Heyo!

Nothing in the basic mechanics has been changed since the system was created. What -did- change was the experience system. Everyone now has much larger pools, and drain rates may not be what you remember as well. As a result, some skills will -appear- to be much harder to train than before. This is mostly an illusion -- the bits of experience folks are gaining now is actually higher than it was when the system was first released. The problem is that I bumped up the reward, say, 50%, but the pool size was doubled...so it seems like you are gaining experience much more slowly. This is compounded by drain rates being more of a constant.

I do have some things planned for teaching to help out the truly good teachers, but I need to deal with some combat overhauls first.
