3rd times a charm, right?
I completely agree with Aramis of Erak. The only contention I had with Andrew's post was when he stated something similar to a "DEX +3 means your DEX is 3 points above the average in whatever game you are playing" and it definitely does not work that way. If you are using Tal to supplement AD&D and someone plays a Karakhan Giant with a (iirc) STR +6 or +8 then you can see it will get out of hand pretty quickly. If you roll a 14 then the adjustment makes your STR 20 to 22!
Yeah, Bard Games and several other companies blurred the lines between supplement or standalone game but that's cool. There was a lot of good stuff from that time.
