Your character starts with the minimal that your character's race gives.
You've got 18 points to spend.

Detrimes the character's physical strenght.
Below 10, it means low ammount of physical strenght. The lesser the worse.
10 is average
12 is a bit stronger than the average.
14 is somewhat stronger than the average.
16 is much stronger than the average.
18 is as strong as 2 average men.
Above 20, it's so strong that the character can kill someone by just one punch or kick.
It detrimes how good is your character at professions which demand fine motor skills. Fine motor skills are the coordination of small muscle movements which occur e.g., in the fingers, usually in coordination with the eyes.
The abilities which involve the use of hands develop over time, starting with primitive gestures such as grabbing at objects to more precise activities that involve precise eye–hand coordination. Fine motor skills are skills that involve a refined use of the small muscles controlling the hand, fingers, and thumb. The development of these skills allows one to be able to complete tasks such as writing, drawing, buttoning and using ranged weapons (aiming)
Below 10, your character is rather clumsy.
10 is the average.
12 is better than the average.
14 is somewhat better than the average.
16 is much smarter than the average.
Over 18, the chance that your characters wrecks something is very low
It detrimes how smart is your character. This is very important for spellcasters. The higher the intelligence, the higher ammount of mana they have. And they higher ammount of mana they have, the more they can use magic before needing to rest.
Below 10, your character is rather stupid.
10 is average.
12 is a bit smarter than the average.
14 is somewhat smarter than the average.
16 is much smarter than the average.
Over 18, your character is a genius. He's like Einstein.
It detrimes your character's sharpness of thinking, memory and also the strenght of magic used by the character (if the character is a spellcaster)
Below 10 your character is forgetful and slowly-thinking, but not nescesarry stupid. Even the biggest genius needs time to think about new ideas.
10 is average.
12 has a bit better memory and a bit sharper thinking than the average.
14 has somewhat better memory and somewhat sharper thinking than the average.
16 has much better memory and much sharper thinking than the average.
Over 18, the character can remember anything and can think very quick (regardless of how big is his/her intelligence)
Detrimes how much physical work can your character endure doing without getting tired or fainting.
Below 10, your character can't do work for very long (regardless of how physically strong he/she is), the lesser the worse.
10 is average.
12 can endure physically demanding work for a little longer than the average.
14 can endure physically demanding work for somewhat longer than the average.
16 can endure physically demanding work for much longer than the average.
Over 18, your character could be the perfect laborer, for he/she can endure physically demanding work for very long (regardless of how strong he/she is)
Detrimes your character's diplomatic skills. Also, with high ammount of charisma, your character is very good at telling lies and making fools out of people, while with low ammount of charisma, people instantly know whenever your character is being honest or telling lies.
Also, charisma is important for spellcasters. Casting dark spells requires more mana for a good wizard, and casting light magic spells requires more mana for an evil wizard. High ammount of charisma reduces this, so the wizard is able to cast both light and dark spells without problems.


They detrime what is your character skilled at.
For a new skill you need to spend 1 skill point. To upgrade a basic skill to advanced, you need to spend 2 skill ppints. To upgrade an advanced skill to expert, you need to spend 3 skill points
So, you need to spend 6 skill points in total to upgrade an untrained skill to master. (This doesen't apply to armour-wearing, which requires only 1 point per level)

Untrained: Your character is rather clumsy, even in the lightest armour, totally uncapable of fighting.
Light your character can move well in gambesons and leather armour, but heavier armours mean problem.

Heavy: your character is well-trained, so he/she stays mobile even in the heaviest plate mail, and can use large shields well.

Advanced: Your character can lie. He/she can smuggle the goods trough. In higher-security areas he/she can take it through it well, or can do it all alone with the combination of the skill Forgery. Sucess is not guaranteed, but as most people would say: "Worth a try"
Expert: Illegal goods, human trafficking, human smuggling, arms dealing, etc. All will work fine! You don't need forgery skills, nor assistance! Your character is an expert smuggler and can smuggle anything through! Okay, it might be a bit much, but your character makes a fine smuggler.
