  1. OK, most of it makes sense and looks good. But what are Power, Reflexes, Toughness, Logic, Spirit, Charm, Looks? They don’t exactly look like Saving Throws. Some sort of Ability check?

    • A combination of ability check and saving throw (roll under). Names etc are still up in the air but they’re effectively stat halved rounded down and increase with level.

  2. Looks interesting… I particularly like how race seems to be working out. It does seem a bit more complicated than LotFP, but that’s not automatically a bad thing. I like the PRTLSCL pseudo-saves, but it kind of looks like Dexterity is going to be the god-stat.
