Character Statistics (henceforth abbreviated as stats) are a collection of numbers that define your character, modifying what your character can do and how effectively they can do it. These stats can be increased by completing actions that are affected by said stats. For example, weapons skills can be increased by engaging in combat with the specified weapon.
Statistics break down into seven main categories: Attributes, Weapon Skills, Combat Skills, Thievery Skills, Athletic Skills, Science Skills, and Trade Skills.
In the Stats window, players can view all the levels of their selected Player Character. By hovering over a specific skill, players can read descriptions about that skill as well as view how much experience their character has towards the next level in that skill.

- Heavy Weapons - Two handed weapons that specialize in a massive damage. A mix of blunt and cutting damage. Great reach but at the cost of large indoor penalties. Highest damage output of all weapons. (Not counting Martial Arts)
- Blunt Weapons - One handed weapons that specialize in blunt damage, resulting in a non-lethal knockout. Slower than blades but a strong character can wield them with a decent speed and high damage.

Range
