You could get 12 skill and than add 4 skill points. You would have 4 skill above standard Fighting Fantasy rules. With in the new system a character will have a skill anywhere between 4-7. Assuming the player chooses 7 and 2 points in a weapon, they now have 9 skill against a monster, which seems to be the average of most monsters and it allows the player to fight the monsters in Out of the Pit or even any game book, without any adjustment.
That's true, but I suppose ideally one would provide attack & armour rolls for each monster (recall the AFF2 rulebook had to include an extra table to add some of these details), and perhaps also some special combat rules. Some of the extra rules given in OoTP are a bit wonky.
