I think that is interesting.
I'd rather go with penalties to skill, though. It sort of has
a similar effect a lot of the time, but it gets back to the high
level combat being boring issue.
If it comparison based, then two equallty skilled opponents
still have a pretty boring time.
If it is based on penalties to roll, then two skilled
opponents (say, 150%) effectively have a nice skill buffer before
they lower their chance that gives them freedom to try some
interesting combat options, which potentially makes combat
