, General, Knowledge and Vocational. These points may be spent to bolster previous training, expand into new areas, or banked until another level. However, should a character die, they will have a reduction in that TP bank, same as their bank for XP types and Ability Points.
