str, dex, int and possibly wis come into play on chance to hit,
and high strength increases damage, con increases hitpoints,
and cha, as in D&D is useless.

When a character tries to hit, a random number between 1 and 20
is generated, thaco, modifiers, and such are applied to the
roll, and then it is checked against the opponants ac to see
if it hit.  However, if the unmodified random number was a 1,
it is an automatic miss...(the best warriors still miss sometimes),
and a 20 is always a hit (Peasants drag the knights off their horses).

level two cleric would hit a well armored knight only on a natural 20
(1 in 20 odds)

Already been done...besides situation

a really high level weapon may have low damage but high bonuses
to stats or hit/damroll, this system would not take that into account.
Use level stat on objects.
