To see your stats, SCORE (or SC). See HELP SCORE for more information.


What Determines Your Stats
--------------------------
Stats are primarily determined by your race. Once you have reached level 10,
you can alter the distribution of your stats somewhat by selecting a racial
specialisation (see HELP SPECIALISATION).


What Doesn't Change Your Stats
------------------------------
Stats do not change because you rise in age, or increase or decrease in
experience, or level, or skill.


What DOES Increase Stats
------------------------
Some things may affect your stats, if only temporarily:
- A God may look upon you with Favour, or Disfavour (HELP DIVINE FAVOURS).
- An adventurer may affect your stats by use of certain abilities.
- You may acquire a powerful item via questing (HELP QUESTS).
- You may borrow or purchase an artefact of power (HELP ARTEFACTS).
- Your House may tune its Icon to provide a boost (HELP ICONS).
