You're arguing for mathematical, objective balance, right? But what Habiki and I think others have been saying is mathematical equality is meaningless if the stats themselves do not give equal "value". An equalized goblin and a hobbit, both giving an average of 6 in overall +/- doesn't make them equal when the goblin's strength and con have much more usefulness in the current Genesis combat system.Amberlee wrote:

The core of what I have been saying all along is this.

1. Get rid of the extreme differences.

2. Even out the total modifiers and penalties so they in the end have the same sum total.

Yes, objectivity is excellent, but you have to consider the real value of the stats as they function in the mechanics of the game. Either the combat/magic mechanics need to be adjusted to give equal usefulness to all stats (which would allow your idea of equal sum total of +/-), or the stat modifiers need to be equal in terms of the value they represent in the current system.
