Epic of Serinor: Arcane Dawn
Potential is awarded during creation to characters who participate in fewer than the full number of phases of creation. This could be a character who is younger than most of his fellows and starts his story later or a character who does little of significance during a given phase.
Points of potential can be spent during any phase of creation. More than one point can be spent per phase. For each point of potential spent during a phase, the character may select one additional aspect and spend four skill ranks related to that aspect. The only limitation on these extra aspects and skills is that they be related to the aspect selected normally during the phase.
