At each level, a character gets skill points that are used to buy skills
. The character's class and Intelligence modifier determine the number of points received.
If the character buys a class skill
, he or she gets 1 rank in the skill
for each skill
point spent. If the character buys a cross-class skill
, he or she gets ½ rank per skill
point. The maximum rank in a class skill
is equal to character level + 3. The maximum rank in a cross-class skill
is one-half of this number.
