This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

these rules for a few simple reasons, quick charactorgame setups. These Rules are a cross between wargamy and RPG. You are less invested in the charactors but they still retain individual advantages. its wargmmy because you can quickly create charactors and have many of them. You can build better charactors by collecting more advantages. NPCs are NOT premade, you simply roll 2D6s for advantages abd a normal roll each time a roll is needed

a normal roll used for everything but may be modified by advantages is = roll 5 D6s and drop top two

advantages are a result of abilities equipment and skills. all advantages are stackable, that means you can get an advantage more than once EG using a gun may give you an advantage of E) and being superhuman like a vampire may also give you an advantage E) so you could reroll twice.but only effective if the advantage allows so A) & A) only gives one A)

you get a set of advantages at charactor creation, but you could gain advantages like pickingup a gun.
 

advantage A) add a D6 to the 5 d6s              (value 6 point advantage)
advantage B) roll 5 D6s and drop bottom d6 only (value 5 point advantage)
advantage C) roll 5 D6s and drop top d6 only    (value 4 point advantage)
advantage D) roll 5 D6s and drop bottom two     (value 3 point advantage)
advantage E) reroll                             (value 2 point advantage)
advantage F) roll 3d6s and drop none            (value 1 point advantage)

 
disadvantages cancel out advantages but only if you have that advantage, so being injured may cancel A) & B).

every disadvatage  temp cancels advantages, you roll 2 D6s, 1s = Cancels A) , 2s cancels B) , 3s cancels C) , 4s cancels D) , 5s cancels E) , 6s cancels F). they dont cancel all As Bs etc.. just one for each D6 rolled so if you roll a 2 it would cancel a B) advantage but not two Bs. Disadvantages are things like wounds, poisened.

example charactor sheets

avarage man = E) F)
Vampire = E) A) B)
Skeleton = F)
Zombie = E) E)

difficulty table

19 almost impossible
17 extreamly hard
14 very hard
12 hard
10 easy
8 very easy
6 extreamly easy
4 trivial

roll your dice and use any of your advantages, but also you must apply your disadvantages, compare to the difficulty chart, if you pass then you roll an oposing 5 D6s, EG is breaking through a wood door you roll 5 D6s dropping the top two 2 3 3 if 8 is higher than your roll then it will stop you breaking the door. If a charactor is opposing you you can use that charactors advantages and dissadvantages.

example

your charactor sheet is Vampire, your advantages could be E) A) B). you have been injured and have one disadvantage. You decide to climb a wall and go through a window so a skill check is required. A skill check normal roll is 5 D6s but drop the highest two D6s. but before you roll you have to roll 2 D6s for your disavantage - you get 2 & 3 (B & C) you have b ADVANTAGE SO YOU LOSE b THIS ROLL. You now roll your 5 D6s you get 1 1 2 5 4, you use your A) advantage and drop the bottom 2 D6s instead of the usual top 2 D6s, mthat leaves 2 5 4 , the task is classed as easy 10 and you got 11 so you dont need to use your E) advantage of a reroll. You now roll an opposing roll of 5 D6s and drop top two, the opposing roll is trying to stop you by scoring higher than you BUT in this case the roll is 2,2,3,3,4 and the top two are droped = 2 2 3 = 7 so you have suceeded.

Example Charactor creation

Charactor creation is kept simple to keep inline with simplisty of the rules. you start with two advantages you roll for.

roll 2 d6s, 6s gets you an A), 5s gets you an B), 4s gets you an C), 3s gets you an D), 2s gets you an E), 1s gets you an F)
You can gain more Advanges as you play by finding treasure or taking advanges of other charactors, or buying them, or stealing them, you can also have temarary advantages

NPCs are NOT premade, you simply roll 2D6s , 6s gets you an A), 5s gets you an B), 4s gets you an C), 3s gets you an D), 2s gets you an E), 1s gets you an F) for advantages and then apply to a normal roll each time a roll is needed

Combat

Ifa charactor attacks another, you roll against eachother by using a normal roll adding advanges and deisadvantages, the loser has to roll a D6 on the following Table

If a NPC loses an attack you dont roll on the table instead the NPC runs away.

1 No iffect
2 lose 1 health
3 lose 2 health
4 stunned lose one turn
5 knocked out
6 Killed
