higher ground attack bonus house rule

Attack bonuses for favorable terrain, higher ground, or being mounted on a creature at least one size larger than a defender are increased to +2, and apply to ranged attacks as well as melee. Likewise, the penalty for being on lower ground or attacking a mounted opponent is increased to -2. This penalty can be partially offset by using a reach weapon or any weapon designated as two-handed (not just a one-handed used with both hands). This reduces the penalty to -1.
