It's funny, I figured I didn't need to mention the system but I wasn't sure until you. Thanks Anon.
I know the system well enough that I Can balance it in several ways, I'm just looking for advice on how to approach doing so. I know the system well enough that once my course is set it'll be an easy matter to apply the changes or in-game events to even things out.
And yes, I have played other systems. I like this one and I wouldn't run something the players weren't interested in playing. We've used other systems in the past, this is just the one I chose to use in this case.
