level. As you allocate skills, each level knows what class it's for.
The program also knows what classes you've taken at all the levels below
this, so you should be able to set a maximum value for each skill at
each level. All you need to do then is cap it at the maximum for this
skill at this level, given the classes the character already has.
All you really need to check is, what what character level is this, do
any of the classes I already have have this skill on their class list?
is so then max level for the skill at this level is This level + 3. If
it's not on any of my classes skill list, then it's (this level + 3)/2.
It think (I may be wrong) that it's impossible to generate illegal
characters with that check in place.
