Alternate Victory Points system v1

Alternate Victory Points system v1

(Under Construction)

Skill Level define the number of dice you role.

Characteristic is the base value added to the dice.

You have your Standard set of Ability Scores which FS calls Characteristics ( a value of 1 – 10). That’s your base value. Your skill level is the number of d20 dice you are going to roll to a maximum of 5.  For every Skill Level above 5, the player may make a re-roll once.

The dice explode on a ’20’ but only if the player spends a Wyrd for each die he wish to explode.

In the end you have a die value you total, either from the highest total. That value is added to the base to get a final value.

The difference between the difficulty and the total would be used to get your victory points, either through a one to one conversion or a table (so we can still call it a victory point system).

Wyrd points can also be spent to get more dice.
