I seached the boards, so forgive me if this question has already been answered, but I wanted to verify my perception that the game seems to want most points at character creation to be spend on Characteristics. Is this right?
The biggest indicator were the pre-generated characters that come with the Beginner Game.
With the revelation, everything else seemed to snap into place, but I suppose my old thinking of balance between attributes and skills lead me to scratch my head some with EotE and the fact that Chracteristics don't go up after character creation. "But that means I'll be attrubute heavy," I'd say to myself. "That's wrong!"
So, if I'm on target, could someone confirm this? If I'm wrong, please set me straight.
