Wizardry 1st Trilogy: Story of Llylgamyn for SNES— Characters

This page contains helpful information to use when creating your party. Attributes in these three Wizardry scenarios are based heavily on Dungeons and Dragons. Each has a minimum score of 3, and a maximum of 18. When raising a level, characters gain HP, and have a chance to either increase or decrease! their score in all six of their attributes. Lastly, if they are eligible to learn new spells, a check is made against the pertinent attribute (Piety for Priest spells, I.Q. for Mage spells) to see whether the character learned each one of the spells they are eligible to cast.

Racial attribute minimums

When characters are created, their race determines their attributes before you apply any bonus points that you have been awarded. You use those points to increase the correct attributes to open the class, or role, you want them to fill.

Later, you may decide to change a character's class. At the Training Grounds, you can change character's class if they have the attributes to open that class. Once they have changed classes, however, their attributes revert back to these racial minimums... with no bonus points to apply! Take care when doing this!

Character Class properties

As far as I know, character class affects three things: what a character can and cannot use (will be detailed on the Items page later), if they can learn spells (and when they can learn them), how many swings they take per round of combat (a new feature available in my mod), and the HP total the character has. Additionally, each character gains levels at a different rate.
