Combatant: Character Name here Attack, Defense, or Saving Action: Dice Result: d(1-20) Attack or Defense Result: Melee Dice Rules Attack or Defense Action must be validated by a dice throw. For our purposes we will be using a d20 or a 20 sided dice. The higher the die score the more effective your action. The rule of thumb for the die is as follows: 1-5 = Action ineffectual. A miss or near miss or a failure or near failure to defend. 6-10 = Minimal Action. Action is mildly effective. A partial hit or partial block. 11-17 = Intermediate Action. Action is Moderately effective. In Attack: A solid hit, but opponent is not stunned. The Opponent must take a turn to complete a ?Saving Throw?. This takes up the opponent?s Defense Turn. The dice will determine if the person is stunned or not in a Saving Throw using the following as a guide. 1-5 = Stunned Unconscious 6-10 = Stunned but only knocked off guard. Looses 1 Defensive Turn. 11-15 = Minor injury. A small cut. 16-20 = Attack fails. Attack is blocked or parried. 18 -20 = Kill Strike. Action is completely effective. Opponent looses Defensive turn and is knocked out. The Attacker wins round. Using Dice 1. Go to this web-site: [link=http://hamete.org/dserver/dice]Hamete Virtual Dice[/link] 2.
