     ONLY Applicable to the Incarna d20 Variant      

Multiclassing must be reflected in time and resources required to learn the new skills and traits and integrate them seamlessly into their existing class. Multiclassing is the simple equivalent of splitting aptitude ratings – it provides more flexibility, but less direct power.

Significant time to acquire/achieve outside of Character Inception.

When using d20 Aptitude Approach: Multiclassing Ability Score Minimums increase for each Class added. ex: A second Class will have a 14 for a minimum, a third class would have a 15.
