So say a figure with a height of 8 (like Krug) was adjacent to a figure with a height of five (like Sgt Drake). Say Sgt Drake's base is three levels above Krug's base. Does Sgt Drake still have height advantage and roll an extra di when attacking Krug and an extra di when defending from him?
Yes, Drake does still get height advantage bonuses. You only take height of a figure into account for adjacency reasons, and when figuring out if you have major height advantage or not.

My customs.

Yes. Only the relative position of the bases matter. Yes, its odd, but its a game, not a simulation.

Your custom probably has too much Defense.

I like to think of it as size has already been calculated into your stats. Plus, it would be much easier for a human to take on a troll if he was an extra foot closer to his neck.

I never knew this. I always just thought the range and attack couldn't receive bonuses. Are there other special attacks that also use a d20?
