Houserule: Floating Skill Pyramid

  • If a character/NPC has every skill listed on their skill Pyramid, then the lowest rung (Average +1) no longer applies to the requirement for a pyramid shape.
  • Similarly, if every single skill is again upgraded to at least Fair +2, then THAT rung of the Pyramid also no longer applies for the pyramid shape requirements, and so on up the Pyramid.

In this way, absurdly powerful characters Skills are not hampered by the lowest levels of the Skill Pyramid.
