Default Re: Defense bonus and ATR

It stands to reason that the size of the bonus should depend on how many levels of ATR the character has.

However, how large would those bonuses realistically be? The difference between a normal person and someone with ATR 1 would reasonably be the same as the difference between someone with ATR 1 and someone with ATR 3 (since in both cases one is twice as fast as the other), so it should probably not be a constant bonus per level of ATR.
For ATR 1 I would arbitrarily go with a +3. You could then add a +3 for each subsequent doubling.
