No, thats EXACTLY the problem. I don't want to run a game with players with W4 or W5 in three or four abilities. Characters who can beat any normal man at anything (or have a follower who can). Yeck. And at that I'd be hoping to run the campaign for ANOTHER two or three years, if its going to compare with the better ones I've been involved in previously.

I don't even particularly have a problem with characters at the W4 or 5 level. But I want them to WORK to get there. Not just spend hero points week after week.

Anyway, I suspect we're getting nowhere. I see a problem with characters reaching levels I'm not happy with. You don't. We're not going to agree, so maybe we should drop it.
