@Invocation, this character would be guaranteed good, except you need 50 points of skill. So add 20 points and hope that your weakness is enough to balance your character out.

You don’t actually need 50 points of skill. 50 points is just the max. 

@Invocation I’m going to hold off on ranking this character for another day or two, sorry. The radiant portion of the index will be Redone  tmrw, and 4th oath radiants will be a lot more points. I don’t want to rate this character to have to re-do it tmrw.

The recommended cap for a character is 150 points. 100 of these may be used for points from any category, like magic. 50 of the points may only be used for skills

The index says that 50 must be used on skills. If the max was 50, why do we have 60 point skills?

Also, everyone who isn't from that planet is automatically a drab, so there is that.

If a native of Sel or another Shardworld traveled to Nalthis, would they be a drab?

Brandon Sanderson (paraphrased)

No, they would not be a drab. But, no one would be able to take their Breath.

NutiketAiel (paraphrased)

If such a person died on Nalthis, could they Return?

Brandon Sanderson (paraphrased)

No, they cannot Return.

NutiketAiel (paraphrased)

If such a person received breath, could they use BioChroma?

Brandon Sanderson (paraphrased)

Yes

Yes, this only means that you can't take those fifty skill and then use them to gain more power. Think of it like this. You have to cups, where one is taller than the other. You pour water into them both. The taller cup can fit power, and the shorter can fit skill. When you fill up the taller cup, the overflow falls into the skill cup, but the skill cup, as it is shorter, cannot overflow into the power cup. You don't have to fill up the cups, but you can.

Just to say this; the thing you just said was the main argument against the point system. Just because you have extra points, doesn't mean you have to use them. So, you character is fine, as long as they have a twenty point weakness, or are non combative.

I think we’re on the same page. I disagree with this

That's fair. I did not know it was going to be redone. I'll check the redone portion and adjust accordingly, when that is updated!

If you really want your dispute settled, why not ask the one who wrote it (I think it's Meeker, but it might be Archer, either way, Meeker would know).  @Lord Meeker

Actually voidus was the one who wrote the portion about the skills vs power points. But I was there when they wrote it up.

The idea is that you have 100 general points. You can spend these on magic or equipment or skills. Then you have 50 skill points. These can only be used for skills. Not power or equipment.

Yes. Invo used 30 of these, so unless he is 20 points under he will have put them in a category he wasn't supposed to.

No, he doesn’t have to spend those points. 

He is 20 points over on general points, and he has 20 surplus skill points. His weakness will need to cancel out the investiture points, but he doesn’t need to spend the left over skill points.

Yes, assuming his weakness cancels out the excess investiture points.
