Default Re: Attribute levels and their meanings.

While ST ratings can be objectively reality tested using BL, I wouldn't put too much weight on what ST means in terms of damage as the ST/damage table is purely arbitrary. Starting at Thr 1d-2 for ST 10 and going up in nice little increments, it's purely gamist. There's nothing wrong with that, it just doesn't make an argument for how to match ST to reality.

Damage is matched to reality in terms of steel and DR, but the ST table would have to be derived from that using first principles.
