No, stamina points for beginning characters are still very low, but are going to increase more rapidly. The grades are now much smaller steps and easy to climb. On the other hand, even "mid-level" characters now have very high grade numbers (20 or more), which might not be to everybody's taste. I personally like it.So it is nice to hear that Midgard 5E finally got more streamlined again. Did they change the super low stamina points for beginning characters ?
That was always annoying.
In effect, a beginning character tires easily and will be exhausted long before she is seriously injured. You might call that a quite sensible learning effect.
On the plus side, small "races" (gnomes and halflings) were rather at a disadvantage on stamina points for their whole career, which sucked because stamina points are the bread and butter of adventuring - among other things, they are the "energy" used for spells. Now the little guys have fewer life points, but are equal in stamina to the big ones.
