Originally posted by Doro Or even N-4, if starter psi types need it then N-4 is enough of a challenge at lvl 1-10. The step change from N-3 to N-4 is emormous. I'll take exception to the N4/N5 idea.

I would sure hate to see the Nork/etc experience diminished for anyone but given the scope of players some constraints do seem fair. Since lairs Nork thru Cob were designed for the equipment of the land shouldn't they also be restricted to the knowledge/skill of the lower lands. This leaves crits X/...
