We follow the Gaming 10 Commandments. (Thanks Skyland Games!)
We are using the fast spell casting rules that appears in the Rifts Ultimate Edition.
Spell invocation levels 1-5 use up one (1) melee attack/action.
Spell invocation levels 6-10 use up two (2) melee attacks/actions.
Spell invocation levels 11-15 AND Spells of Legend use a minimum of three (3) melee attacks/actions.
Scroll conversion, scroll reading, and spell book rules are here.
Adjustment in learning spells: Take 1 hour off/level of time to learn spell for the spell casters level learning, and 1 hour off/level for teachers level.
Speed is equal to the number of yards you can run in 1 minute.
Each coin weighs 1/4 ounce, other than Old Kingdom coins, which weigh 1/2 ounce. Old Kingdom Dragon coins weigh 1 oz each.
Someone with 1 weapon may parry 3 attacks. Someone using paired weapons may parry 4 attacks. If attempting to parry more than that, the character loses an attack as a dodge.
Any death where the player is not resurrected will result in a new character being created for that player at 2 levels below level at death, or 10th level, whichever is lower. Each death lowers the chance of future resurrections by 10%, example 2 deaths= – 20%.
Steps if Character is close to Death- First- Anyone that gets below 0 hp save vs coma. Then, after your PE in minutes, another save. Then, unless under medical care, save vs death, or if you fail on 2 save vs coma in a row. Then, if you aren’t helped by PE in hours from original time by some medical care, save vs. death, and once/hour thereafter.
Second- If the damage is more than your PE below 0 (example, PE of 13, damage of -15) you must immediately save vs. death. If succeed, then save vs coma, and repeat as above in #1.
Remember: This is a role-playing GAME! So, to continue to encourage laughter, I will continue to award xp when you make the gm laugh. Extra xp when you make all of us laugh!
New members to CrIsis require unanimous approval of current group members, after three sessions to get a sample of how they roleplay.
We are using the perception rules from Dead Reign, from Palladium Books, with bonuses coming from ME.
Easy: 4 Moderate: 8 Challenging: 14 Difficult: 17 Masterful: 19
Perception & Skills: Skills such as Prowl, Concealment, etc add to Perception. + 1 every 10 points of skill. Use common sense… prowl does not help in discovering a secret door.
We are using the movement rules given in the Old Ones Sourcebook, pages 22-24.
On character’s birthday, all 20 sided rolls are + 4, all skills are + 20%.
On personal birthdays, all 20 sided rolls are + 2, all skills are + 10%.
Each anniversary the character, with the blessing of his/her god or goddess, will get to re-roll any and all dice rolls once each for that day! You must accept the result of the re-roll.
High, Mid, Low, and Standard Roll Rules
To stay on the honor system, use our own dice rather than a computer program, we use a high, mid, & low roll rule. This is sent by gm to another player than the one rolling over private message. No message means standard rolls.
High- 100 is 1, 1 is 99. 20 is 20, 1 is 1.
Mid- 50 is 1, 49 is 100. 10 is 20, 9 is 1.
Low- 1 is 1, 100 is 100. 1 is 20, 20 is 1.
Standard- Number rolled is number given.
None of this applies if using the computer dice roller.
A roll of 1-4 is always a miss, regardless
Holy and Magic Weapons
Holy Weapons are nearly indestructible and never dull. They can only be destroyed or damaged by a God, Greater Demon, Dragon, or minion of the Gods, or an attack by a Rune Weapon. To do so, the attack must deliberately be targeted at the weapon. The weapon is still S.D.C, however.
Magic weapons also never dull, but may be destroyed.
Natural 1 on a 20 is a fumble- go immediately to fumble tables. If fumble table says possibility of striking someone, roll new strike roll 1-4 misses automatically, as in all rolls. There are no double fumbles (1 followed by 1 for strike on fumble table means miss)
Players can ignore horror factor if they have faced the creature/race 4 times successfully in combat.
At the end of each session an MVP will be picked by the player characters. That PC will get a bonus 250 xp, and an attendance point.
