Initial Skill Variant

Tue Oct 21 14:30:38 CEST 1997

When characters learn ANY skill (combat skills included -- it's a couple
of percent gain for pete's sake!), their initial level in the skill is
equal to the LOWEST attribute in the maximum level formula, not the
highest as specified in Book 1.

We have tried this and it works pretty well.  The LOWEST factor prevents
players from hyping up a single attribute and then getting a ton of
skills at insane levels for starting level.
