(TFT) TFT magic items are very powerful.
Hi all, Peter.
I found that the TFT magic items were very powerful. Eventually, I
replaced "Speed MA" rings with "Haste" rings (+3 MA if you have no
armor, +2 MA if you have cloth or Leather, and +1 if you are wearing
heavier armor). Like wise, Stone Flesh became rare, Iron Flesh
became almost unheard of, and players bought Leather Flesh rings.
(-2 hits per attack).
The single thing I like least about TFT is the experience system. At
high levels it can take forever to go up. The GURPS system where
you usually improve skills and very rarely improve attributes, is one
of the most appealing parts of that game for me.
Warm regards, Rick.

Having those on all the time, on people who are also quite skilled, makes them able to handle many normal-range opponents with very little risk, even if some critical hits land.
