Starting Skills and Stats
Adjusted for your species' aptitudes:
While Fighters may seem weak or "generic" compared to the more exotic backgrounds, remember that your background is only your starting package. Unlike, say, Berserkers or Chaos Knights, Fighters are free to choose any god they like, including those you cannot start the game with!
Prior to 0.14, fighters did not start with a potion of might and most starting weapons were of a lower tier: short sword instead of cutlass, mace instead of flail, hand axe instead of war axe, and falchion instead of long sword. They also started with 20 gold.
