Character Attributes, or Stats are a measure of a character's strengths and abilities in Barony. They are separate from skills, but have a similar function in passively assisting the player as they accumulate more points of attribution. affect a character's successful use of their skills.
When compared to skills, Stats are much more generalized than the skills accumulated throughout the dungeon, allowing for general archetypes to be enhanced by the bonuses of stats, while a more specialized character can rely on the more potent benefits of skill mastery.
Stats are granted every time the character levels up, requiring an extra 100 experience until another dose of stats can be allocated. The distribution of these stats upon leveling up depends on what related skills were learned during that leveling process.
Each Class also begins their adventure with a set range of stat allocations alongside their skills and equipment when starting a new adventure. Furthermore, the sex of the character has an impact to the stats of the character, with Male characters beginning with +1 point of Strength, while Female characters begin with +1 to Dexterity.
