Character attributes[]

Each character attribute is bound to one or more skills. The bound attribute is added to the skill level when making skill checks. This can make a high attribute more effective than the skill being checked in many circumstances. {eye:Does the total attribute value get added, or just values over 10, 15, or any arbitrary number?}
