Hello everyone! I'm just starting out on BRP gaming so please excuse any stupid questions from my part. I've got the original RQ2e + Cults Compendium but I'm finding the combat system a little bit too fiddly (strike ranks mostly) so I was thinking of porting the whole thing over to Openquest. I've noticed though that when it comes to combat sample characters and creatures seem underpowered in RQ2e when compared to OQ. For example let's compare an entry from both books; DUCK (OQ) Characteristics STR 2D6+3 (10) INT 2D6+6 (13) CON 2D6+6 (13) POW 3D6 (10) DEX 2D6+6 (13) CHA 2D6 (7) SIZ 1D6+6 (9) Attributes Hit Points 11 Major Wound 6 Damage Modifier Magic Points 10 Movement Rate 12m Armour Leather armour (AP 2) Plunder Rating 2 Skills Resistances Dodge 60%, Persistence 50%, Resilience 50% Knowledge Nature Lore 70% Practical Deception 50% Combat Close Combat 50% Short Sword (1D6) Buckler (1D4) Ranged Combat 60% Sling (1D4) DUCK (RQ2e) Their close combat skill in OQ is 50% and ranged 60% where as in RQ2e it's almost half that (30% for short sword and 30% for sling). I guess the differences in Characteristics is really small so I don't mind them at all. But what about their weapon skills? Is there a reason for this difference? Is there a formula to convert a RQ2e creature to OQ? thanks in advance!
