Hello:

`I've been working on some house rules that deal better with unusually
``high and low Movement Allowance scores, and that deal better with
``unusually large MA penalties. This is what I currently have:
`

`If a figure's MA score is 28 or higher, then each point of MA penalty
``reduces the figure's MA by 4 points, until the figure reaches MA 26 or
``24. Then the following rule applies.
`

`If a figure's MA score is between 14 and 26, then each point of MA
``penalty reduces the figure's MA by 2 points, until the figure reaches MA
``12. Then the following rule applies.
`

`If a figure's MA score is between 7 and 12, then each point of MA
``penalty reduces the figure's MA by 1 point, as usual, until the figure
``reaches MA 6. Then the following rule applies.
`

`If a figure's MA score is 6 or less, then each point of MA penalty
``reduces the figure's MA by 0.5 points. Keep fractions; they won't affect
``the figure's movement on the hex grid but will provide a small buffer if
``further MA penalties are applied later.
`

`As a shortcut when the total MA penalty is -6 or worse, cut the figure's
``MA score in half and then apply any penalty beyond -6. (E.g. for a -8 MA
``penalty, cut MA in half and then apply a further -2 penalty.) When
``cutting MA in half, round up to the nearest *even* number if the result
``is MA 13 or higher, and keep odd or fractional MA scores otherwise. Thus
``MA 26 would be halved to 14 (instead of 13) but MA 14 would be halved to
``MA 7 (no rounding), and MA 7 would be halved to MA 3.5 (again with no
``rounding).
`
===

`The idea is to keep the effect of MA penalties more or less in
``proportion to the figure's *current* MA score, with a -4 penalty applied
``to a figure with a current MA 14 having the same effect whether the MA
``14 is the figure's base MA or its adjMA after a previously-applied
``penalty. But it does mean that larger MA penalties are needed to bring
``normal MA 8-12 figures down to MA 0. (-14 instead of -8 for MA 8, -16
``instead of -10 for MA 10, and -18 instead of -12 for MA 12)
