LOSTIES RPG Rules

Post by Jacob on Tue Jul 01, 2008 6:13 pm

Losties RPG
Standard Rules


The basic system is d10 based. Any action performed is represented by a roll on a 10 sided die. Any resulting Damage will be rolled on a 6 sided die.

Die rolls are performed with the Die Rolls section below the reply box.

On any attack or action roll, 5 or above represents a typical success. Rolls or difficulty can be modified up or down based on other skills or factors. Some actions may even seem to have an impossible difficulty, like 13, where a player with appropriate skills and equipment would only be able to complete the task only on a perfect roll of 10.

Let’s look at an attack situation example:

bom Hurley throws a knife at farao Michael: 5 or above hits
locke Locke throws a knife at farao Michael: 4 or above hits, because Locke has specific skill with a knife.
bom Hurley throws a knife at sawyer Sawyer (who stole Keamy's vest): 7 or above hits, because the vest confers a 2 bonus.
locke Locke throws a knife at sawyer Sawyer: 6 or above hits
bom Hurley throws a knife at sayid Sayid: 6 or above hits, because Sayid has a 1 bonus for being tough.
locke Locke throws a knife at sayid Sayid: 5 or above hits, because his bonus is cancelled out by Sayid’s.

Characters are made based on a system of Merits and Flaws. Players may choose any or none of these, as long as the total of the bonuses is 0.

Clumsy (-2 Flaw): -1 defense, -1 to hit with ranged weapons (Cannot be taken with the Merit Dexterous)
Dexterous (+2 Merit): +1 to hit with ranged attacks, +1 defense (Cannot be taken with the Flaw Clumsy)
Easy Target (-1 Flaw): Maybe you’re Hurley Big, maybe you have a penchant for day-glow orange shirts, either way, you’re -1 to defend… always.
Influence 1 (+1 Merit): You have the means available to trade for mundane items.
Influence 2 (+2 Merit): You have the means available to trade for exceptional items.
Lucky (+2 Merit): +1 Bonus to any one roll (or circumstance bonus to any check) per day
MacGuyver effect (+2 Merit): bonus on checks for attempting to improvise a contraption or fix something
Marksman (+1 Merit): +2 to hit with guns
Outdoorsman (+1 Merit): bonus to track
Slow (-2 Flaw): Just that. If you run from something, expect to be caught. If the group goes somewhere, expect to lag behind, or for them to wait for you.
Strong (+1 Merit): +1 to hit Melee, +1 Damage, bonus on feats of strength (Cannot be taken with the Flaw Weak)
Techno-illiterate (-1 Flaw): penalty on all random use of technology (Cannot be taken with the Merit Techy)
Techy (+1 Merit): bonus on all random use of technology (Cannot be taken with the Flaw Techno-illiterate)
Tough (+1 Merit): 2 extra hit points, +1 defense (Cannot be taken with the Flaw Weak)
Weak (-2 Flaw): -1 to hit Melee, -1 Damage, -1 Health (Cannot be taken with the Merit Strong or Tough)

Certain objects function as Merits (and count toward a player’s total to own one at game start):
Brass Knuckles (+1 Merit): 1 damage in hand to hand combat
Gun (+2 Merit): +2 damage when successfully fired
Kevlar vest (+2 Merit): +2 defense
Swiss Army knife (+1 Merit): bonus on tech, repair, or random woodworking checks

If a player acquires an item during the game, it is a bonus, above the Merits and Flaws total.

There are far less flaws than Merits, and each can only be chosen once, so there is a limit to the number of Merits one can have.

A typical character could have Clumsy, Strong, and Swiss Army Knife. That would be it.

A different character could have Weak, Easy Target, Gun, and Marksman. Oh yeah, they will shoot you, but if you get to shoot back, they’re kinda done.

All characters have 10 hit points before bonuses or penalties due to Merits and Flaws.

Good luck.

These rules are subject to change as and when we see fit, as we may see something that isnt working or may work better. We have run a test game and it all seems great though!

Please use this thread to ask any questions about the rules and how to play.

Please note that some combinations of merits and flaws (as noted) cannot be combined. For example, one cannot be both dexterous and clumsy, or strong and weak.

Rex (nino)- You may need to scale back, as you have a couple of these opposing traits.

Vlad (vincent)- Note that based on tough, you actually have 12 health, although your sheet only says 10. The sheet can't be changed, so you must remember the extra 2 health yourself.

Everyone- please remember to sign up HERE once your character is made. Once you do, I will double-check your character sheet, and acknowledge your readiness to begin.

A note to all ready players:

Although the default health level is 10, players with the Merit Tough ot the Flaw Weak, need to alter their sheets. If you go to your own character sheet and edit it, you can type over your health points.

Characters with the Flaw Weak should change their Health to 9/9.

Characters with the Merit Tough should change their Health to 12/12.

Note that Weak has been changed from -2 to -1 Health.

This is most likely the weirdest and most confusing thing I have ever seen in my life... I want no part in it!

In reality, I do, but I'm too damn stupid to understand what is going on... -2 Hit for being a Moron.

The rules are best understood once you become involved in the gameplay. When the game starts everyone will very quickly get the hang of it. I can vouch for this. Even Jacob will ... by giving me a high score on my next dice roll ....

To roll a dice select the button labelled in red Post Reply.

Underneath the text box is the dice throwing option you just need to select attack/action option and then post reply. Jacob then does the rest!
