- This page is about a type of trait in RPGs. For statistics in the analytical sense, see probabilities.
A game's core resolution mechanic is often directly connected to the primary statistics (i.e. basic stats not derived from other traits) of the player characters. Characters may also have secondary statistics (which are derived from other traits).
A stat block is the collection of stats relevant to a particular entity. For a player character, stats are collected on a player's character sheet (which may or may not include traits other than stats).
Stats are often classified into several different categories, but these categories and the specific stats in them vary by game system. Categories that may be used include:
Other types of statistics that do not fall into such categories may include:
