TMR - TMR stands for Tactical Movement Rate and reflects the number of feet you can move in a round while still staying vigilant and able to adequately defend yourself from attacks. Characters can move faster than this rate (see Running, Shooting, Chasing and Fleeing rules) but will suffer some penalties to defense.

Hours of Sleep Needed - This number reflects the hours of sleep needed each day to be fully rested.

Continuous Exertion - This number reflects how many hours the character may push themselves without sleep before they start to feel fatigued. It assumes occasional rests. After this time, the character is at -10 to all actions. An additional -10 is assessed every (Continuous Exertion / 4) hours thereafter until the character is able to finally catch up on their sleep. They also suffer 10 points of NL damage every time the penalty is assessed and this damage does not heal until the character catches up on their sleep.

Death's Door - See Recovering From Wounds.

Death's Door Recover - See Recovering From Wounds.

Temperature Range - This is the range at which the character suffer no ill effects from extremes of temperature. This assumes that the character is moderately active (e.g., walking or otherwise moving around) and dressed in light clothing, including footwear (if applicable for race). If the character is inactive (e.g., trying to sleep, increase the lower range by 15 degrees). Obviously different clothing and armor will adjust these number. For example, a heavy coat will lower both the upper and lower ranges. For example, someone with a 15 CON wearing a coat that offers 40 degree protection changes their Temperature Range from 50 to 110, to 10 to 70 and they will begin suffering ill effects of heat if they continue to wear the coat in temperatures over 70 degrees. (This is a new rule as of 4/13/2016 and may need to be adjusted after testing.)

CON 26
  • Cloudkill
  • Fever
  • Noxious Vapors
  • Slow
  • Stinking Cloud

Disbelieve - INT also figures into the character's Disbelieve Illusion roll, together with PER. To compute Disbelieve Illusion, take the average of INT and PER and apply it to the Magic Save column under MA.

Insight- This roll can be used to see if a character can figure out a complex problem or issue where a straight INT roll does not make sense. It should be used in cases where it is highly unlikely that a low INT character would figure out the problem but a high INT character might. This roll should only be used as a last resort after giving the characters a chance to figure the problem out for themselves. The character must roll equal to or less than the number indicated to figure out an answer to the problem.

Skills 1.0 - Characters with high intelligence can learn some skills that normally have an EXP multiple that is higher than 1.0 for a multiple of 1.0. For example, a mage normally has a 2.0 multiple on Warrior skills. That means that all skills in the Warrior list normally cost him twice as many EXP to learn and improve. The number in this column is the number of skills that the character can choose to learn at a 1.0 multiple. For example, a mage with a 20 INT can choose 3 skills to learn at a 1.0 multiple. If he chooses a skill from the Warrior list, that one skill will have a multiple of 1.0 instead of 2.0. Alternately, the character can use 2 Skills 1.0 slots to learn a skill at 75% of normal cost. This only applies to relatively mundane skills and does not apply to combat skills, spells or spell casting skills, talents or special abilities.

Flash of Insight - Characters with an intelligence of 24 or higher can request a "Flash of Insight" once per month (real life month). This is equivalent to the person making a successful Insight roll but the character does not have to wait for the GM to request one. If the group is stuck or otherwise is looking for a good idea on how to solve a specific issue, or how to proceed in a specific adventure, he can request a Flash of Insight. The GM is free to veto the Flash of Insight. If he allows it, the amount of information provided is entirely at his discretion. However, a Flash of Insight never results in incorrect information. This is meant to represent that the character is a genius and might see an answer where someone of lesser intelligence may not.

Spell Immunities - Those with super-human (26 or higher) Intelligence are immune to some spells, as indicated below:

INT 26
  • Blur
  • Illusion

INT 27
  • Mirror Images
  • Ventriloquism (illusion)
  • Walking Unseen

INT 28
  • Change Self
  • Illusionary Wall
  • Invisibility
  • Project Image

INT 29
  • Confusion
  • Shadow Door
  • Shadowform
  • Wraithcloak

INT 30
  • Blending
  • Phantasmal Force
  • Shadow Magic

INT 31
  • Phantasmal Killer

INT 33
  • Maze




KNOWLEDGE
KNOW is knowledge. It affects the skill rolls for all knowledge-based tasks. It also reflects accumulated knowledge and the ability to accurately remember things. To have a chance of remembering things verbatim, you will want to buy the Memory talent.

Those with a very high KNOW also have something called Everything Lore. This represents the fact that they seem to know a little about everything. Anytime the GM calls for a lore roll (animal lore, magic lore, etc.) those with Everything Lore can attempt a roll and if they make it, they know something about the situation. Maybe not as much as someone with the actual skill, but they will know something.

Know can also affect the number of spells that a mage can have in memory.

Attunement - This is your chance to attune to a magical item. It is required for most items with invokable powers but is not usually needed for passive abilities. Thus, it is not normally required for items such as +2 Leather Armor or a +1 Ring of Protection, but is required for items such as a Wand of Fireballs or a Ring of Shooting Stars. You can only try once to attune to an item (either by yourself or with the help of a Potion of Attunement or an Attunement Ritual). If you fail, you cannot try again unless your MA improves. While attuning to an object, a mage is able to see the attunement attempting to happen by using Power Perception. See Power Perception skill for more information.

Attunement Roll
  • Failure - Cannot attune to the item unless MA improves.
  • Success - Attunes to the item in the time indicated in the description of the item.
  • Critical Success - Attunes in half the normal time.
  • Grievous Success - Attunes in one quarter of the normal time or immediately, at the discretion of the GM.

Magic Rings - This column shows the maximum number of magical rings that can be worn. Most characters are only able to wear and gain the benefit from two magical rings at a time. If a third magical ring is put on, it will not function until one of the other two rings is removed and they have attuned to the new one. If two numbers are listed separated by a slant bar, the first number shows the number of rings that can be attuned to while the second shows how many can be worn at one time. For example, someone with an MA of 9 can be attuned to 2 rings, but can only wear (and gain the benefit from) one at a time. If 2 rings are worn, neither will function until one is removed. Switching from one attuned ring to another can be done in a single round if the second ring is handy, and no attunement time is required (assuming the character has already spent time attuning and made their roll). Characters with a very low MA can only gain the benefit from a single magical ring while those with a very high MA can wear and gain the benefit from more than 2 magical rings.




LUCK
Luck is a measure of just how lucky the character can be at times. Some spells require LUCK saves to avoid. Characters with a very high luck also have Luck Points and Fate Points.

LUCK Points - Use these points in one of the following ways (uses 1 point):
  • The player may choose to re-roll a single die roll of their choice. The roll must have been one that was made by them, or one that was made for a beneficial effect on them.
  • The player may attempt to use a Luck point to force their opponent to reroll one of their die rolls. If the opponent has an available Luck point, they can use it to counter the attempt. Both Luck points are used and the original roll stands. Note that the player may not use a second Luck point to counter the counter.
  • The player may use a Luck point to modify an existing percentile die roll by plus or minus 5 (or a d20 roll by plus or minus 1). In combat, can increase quality of roll by 1 stage (miss to hit, hit to crit if roll is low enough) but can't improve normal hit to grievous.
  • The player may use a Luck point to prevent losing hit points after going into negative hit points (unconscious, dying or death's door). If the character does not have Luck points, the character can sacrifice a point of Luck to accomplish the same thing. The point of Luck is lost permanently.
  • The player may use a Luck point to automatically allow an item to make an item saving throw.

Only "significant" NPC's should have any chance of having Luck points. Normal NPC's do not have Luck points.

Luck points return at the beginning of each month.

Fate Points - These points are one of the most powerful tools in a players life. By use of these points, a player may choose to change fate. They may choose the success or failure of ANYone die roll. Be it their own, a fellow party members, or the GM’s! Because of the power involved, these points are only regained six months (real time) after they are used. So, if a player with 2 Fate points were to use a one in August, it will come back on Feb 1 of the following year. Please note: The GM has final say in this power. If the GM declares that Fate Points cannot be used in a given situation, they cannot be used.

PROT - This is the character's combat protection value (PROT) when they are not wearing armor (i.e., they are wearing normal clothing or less). This value will not stack with things such as Bracers of Protection but it will stack with a Ring of Protection or other items that provides a bonus to protection.




CHARISMA
CHA is Charisma. It's a measure of your personality in dealing with other people, either one or one or in large groups. Charisma modifies all interpersonal tasks. There are also some rolls associated with CHA.

Service Please- This value represents your chance of getting routine service at a typical mercantile establishment (add 10% to this value if you speak the native language of the area; also add 10% if you are dressed in “fine” clothing). If you fail the roll, there is something about you that the shopkeeper doesn’t like and will charge you an extra 6-15% (d10+5) for the service or merchandise that you are buying. If you fail the roll by 26 to 50, the shopkeeper will make no effort to hide the fact that he doesn’t like you and will charge you 16-25% (d10+15) for the service or merchandise. With a failure of over 50, the shopkeeper will refuse you service. If you make the roll by over 50%, then the shopkeeper likes you and will give you a 5% (10% if you make the roll by 75) discount. He will also be more chatty and affable and will happily talk to you and answer questions (+25% on the “Information Please” table, minimum result of Partial Success.

Information Please – When you want to obtain information from an NPC, roll percentile dice and add this modifier. The result is compared to the static maneuver table.

Presence - Presence is the ability to command an immediate response from a target or targets. For example, the group is in combat with a group of bandits. The group is clearly stronger and have already killed or wounded a number of them while taking relatively minor wounds themselves. The leader of the group attempts a Presence roll to convince the remaining bandits to surrender. Note that the GM can choose when to allow Presence attacks and when not to and will generally disallow them against significant NPC's. Compare the result to the following table:

Result isEffect of Presence Attack
Less than the target CHA or WPTarget is unimpressed and will ignore or ridicule the attempt at command
Equal to or greater than 1x the target's CHA or WP but less than 2xTarget is impressed, will consider the attacker's words and may heed them if the situation is otherwise hopeless (WP save at +15)
Equal to or greater than 2x the target's CHA or WP but less than 3xTarget is very impressed and will likely heed the attacker's words if the situation is dire (WP save)
Equal to or greater than 3x the target's CHA or WP but less than 4xTarget is awed and will probably do as the attacker commands (WP save at -15)
Equal to 4x or greater the target's CHA or WPTarget will do as commanded

Charm - Beings with superhuman charisma have a natural charming ability that makes others want to aid and assist them. The being with the superhuman charisma must roll equal to or less than the number in this column to affect the targets. Someone who makes a mental save can resist this effect but, in general, this should only be rolled for player characters (PC's) and significant NPC's.



PERCEPTION
PER is perception. It's your ability to notice things that are not obvious. PER and INT combine to give you your chance to disbelieve illusions though this is not automatic. You must state that you are trying to disbelieve an illusion in order to get a roll. In trying to disbelieve an illusion, you are studying what you believe to be the illusory scene looking for inconsistencies that would indicate that it is not right. If you are willing to take a risk to disbelive the illusion, you gain a +10 to your roll. For example, you believe that the fire giant attacking you is an illusion. You can attempt to disbelieve illusions by spending the round studying the fire giant looking for something that doesn't look right. If you tell the GM that you are willing to stand still and let the fire giant hit you with his weapon, then you get a +10 to your disbelieve illusions roll. If the fire giant is real, or if it is an illusion but you fail your roll, you will automatically get hit.

PER rolls are often called for by the GM to notice things. The group walks by a secret door in a hallway, the GM may ask everyone to make a PER roll and if you make a one half PER roll, you will notice the secret door. Or maybe the GM will just make the rolls without letting you know.

Find Secret Door - This is the character's chance of finding a secret when actively searching for one. In general, it takes 10 minutes to search a 20 foot long by 10 foot high section of relatively busy wall (with furniture, torch brackets, etc.). Note that each rank with Locate Secret Opening skill increases the character's effective PER by 1 for the purpose of finding secret doors.

Notice Secret Door - This is the character's chance of noticing a secret when not actively search for one, but when passing within 10 feet of it. The GM will secret make this roll whenever someone with a bonus higher than 0 passes within 10 feet of a secret door.

Subtle Perception - This is the character's chance to notice something that would escape the notice of those with average Perception. The GM will determine whether he wants a skill roll (roll and add this bonus) or a standard roll (must roll equal to or less than this bonus). In some cases, the GM may make the roll for the character.


Super-Human Characteristics
Those with super-human characteristics (characteristic scores of 26 or higher) gain the following benefits.


STAT 26
  • Anytime the GM calls for a STAT roll, roll twice and take the best result.
  • Whenever a skill roll is made for the applicable stat, you may ignore the first roll made and roll again. You must take the second roll. The applicable stat must be the only stat that impacts the roll.
