So I’ve been thinking about how combat is going to work. What do y’all think of doing a very very light DND feel, and we roll a die to see how effective our last post was. For example:
Vivian dodges the thrown knife and throws one of her own, striking the foe in the arm.
I’d then roll a 20 faced die, and if it’s a 20, it happened exactly like that. If it’s like a 15, she mostly got out of the way, maybe a scratch but the damage from the knife she threw maybe hit him, but not anywhere that’ll slow him down. At a 5, she’d get hit by the knife somewhere hindering, and be pretty hurt, and her knife wouldn’t hit strong, barely a graze. At 1, the knife would hit somewhere vital, and she’d miss the foe entirely.
Not exactly like this, but I’m brainstorming, this way not everyone comes out on top all the time, and it would mix up our plans. We could do a 10 face die, or more. I’m up for discussion. Only thing is, idk how to do that on this site, on my other one the option is attached to each post.
I think we could use the dice system. For example: roleplayerguild.com/rolls/20991 Dangit I rolled a 2. Zav attacks the elf, but misses and faceplants in the dirt. The elf slams her sword down through Zav's organic hand.
It's not a bad idea? But I'm wondering how we prove the dice rolls are legit while incorporating them into the post.
I thought about that too, and idk how to ensure it so I’m leaning towards no. On Iwaku (other to site I use), they have it listed under the post and how many attempts. Would copying and linking it work? Does it show how much one rolls?
If you click back to the dice campaign title, it will take you to: roleplayerguild.com/campaigns/809 which shows how many rolls have been made for that campaign. There is also an option to make notes when you roll so you can put a brief description of what each roll was for.
