I have a few questions. They're just things I've been pondering as of late, and nobody ever completely helped me understand them...

1: When setting up your stats, you start with 8, plus or minus racial midifiers. You then proceed to add the number of points you've been given. I know how all that works... But can you take away points? Like... could I drop all my Int points, or at least a few, in order to get a few more points to buff up my Constitution or Strength? Plus, it'd make RPing a bit more interesting...

2: Skills. I've never quite gotten skills. I know you start out with access to most of them, with whatever stat mods you get. But how do you make them stronger?

I was instructed to give my first character, a human fighter, Swim, Climb, and Jump. Being first level, he would get 1+3 points in each skill.

So I've got 3 skills, with 4 points in each one. Next level, they all go up by one.

But what about my other skills?

Do they also go up by one? Or do I have to pick one in order to put points in it? And if so, how many points do I put in it?

Lets say I've got Jump, Climb, and Swim with 4 points in them. I go up to level 2, and they all go up to 5. When I get to level 3, lets say I put a point in Spot instead of Jump. So now I've got...

Jump - 5

Climb - 6

Swim - 6

Spot - 1

Or do I have a 4 in Spot?

I am sooooo confused...

Btw, I'm currently playing/learning 3.5e...
