Re: The Mists of Moorshire - Adventure site Village and Castle

Why it is down?

I was hoping to print it and read it for the session I have this weekend.  :(

Re: How do you kill an Enemy?

Going to play THE HOLLOWS this weekend, for my family. One last time, please. Regarding the rolls. You, as a Character, are ALWAYS rolling ATTRIBUTE + SKILL + WEAPON + GEAR when you are trying to do something or when you are attacking. You NEVER roll only SKILL + WEAPON or only SKILL. You are always...

Re: How do you kill an Enemy?

But in the book it says you roll for Melee + Weapons Gear when you make an attack. It says nothing about adding Attribute dice too.

So attacking an enemy in melee or ranged is a skill roll?

Re: How do you kill an Enemy?

Thanks a lot, Fenhorn! Yes, I was getting it wrong. Regarding MELEE and RANGED Combat. When you attack someone with a bow, you roll for MARKMANSHIP + Weapon's Gear Bonus Die. When you attack someone with a long sword, you roll for MELEE + Weapon's Gear Bonus Die. So it is truth that you never roll a...

Re: How do you kill an Enemy?

The more I think about the combat in Forbidden Lands the more I like it. It is quite genius, really. Anyway, what is the role / purpose of the skull dice when a Monster / Enemy is rolling to attack? If a Monster rolls 2 sixes and 2 ones (skulls), the attack is already successful. The ones (skulls) m...

Re: How do you kill an Enemy?

Thanks a lot Mr Oldtimer! I take it, as a rule of thumb, that any monster who is not in the Bestiary uses their STRENGTH Attribute + MELEE skill (if they have it) when attacking? If a Wolf is going to attack the character player he will use STRENGTH 4 (so 4 dice) + MELEE 3 (so 3 dices) to Bite. If t...

Re: How do you kill an Enemy?

Thank you all!  :) Now that I understand how the character player attacks and kills an Enemy, I suddenly realize that I have little idea how to act the Enemy. Let's take an example, please. An Ogre. Strength 6, Agility 2, Wits 1, Empathy 2 Skills: Might 4, Endurance 2, Melee 2 Gear: Large wooden clu...

Picking a Location and a Legend

Hello All, I need a bit of help. So I am preparing my first game as a DM, for my family (son and wife) and I don't want our first session to be centered around the Hollows adventure. It seems too daunting for me. I don't have that much experience and I am not sure I can tackle that one yet. It is qu...

Re: How do you kill an Enemy?

It is too much because the combat is already *kinda* tedious. I don't need Willpower and Empathy to see if my players kill an enemy or not. Honestly, that's just an overkill. I need the combat to be 1) very deadly and 2) very quick.

Re: How do you kill an Enemy?

Thanks again!

Yes, I don't think I want the players to use Willpower or fail on Empathy to kill an Enemy. It is way too much.

In my games, if an Enemy is broken (it has zero Strength points left) it is automatically killed. No argument.
