Default Re: Combat as a contest of attack skill vs defense

I used the contest option in 3e and it worked well for my game. You need to tweak defences because they're nerfed as mention above. It speeds up combat for high skilled characters because they can reliably deliver unstoppable blows. The main problem or feature if you prefer, is that high weapon skills become extremely preferable and therefore common.

When I switched to 4e, I dropped it because the array of combat options available now make it unnecessary IMO.
