comment Are Savage Worlds & Apocalypse World the same thing?
As a sidenote, the Savage Worlds system was not created from scratch, it evolved from the system originally used in Deadlands.

Mmmm... a negative vote? Why? Is the answer incorrect or unclear?

comment What is the ideal Numenera party size, and the practical min and max?
I am not sure that quote answers the question. It only makes it clear that concepts like "challenge" and "experience" / "level" are not tightly bound together (unlike, say, DnD4). Still the game may be designed for games of a certain size due to the mechanics (unlikely) or the in-game history (unlikely too, I guess).

That is very interesting. I do not know those games. Feel free to edit the answer or post an informative link and I will improve it.

There is (at least) a third case that you have not considered. Some games use the same dice roll to hit and for damage: e.g. three dice of different colours added together to hit; if you hit, the black die is the damage.

Penalties stack, levels do not (three wounds and one fatigue does not make you incapacitated).
