I've been experimenting with a similiar idea, but from another
direction. Basically, you can use experience points to enhance
The idea is this: Lets say you buy "Horsemanship". This might
give you an additional modifier of +0 on all rolls requiring you
to use that talent. If you bought it again, you'd have a +1 to
your die roll, buying it again would give you a +2, again would
give a +4 and so on.
Your IQ stat would represent your basic ability to know different
things, so you couldn't ever have more talents than you have IQ.
(Talents which cost 2 or even 4 points are then very costly indeed.)
You could work something similiar for basic ST and DX - but I'd make
it difficult to increase these scores. Not everyone has the build
required to be Arnold Schwarzenegger - and those who do have to work
I would argue against DX being a measure of accuracy though - I
think it is more a measure of coordination. Accuracy and speed
don't have much to do with being able to avoid tripping over your
feet. Accuracy is more of a learned ability - thus the modifier on
Thus - someone might have an ST 11, DX 12 and have Longbow+4,
meaning this person is highly accurate with a longbow, reflecting
their long hours of practice with it - but would be only average
at using a Crossbow or some other missile weapon.
