As part of the never ending attempts to work on the system the handbook has surfaced again (like jaws it never dies!!!!).

After chatting last week a simple question has arisen:

Should we keep the pre-8th system?

Now the question is simple but the impact is massive.
Amongst instantly available comments are:

Complexity of starting at 8th as a caster.
Dungeon levels, a new player on a 250 could be massively out of their depth.
What happens to ref points.

I could go on, and have about a dozen things on my list. So I'd love to hear comments from people (new and old) about this. Pro's and con's.

Please avoid repeating yourself or getting into debates on individual points. Clear and concise is good smile.gif

This isn't going to be a quick answer, and I am sure this will generate lots of viable outcomes and relevant comments.
