I posted this in another forum but I made a couple of errors in my explanation and wanted to get the players view as well.
I am thinking about coming back to the Hero system and have a question. I know that OCV and DCV are used for pretty much everything. Characteristics like DEX and PRE can affect certain skills but for the most part OCV and DCV are king. With that said are most rolls basically one of those two characteristics combined with points, gained through skills, and basic modifiers? For example someone with 6 OCV and no modifiers would be able to hit any DCV below 17. If the defender however had an appropriate counter such as skill points in a melee attack vs a melee attack they could use those to lower that 17 to whatever number of points they had to spend? Also are all combat modifiers relating directly to characters themselves (excluding environmental modifiers) tied to combat skills.
