Fundamentally? Parity aids ease of instruction. "You have 28 dots to freely distribute" is easier to explain than running through a massive chunk of "Here is what a Chosen of Serenity needs to look like, now try to balance your concept on top of it". But, like I said, it's a just a small, petty, thing I'm hoping they do.This is curious to me. I found the extra skill dots to be a good way to represent a considerably increased focus on training as described in setting. What is the advantage of having the exact same starting setup as other splats?
