Re: Rule of three

Penalties and bonuses are counted separately. Penalties do not crowd out bonuses. You are correct in that the three largest penalties apply. The player chooses which three bonuses apply to their character. The Rule of Three was kept for two reasons - one, to prevent powergaming, and two, because 187...
