Good evening ladies and gentlemen of /tg/! A few weeks ago we succesfully ran a duel -- a fecht -- between two fully-armored knights...in FATAL! And now we're going to do it again. I'll need your help!Last time, we had two guys in full platemail hammering at each other. It quickly resulted in spaghetti everywhere. This time, the same two guys will have at each other with polearms! And this time, they'll be nearly unarmored. And if you're interested, I may be able to run a magic duel afterwards.Let's get this trainwreckstarted.
>>24482103Colour me interested.
Guy who requested this fight here.My body is extremely ready, Fechtbro.
Let's do this shit!
http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/24153803/Last fecht thread is here. I think the pastes still work.
Last time, we had 29-year-old knight Helmin Waad, armed with a zweihander*, take on young up-and-coming Laurence Houby, a 23-year-old, a knight who prefers mace & board.In their titanic battle, Waad severed Houby's weapon hand and Houby responded by breaking Waad's own right hand. Their plate armor was largely meaningless in the face of lucky dice. This time, they'll be in their common clothes. Waad will wield a Bec de Corbin, while Houby, victor of the previous duel, will use a Bill.Here are Helmin Waad and Laurence Houby's FULL statistics. You've been warned.Waad - http://paste2.org/eEPMPGt9Houby - http://paste2.org/KH4a459U*Zweihanders in FATAL, the most extensively researched RPG off the market, has 6-foot-long, 2-handed swords listed as weighing 15 lbs. This has been heavily debunked prior to and after the writing of FATAL. Historical accuracy!>>24482272>implying anonymous does not deliver
>>24482337Is it Body Parts Body Parts time?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8TLlbVW-VA0
I'm holding out for the magic duel. I don't even know how that will work in practice.
>>24482337I assume they possess all their limbs in functioning condition right? No lingering injuries?
>>24482337Now, these statistics have not been updated to account for their new weapons. They're assuming each person is using their previous gear. Let's correct that.I will calculate the appropriate delivery penalties and get back to you guys. Additionally I'll be happy to answer any questions you have!>>24482383Are you familiar with D&D-type Touch spells, like Shocking Grasp? Things you need to touch your target to activate? It'll be like that in the middle of a street brawl. Or, possibly, killing each other from 150 feet away. It remains to be seen.In the meantime, have a look at the spells the wizards in such a duel may have at their disposal.
>>24482413Yes! Each fighter was able to magically regenerate their damaged or lost hand. It's all thanks to the clerical healers in the Southern Queendoms' domains.
>>24482337My money is on the guy with the pencil-dick>dat 165 strength
>>24482505Speaking of that. The best fulcrum point for Waad to use on his Bec de Corbin is about a little over half-way up the handle. Any further down the shaft than that and he'll suffer a penalty to his hit roll!It wasn't difficult to compute. I imagine the weaker Houby will have a lot more trouble with his MUCH longer and heavier Bill.Of course, if either fighter loses an arm or a hand this time, they're likely out of luck!
>>24482646>This fucking systemWhere we're going, we don't need intuitive mechanics to play.
>>24482337Some highlights from Houby's sheet:>Occupation: Knight>Social Class: SlaveFATAL, the most extensively researched RPG off the market!>Neutral Moral w/Neutral tendenciesLet me repeat that:>Neutral tendenciesAnd of course, what FATAL is famous for:>Anal Circumference Potential: 6>Manhood Length: 5.66667>Manhood Circumference: 5.15383Yes, it is apparently necessary to calculate the size of Houby's dick to the fifth decimal place. As anyone who has ever had sex knows, it's that last hundredth of an thousandth of an inch that matters.
>>24482791A slave Knight? Actually sounds kinda cool.
Oh my. It seems Houby chose the wrong weapon. The Bill is so heavy that to swing it effectively he'll need to hold it almost at the blade head. Perhaps the fighters ought to switch weapons after this bout!>>24482686Oh, yes. That's just for the pounding head of the hammer. It's different if you wish to use the stabbing head.>>24482791>Social class: SlaveAt first this was me saying "Slave? Nah, he's a knight!" Then I realized, in Neveria ("a sourcebook for FATAL"), the southern part of one of the known continents is ruled by queens. I call them the Southern Queendoms. And what better way to express that than by having slave knights?>it's the last hundredth of an inch that mattersYa dang right.
>>24482828The Janissaries could be sorta described as that.
>>24482828That wouldn't be a gladiator or something?>>24482791What the fuck?5 inch length, 5 inch circumference? Its length and circumference are equal? I have seen many cocks on my life, and yet I can't picture such... square cock...
>>24482847>the southern part of one of the known continents is ruled by queens.What? I thought women in FATAL existed only to be raped.
>>24482857>I have seen many cocks on my lifeGo on.
>>24482866>implying queens were never raped
>>24482857>Does not understand the difference between circumference and diameter
>>24482857>>24482505Alright, from now on, I will refer to Waad and Houby as Pencildick and Squarecock.
Has anyone ever run a successful campaign with this system?
>>24482857Average dicks have about the same circumference as length
>>24482907>>24482936http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_penis_size>A review published in the 2007 issue of BJU International showed the average erect penis length to be 14–16 cm (5.5–6.3 in) and girth to be 12–13 cm (4.7–5.1 in).In average, the largest circumference for human penis is barely on the same range than the average length. So, it could be said that having the same length and circumference is rare to say the least.
>>24483031It helps when you remember not to confuse circumference with diameter.
>>24483036Fair point. Still, however, from the same link:> In three studies of penis size where measurements were taken in a laboratory setting, the range of average penis circumference when erect was 3.5 to 3.9 inches (8.9 to 9.9 centimetres)So, talking about average penis size, the circumference is far lower than the average length.
>>24483031>He doesn't have a 3-inch wide monster cockMan, you must get like, no bookmarks on F-list.
OK guys, thanks for waiting. Here's the Delivery Penalties and Initiative modifiers for these two men on their Initiative rolls. I did it wrong last time. A fighter's breadth -- the length of their arm -- only matters for the FIRST initiative in the combat. Why? Well, the book says the fighters are assumed to be moving around, screaming, shouting, and this makes arm length not matter after the first three seconds of combat.In Riddle of Steel (and presumably in the upcoming game by John Galt & friends, Song of Swords! Check it out! >>24467708), the smallest unit of combat time is an Exchange. An Exchange is 1.5 seconds long. Two Riddle of Steel Exchanges are equivalent to one round in FATAL.So here's the deal. Initiative is rolled every round for each fighter. The roll is 1d100 plus or minus modifiers.Waad's initiative rolls will suffer a -102 penalty if he tries to Pound with the hammer head of his weapon, but only a -36 if he tries to stab. On the first round of combat ONLY, he adds his Breadth to his initiative roll, giving a +33 no matter which weapon head he uses. This means if Waad wants to Pound, he'll likely be going last in Initiative!Houby is perhaps in more dire straights. He suffers a -74 penalty if he tries to Hack with the blade of his bill, or a -76 if he tries to stab with the pointy end. On the first round of combat ONLY, he adds his barely longer Breadth of +34 to the initiative roll he makes.The game doesn't say what to do if your Initiative Roll ends up below zero. My idea is to allow negative numbers, which would mean we could simplify the initiative rolls. But I kind of like it this way, with massive penalties all around.
>>24483118This is the first time I play F.A.T.A.L. >Read initiativeWhat the fuck?
>>24483118>one hour of math later
>>24483118Houby has a special advantage, however. The duel will be taking place outside his home, as Waad seeks Houby out for an honorable rematch. Houby is caught shooting the bull with his family when Waad kicks in the door and challenges Houby to the duel!"Who be Houby?" says Waad"I'm Sir Laurence Houby, you cur!" replies Houby.The fighters then step outside and take weapons from Houby's outdoor armory which is very conveniently located in a clear open grassy plain.Because Houby's on his own ground, he gets a bonus. This is one thing I think is good about FATAL. This bonus you get for fighting on your own territory.Also I included Called Shots here because there was confusion about how to calculate the penalties for called shots to the groin. If you wanted to stab a dude in the dick, how hard would it be?
How about they rape a bar wench, going in dry, in the ass and up the cunt, and see who can make her bleed more?
Rolled 37>>24483185Should I roll?Rollin' for Houby to Hack.
Rolled 38>>24483185So it is much harder to stab Waad in his pencil-dick? Good to know.Roll for Waad to thrust
Rolled 96>>24483185>>24483231I guess I will roll for waad then. 1d100 roll, right?
>>24483182Haha, it literally was an hour of math.But worry not! I handle the math so you can have the fun. Cool your heels in the rancid acid bath that is FATAL. It's really just simple algebra. >>24483220Blood only seeps out of the vagina if the hymen is broken or if there's a Ripped Orifice problem. Unless the wench has a very tiny vaginal circumference potential, there wouldn't be any bleeding.I calculated it out by the way, and a young human woman with an average vaginal circumference and Hymen Resistance of 47 or less (out of 99) is guaranteed to pop the cherry.>>24483231We're not ready yet, my friends. I'll use your rolls later if it is wished.Right now I'm pulling up Armor so I can explain the game's mechanics to you.
>>24483269Here's the gist of FATAL combat mechanics. It's very similar to Dungeons & Dragons.During each round, all fighters roll an Initiative roll for EACH ATTACK they'll make. Apparently you choose which type of attacks you're doing at the start of the round, although the game does not make this clear.Initiative is resolved from highest score to lowest.To make an attack, you roll *another* d100 to find WHERE you attack will land. That's where Body Part Percentages come in. Basically, bigger parts of your body have a higher chance of being hit. Ever play GURPS with random hit locations? It's like that but with d100.Then you roll 3d10. The crux of FATAL mechanics is rolling 3d10 + modifiers against some Threshold (TH). In combat, Threshold is renamed Current Armor (CA) and it works exactly like D&D Armor Class. You want to EQUAL or EXCEED a target's CA on your 3d10 + modifiers roll to hit them. Last thread I had each fighter do a practice swing on a target so we can get the mechanics down. Let's do that again! Who should swing first, Waad or Houby?
Rolled 59>>24483358Waad, tries to stab Houby on the head with his sword.
WHAT!? some one is actually running a quest thread for this??? dear god slaanesh will take over all if this keeps up
>>24483391Not a Quest thread. A Fechtthread.
>>24483391Nothing Slaaneshi here. Just running combat with FATAL.
>>24483373Great. A practice stab.I assume that was for Initiative? If you wish to roll again for Hit Location, go right ahead!A typical human has a CA of 10. Your Agility score modifies this, so it's very important to have a good Agility score if you plan on getting into combat. This practice target will be just like Houby and Waad, a man wearing clothing. He has a CA of 11.So, I need 3d10 for Waad and possibly another d100 for hit location!I need to go figure out their skill modifiers, too!>>24483391>quest threadNot a quest thread. A fecht thread. They are not the same.

Rolled 69>>24483435Let's see where he gets poked!
Rolled 38>>24483435Wait, let me see if I get this right.Do I have to roll 1d100 for initiative, then another 1d100 to know where I hit, then 3d10 to know if I actually hit it and then roll for damage.>>FuckThisShit.jpg
>>24483414I do not understand what a fechtthread is. please elaborate?
I made an error with Houby's initiative rolls. His initiative modifier for Hacking should be -71, not -61. I knew it was weird the Stabbing was worse than the Hacking.>>24483455A great roll, even before modifiers!>>24483487>69That's the upper torso. Not the groin, surprisingly. I wouldn't put it past author Byron Hall to have made it that way.That's a successful stab to this target's torso! Now we roll for damage. You can see here >>24482337 if you squint real hard and turn your head sideways that both a Bec de Corbin and a Bill do 2d10 damage when stabbing.So roll 2d10 and see how badly you hurt that peasant!Some notes:Any natural roll of 6 or less is a FUMBLE.Any natural roll of 25 or more, that also beats the target's CA by 3 or more, causes GRAPHIC GORE. (That means we roll on the wound table, kiddies!)Any natural roll of 30 is an AUTOMATIC HIT.An average naked human has a CA of 10.An average human has 20 Life Points (LP). They fall unconscious at 4 LP and die at 0 or less.
>>24483526A fechtthread is a battle run using the rules of a system, where /tg/ makes two people kill each other for fun and profit. Usually, it ends in horrible injuries. They were popularized by John Galt and his Riddle of Steel fights. FATALfechtbro is running these to build hype for Song of Swords, the de facto 2nd edition of that game.Also, FATAL is inherently amusing to watch.

>>24483526A fecht thread, or fight thread or duel thread, is a thread where we take an actual /tg/ game system -- usually Riddle of Steel or GURPS, but also that Traveller space combat guy and of course this -- and we run a fight in it. Usually a 1-on-1 match. We like to use historical set-ups in sort of a Deadliest Warrior way, like a Roman Legionary against a Viking, an Italian-school fencer against a French Knight, or a Chinese warrior against a Korean warrior in the 13th century. We're actually playing the game system.A quest thread, by comparison, is usually a collective storytelling experience with very light mechanics. It's a story that is nudged along by die rolls, rather than truly playing a system. Lots of dialogue goes on in quest threads. You don't see much of that in fecht threads.>>24483501Yup, you've hit the nail on the head. That's combat.
>>24483579>>24483582You're lucky Mr. 14 came first!20 LP - 14 damage = 6 LP remainingNow, you'd think the peasant would survive, but thanks to BPP points, his Upper Torso has likely been rendered FOREVER USELESS, and he dies as a result. I'll tell you all about that in a minute, after I get skill modifiers set up.
>>24483269>>24483269You dont know why a girl...getting ready...is important do you?
>>24483629So, humn, is over?Like two hours and half dozen rolls to land one hit and finish the battle already?
>>24483637Those are the rules as presented by FATAL.
>>24483662Nah, that was a practice round.I think.Fucking FATAL.
>>24483629Can't forget the 100% chance of gangrene.
>>24483637>presented with calculations regarding in-universe women from fucking FATAL>immediately jumps from that to real lifeDo you have a problem separating yourself from your characters, then?
>>24483662That was just a practice swing.HOUBY'S TURNROLL d100 FOR HIT LOCATION AND ANNOUNCE ATTACK TYPE (Hacking or Stabbing)THEN ROLL 3d10+13 FOR HOUBY'S GLORIOUS STRIKEHere's the rundown with skills. Each combatant has 5 Skill Points invested in Weapon (Polearm, General Type). This means they don't suffer any penalties for using Polearms. I don't believe they get +5 to their rolls to hit for the SP invested, but the book isn't 100% clear on that. I'm assuming they don't.That means Waad's attacks will be made on 3d10+7, while Houby's will be on 3d10+13!>>24483693Yes! Gangrene! We can't forget that. I keep confusing it with gonorrhea.

>>24483832Damn, that was almost a Gore wound wasn't it?
I'm>>24483832and>>24483582What are the odds?
>>24483832Okay. Time to ignore fewer mechanics, and add more complexity to the damage rolls. We'll also start accounting for Infection, Smiting, and so on.I hope you guys have a basic understanding of the system now. I'm going to turn on every rule and we'll start the fight in a minute.For example, you're not actually doing 3d10+2 damage. You're likely doing more or less as modified by your strength and the fulcrum point you're swinging the weapon from. Waad's damage is modified by the following:[damage] * 1.30 (165 Strength) * 0.42 (fulcrum point), or [damage] * 0.546 Fulcrum point 58 along a range of 5 - 90, with 90 being very near to the blade and 5 near the end of the shaft(100 - 58) / 100= 0.42Houby's damage is worse. His is modified by:[damage] * 1.14 (132 Strength) * 0.14 (fulcrum point), or[damage] * 0.1596As a general rule in FATAL, you USUALLY truncate all fractions from rolled values. So if after modifiers your damage is 14.999, you do only 14 damage. The decimals and fractions are dropped.>>24483862That's only on the to hit roll, not the damage roll. But if it were a to hit roll, yes, it would almost be Graphic Gore!
>>24483952Also derp I totally forgot the to hit roll in that last strike.WaadPounding (2d12 +1) * 0.546minimum damage 1maximum damage 13Stabbing(2d10) * 0.546minimum damage 1maximum damage 10Houby (3d10+2) * 0.1596minimum damage 0maximum damage 5(2d10) * 0.1596minimum damage 0maximum damage 3Waad has a HUGE advantage here in damage potential. It's all thanks to Houby being too weak to use a bill at a good fulcrum point.The warriors will start 10 paces away from each other.
/tg/, are you ready?I said, ARE YOU READY?LET'S GET READY FOR FATAAAAL!
Rolled 66>>24484100Houby goes for the stab
>>24484063>The warriors will start 10 paces away from each other>inb4 3 hours of math to see if they can clear that distance
>>24484212Not like I was going to sleep tonight anyway...
>>24484063Does FATAL have a sort of defensive action?
First things first! The judge of this fight is an awkward 17-year-old girl. She will gift a random magical item to the victor!The challenger, Helmin Waad, was defeated by Laurence Houby on the outskirts of the village of Goldenwurst. Waad shamed his duchess and is on a geas of repentance. He came to Houby's own home to challenge him to an honor duel. It's probably to the death whether we want it to be or not. Can Waad redeem himself and honorably take up the mantle of knight once more?Laurence Houby successfully claimed Goldenwurst for his mistress by trial of arms. He was at home enjoying the company of his family when Waad arrived. Can he defend his honor and his life in front of all he holds dear?It's time for the initial Initiative rolls. The combatants are close enough to walk to each other, so there's no need to worry about distance.Waad rolls 1d100 - 102 + 33 if trying to Pound, or 1d100 - 49 + 33 if trying to stab.Houby rolls 1d100 - 84 + 34 + 5 if trying to Hack, or 1d100 - 76 + 33 + 5 if trying to stab.Houby's +5 comes from his Home Advantage.Get rolling!Pick your favorite man and lead him to victory!
Rolled 9>>24484246I roll for Houby Squarecock!
Rolled 53>>24484246Waad foolishly wants to pound
>>24484173That's for Houby!66 -76 +33 +5 = 28Let's see a roll for Waad!>>24484262Normally I'd take the first roll here, but the initiative roll above was fair. Roll again for Waad! And for Heaven's sake man, roll better this time.>>24484275Nevermind, someone beat you to it.53 - 102 + 33 = -16 less than 28!Houby gets his attack in first!>>24484212HahaYeah.Nah.
>>24483872>>24484262Still the same guy here. I can't get a normal roll to save my life here.
Rolled 24>>24484286I guess this for for where the blow hits?
Roll a d100 to see where Houby's stab lands, and then 3d10+13 to see if you hit at all!Remember, a NATURAL roll of 6 or less is a Fumble, or critical failure.A NATURAL 25 or higher causes Graphic Gore if it also beats the opponent's CA by 3 or more. (Which it will in this fight.)A NATURAL 30 is a hit.>>24484301I know that feel, bro. Think of it as a gift. The trick is to turn that gift to your advantage.
>>24484317>>24484322A 28 looks like it hits the Upper Right Leg.Make your to hit roll now, Houby!
Rolled 3, 10, 2 + 13 = 28>>24484347
>>24484361A natural 15. An easy hit.For reference, although it's very unlikely to come up in this fight, if you fail your attack roll because of an opponent's armor boosting his CA, you hit his armor and damage it. For that to happen, one of you would need to roll a total of around 11. I need to check the specific number.Okay, roll 2d10 * 0.1596 for stabbing damage, Houby. Realize you'll do between 0 and 3 damage. FATAL has no clause for minimum damage because you hit a guy, believe it or not.
>>24484322>I know that feel, broSeriously, what did you sacrifice to botch an 11 dice roll?
>>24484407I didn't BOTCH anything, you need two 1s to make a botch. I only got one 1.
Rolled 4, 1 = 5>>24484404So I can stab him in the leg and still do zero damage?Ok.
>>24484430Not a real fecht thread until Ogre Battle shows up.>>24484435You can and probably did.
>>24484435Yup. And that's precisely what just happened.5 * 0.1596 (see >>24483952 for explanation)= 0.798. We truncate fractions, so Houby did 0 damage. A grazing wound! The fighters really ought to swap weapons. Waad! You're up! Get rolling! d100 for location, 3d10+7 for hitting. Remember that you're trying to Pound!>>24484243No, there is no sort of Defensive action in FATAL at all. I'm serious. No defensive stance, nothing. All you can do is get your CA as high as possible.

A 100 hits the Head. Let me explain this before we go further.There are two trackers for hit points in FATAL. First is Life Points. That's your general all-round healthiness. Second are Body Part Points.When you deal damage to a person, you deal damage in 2 ways. The amount of damage you roll is subtracted from the other guy's Life Points. It's his hit points basically.But you also subtract an equal number of Body Part Points from the part you hit. You get BPP for each individual body part by running a calculation. An average human has 20 Life Points, but his Upper Torso only has (20 LP * 3 * 0.29 proportion of upper torso to the rest of the body) = 17 Body Part Points.When a body part's BPP is reduced to zero, that part is rendered FOREVER USELESS. (Book's own words.) Drop a guy's groin to zero? No more children for him. Drop a guy's arm to zero? No more arm. Drop their Upper Torso, Lower Torso, or Head/Face to zero? They're in the dead book now.If you dealt only 17 damage, the man would lose his Upper Torso and be slain. The same happens if you destroy a person's Lower Torso or Head/Face.If you dealt MORE than enough damage to destroy a part, it is severed.There's one exception. The Head and the Face SHARE a Body Part Point pool. This means Houby's total BPP for his Head/Face is 2.20 * 0.2 = 120 * 0.6 = 11+1 = 2If Waad does even two points of damage to Houby, Houby is dead.Roll for damage.

>>24484608Roll 3d10. No modifiers because neither warrior has any applicable skills. (There ARE skills that help out your Graphic Gore rolls, but seeing how rare Graphic Gore is in the first place it's more of a trap option than Toughness in D&D 3.5 is.)This chart is a good example of FATAL. Notice how there's no difference whether the weapon hits the right or left side of the head.

>>24484663you cheeky little fuck
Houby Jr. must avenge his father one day.Luckily (hopefully) Houby Jr. has been studying magic.
>>24484691Houby Jr. will corner an unarmed Waad in an alley and make him fart.
>>24484699Or make him roll on the random magical effects chart.
>>24484646The referee girl barely lifted up her hand and stepped back before the combatants were at it. Their steely gazes turned into squints of focused rage as they set upon each other. Waad brought back his bec de corbin, preparing for a strong hammer swing. Houby was faster -- a sense of deja vu nibbled at his mind -- and he ran forward with his bill held high up on the shaft. Although he drove the spike towards his opponent's midsection, the weapon ended up merely grazing Waad's right thigh. Houby fell slightly with his heavy weapon, ending up bent over where his foe's leg had been before he twisted out of the way. The last thought through Houby's mind was a sense that history was meant to repeat itself. Hot on the heels of that thought was Waad's hammer. A gasp erupted from the crowd. The sound of shattered bone and the short spray of precious lifeblood, scarce seconds after combat had begun, was a sudden shock to Houby's family. As Waad stepped back from his foe, he could already hear a woman crying. The referee girl's hands covered her face, but her eyes were transfixed on the corpse of Sir Laurence Houby.Waad bowed his head in respect of a fallen rival, then slowly walked away. It took all his willpower not to look back upon the devastated family behind him. Their screams would echo in his ears long after he retreated into the woods to pray for guidance.
Pencildick is truly the hero we deserve.
>>24484787I forgot to add +2 to Houby's to hit roll for Home Advantage. Thankfully it would not have mattered.As the victor of this combat, Helmin Waad has been gifted a random magical item! Roll 1d1000 to see what it is.Note that the chart at the bottom is listed for 3d10 but says to roll 1d1000. We'll roll 3d10 for that one.
Rolled 153>>24484855Here's hoping for a siege engine
>>24484894>>24484895>Alchemical Elixer>Alchemical SalveHeck, we'll see what both of those were, but we'll go with the Elixer.Waad naturally gulps the elixer down as soon as it is awarded to him.Roll 1d100 for the Elixer and 1d100 for the Salve.
Rolled 91, 15 = 106>>24484937
Rolled 28>>24484937rub it all over mah pencil dick
Rolled 65And Salve.
>>24484963Enjoy your new random disease.>>24484967And your new random poison.>>24484956>>24484960Also I hope you enjoy having the best sleep of your life after you murdered a man in front of his family you disgusting monster.Let's do all of the above.Roll 1d10 for how many hours Waad slept.Roll 1d10 for how many years he doesn't age.I'll go get the poisons and diseases.
>>24484956It's important to get a good sleep after killing a man in front of his family.
Randomly choose one poison and one disease.There are 30 poisons, so rolling 1d30 would be fine.I'm going to go steal my cat's bodily wastes and be back in a few minutes.
>>24484989After a long day of shitting on babies and ripping asunder sphincters, I find that a fair, old-fashioned murder is just the thing to lull a fellow off to sleep. It's like having the radio on just low enough to be white noise but not loud enough to register in your brain.
Rolled 9>>24485036Sounds comfy as fuck Also, poison dick here I come
Rolled 28I sure do loves me some Realistic RPG poison!
>>24485061Is that 9 on a 1d100 for disease or for the 1d10 for YEARS HE DOESN'T AGE?
>>24485086based of the email, it is a 1d30 for poison.
>>24485086I think the 7 was for years aged, 9 was for poison and 28 was for disease?
>>24485113er, years not aged that is
Rolled 80>>24485113throw out the 28 it was a second poisonthis is for disease
>>24485086He rolled a 1d30 you dork.Poison - 9 - DaphneDisease - 80 - InfluenzaHey, are you guys familiar with FATAL's Bad Trip rules? There's rules for getting intoxicated on alcohol and marijuana (which by itself isn't rare in RPGs) and having a Bad Trip (which is).Roll d10 to see if Waad's influenza is normal. If you get a 1-9, it is, and you must roll a 1d4 to see how long the symptoms last. Otherwise roll 3d10 to see how long the symptoms last.Welcome to non-combat FATAL.
>>24485183>Plants>zootoxins>Animals>phytotoxinsI found a typo!
Rolled 80>>24485183Bad trip, here we come.
Rolled 8>>24485238Goddamn, it is definitely time for me to sleep. Let's try that again.
>>24485249Nice 10% reduction there. Impressive.Roll 1d4 to see how many days the flu lasted.
>>24485268Cool.Now then, I understand you guys wanted to see some magic?
>>24485324Shit man, it's 4 AM and you're making me choose between sleep and fecht?
>>24485324>To determine whether or not the bad effects occur, each time mushrooms are used, the number of caps and stems that were ingested must be considered. Consider one Trip Point (TP) to equal 1 stem, one while cap equals 3 TP. Now, sum the TPs and make a Health sub-ability check. If the result rolled is equal to or less than the number of TPs, then a bad trip occurs.>Permanently lose bodily attractiveness and HP.It's nice to know that, despite all of Byron's Halls incredibly grotesque misogyny, fetishes, compulsive lying and downright imbecilic ideas about what was 'fun,' at least the dude listened to his mother when she said drugs were bad for you.And yeah, I'm with the other guy. It's been fun but best to leave the magic for another day, good anon.
>>24485367Nope. I in fact was going to say that we will continue this tomorrow. Rather, we'll do Fecht #3! Just keep this thread alive.But there's BETTER NEWS!John Galt is scheduled to do a fecht thread tomorrow! Saturday! Get hype. Get really freaking hype. John Galt will be running a Riddle of Steel / Song of Swords fecht thread again! His last one was absolutely superb. >>24484285 This thread will provide your heads-up for it.I'm running FATAL Fecht not just to show you guys how FATAL really is, but to get you excited for Song of Swords. A fa/tg/uy sequel to Riddle of Steel can't go wrong! We'll continue later. Good night /tg/.
You're awesome, anon.May your dreams be filled with things as far from the FATAL rules as possible.
>>24485576Thank you for your kind words, anon! I am glad other people are having a good time because of me.
http://www.kallini.com/SPG.pdfSomeone should do a sword path glory fetch gameWhat is sword path glory?Remember phoenix command? The ultra complex game?The company first made sword path glory (fantasy game) it was super complexthen they decided to make less complex games to get a audience for sword path glory:first rhand (scifi) less complex than sword path glorythen they changed to spectrum small arms (nowadays and some future stuff) that was less complexthen phoenix command that was even less complex
>>24487910ps they first did a red book version of sword path gloryand then made another version that was a little less complex (less tables) that is called the white version, they then made 2 books to it (roleplaying one and advanced rules [problably with rules for weapons that need specific rules])
Bump. Waking up soon. >more complex than Phoenix commandOh no.
>>24489044Well, this is definitely the shortest combat round unit I've ever encountered. A twelfth of a second.
>>24490631If you think about it, that means in the spam of a minute, 2 fighters would throw:12 attacks per second × 60 seconds = 720 actions/attacks.Fuck you, Flash!
>>24490944>12 attacks per secondYou silly monkey. You didn't read the rest of the image.>Each may strike a blow and parry on impulse 1. Thereafter the combatants may strike a blow every WBI impulses.
I guess people really loved these ugly unreadable graphs back in the '80s. I'm not dealing with this. FATAL is better.
>>24491174>FATAL is betterSeeing this said anywhere feels incredibly wrong and terrifying.
In the woods, Helmin Waad kneels and prays."Great Masters, I have slain a worthy foe today. I have achieved my revenge. But why do I feel so hollow? I have left behind a grieving mother. And a maiden waiting to be married!"Great Masters, what should I do?"
>>24492345You know what to do.
>>24492406I wanted to do that for a long time. It was incredibly lame.Anyway, I'll do a Magic battle sometime later. Perhaps next weekend -- unless people really want it tonight.
>>24489044Its not too hard, you just need to check the book alot and make alot of changes.some stuff from the bookyour ability to move stuff= based on strenght with sizereal strenght =based on ability to move stuff with weight of the stuff you havenormal walk speed = based on hability of moving stuff with weight you havemax speed= based on normal walk speed with speed modifieraceleration =based on max speed with dexteryhow long you can susten pain and will stop fighitng= will power + fighting skillwhen somone give some damage to you, you will do a check to see if you will stop fighting from pain and the answer is yes, if you will also dies.if he dont die, the last damages increase the chance of him dying the last time he takes damage, or something like thatPS: he says on the next book (released but not here on the tghreads) there are more complex rules to itthis is basically what this book is (forgot to post about how weapon works, would do if I undertood it)its not as hard, the problem is that you need to change alot of stuff alot of times, as some example when you decrease your weight, because alot of things
>>24490631man I would love to see other books.PS: the guy that did this book actually works with rocket science for nasa. He stopped to do the books because he said rocket science was easier, he got more money with a easier job.He could do like that.Think about some sword path glory book and do a gibstarter with some amount of money that would make him want work on the game.If he get the money he do the book if not he dont.Then after he do it, he do the same with the second book..... and third, stopping when some book dont reach the goal
So, approximately, around what hour this fetch is going to happen? Well, more like how many hours from now?
>>24487910someone could do a program to calculate the stuff on this game. I would try if the game didnt had those tables with all those data I would need to copy
>>24493591Do you mean John Galt's fecht or my magic fecht?
