Combat System

The combat revolves around a 2d6 roll, influenced by each party member’s combat modifier, the enemy’s strength, and is further modified by the ‘Edge’ rule in specific scenarios. For an example of combat take a look at the Sample Combat Play-by-Play

Step 1: Calculate Party Impact

Step 2: Calculate the Modifier

Step 3: Edge Factor

Step 4: Time to Tussle

Step 5: Continuing Combat or Retreating

Step 6: Loot Collection

If an encounter provides a Loot number, then the party can get some loot.

Special Rule: Strip It Bare

Nothing goes to waste in the wastes, or so the saying goes. Resourceful adventurers can get some value out of anything.

Players may group these rolls as they wish. For example, if the party has 4 Loot Dice, the player may roll each individually, combine two dice into one roll twice, or even use all four for a chance at obtaining superior loot!
