If the Proposal titled “Six isn’t much higher than Five” passed, reverse its effects.
In rule “Duels”, change

* If both Combatants Punched, Kicked or Grabbed one another, then the Combatant with the lowest Strength, Skill or Reflex score (respectively) takes Damage. If they have the same score, neither takes Damage.

* If both Combatants Punched, Kicked or Grabbed one another, then the Combatant with the lowest Strength, Skill or Reflex score (respectively) takes Damage. If the difference in that score (between both Combatants) is 3 or greater, that Clansman takes Crushing Damage instead. If both Combatants have the same score, neither takes Damage.

for Maybe a bit painful over a long fight, though. Perhaps only the first tie of a match should cause damage.

against .  I don’t like how this gives a 9/9/9 Clansman an advantage over an 8/8/11 Clansman.  Perhaps if we had it deal no damage unless there’s a difference of at least 3, then that would be agreeable to most of us.

against The stats are supposed to break ties, right? But in this case, you might rather tie.

Actually, I take that back.  The difference-of-3 wouldn’t really change anything because it wouldn’t introduce any real asymmetry (which the random version does).
