Before this gets kicked off too much, I'm seeing a bit of a future issue with basic enemies instant-killing players.

Just for some statistics. It seems like your basic level one character will start with a +15-20 on their attacks, for the moment, it seems like this holds true for most NPCs as well.

Basically, there's a 15% chance that your basic grunt will instantly kill a character with any given attack, meaning an average character can only suffer 6-7 attacks before being instantly killed. It seems like there might be dodge saves involved as well, so if we can assume a 60 roll to succeed, with an average boost of about 15, means you have a 65% chance of dodging a super-critical attacks.

.15 * .45 = .098

Above, I've multiplied the chance of an NPC making a super-critical with the chance of a player failing their dodge. The end result is not much better, your average character can survive 10-11 attacks on average before being instantly killed.

Especially considering the effort that people put into their characters, along with the effort the mods go about approving them, I think this constitutes a problem.

To solve this, I have a few solutions, any one will work:
1) Reduce or eliminate attack roll modifiers for most, if not all NPCs. - Might help them be a little less deadly
2) Cap the maximum attack roll an NPC can make at 99. - Probably reasonably doable.
3) Institute a "Mojave Courier" special save against criticals, using Luck - More abstract, but not all that bad.
4) Cap the maximum attack roll on basic weapons at 99 - Lots of effort, but might give more incentive to get high level gear.

Anyway, just wanted to put this out there!

That's what the Hi'iaka Systems are for. They are some Institute style secret underground laboratories in where the scientists research in cloning and life extending tech. More info here: http://fallout-nukaloha.forumotion.com/f18-o-ahu

In case a character dies abruptly or in a unfair death we the Admins will give you the chance of being "revived" by them. But this won't come cheap, you'll have to complete a quest for them.
