The Windward Coast
Characters will be built on 150 pts and will be allowed up to 75 pts in disadvantages, including 5 quirks. The total amount of disadvantages doesn’t necessarily have to be taken. One Upbringing template must be selected from Fisherman, Labourer/Farmer, Trapper/Hunter, or Trader. These templates reflect the general focus of that portion of the characters’ lives and the skills they pick up during their daily duties.
To also reflect their upbringing in a peaceful community it is not recommended that any character have more than 1 point in any one combat skill. The training just isn’t there for most young people. The sole exception for this is the Trapper/Hunter upbringing which can put 2 points into each of Bow and Spear.
The kingdom of Laurentia is also a medieval society where education is far from universal. As such, literacy for the King’s Tongue will need to be paid for and all characters are illiterate by default.
