Tabletop RPG Development Thread


Father, Husband, CAD Drafter, Reader
Awhile back an (ex) friend of mine & myself started to develop a brand new table top role-play system.

I wanted to continue the work & wondered if I posted the docs would anyone be interested in reviewing or expanding on the work with me?

The basic idea is based around opposed roles, with dice size determined by attributes & number of dice by skill level.

The system is hitpoint less, with hit locations, with armor deducting from damage, and a universal damage chart. (The better the hit, the more the damage)

Weapons would have individual stats that affect to hit or to damage vs armor types & have special effects like "bleed".

Damage ramps up (in each location) in type, from
10 bruise/cut points = 1 wound
10 wounds = 1 structure

Once structure is overcome, limb is severed. (Structure values vary by race & size) or if you use up head or trunk structure, you dead.

Bruised/cut locations suffer minor impairment to associated skills, Wounds incur major skill penalties.

Anyways...Any takers?
I have been playing RPG now for 42+ years. I started with D&D then AD&D, then Traveller, followed by Hero Systems and D100 Basic Roleplaying. I have used my own game system now for 25+ years, but found I use a d100 system that most likely does a lot of what you are talking about. I would be happy to read what you have and give you my thoughts and explain what I do as well. My focus is always been on "realistic" gaming and "Roleplaying" has always been the focus within my games. My same game system can be used in Fantasy, SciFi, or even Modern style games.
