I wrote that with bonus/penalty to TN in mind, as the numbers stay meaningful at all levels of ability. A handicap of even -20 if you have a skill of 10W4 is fairly meaningless, but at skill 15 it is pretty much fatal. All edges and hanidcaps tend to do is exaggerate the random factor in the contest. If they're big in comparison to the skills being used, one or other participant will have to bet the farm on a single die roll in order to do anything.

Philip Hibbs Opinions expressed may not even be my own, let alone those of any organisations, nations, species, or schools of thought to which I may be affiliated.
