I always enjoyed this game, but was never a fan of the official combat method. Even the official dice variant left too much lag time in figuring out the outcome of each battle. After coming across your variant, I ordered myself some 2nd edition descent dice(since my 1st edition weren't quite doing the job). This old favorite has been given a revival and it's actually fun to go through combat as well(though it'll likely mean a quicker death). Either way, thank you very much for making an old favorite even better.
