SPECIAL ABILITIES
Exceptional Stats (Ex) Factol Ambar is exceptional, and his ability scores were generated using 25 points rather than the standard 15-point buy used to create most NPCs. In addition, he has the full support of the Believers of the Source faction behind him, and thus has gear equal to that of a PC rather than an NPC. These modifications increase his total CR by +2.
