    Anything you want. However, the more rules you write is the more tactical you can get. The fewer rules you write is the more you depend on rule zero. I was aiming for simplicity with my system, and drew a lot from Skyrim and Final Fantasy to do it. Let's see how many rules it took: -...

    I hope this means, "if you're an expert die roller, and can call your roll 9 times out of 10, then you can easily call the result with some confidence." If it means, "if you've recorded every roll you've ever made, then you'll be able to predict your next roll," it will need more justification. ...

    Note: I need descriptions for monster-swarm tactics... SwarmsMore often than not, one monster will have several friends. A swarm is any group of monsters numbering four or more that generally move as a group. Except for health, their scores are the same as the individual monsters of that type....

    Let me rephrase: Do you want armor types to be simpler, or more complex? Your original post says that armor types are only different by 1 armor point, so "what's the point?" Which I interpret as, "armor isn't complex/interesting enough." The OP also says that armors should be reduced to...

    If you're using grid coordinates, you're wandering out of the realm of rules-light. I guess you could probably keep it fairly simple, though: - pieces move up/down, left/right, in a number of spaces equal to their Speed. - movement through walls or other pieces are not allowed. (Unless you're a...

    Why bother? Well, you're excluding the rest of the differences in armor types, so, you have some sort of straw-man argument here. 3rd edition armors has different descriptions, costs, armor bonuses, weights, encumbrances, hindrances (ACPs), and mobility (max dex). That's a good variety. 5th...

    Two brave heroes enter a dark vault. The taller one strums a harp, singing “be thee afraid, lest thy skin be flayed!” In response, the shorter one gives him a shove. “Come, thou willt scare me, singing like that.” He squints into the darkness. “It is foe-less here, or I’ll be an elf.” Two...

    It also depends on what the mini is made out of. Minis made from resin tend to be more expensive than those made of other plastics. Minis sold at this place, http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/ are really expensive partly because they're made from resin, oh and they're done on limited runs too.

    Sorry if it's lost in translation, but it sounds to me like you're not getting enough mileage out of the GM-fudge rule. Related to Rule Zero. If you're playing a game like D&D, all you need to know is your character's level, which will give you an appropriate bonus to add to your die roll. You...

I'm not currently looking for a group, as I found a great bunch of players through pen and paper.

About Me
Biography:
I am currently playing in a D&D and Star wars Campaign that is on a rotating schedule. I use paper and pen to keep in touch with group members and as a way to find other players who might be a good match for our group.
