Attributes
Figure 1. Attributes of the main character

All attributes start at 50% and cannot go above 100% or beyond 10%. When an attribute is used (through its associated skills, see Section 1.3, “Skills”), it is enhanced and its two opposed attributes are reduced. The siblings attributes are unchanged. More precisely, if an attribute receives \(x\) points, then \(\frac{x}{2}\) points are taken from its two opposed attributes. As a consequence, the total points for all the attributes remains the same: 250%.
