Au'rune takes his horse by the reigns, checks his bearings to confirm Krux is heading in the right direction, and once sure, contines the single file train behind Sphere.

Alternate Initiative

<t>I just finished reading the rules to All Flesh Must Be Eaten, Eden Studio's zombie game. Like C&C it is rules light and heavy cinematic, although it is a skill based system versus class. Overall, its an interesting ruleset that I'm looking forward to trying.<br/> <br/> Anyway, the way they ha...

<t>Cool. I particularly like 2c, Crunchy Actions. It reminds me of Everway where they had three aspects of task resolution: Fate, Fortune, and Drama. Fate is what you can determine by attributes, Fortune is a draw of their tarot-like deck, and Drama is the narrative used. All three work together to ...

Au'rune watches Sphere get up and make his way to the exit, and thinks to himself: There is precious little I must do, and the world is a big place.

"Aye Sphere," says Au'rune. "We are all bound to the Mage." He then mutters to himself, "And I, for now."

<t>We do need limitations as well. Personally, for a pit or trap, I'd add the character level and also adjust the level of the challenge. In that case, you could get better.

<t>I agree that using an unmodified roll is better than a modified roll. That sounds like a good change. However, that also means that all hits against a knight in full plate and shield from a low level monster will also result in a C,D, or E critical. I suppose that will keep high-level characters ...
