Character Points (CP) are the points earned at each Experience Level that can be used to add to or increase a Player's, Statistics, Skills, Learned Spells, and/or Learned Degrees.

The player starts with 5 CP at the start of the game at level 1. They then earn 1 more CP per each level of Experience, with a bonus CP given at each Experience Level divisible by 5 (5, 10, 15, 20, etc). As the player's experience level cap is 50, the amount of CP that can be earned and used are limited to 64 points total.

Once a CPs has been used, it cannot be undone.

CPs can only be used on something if the minimum requirements to increase it are met.

Use of CPs on something is also subject to Character Race and Character background
