Descriptors provide a summary of your non-average attributes for ease of use in play. The DM will generally want you to describe your player using your descriptors at the start of each session.
The descriptors for each attribute are:
|Attribute||High Descriptor||Low descriptor|
For determining descriptors, you get a bonus to the primary and secondary attributes of your class: this does not change your actual score. The primary attribute for your class is counted as +3 to your rolled score, and your class' secondary attribute is counted at +2 to your score.
For the three standard classes:
|Class||Prime Attribute||Secondary Attribute|
So for each of your attribute scores, consult the below table:
|Attribute||Extraordinarily Low||Low Descriptor||No descriptor||High Descriptor||Extraordinarily High|
|Primary||NA||3-7 (and is also high)||NA||8-12||13-18|
For example, a Magic-User with the following stats would have these descriptors and describe herself as, "Ivana, who is dim and bright, extraordinarily foolish, and tough."
Ivana the Idiot-Savant
|I||5||dim and bright|
