Beasts are very common though most are small things such as dire wolves, imps, goblins and the like there are much more dangerous creatures which roam through Peus. They are daily occurrence in most villages and, as such, most small farming towns have palisades and their own guard regiments provided by the kingdom or God who rules them. Even in Jorn the farming and woodland villages supported by the city are reinforced with magic from Amari.
As for magic and magic items, for the most part most small communities have at least one or two Aether Touched in them. The most accurate counting of the occurrence of an Aether Touched is about 1 in 50 people. A city such as Jorn is, however, an outlier with a large amount of Aether Touched (recent census ringing in at 300 with 80 aligned with the Scarlet Flame). Magic items, on the other hand, are rather rare. While anybody can use a magic item, it requires a being with a strong connection to the Aether to create one. It takes years of training to infuse an object with the essence of Aether and, even then, most would lose power over time. However relics exist from Aeurius' time throughout the world which have yet to lose any power, some held by the Pantheon and some lost to cities swallowed by the earth.
The sheet has no limit on skills and talents and the like however it does need to be balanced. Characters are not expected to be some grand adventurer who have killed a drake or giant.
