HEROIC: D6 Supers - Attributes Update 2
So I recently took a friend's advice and posted a thread about this project to rpg.net in an effort to get a bit more input. I was hesitant at first, given my previous experiences with online forums and my projects/conversations in the past (I should blog about that someday), but I sucked up my hesitations and made the post and prepared myself for the onlsaught.
I was stunned at how positive the response has been. Mind numbed actually, since my past adventures in the online rpger community have not been the most positive, but I am digressing and should REALLY do a post about this at some point.
Back on topic.
So while I do not share or agree a lot of the same ideas as others, and I am writing this for myself, it has been enlightening seeing how others perceive this little project of mine.
This has lead, through conversation there and here, to be cementing a decision that I was having trouble with earlier.
Instead of having individual Jump, Running, Climbing and Swimming skills, they get folded into one catch-all skill called Athletics and those previously mentioned skills become specializations for this skill.
Now you could continue this though process and start reducing all skills this way, but for me this is about as far as I go. Yes I have reduced the world of sciences to Science skill, and all ranged attacks as Ranged Combat, etc... But piloting and driving should remain separate skills to me.
As always your mileage may vary and you should totally do the way you think you would like to see it done.
