I don't know, it seems like a big improvement on RQ3 to me. It essentially
takes the same approach as mongoose RQ, i.e. it separates out the number of
actions you can make each combat round from when you can take them. MRQ
muddies the water by then making the number of actions dependant on DEX so
DEX becomes the god stat again.
