So I come back from my 5-day-long vacation to find that I'm getting my first payment as a Minor Poet. I click the "go" button, expecting to just get some jade, moon pearls, or rostygold and be on my way. Instead, my Persuasive went up about 12 points. I really hope I didn't miss any cool storylines. This is an entirely new one to me. I like the idea, I'm just kind of amazed at how easy it seems to make power-leveling in your profession's stat.
Likewise my dangerous level jumped by about the same amount. I was a bit surprised.
My 2 cents, it would be great to hear... or hell... even play in a rolemaster game. The audio here was my first experience with that system and something about that crit table system was a blast to listen too. It really added somethin to what otherwise becomes fairly straight forward, sack of hit points minus some and repeat. I liked that you could have serious repercusions from a lucky hit.
