Attribute Penalty as Die Reduction or Subtraction

#1 Postby Silmerosse » Fri Mar 10, 2017 10:52 pm

In the core rule book and the fantasy companion, attribute penalties for race reduce the ability die one step. In the newer scifi companion, the penalty subtracts from all rolls. Does this represent a conceptual change in the way the penalties/bonuses work for character creation, or is this only recommended for scoff settings?

I'm considering a fantasy campaign that includes a golem-like race that is large but somewhat sluggish, so I was thinking of using the scifi rules to build the race.

I suggest going with the SFC if you have it as it's the most updated version.
