| >>Is the scale for stats-to-skills being reworked?|
Yeah, the scales are changing dramatically in DR3. The super-expensive stats will still suffer from diminishing returns, though. They're for purchasing when you have enough TDPs to spare (which many of you do) and you do want that edge.
>>Is Hiding-scale being split across multiple stats? Please say yes!
I don't know what this means.
>> Also, are there any significant changes in which stats scale what skills?
Yes and no. In Combat and Magic, absolutely. In other systems, not much has changed thus far.
>>Will the "few skills" bonus give my tert lore and magic skill sets the absorption rate of a secondary or primary skill set?
Possibly. I haven't nailed down the specific bonuses/penalties yet.
