  • I don't think anything of this nature (penalty at low ini, bonus at high) is going to really speed up combat. You might shave a round or so off a fight, but you could do the same thing by just switching to narrative mode when the fight is clearly won. 3e combat slows down partially because there are a lot of rolls, and largely because everyone has a lot of abilities to plug in to each of their rolls:

I'm seeing a Trojan Horse sort of trap now. The two Warstrider pilots are waiting in a clearing, with their mechs waiting behind them, both looking like they're in pretty bad shape and half-stuck in difficult terrain. If questioned, they...
