Coordination has long been ruled as having no effect on a warrior. I have noticed a few things that may be the cause of certain coordination levels. So I decided to write this article to give the general DM populace something to ponder. Below is the coordination table: Coordination = SP + DF 06 - 16 = Clumsy 17 - 20 = Slightly Uncoordinated 21 - 27 = Normal 28 - 31 = Highly Coordinated 32 - 39 = Very Highly Coordinated 40 - 42 = Marvel of Fighting Coordination Since I run a lot of bashers that have a clumsy rating most of the time, I noticed a few things that happen to them and not the high coordination warriors I have. Most people don't have clumsy warriors, save some bashers and TPs, so it may not be paid that much attention to. The first thing I have noticed is that a clumsy warrior seems to drop his weapon more often than a higher coordination warrior. So I think that maybe he has a higher chance to do this than normally coordinated warriors. Second, I noticed that clumsy warriors have harder time trying to quick draw their back-up weapon, causing them to fumble around trying to get it. Third is that the clumsy warrior also is slower to get up after he has been knocked down. It may also influence the roll on whether you get knocked down or not, along with other factors. These things aren't as noticeable the higher the coordination becomes. That's probably why a lot of people don't place any value on coordination. At the higher levels of the game there aren't any clumsy warriors, so coordination isn't noticed. You can still get knocked down, lose your weapon, and draw your back-up quickly, but the odds are more in your favor with a higher coordination in my opinion. Well, may joy and happiness be with you.
