Roll 1d12, add modifiers, compare it to a target number. If you roll that number or higher, you succeed. If you roll lower, you fail. There are no automatic Misses, and dice explode. Any time you roll a 12, roll again and add that number to your total.
Difficulties: 2 Simple, 5 Easy, 7 Normal, 10 Difficult, 11 Hard, 13 Incredible, 15 Amazing,17 Epic, 20 mythic.
If you want to use 2d6 use these:
3 Simple, 5 Easy, 6 Normal, 9 Difficult, 10 Hard, 12 Incredible, 15 Amazing, 17 Epic, 20 Mythic
GMs: the standard difficulty for any action is Normal, moving up or down the scale for any modifiers that apply. A watchful guard with Will plus 1 would require an 11 to sneak past (One step for watchful, + 1 for Will)
If a PC wants to do something with where failure is possible and interesting, the GM will assign a difficulty. On a success, the PC succeeds. On a failure the player chooses to fail or to succeed with a complication.
Cast a Spell: If you have combat casting, you can cast a spell during a fight. Spend SP and resolve the effect.
Special effects from spells are avoided or ended by a + Mystic roll vs the caster’s level. Check once per round in combat. Unless an effect
Pick a player to make a + Will roll. They should be in the best position to see the opponents. The difficulty is the highest difficulty in the opponent’s side. If they pass, the party gets to act for a round without response. If they fail by 6, the other side gets to ambush them, Encounters start at Far distance.
The player who rolled goes first. Each player picks who goes next (PC or NPC)
Movement is across zones: Melee, Close, Far. A character can move 1 zone per point of Quick they possess and take an action. If their Quick is 0 they may move 1. If Quick is < 0, they may move 1 or take an action. Reduce movement by 1 per heavy item carried or worn. 6 Normal items = 1 heavy.
Actions you may take 1 action (attack, skill, use an item, cast a spell (with combat casting)
Attack you roll your hit + stat (strong in melee, Quick in ranged combat) vs the difficulty of your target. Do your damage (weapon + stat – opponent’s defense) If you hit, even if you do no damage, apply the attack’s special. Each time the dice explode, add your weapon + stat to the total damage you do.
Defense Your defense number is subtracted from all damage done by a hit. AP x attacks decrease the defense value against that attack
When you fail a skill roll, mark XP. When you survive a Combat Mark XP.
When your XP is greater than or equal to your level +4, erase your level + 4 marks and gain a level. Gain HP and add a new class feature. If you have 5 or more class features, you may pick from the advanced features as well. Humans may pick an advanced feature at 4th level while all other races can pick one at 5th level. You may only take each feature once. After tenth level you still accumulate XP but do not further level. If you lose enough xp to bring your total marks below 0, lose a level and count backward from the max p for that level.
