Re: (TFT) Polyhedral Weapon Heresy

I like TFT because it is so deadly, but you can manage this with tactics even
in the Death Test with no magic armor or Iron Flesh rings.  Stick with sandlot
tactics gang up and kill on guy first especially if you can keep one of them
out of combat for a round or two either by maneuvers or spells.

 In campaigns fine plate plus an Iron Flesh ring stops most hits unless the
roll well or you run into something really big.

     We all play the same system (modulo house rules). That doesn't mean we
       play the same game.

       After the first year or so, my players changed how they played,
       because combat is deadly. They would do nearly anything to avoid it.
       if they had to do it, they stacked the odds in their favor as much as
       possible. Much as one might do in real life. Lots of ambush, surprise,
       escape routes, missle weapons (and spells, screw the dueling rules),
       proxies, dupes, fall guys, deniability, etc.

       As for characters with very high stats, most were NPCs. They were the
       who, before the campaign started managed to scape together enough
       power to be able to get Youth potions. They're effectively unaging.
       the Jobs table gives you a roll every week and a chance to get just
       XP to gain an attribute point. And once your ST is high enough, you
       die from a blown roll. Those guys (who really do nearly rule the world,
       at least a lot of it where the players were based) are pretty close to
       invulnerable. It's what happens when the rules are set up the way they
       in TFT.

       Towards the end, the players started figuring out a few things about
       world, and even got cloe to wanting to try to figure out how some
       could stay in power for centuries. They never got that far themselves,
