Resolve points and leveling


Rules Questions


Do you get any resolve points when leveling? Or is it only when your key ability score changes?

Yes you do.

You have a number of Resolve Points equal to half your character
level (rounded down, but minimum 1) + the modifier of your key
ability score (the ability score that is most important to your
class—see page 58). Even if you have a negative modifier, you
always have at least 1 Resolve Point.


Resolve points are equal to half the character level (min 1) plus the ability bonus of the primary ability score. One Resolve point is gained at level 4 and every two levels thereafter.


Thanks! Not sure how I missed that before

So what happens if I'm a 1st-level dwarf solarion with 8 Charisma?

Do I have 1 resolve? Or 0 resolve?


1 resolve.

Even if you have a negative modifier, you always have at least 1 Resolve Point.

Okay. The way Drejk described it, it sounded like the minimum 1 bit came before the ability modifier, not after.

In this case you get fired as a character builder!

Never got paid anyways.


The big thing I noticed is that since it's rounded down, you won't get your first resolve point from levels until level 4. yikes!


True, but you also have likely 3-5 resolve at level 1, and you level fairly quickly, from what I can tell from the first AP. Shouldnt be much of an issue.
