Dragon Age: Origins - No Starting Abilities Mod

Normally, during character creation, the game assigns certain abilities based on your class and background, and then lets you choose a few others on your own. This mod will make it so that you no longer get those automatic abilities. In return you receive more points to spend on what you want. In the end the balance is the same.

Install

Extract the files to \Documents\BioWare\Dragon Age\packages\core\override
