So yeah, there was mutually-exclusive tie. And I'm adding my favorite option back in as well, because I can. :D

Also, just for @Lanefan, one other question

(Because this one is particularly important, I extended the deadline to 4 days)

Wish I'd seen the earlier post, I could plug my "Medieval virtues" method: you have four Skills: Fortitude, Justice, Prudence, and Temperance. Rogues have proficiency in Fortitude (which is associated with the peasantry), Clerics with Prudence (which is associated with the clergy), Fighters with Justice (associated with the aristocracy), and Wizards with Temperance (associated with the merchant class).

Justice, prudence...those sound very goodly and virtuous. How do they apply to less-than-goodly members of those classes?

Otherwise, intriguing idea.

One day, I hope to actually play DnD.
just to clarify, attributes would be like skills except broader and not stat associated, having the 'thievery' attribute would give you proficiency on say, dex based sneaking and hiding, inteligence based investigating the vunerabilities of a building's security or charisma based bluffing?
