Re: AFF Manuevers?

Dupont: I cleaned up the opposed rolling resolution mechanic and made it closer to DCC's Deed die. Basically, when rolling for damage, the player tries to roll under the number of points invested in the related Special Skill using the damage die. The percentages work, it rewards special skill invest...

Re: AFF Manuevers?

I would avoid backfires since I want to encourage them to try stuff. The issue with how some systems implement manuevers is that players often prefer to just do damage since it kills the target faster. This allows them to do both at the same time. Like I said, I haven't played AFF yet but in other g...

One thing I really liked about DCC was the Warrior's Mighty Deeds. They would let a Warrior attempt so...
