Kaftan Barlast Posted December 28, 2005 Share Posted December 28, 2005 Im right now n the proces of designing my own PnP ruleset as a kid of semi-school thing (im studying computer game design/development) and Im wondering ow many of you have tried this and what your experiences were? Right now my rules have these basics Made for modern campaigns focusing on firearms Percentage/decimal, d100 based No classes No levels, experience earned can be spent at any time your character is idle. Damage levels instead of hit points Rules rely on attributes(like intelligence) skills (like flying a helicopter) and derivates (like D&Ds will or fortsaves) in equal measure. Often games wont fully use attributes for anything else but to calculate AC etc. In this game youll make rolls based on your attributes like you would do with a skill or anything else. You have a "roof" that youll have to roll under instead of a "waterline" that youll have to roll over. If skill X is at 46% 23 will mean a success and 57% will mean failiure. Difficult or beneficial circumstances either subtract or add to your skill. Shooting at a moving target will lower your chance to hit by giving you f.ex -10% on your weapon skill so youll have to roll under 30% instead of 40%. Shooting a target at point blank range will add maybe 20% to your skill insted. A weapons damage is based upon the ammunition it fires and not properties of the gun itself. Right now this sounds very similar to SPECIAL or CoC 5th ed but I wont go into the unique features right now... furthermore I have to eat diner now so Ill BRB DISCLAIMER: Do not take what I write seriously unless it is clearly and in no uncertain terms, declared by me to be meant in a serious and non-humoristic manner. If there is no clear indication, asume the post is written in jest. This notification is meant very seriously and its purpouse is to avoid misunderstandings and the consequences thereof. Furthermore; I can not be held accountable for anything I write on these forums since the idea of taking serious responsability for my unserious actions, is an oxymoron in itself. Important: as the following sentence contains many naughty words I warn you not to read it under any circumstances; botty, knickers, wee, erogenous zone, psychiatrist, clitoris, stockings, bosom, poetry reading, dentist, fellatio and the department of agriculture. "I suppose outright stupidity and complete lack of taste could also be considered points of view. " Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
