Re: [Slope: Ch 11] Yet another idea on how to improve Defending

On the other hand, if high DX figures can normally trigger a counter

Sure. Ironically, it was as a player in a PBEM game you were running with those parrying rules that I realized I could really like playing TFT if it had a rule with an effect like that. One of the main issues I have with TFT is how there isn't much way to avoid being hit, so you need to take out your opponents in one turn or else you can expect them to injure you (unless you have enough armor to stop entire attacks).

Something like Neil's idea of normalizing DX down to 10 could be another way I might like (though maybe you wouldn't like that either because you don't like attacks that often don't end up hitting)?
