But first, a warning. So I've been working on this for awhile now. And originally I was never intending for this to really be shown. But I then thought, oh what the hell. You guys can look and pick it all apart for what you like or don't like. But on that note I must apologize. The way I have written all of this has been for my purposes only, so some of the wording will probably only make sense to me or the formatting will be terrible. Please feel free to point out anything that's confusing.

Redoing Core Basic Rules

Redoing Core is basically exactly what the title says, my attempt to redo the core rules of D&D to a game that I would like to play. One that offers a good deal of customizability while still allowing for a standard player to be able to pick up with relative ease.

The system that I most drew inspiration from for this rewrite was Star Wars Saga Edition, though D&D 3.5, 4, and Fantasy Craft also gave me a few ideas. Unless stated otherwise itís generally a safe bet that unless otherwise stated the rules of Saga Edition are in place. For those of you who do not know Saga Edition Iíll write out the important rules changes that I carried over to my rewrite.

Passive Defenses, Will, Fortitude, and Reflex saves have been replaced by Will, Fortitude, and Reflex Defense. This defense is calculated by 10 + your level + your ability modifier. Will Defense uses Wisdom, Fortitude uses Constitution, and Reflex Defense uses Dexterity.

There purposes are largely the same, except, Armor Class has been combined with Reflex Save into Reflex Defense, making Reflex the most used and arguably the most important defense.

And Fortitude Defense serves as a base for a new defense called Damage Threshold. Whenever your character is dealt damage, that damage is compared to your characters Damage Threshold. If the damage surpasses your Damage Threshold then your character moves one step down the Condition Track.

The Condition Track determines how the damage your character has taken effects them. The Condition Track has the following levels:

Level 0: You are effectively unharmed. No damage has surpassed your Damage Threshold.
Level -1: One step down the Condition Track, you take a -1 penalty to all d20 checks and all Defenses
Level -2: Two steps down the Condition Track, you take a -2 penalty to all d20 checks and all Defenses
Level -3: Three steps down the Condition Track, you take a -5 penalty to all d20 checks and all Defenses
Level -4: Four steps down the Condition Track, you take a -10 penalty to all d20 checks and all Defenses. In addition you move at half speed.
Level -5: You are unconscious or otherwise unable to perform any action, depending on the situation.

To move up the Condition Track your character must take 3 swift actions either all on one round or on consecutive rounds.

Which brings us to the next big change; Actions. This system uses roughly the same as the D&D set up, except the swift action is made more integral to the system. On a round your character can either make a single full-round action, or a standard action, move action, and swift action. Of these last three actions you can choose to instead of taking one action choose to take a lower action. So a standard action can be replaced with either a move or a swift action, a move action can be replaced with a swift action, but a swift action cannot replace anything.

Full-attack: There is no basic full-attack action in the game. It exists, but it must be obtained through feats or other abilities.

Classes: Redoing Core has very few but very broad classes. Currently, only four: Warrior, Scholar, Rogue, and Courtier. However the system encourages multiclassing. There are no penalties for doing so, however you do not get all the starting proficiency feats for multiclasses as you did in D&D 3.5. Instead you can gain the benefit of one starting feat or gain proficiency in one skill. In addition, at first level you gain 3x maximum of your classes hit die in hit points. If you multiclass you do not get 3x maximum of your second classes hit die in hit points, but instead act as though you were simply taking an additional level in the second class.

A class is essentially a list of possible feats and talent trees that the player can choose from. For some players it may seem more fun to ignore the talent and feat requirements. This is fine, I know Saga Edition has been turned into a completely classless system by Mark Hall (http://rpgcrank.blogspot.com/2013/07/classless-saga-and-other-alterations.html) And the same can be done here, pretty easily. Talent trees are more for helping create a concept, if someone wants to play a raging barbarian the Berserker Talent Tree is right there laid out for them.

Skills: Skill Points have been removed and replaced with a feat based skill system. This will be explained later.


Some differences between this system and Saga.
Skills: The math behind skills has been rewritten to make them less overpowered at low levels and in line with attack rolls at higher levels. This will be explained further in the skills section. I have also gotten rid of the Class Skill system, as of now any class can pick any skill with the exception of Thaumaturgy (the replacement for Use the Force) which requires the additional feat, Magical Aptitude, to gain.

Magic is a bit different than the Force. Spells can only be learned one at a time and use a spell slot upon their use. But any spell you know can be used as many times per encounter as you would like. The amount of spell slots a character has depends on if theyíre an arcane or a divine caster and will be explained further in the Magic section. I am also implementing a ritual system, which are for spells that really do not make sense to be used in combat situations.

Attack types. Things like disarming, tripping, grabbing, and so on have been replaced with the Maneuver System. The reason for this is simple, I have never seen anyone, ever, make a bull rush, or disarm check and eat the attack of opportunity. They only use the ability after they have the feat for it. So I just made the abilities use tied to the feat that improves it. This will be explained further in the maneuver section.

Prestige Classes. Saga had this very odd system in place where essentially the second half every class was in a prestige class that required you to limit the amount of choices available for you in order to get into them. Itís all well and good to have so many talent trees, but if you have to have at least 2 of your first 4 talents be from a specific tree the customizability of the game is needlessly limited. So instead, Advanced Talent Trees are now part of the base classes and prestige classes are reserved for concepts that are not really supported just by the base classes.

Classes

So far in Redoing Core there are four classes. The Warrior, the Scholar, the Courtier, and the Rogue. Hopefully the names of each of the classes make the concept of what the class is supposed to do pretty obvious.

Here are the four.

WARRIOR
Hit points at level 1= 30 + Con mod
Hit points every level beyond the first character level= 1d10 + Con modifier
Trained Skills= 4 + Int modifier
Action Points= 5 + Ĺ character level any left over each level do not carry over

Martial Maneuvers
Maneuvers are my answer to giving mundane characters interesting and fun things to do. While I have stolen the terminology from Tome of Battle, they are actually pretty similar to Fantasy Craft's attack tricks, and hopefully will allow the warriors to do many amazing things that keep them on equal footing to casters.

Maneuvers are gained through the Martial Training Feat, so long as you meet the prerequisites of the individual maneuver being learned. Every attack roll you make can apply a single maneuver to it, unless otherwise stated.

Stances are a subset of maneuvers that provide a passive bonus, you can only be in one stance at a time. To enter or switch stances costs the use of a swift action.

MAGIC
My goal in magic is to drastically reduce the power of spells when compared to D&D 3.5, while still allowing the casters to do fantastic and interesting things. My goal is to also do away with the generalist wizard that can just cherry pick the best spells and has a spell that works perfectly for every situation. To accomplish this I have drastically decreased the amount of spells a focused spellcaster can have. Since spells are feats, and you gain a feat every level the maximum amount a spellcaster can have is 20 (21 if human) spells. Which is quite a lot, but they are fighting for space with metamagic feats, or any other that the mage might find interesting. And of those spells you can't just pick the most powerful, you have to work up the various school in a prerequisite style stolen from Tome of Battle. You have to have the earlier spells mastered to learn the later spells.

The rules to spells and spellcasting:
Spells are gained through the Learn Spell feat, so long as you meet the prerequisites of the individual spell being learned.

Each spell is either normal or a ritual.

A Normal spell requires one Spell Slot to use, unless the spell in question has an at-will application.

An At-Will application of a spell is generally weaker than a normal use of the spell and does not require a Spell Slot to use.

Rituals are generally more powerful spells that don't make sense to be used in combat. They take longer and most of the move powerful rituals all have some cost to use, usually an Action Point.

The Current Magic Schools
Necromancy: Contains spells about manipulating the energies of death to serve your ill
Life: The school for healers and aiding others
Conjuration: The spells in this school are focused on movement or teleportation; including creatures to do your will.
Elemental: Contains spells that harness the elements to do your bidding, generally the most damage focused school
Enchantment: This school is about spells that enhance or manipulate the target, such as making items stronger or even controlling the minds of lesser men
Divination: This school is about the senses, and using magic to see things more clearly, including the future, if strong enough.
Illusion: This school is about manipulating the senses of others to confuse or mask your own actions.
Transmutation: The Transmutation school is about physically altering things

Races

So far the races I have are; human, dwarf, elf, orc, halfling, and goblin. I decided to get rid of the half-races and gnomes. I understand the purpose of half-orcs, they allow the player to play a monstrous race while still letting orcs be an always evil race. But since the alignment system has gone the way of the dodo this serves no actual purpose. Gnomes have always had a sort of odd spot in roleplaying games, since I don't think anyone knows what to really do with them. They're halflings, but funnier, and seemed to crib notes from both elves and dwarves. Ultimately I simply felt they didn't serve any purpose. To bring in another small race I decided on goblins, it throws another monstrous race into the mix and my ideas for them work well when paired with the orcs. As to half-elves, I figure if I ever do the half-races they'll just create templates.

So the races, stats first.

Races

Low-light vision: You ignore the penalties of concealment (but not total concealment) from darkness.

Dwarves
One of the oldest and most secretive of races. Stories of the dwarves interfering in the affairs of outsiders are few, but ancient. The children of stone claim to be as ancient as the elves if not older. More than that is rare to hear from a dwarf. As a people they are shorter and stockier than humans and elves, with complexions that vary from a dark tan to mud brown. Their most famous feature is their beards; a dwarf's beard is a sign of their status and purpose within the dwarven community. Losing their beard is akin to abandoning dwarven culture and religion.

The dwarves come from the mountains of the east, a once hostile place that the dwarves have shaped through shear force of will. The landscape of the mountains has been modified in ways that astound onlookers. It is said by those few who make their way through the dwarven lands that they have made entire mountains into their fortresses. Whole villages have been shaped from the stone, and the extension of the underground mines can only be guessed at.

Much like the mountains they have made their home, the dwarven community is one of rigid structure. Once a dwarf is old enough to stand he is judged by the priests and sent to various mess halls where they will learn the trade they will complete for the rest of their lives. [not finished]

Darkvision: You ignore penalties of concealment (including total concealment) from darkness.
Xenophobia: You gain a +2 species bonus to Will Def against Persuasion checks made to improve your attitude by any creature of a different species.

Halflings
A small and curious people, halflings were so named by the elves who found their small size amusing. Amongst themselves they refer to their species as the kyp. Halflings are often considered something of a joke amongst the large folk. They have never held an empire, or even attempted to expand their influence in written history. Their soldiers are not feared, and their political leaders are barely respected. Yet, every attempt to conquer the halflings has either failed or been forced out after less than two years of occupation. Elves, humans, goblins, and orcs have all tried and yet none have succeeded. The closest was the ancient elven empire which allowed the halflings to exist autonomously so long as they paid the required taxes.

As a culture the halflings appear to be almost annoyingly friendly. Good natured and disdainful of violence or upsetting their pleasant way of life. Those that do cause a ruckus are generally viewed as a bit odd by other halflings, but few would ever be so rude as to mention that oddness in public. The halfling in question would find themselves politely, almost imperceptibly, pushed out of most social circles. It is, however, these few adventurous halflings that seem to have the largest role in keeping the halfling society running. Theyíre the ones who bring in foreign wealth, who come home and end up running the communities as most of their neighbors are too polite to disagree. Outsiders unfamiliar with how halfling community works are puzzled and often amused by the situation. It appears that halflings are almost two separate people, the friendly and kind which would like nothing better than to relax and have a pleasant time in good company, and the lively and curious who will head out into danger without a seconds hesitation.

Conditional Bonus Feat: If you have Deception as a trained skill you gain the Skill Focus (Deception) feat.
Quick Energy: Once per encounter as a swift action you gain a +2 bonus on Dex-based skill checks and increase your speed to 6. This lasts for a your Constitution modifier rounds (minimum 1). When finished you move -1 persisted step down the condition track. This lasts until you take a 10 minute recuperation period, during which you cannot engage in any strenuous activity.
Quick Reflexes: You can reroll any Initiative check, but the result of the reroll must be accepted even if it is worse. You can only choose to do this before the results of the first roll are known.

Orc

The orcs are a large people renowned for their violent behaviors and bestial natures. It is not uncommon for an orc to be over seven feet tall, and most are well-muscled. Natives of the frozen northlands, orcs are covered in dark shaggy hair. Examining their faces and hands reveals that orcs are a grey or light brown skinned people.

Legend states that the orcs were the result of a grotesque experiment of a powerful and evil mage. The orcs themselves disagree, and have numerous stories of their origins. Nevertheless the myth of their magic origins lingers in the perceptions of people. This negative view is enforced by the orcs warlike nature. The various clans and tribes are in a near constant state of war with each other. Whenever a strong enough leader comes forward to unite the clans the orcs inevitably attempt to invade the more fertile lands to the south. Several whole nations have been destroyed and enslaved from these invasions, and while for now the orcs have been pushed back to their mountains, most are wary of any strong leader that should appear.

Orcs are shunned by the elves, and the dwarves are as secretive around them as they are with all other races. Among the humans and goblins the orcs are generally accepted, but rarely are they ever considered anything more than a low worker. They are respected as soldiers and mercenaries, many successful kingdoms and empires have entire battalions filled exclusively with orcs for the most dangerous missions. However, their rowdiness has gotten them in trouble, on more than one occasion orcish mercenaries have revolted against their employers do to some perceived disrespect.

Attributes: +2 Strength, +2 Constitution, -2 Intelligence
Speed: 6 square
Warrior Culture: You can reroll any Knowledge (tactics) check, but the result of the reroll must be accepted even if it is worse. You can only choose to do this before the results of the first roll are known.
Conditional Bonus Feat: If you have Intimidate as a trained skill you gain the Skill Focus (Intimidate) feat.
Vicious Combatant: You gain the use of the Vicious Attack maneuver at first level, even if you do not have the prerequisites. You can only use this maneuver when making melee or thrown attacks.
Darkvision: You ignore the penalties of concealment (including total concealment) from darkness.
Stronger by Age: At middle age, you get +1 species bonus to Strength or Constitution checks. This increases to +2 at Old Age. You do not increase your Intelligence, Wisdom, or Charisma nor do you decrease your Strength, Dexterity, or Constitution as you age.

Goblin

Goblins are small humanoids that stand roughly three feet tall. They tend to have green or grey hairless skin. They are of slight builds, though they have sharp claws and teeth. Their faces are considered particularly ugly among most other races, with elongated noses and pointed ears, and overlarge mouths filled with sharp teeth.

As a people the goblins tend to have a very family oriented society. The family groups all vie for hegemony over the other families, only uniting when absolutely necessary. These families also are mostly self policing which in part explains the goblin tradition that villainous and dishonored goblins are banished from their tribe and usually every other tribe. The tribes themselves each attempt to outdo the others in numerous ways, usually violence is the very last resort. They prefer to demonstrate their greatness by focusing their efforts on cunning ideas that undercut their opposition and emphasizing quick thinking and taking the non-direct approach to problems.

The goblin people are not particularly respected among the other races. Centuries ago, goblins were routinely enslaved by the larger, more martial races. However, the goblin people soon learned that they could not fight wars the same way as the stronger races and began to rely more on trickery. They assassinated invading leaders and refused to engage with opposing forces unless entirely necessary. This has created the belief that goblins are a dishonorable and villainous culture, and any goblin is just as likely to rob you as they are to smile. This belief is not helped by the fact that many traveling goblins that are met by outsiders are banished criminals. Goblins who do settle in foreign lands tend to do rather well as merchants, or guild members assuming they can get past the prejudices of their neighbors.

Huh cool. I actually forgot about that one (I posted in that page, apparently). I knew of one other that I didn't like at all, which inspired my own attempt.

Amusingly looking at the first page of the preview of the second link he added the exact same thing I did to buff the Human race. Hmm, now I'm wondering if I stole it without realizing. Ahh well, I'm still going to keep going with my own. It's become a reasonably amusing time waster, and I'm sure that he and I will make a few different design decisions.

And yeah, I'm not subscribing to something to look at someone else's attempt.
