Made some Runequest 6 characters tonight...and in doing so I noticed something.
(Follow along on Page 18 of the book.)
I have a 18 in CHA. I'm at near the pinnacle in human CHA. I get a +1 Experience Modifier, which is fine.
Fine until I notice that someone with a 13 CHA (slightly better than average CHA) also gets a +1 Experience Modifier.
I have a 18 in CON. I'm at near the pinnacle in human CON. I get a +3 Healing Rate, which is fine.
Again, I'm OK with this until I figure out that someone with only a 13 CON also gets my +3 Healing Rate.
Then to top it off, if I had a 18 POW I would think I was somewhat special. I bank my +3 Luck Points.
But wait....some chump with only 13 POW also gets my +3 Luck Points.
Basically...not sure I'd be happy with someone with 28% less in my Characteristic getting the same bonus I did. What's so special about being the best when mearly "above average" is now equal?
