Description Edit | History

For lack of a better name! This system was used by Flying Buffalo for the Tunnels & Trolls line and it was also adapted and used by several other RPGs - including:

Tunnels & Trolls (all editions)
Mercenaries, Spies & Private Eyes
Starfaring
Monsters! Monsters!

Core elements of the system are:

  • the combat mechanics of rolling Weapon Dice, adding personal adds, and totalling each side of a melee, then comparing both sides. The lower side takes the difference as damage, spread evenly, then each share reduced by that character's armor, and marked against Constitution.
  • the Saving Roll system of 2d6 "DARO" (Doubles add & roll over, a form of open ending) for a Target number reduced by an attribute. Some expressions add the attribute to the die roll rather than subtracting if from the target number.
  • Attributes are rolled on 3d6 each, and often multiplied by racial modifiers.
