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.

Targeting & Armor Avoidance 2
« on: November 22, 2020, 04:15:03 pm »
This is an optional sub-system for Glory Road combat. It is optional because it adds a layer of complexity to an already-complex combat system. When I was ready to publish the full game rules, I realized that the targeting and armor avoidance system we had used over the years was too complex and had largely fallen into disuse, although it was quite popular with some, a sizeable minority, of the players. This is a much simpler system, although it is still not simple.
It does, however, have its advantages. It often makes combat quicker. Using the sub-system may make one round of combat more complex but it can reduce the number of combat rounds. It gives the combatants more meaningful options. If the player-characters use it and their foes do not, it can give the PCs a unique advantage. I admit that I am a meanie and the NPC foes of my characters will use these options but they don’t use them as often as the PCs.
