Cheat Sheet

Post by Hellbrandt » Tue Sep 18, 2018 9:10 pm

Does anyone know of or have a cheat sheet or rules summary to give to players - core rules, combat, magic - on a couple of sheets? I've searched this forum but can't find anything like that.

Thanks

It would be epic if someone made one
He just sits there tapping away all day on a tiny screen. But he tells everyone that he is slaying Orcs.

Someone has made one because I have a copy on my computer. When I get to it, I can post it, unless we find the original post and pin it.

The tables, made by Darksoul, are here:

A rules summary is on pages 96-103 of this document:

I have put together my own cheat sheet if anyone is interested. It's 3 pages, one core rules, one combat, one magic. I use the roll high optional rules, so everything is roll 14 or higher, if you want standard rules it's easy to copy the document and make your changes.

PDF:

Google Docs:

It's a read only link, if you want to customise it, make a copy to your own google docs account and edit there.

i use a roll of 15 as that way someone with 7 skill and 1 special skill or 6 skill and 2 special skill are more likely to pass than fail.

After reading this thread viewtopic.php?f=13&t=745&p=4516&hilit=o ... rule#p4482 I decided to go with a target of 14 - as the link says statistically it's the same as the default rolling under rules. If you setting a target of 15 you are making every unopposed skill test more difficult than the default rules.

I can see that you included some house rules and that's fine, but in the Encumbrance section I'd add a note about the benefits of Packhorse Talent.
He's a real Nowhere man, sitting in his Nowhere land, making all his Nowhere plans for Nobody.

I was just sticking to the core rules for now. You can grab a copy of the Google Docs version and add the Packhorse and change the unopposed skill and luck check rules back to default.
