    Default Gladiator 3 has started!

    This is the introductory text for the third
    Gladiator

    The rules:

    Every round, players may: 1) activate one physical stance or stance and/or execute one attack; 2) activate one psionic stance or stance and/or manifest one psionic power; 3) activate one divine stance or stance and/or cast one divine spell; or 4) use one special maneuver. Any number of passive skills may also be used, as well as one shout.

    Attacking:
    1. Attacker rolls attack against his target's defense.
    2. If the attack roll exceeds the defense roll, the attack hits.
    3. The attacker then rolls damage.
    4. At the end of the round, all damage is tallied, and everyone makes a vitality roll. If damage exceeds a player's vitality, the player loses a life.
    5. If the damage exceeds twice the max vitality roll (12 for 1d6, 16 for 1d8, etc), that player loses 2 lives instead. Likewise, if it exceeds thrice the max, the player loses 3 lives, and so on.
    6. If you lose a life, you cannot act for the rest of the round.
    7. Players with 0 lives are dead.


    Psionics:
    1. Psi automatically regenerates at the rate of 1 per round, at the end of each round, to a maximum of your starting Psi.
    2. Concentration: While concentrating, you may not use a stance, attack, use psionics, or use a special maneuver. You take Defense-, and if you are damaged, you lose your concentration.


    Order of events:

    Spoiler
    Show
    Shouts and stances are applied before the round starts.
    Effects of actions (ex: damage, ability loss, conditions) take place at the end of your phase (phase, not round).
    Payment for actions (ex: Psi loss, life loss from Desperation Strike) take place at the beginning of your phase.
    Vitality is generally rolled at the start of your phase (if you took damage), and then again at the end of the round, if you took any more damage. (Damage is reset to 0 after the first roll.)


    All players start with:
    1d6 damage
    1d6 attack
    1d6 defense
    1d6 vitality
    1d6 psi
    5 lives

    Players also start with 7 points to customize their character. They may purchase passive skills, stances, special attacks, special maneuvers, shouts, divine spells, and psionic powers with these.

    (Whenever an attribute is marked with a '+', this means an increase in die size. If it is marked with a '-', this means a decrease in die size.)

    Conditions:
    Stunned: A player who is stunned may not attack or manifest any powers. For example:
    Spoiler
    Show
    There are three gladiators: Speed, Smasher, and Swordsman.
    Round 1:
    Pre-phase:

    Speed goes first, as he is Rushing.
    Main Phase:
    Smasher stuns Swordsman.
    Swordsman still gets to go, as the stunning happens after the phase.
    Round 2:
    Pre-phase:

    Speed goes first again.
    Main Phase:
    Smasher stuns Speed.
    Swordsman is stunned.
    Round 3:
    Pre-phase:

    Speed is stunned.
    Main Phase:
    Swordsman is not stunned anymore.
    Blinded: A player who is Blinded takes Attack- and Defense-. Whenever that player attacks there is a 25% chance he misses entirely.
    Wounded: A player who is wounded takes 2 damage every round that he is damaged. Effectively, it adds another 2 damage to the damage dealt by player.
    Burning: A player who is burning takes 1 damage the first round, 2 damage the second, and so on (caps at 4), after his phase.

    • 'hits': Overcomes defense

    Team Battles
    Normal players are grouped into pairs. If there is an odd number of players, the last player gets a bonus of some sort (I'm still thinking)

    Random Events
    They are random!

    Dice stacking goes like: 1d2 - 1d4 - 1d6 - 1d8 - 1d10 - 1d12 - 1d14 - 1d16... and so on. Yeah, yeah, they don't really exist.

    Why did you decide against implementing "luck"?

    EDIT: I'm playing of course.

    EDIT2:Divine spellcasting seems very overpowered. Why waste 1 point on +1 extra life when for the same cost you can get +2 lives and a zombie servant?

    Can you clarify Enraged Smash?

    Is it + Attack for every special attack you have or every special attack you are using? Because you can only use one attack at a time...

    Question for Abardam

    Wounding - I like it...but I seek clarification.

    you said
    Spoiler
    Show

    Shouts and stances are applied before the round starts.
    Effects of actions (ex: damage, ability loss, conditions) take place at the end of your phase (phase, not round).
    Payment for actions (ex: Psi loss, life loss from Desperation Strike) take place at the beginning of your phase.
    Vitality is generally rolled at the start of your phase (if you took damage), and then again at the end of the round, if you took any more damage. (Damage is reset to 0 after the first roll.)



    The last line is what worries me about how useful wounding will be. Vitality is generally rolled at the start of your phase (if you took damage), From wounding presumably and then again at the end of the round, from other people sticking the boot in if you took any more damage. (Damage is reset to 0 after the first roll.)

    If damage is reset to 0 after the first roll, and wounding looks to only do a couple of points of damage max, then it will be easily negated and you reset your damage. Doesn't this cut the effectiveness of wounding too much? To turn the question around why should the wounding damage be treated separately from normal damage?

    P.S. who wants to partner with me? PM me and we will talk tactics.

    What are you talking about of course I implemented luck!
    And yeah, I thought about it last night and I'm probably changing Cure and Inflict to 1 life, 2 DSPs.

    Shouts and stances are applied before the round starts.
    Effects of actions (ex: damage, ability loss, conditions) take place at the end of your phase (phase, not round).
    Payment for actions (ex: Psi loss, life loss from Desperation Strike) take place at the beginning of your phase.
    Vitality is generally rolled at the start of your phase (if you took damage), and then again at the end of the round, if you took any more damage. (Damage is reset to 0 after the first roll.)



    The last line is what worries me about how useful wounding will be. Vitality is generally rolled at the start of your phase (if you took damage), From wounding presumably and then again at the end of the round, from other people sticking the boot in if you took any more damage. (Damage is reset to 0 after the first roll.)

    If damage is reset to 0 after the first roll, and wounding looks to only do a couple of points of damage max, then it will be easily negated and you reset your damage. Doesn't this cut the effectiveness of wounding too much? To turn the question around why should the wounding damage be treated separately from normal damage?

    P.S. who wants to partner with me? PM me and we will talk tactics.

    JAGG
    To clarify: wounding (and burning) deals its damage both before your turn and after it. Thus it is added to normal damage. Actually, I suppose a betterish idea is to just slap on wounding damage whenever the guy's damaged. Though burning inflicts its damage regardless, after the affected's phase.

    Is it + Attack for every special attack you have or every special attack you are using? Because you can only use one attack at a time...
    Damage+ for every attack you bought (including Enraged Smash) so if you have it and 6 other attack skills, you'd get Damage+++++++. Huh. This needs to be capped. Probably at 4.

    New to this so just need some clarification:
    1) Does everyone start at max psi?
    2) Do you choose the lucky bonus at the start of each round?
    3) Does Lucky's +1damage stack with Iron palm?
