Each Pathfinder: Kingmaker character has ability scores. A bonus is derived from ability scores are added to nearly every roll. Player characters are created with base ability scores between 7 and 18. 10 is the default value before bonuses are applied. Each ability score's bonus is one half of the score minus 10: Bonus = (Score-10)/2.

Pathfinder: Kingmaker uses the 25 point buy method[1]. When creating a character, all ability scores start at 10 and the player spends points to change their values. Racial bonuses are applied after the points are assigned.
