D&D 1E a system to purchase special abilities and skills

le Redoutable

Call me the Gaspi
it says that
1° you have a base cost
2° you have a level of mastery

to find the actual xp cost of your skill or ability ( s_o_a ) you add Base Rank ( b r ) to level of mastery ( l m ) and refer to Global Rank ( G_R )

G_R cost

-9 2
-8 4
-7 8
-6 15
-5 30
-4 60
-3 125
-2 250

18 1.5M
19 1.625M
20 1.75M
21 1.875M
22 2M
23 2.125M
24 2.25M
25 2.375M
26 2.5M
27 2.625M
28 2.75M
29 2.875M
30 3M

the actual base cost of any s_o_a varies from -6 + L_M for a Thief's abilities, to a -2 + L_M for a bonus to THAC0;

example with THAC0:

you wish to have a +7 to your THAC0;
it will cost you -2 +7 =+5 ===> 30k xp

using Fighter's xp table, a Fighter of 7th Level has got 64k xp ( that I drop to 60k );
so a +7, which looks like a THAC0 of a 7th Level Fighter, requires half of the xp that this character owns;



as usual, the skeleton is good, then specialists ( if got involved ) should balance things a bit :)

because of course the Fighter above needs Hit Points, Extra Attacks etc
