How does combat work in Roan?
Obviously like many RPGs it is contested die, but unlike many rpgs where you have AC, Threats etc to deal with, Roan literally takes combined stats + skill vs Defense+ Armor
A Boxer STRENGTH 6 using BRAWL 6 attacks a Soldier in Armor.
Boxer Total Roll = 12 no mods
The Soldier has a Passive + Active defense + Mods/Armor
Passive = 5 (Body 5)
Active = 3 (Dex 3)
Armor Hauberk = 3
Soldier Total Defense = 11
Both sides roll off, evens = 1, Odds = 0.
Boxer = 6
Soldier = 4
Though the Soldier had the benefit of armor, he takes a stunning strike to the chin for 2 Damage as the Boxer hoofs out a haymaker!
This is essentialy how many rolls in Roan work out!
Certainly hit up the Tumblr and ask questions!
