You know, that really takes a load off of my mind. It’s important for me that people see this balance and understand it. That’s the entire foundation for the rules is a balance, I don’t want anyone to think otherwise

True, the assumptions I am making may not have any basis here.  I am just looking at it terms of role-playing games in general and going off of those preconceived notions.  As I began to think about this, I realized what I was thinking was based more on ‘style of play’ rather than actual rules.  After reading a post talking about how we shouldn’t expect this to be a coffee and romance all the time game, it brought a smile to my face.

The more I read the more balance I see.

I was just worried that we were falling into a trap that a lot of games end up putting themselves in, where they inherently favor a certain type of character without realizing it.  The more you talk about it though, the less I am thinking that’s the case.

The rules as they are seem to favor balanced character sheets, which is a VERY GOOD thing.
