Oops, my bad. However, I can't actually see the point in limiting the -ve DMs at the bottom end of the scale. I mean, if a character with DEX 2 gets DM -1, and a character with DEX 5 also gets DM -1, then it screws up the game play and task throws - doesn't it?
Is there a 'cap' on penalties below -1?
Dunno, but I've asked for clarification anyway

Well, on the scale I've done a score of 5 would incur no penalty. Scores 4 or less would.

I dunno, but we could spend ages debating the precise value of each characteristic score, but seeing that they are an abstraction to a degree, as long as it's something along those lines, I'm not that bothered really.

The key thing is that the mechanic now prioritises skills, and is a simple target system on 2d6. Perfectly good for me.
