Geomorph G13: Winch and Basket

Here's a bit of simple machinery that is not a trap, but is actually useful. Geomorph G13 shows a large pit, presumably too deep to simply jump into. There's a winch system to lower a huge basket down to the bottom of the pit. On the opposite side is a tunnel to one exit and stairs up to another. There are two other exits that overlook the pit, but are unconnected to the other exits; one of these actually leads to a broad ledge that *might* be within jumping distance of the top of the staircase.

    And tell me what you think works best.

  2. I'm against the flat bonuses for level or ability scores, myself, although your rules do simplify the DSG rules. I thought I'd written about jumping before, but apparently not...
