2d20 what are the Conan lesson

posted Mar 08, 2016 22:14:48 by Pierre-JeanMonroziƩs
Hi, I had a quick review to Conan QuickStart and noticed that 6 on damage roll count as 1 damage & an effect.

Do you plan to update the Mutants Chronicles rules ?

Regards

There's no specific plan to update Mutant Chronicles yet, but that doesn't mean we won't - just that we haven't got time to think about it right at the moment.

To the OP, the Conan rules also dispense with the 1+Xd weapon damages and just have Xd. When you do that, you need to make the "Funky Symbol" (or 6) a point of damage plus effect to maintain roughly the same ratio of damage to armor values.

In MC, you could do the same thing, but I don't know what it gains you overall.

5 is also an effect and damage

That's a much bigger difference.

Characters in Mutant Chronicles have far more health boxes because of hit location than Conan characters do as well, right? Seems like that would require an overhaul to the damage numbers on similar weapons.

Not quite. Conan and Infinity characters regain their stress boxes much faster than characters regain even Light Wounds in Mutant Chronicles. It's a different way of handling health, rather than a strict "more/less health".

So if a person wanted to use the Conan damage system in Mutant Chronicles, do you think the existing weapon damage ratings would remain pretty fair?
