A character in the West Marches has six stats that represent the natural talents and raw abilities of a character. While stats are rarely checked using just their stats, these attributes effect every aspect of a character's skills and abilities. Each stat ranges from 1 to 5, with characters having 10 points to spend on stats in character generation and being able to raise stats later with experience.
