Nope, not at all. I'm personally very much in favour of playing things as they were intended and while I think it's a bit of a loss of some "explanatory power" to shed statistics wholesale I appreciate that if this is critical to the design then there you go. I had just wondered if that was indeed the case.

In my own games I already use a flexible resistance system (although to call it a system is to give it too much honour I think!) so it's not particularly jarring to me - although the old style "adventure" will probably have to have its format reconsidered and be a lot more wordy than before.


P.S. Why is everyone hating on the Big Model?
