Ok, if thats the correct table then yes, theres an issue with halfing skills for this. The ratio dosen't matter.

While it is true that his skill is halved also, that doesn't matter, because if my roll fails his blow hits at full strength whether he makes his roll or not - in both cases I take full damage. I still haven't got the rules, (probably will on monday,) so can someone please summerise the Parry table...

Re: Playtesting?

There are a couple of changes that I really question, such as the change from skill-use experience checks to awarded checks. (Maybe done to avoid a lawsuit for beeing too derivative of BRP?) Skill-use eqpreience checks have always been the number one complaint I have encounted when talking about Ru...

Hyrum.
As i understand it the attack roll is never halved, only the roll to resist parry is.

He attacks at 80 and you parry at 55, which hardly seems fair to me. Your compairing apples to orenges though, as the second roll is opposed and the first is not. I cant be sure without seeing teh table, but as long as on the opposed roll Both Failing is about = to both making it, then it dosen't a...

Hmm, if WotC stops publishing RPG's, will that mean that our favourite classic D&D settings will finally be available for purchase by other publishers? That could be a good thing. Traditionally Hasbro is vry conservative when it comes to selling/licencing copyright on stuff it owns, even stuff it's...

I used to really worry about my Dwarvern Gunner Charicter, as he seemed pretty much behind the pack. However, now were past 10th level things have turned around a lot, wioth the other players saying hes by far the most powerful. (And when he reguraly hits form more than 50 damage you do start to fee...

A Cimmerian adventurer would have huge problems in Pictland. A Pict adventurer would have huge problems in Cimmeria. But there's no intrinsic reason for a Pict and a Cimmerian to hate each other while in Shem. They could easily relate to each other better than they relate to the locals. In the main...

They are 'helpless' because non of their abilities function. Not only that but they take a further penalty to their actions, and since without willpower they can only attack in melee at their normal bab(which is pretty pathetic) , with the penalty they cannot hit the proverbial side of the wall. Th...

Another game system that I liked except for it's lack of the very copy paste you mentioned drove me crazy. It had hundreds of spells in seperate lists and it would drive me nuts when it said "Kill XYZ: As Kill XYZ on the Butterfinger List". I really prefer the copy paste. But mine is just one voice...

depends how you define powerless. At the same point the Brotherhood mage is out of Hitpoints, which is just way worse! Also the Dessi can make potions which give him a lot more lasting power compaired to other classes.

I think mesuring it on systems isen't particually telling.

I don't think you can dispute that more books are sold about class based systems than none class based ones.

However, thats still missing the point. Which is would more people be happy with the change than people who would be upset by it?
