They should move away from attribute checks and more towards skill and class/ability checks.

Well technically, if we're going lorewise, fighters, rogues etc. can cast spells. :)

From scrolls, yes. And they can use their soul-power to do strikes, but they can't cast actual spells from their own power, because they don't have the training to know how to do so.

True, but that also restricts offering magical alternatives to Might checks.

Now I've got an image in my head like those movies where everyone stands in a circle holding a gun on one another, only with people holding magical scrolls.

 

"Put the scroll down!"

 

"You put YOUR scroll down!"

 

"Nobody move or I'm reading this scroll...and I'm a trained speed reader!"

 

"On the count of three, lets all put our scrolls down and talk this over like mature adults."

 

"Dangnabit Jethro, you can't dual wield scrolls, you just look stupid, you can't read either one and you're not covering anybody..."

 

etc.

They should use whatever makes the most sense for the circumstances.

The only thing about the whole might thing that was strange was that it was kinda treated like strength in the interactions, so my Wizard for whom I pumped might through the roof, so that those fireball really hurt, could also lift very heavy stuff, push down walls etc with his bare hands.

You channel all your fireball rage into fists. Also helps with not killing everyone else around you :cat:
