Up to D&D
Fudge uses seven adjectives instead of numbers for character traits. Which fits perfectly with classic D&D’s seven modifiers for ability scores.
The “assumed score” column is for converting Fudge levels to D&D ability scores.
New players: For some new players Fudge levels can be a little easier to understand than the raw numbers.
NPCs: If you need an ability score for an improvised NPC, select a Fudge level and then use the equivalent modifier or ability score.
Descriptions: When describing characters, the Fudge levels are a bit less mechanical than ability scores. It’s also nice that they aren’t quite exact. Player: “How strong is the guard?” DM: “He appears to have Great Strength.”
Another game, The Secret Fire, has tables of adjectives customized for each ability score.
