While neither purchased directly, nor figured from other attributes, this is simply set based on guidelines for the setting and genre.

Size approximates how large or small something is. It’s not a precise method of measurement but instead a rough guide for making estimations. While Size ranks primarily measure the volume of an object, for simplicity a GM should estimate based on height of bipedal creatures or the length for quadrupedal creatures.

Size primarily factors into three areas: Movement, Reach, and Strength. A character’s Movement is equal to 5 + Size + Agility + ½ Athletics. A bipedal character’s Reach is equal to their Size, while a quadrupedal character’s Reach is equal to their Size -1. Finally, a character’s starting Strength is equal to their Size and their maximum Strength is equal to their Size + 5. If a character’s size changes for any reason all of these related characteristics also change to match.
