spending pools of points

I'm trying to test IPP by setting up an old World of Darkness character generator.

In the WoD, you get pools of points to spend. So, for Attributes, you have Physical, Social, and Mental (three in each category) You designate which is primary, secondary, and tertiary. The primary category gets 7 points to spend any way you like, the secondary gets 5 points to spend, and the tertiary gets 3 points to spend. Skills become even more complex as there's approximately 30 skills to spend points between.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.


  • 'spending' points isnt too difficult to set up. On each item that cost a point, subtract one from a variable (use 'inline' variable assignment). You might also use deck picks, if all you're doing is picking X number of items from tables.
  • Thank you very much for the answer, I'm off to experiment now!
