I have been thinking about the Defense skill and how to simplify its use for a while. I want to get rid of the mechanic where GM’s have to keep track of Defense points (a secondary pool of hitpoints generated every round through a Defense skill check, see the Core Rulebook, pages 43 and 58) and other armor-related details. I’ve had an idea that has made me rethink some other uses of Skills as well.
