This reminds me of something that I've been meaning to bring up to the
list... way back in Different Worlds #15, there was an article that
suggested splitting the three TFT attributes into no less than six stats.
 Without re-posting the entire article, it broke down roughly as follows:

Strength (ST) gets split into

	Strength (ST) - ability to use weapon, do damage, carry encumberence,

	Hit Points (HP) - all damage taken, whether from weapon damage or

Intelligence (IQ) gets split into

	Intelligence (IQ) - Ability to learn spells and talents

	Knowledge (KN) - # of spells and talents that can be learned

Dewterity (DX) gets split into

	Dexterity (DX) - saving rolls, initiative

	Success Chance (SC) - determines whether a spell or attack is successful

Any comments?  I can't see the need (except for symmetry, perhaps) for
seperating DX into two different stats, but the other suggestions look
