Default Re: The 'Indiana Jones' adventurer challenge

This general design concept is clearly a favorite of yours, but I have long wondered how they survive in play. A combatant with low ST, moderate to low adjDX and no obvious way to fend off an attack is very vulnerable. Any missile weapon attack, pole weapon charge or melee attack by a moderately high adjDX combatant will have a good chance of putting an end to such a character before they get their first action.

Hence the double-parry plus occult strike.

Rolling on 4/DX reduces critical hit chances and then subtract 4 hits from ordinary attacks.
