  1. First, this is all very interesting work…I like a lot of what is here. I have been working on something very similar myself. I had decided to go with a “grittier” feel and make the success range 5 or 6 and keep the wild die. In addition, altered the way the skills sat. I have made them more free floating like some other RPGS…meaning they don’t always adhere to the same attribute. In addition I changed the way speciation worked for Legend to be a bit more like World of Darkness and provide just an extra 1d6 to the roll. Also…if you have 2 specializations in your skill set that could be “sold” to the GM as applying to the situation…you would get an “affinity” bonus that would lower the target number of the die to 4, 5 or 6. Add into that the option for the wild die to explode on a 5 or 6 under certain conditions and it seems to make for some interesting sessions. I also have been toying with the idea of making all “unskilled” rolls succeed on only rolls of 6. The wild die still factors in of course. I am still working out the math…but the early play tests seem to work ok with a difficulty scale of 0, 1, 2, 3, 4-5, 6-7 and 8 as long as character points are available (as well as “hero points”). In this model I have also been play-testing the idea that 1 cp adds a single wild die (but it cannot critically fail). 2 cp’s has had the option of the wild die exploding on 5 or 6 (not tested yet and math is pending). Hero points would still work like “Force Points” used to…doubling the die pool. This is a system I have been dabbling with for a couple of years now, but I have not been overly active until the last few months (been writing the setting for the last 2 years). Now I am just starting to get to the number crunching…saw this thread and thought I would get someone else’s 2 cents on these ideas.
  2. I would just like to extend m heartfelt thanks to anyone and everyone that has gone through all the trouble to get these books back up for the populace to use. I personally have been working on several of the books, but they have all been completed by others. Thank you all very much.
