Minor NPCs receive all of the normal benefits of racial bonuses and penalties, but have their base stats chosen from the following array: 13, 12, 11, 10, 10, 8 Minor NPCs still receive a class as major NPCs. However they do not receive all of the normal benefits from that choice. They receive the base attack bonus, save bonuses, hp, and skill points, as well as the weapon and armor proficiencies from their class choice, but they do not gain feats or class abilities as normal, nor do they have a stamina score. At level 5 and every 5 levels thereafter, minor characters may select one class ability on their class list which they would have normally obtained through leveling. This ability functions normally. If the function of an ability is dependent upon first obtaining another ability, said abilities must be taken in the proper order to allow them to function normally. At level 3 and every 3 levels thereafter, minor characters may select one feat for which they meet the prerequisites. They may not gain any additional feats beyond this, unless they choose to receive a bonus feat as a class ability. Minor NPCs do not get a character theme at all. Minor NPCs gain ability points at a rate of +1 per 4 levels.
