Any one have thoughts on exchanging or adding attributes to specific characters? Old editions of Dnd had optional rules for Appearance, Honor, and other replacements for CHA. The Fate SRD mentions exchanging Approaches as a type of permanent consequence (Forceful to Vicious, Careful to Cowardly, etc.)
In the past I’ve thought about making character species and background more significant by letting players add a new attribute to their character sheet (An elf could have a stat for how ancient they are, a dwarf for how respected, etc.) although I’ve never implemented it because I didn’t want to start complexity creep.
I HAVE given monsters attributes that cover unique abilities (without adding to more conventional rolls), like giving a dragon Flight +6 but otherwise having low DEX.
I’m always looking for ways to expand my mechanical toolset as a GM
