I do hope that you won't use the GURPS defense rules right away. That is one of the (few) things that I consider seriously broken with GURPS, that you care unable to defend yourself to a proper degree. I mean, if you're really good, say sword 16, armed with leather armor (PD2) then you have 0 or less on 3d6 to parry, thats less than 50%. Well, at least it buggered me... :-)

Which magic system is it that your thinking of using? There are some!

(Perhaps this siscussion should go off the list...)
