I would like it if Hardie Target's defensive abilities were much higher. Average ganger level or better. I'd eve like it if you could make Softie harder. (Sorry, the double meaning might be crass but I am immature!!!)
I think that even a combat optimized new character should be missing Softie half the time even when using an offensive posture and Hardie should be out of the question.
Of course, there might be very good reasons why things are they way they are and in that case, at least I we had the chance to talk about making Hardie hard for a few moments.
