Yeah, BP are freebie points used during character creation.
Stuff bought with XP has a diiferent cost to that bought at character creation. Plus I have some slightly non standard character creation stuff, which is listed in the opening post of my game OOC thread. The link should be slightly up-thread here.
Alright. I was also informed that apparently I was incorrect when working with Attributes and new characters cannot have above three in them without expending Bonus/Freebie Points and/or Exp. This is my first draft
. Below is the updated one according to the new information that AndyZ provided me.

Unless I misread, new characters start at Legend 2, which gives 15 points, no?Finishing Touches:Personality:Background:
So, at the moment, I am working on figuring out Birthrights (Creatures, Followers, Guides, and Relics). It seems that Creatures and Followers aren't useful compared to Guides and Relics, though I don't really know why as I have been playing around with the idea of bringing in a swarm of monkeys to instill chaos on foes (stealing weapons, pickpocketing information, and other similar ideas). As for Guides, I sort of get them, but I don't know much in that regard. As for Relics, they are basically magical items, no? I will have to think of Relics (unless there are per-designated ones to pick and choose?) that fit the character I have in mind.
Now, since I learned that characters start at Legend 3 (not 2 like I thought), Epic Attributes and Boons (No idea what boons are exactly) can only be level 2 max. From what I understand, Epic Attributes are major boosts to the regular attributes, correct?
I'm still not sure about the Virtues aspect beyond the fact that the Celestial Hierarchy's Virtues are Duty, Harmony, Intellect and Valor. Andy said something about focusing on Valor, but I really don't understand the Virtues enough to know why.
As for the Freebies, I think I saw a 'spending chart' on them when looking up my character sheet walkthrough that I am using, so I think I have that down. However, Andy said that new characters start with 50 Exp, no? I have no idea how to 'spend' that on increasing my character's Attributes/Abilities and similar.
