Add the partial wings and you will enjoy 5/8/10. It is very fun.

Heh... I learned BattleTech in the era when +5 magic armor was the vernacular, but you're absolutely right about what it would be these days! :D

is that the same era of bending bars and lifting gates, perhaps? I know for a fact that even someone with a 9 Str can eventually open stuff (I was 16 at the time but when I was much older, it was only then I realized our DM was such as arse-munch to us helpless PCs... *snorts*

Thanks for the kind words.
I tried to make this a 5/8/10 with partial wings. It cannot be done.
