The answer is very simple and something that one of the players down here
did. Calculate the number of counters and have a d100 scale that you roll
the dice for the different levels. It stopped the counter problem but still
kept the huge range of possibilities for damage. far better then the lame D6
usage for every thing. I just don't like the very small range available with
a D6.
