I seem to be getting a lot less wounds period this playthrough, I've yet to lose someone from 5 wounds yet.

Some spells, for example, would need many more points to be developed, if they are from a different source.
I think I remember that a similar thing goes for several talents as well.

I do hope that Drakensang 2 will be more faithful to the pen & paper rules, and this will mean that it will be a partly different and perhaps even harder game.

Regeneration of magic is, for example, MUCH, much slower in the pen & paper rules !
I bow to your knowledge of the Dark Eye PnP rules. I have no experience with them. The sum of my Dark Eye knowledge comes from Drakensang and faint memories of Star Trail.

The cross-skill/talent certainly would encourage less generalized characters, though I think Radon made the right choice by keeping it as newbie friendly as possible, for most of us this is our first taste of the ruleset and there's already a lot to learn.

Ouch, I would think even slower magic regen would really make mages even less powerful.
