Climb checks seem broken (no bonus for checks, no damage on failure) EDITED

  • Halfling with +1 str, +3 dex, +4 tumble, 4 ranks in athletics (CoAss), and no armor worn, I'm getting a +0 for climb checks. Probably should have some sort of a bonus.

    Armor check penalty seems fine, though, and is applied (tested with an armor with -2 and a large shield -2 results in climb check being -4)

    Failing a climb check seems to always deal 0 damage (tested in Arabel, Historic District)

    EDIT: A Half Orc with +4 str and no armor and no ransk in tumble/athletics gets +6 to the check. I assume there's a penalty for small characters. An half-orc with +6 str gets +10 on the check (again with no ranks tumble/athletics).
    I want to point out that in pnp, you don't get a climb penalty for being small. In fact, halflings get +2 to climb checks for some reason.

    Anyway, math seems off.

    @Haquin something for you

    The system is quite complex really, it takes into account how much weight you are carrying not only your current STR and armor check penalty. But I doubt it was updated with CoAss skills, so I'll take a look.
