A Broken Sky
Ora has a lot of new content—new races, classes, and so on—that will be described in the appropriate sections. It also has some major mechanical changes in the pages addressing those topics. Here is a collection of minor tweaks and clarifications which you will want to make note of as you make your character.
—Changes in Intelligence apply retroactively, just like changes in Constitution.
—After level 1, characters receive their class’s average HP per level rounded up.
—Characters do not receive 4x skill points at level 1. Instead, Characters receive 3 free ranks in every skill which is a class skill for any of their classes.
—Cross-class skills are purchased at the normal rather than double price; the max rank is still halved.
—Any feat that gives a bonus to skill checks also makes those skills class skills.
