Thats it exactly. Of course in my explanation above I was thinking of the
standard procedure in S&P for determining subabilities. But again any racial
bonus to Strength should always convert over into percentage points(each +1
= +10%), when the 18 mark is hit. At least until you reach 18/00. When using
S&P, the PC has to decide which subability is getting the racial bonus,
before actually rolling the dice for it. All of this is IMHO, of course.
