Default URGENT: Rephrase the Skill List!

The way the skill list is written now, some skills trees say "additional" next to the description, while others don't. This makes it sound like the skills with "additional" stack, when the ones without "additional" do not stack. However, this is wrong, as the combat skills actually do stack. This has lead me to mess up some of my character's builds, and judging from some forum posts, others have been confused as well.

The best solution is to rephrase the entire list of skills so that none of the skills stack, and make it very clear at the top of the list that none of the skills stack. This would also make the list of skills much easier to read. For example, instead of

+2 success chance
+3 success chance
+5 success chance


it should say

+2 success chance
+5 success chance
+9 success chance


and instead of

+1 wound
additional +1 wound
additional +1 wound
additional +1 wound
additional +1 wound


it should say

+1 wound
+2 wounds
+3 wounds
+4 wounds
+5 wounds


and instead of

+1% chance to find loot
additional +2% chance...
additional +3% chance...
additional +4% chance....


it should say

+1%...
+3%...
+6%...
+10%...

Ah agree, except with the Wounds; your propossed change makes it sounds like you get +4 Wounds at rank 4, instead of having 4 extra 'HP', for a total of 10 (ie 1+2+3+4=10)

Yeah, it should probably say +# Max Wounds, instead of +# Wounds.

Modified it so for that TOAD skills beyond the first one it says "Additional". Hopefully that's clearer.

The "+1 Wound" skills will soon be rephrased to "+1 Max Wounds" too.

It is clearer, thanks.

In general, just be consistent. Either always say, "additional," or always just have the total listed. Don't mix and match.
