Dalewarrior  Not sure about the math? 2 BOs = 3 rolls total. i.e. 2 rolls on magic and 1 on arms.  I suggest the first of each series or a reroll for the actual skills.

Just X could you do it for me, as I didn't understand your maths.
Cheers,

Dalewarrior, you can take +15 to AG, CO and SD as your three rolls or you can roll 3 X 1d100 and the new rolls will provide the background options.

Also I have thought over the Spell lists as BO's.  What I would offer is that for spending 3 Background Options you could have received formal training in magic.  this would amount to the following


2 ranks in attunement
2 ranks in runes
2 ranks of channeling
2 spell lists picks from your profession's options
4 ranks in research (searching for correlations in a library like setting--also for new spell research)
4 ranks of written magical language


You will also have your choice of how to cast/summon mana.  These would be personal mana (that stored within you); granted mana (typically provided by a diety or demon); Ambient mana (that mana that flows through everything and across the planet); or Fixed mana (they type in spell ingredients or crystals).  Just because you cast from the channeling realm does not mean that your power need come from a deity.  This is part of the magic system that is more house rules, but I do not use it to limit the core rules.  It just adds variability to archetypes and allows more personalization and a bit more feel to the magic.

Dalewarrior, respect to the character sheet, I generally do not use the hobby ranks, hopefully the magical tutoring will help make up for that.  I see weapons as Broadsword and dagger, is that correct.  I am assuming that you are taking ranks in one or the other and applying similar skills to the other?  As opposed to having ranks in both.  Alternately, you could consider a fighting style that would have sword in one hand and dagger in the other, but this will have a higher development cost.  Finally, have attached the character sheet with the primary skill ranks highlighted.  The primary skill (highlighted) are where you can spend the 31 Development points per level, anything that is left over plus the bonus 12 DP per level (40%) can be spent on secondary skill (not highlighted).  I did notice that you have no ranks in body development and you might want to consider some in spell list acquisition.  You may also wish to consider a rank in each climbing and swimming, but that is up to you.

Hmmm.

Previously...
CO: 72 (97) = diff (15+) = +15 = 87 (97) = diff (10) = +4 = 91 (97)
AG: 44 (70) = diff (15+) = +15 = 59 (70) = diff (11) = +8 = 67 (70)
SD: 98 (98) = diff (0) = no changes
ME: 47 (47) = diff (0) = no changes
RE: 90 (90) = diff (0) = no changes
ST: 54 (70) = diff (15+) = -2! = 52(70) = diff (15+) = +8 = 60 (70)
QU: 76 (93) = diff (15+) = +3 = 79 (93) = diff (14) = +10 = 89 (93)
PR: 82 (91) = diff (9) = +2 = 84 (91) = diff (7) = 0!! = 84 (91)

 :rolleyes:

*new stats*
CO: 91 (97)
AG: 67 (70)
SD: 98 (98)
ME: 47 (47)
RE: 90 (90)
ST: 60 (70)
QU: 89 (93)
PR: 84 (91)

As I said.. Hmmm

16 — Item Lore: PC gets + 25 on all Staves/Wands rolls.
21 — Archmage Abilities: PC has abilities similar to an Archmage. His
development point costs are now the same as any one of the hybrid spell users.
His base lists do not change, but he may now make spell picks as a hybrid,
but for all three realms.
62-70: + 15 to QU modification.

Not too bad.  I am amazed how may times the arch mage thing gets rolled in my games.
