That explains the weapon damage then.

Looking for MGT rules to support the post 81 OTU is like looking for Lamentations of the Flame Princess or Labyrinth Lord to include support for Dark Sun, Hollow World, and Ravenloft. Sure, you can run them with them, but you will need to deviate from the Rules As Written to do so, as they were not part of the designer's phronema.

Oh, and the writer introducing the low lottery? Marc Miller - it's in CT-77 Book 2 page 2.
Nothing wrong with house rules. Even when they disagree with the original creator. I remember that some years ago Golan2072 made some house rules for the low berth that I liked. I may try to dig 'em out.

EDIT: Here they are. They're CT but can easily be adapted.
