Before the posts were lost, I think we 'agreed' upon 5 attributes and 6 skillpoints per level, though if I remember correctely, Raze opted for a 5/5 division.

Actually, in a brilliant and eloquent post that I will now summarize, I pointed out that with more stat points per level than stats, everything can be boosted and there are no real differences in characters. For example, in DD warriors can ignore intelligence, and pretty much everyone uses the same stat point distribution. In BD, you need to make choices in distributing stat points, and even with the same character type, there are a variety of ways they can be played successfully. In BD I also liked the fact that stat point distribution was not as mechanical as DD. In DD you either needed more constitution to boost hitpoints, or you didn't, and you may or may not have has some better equipment you needed to meet the requirements for. That and your character type pretty much defined where you needed to put your skill points.

Then I argued that even with 5 stats and 5 stat points, there are much fewer tradeoffs you would need to be concerned about when distributing stat points (especially for warriors, who may be able to ignore constitution). This would result in less variety than BD, but would allow more flexible character development than DD.
Personally, for the stat system I prefer the BD to DD, but neither would be one of the things I'd most like to see again in DD2.

After that, everyone agreed with me.

At least, that's the way I remember it.... <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/silly.gif" alt="" />
