So I'm envisaging a scenario in which a hero has to hold up something heavy; a bridge, building, cave roof. Now normally a character has to pay END for each phase in which they use their STR. But the rules also allow for a character to lower their SPD. Thus the character can lower their SPD to 1 and only pay END costs once per turn to hold up the object. This strikes me as silly. Surely the bridge, et.al. is applying pressure downward every segment. Shouldn't the hero have to apply their STR every segment to resist the weight? I realise that the hero will probably run out of END, and then STUN, and then pass out very quickly. But it just strikes me as the best dramatic option. How do other folks handle this?
73 downloadsThis spreadsheet was made to speed up gameplay during damage calculations on combats and to keep track of NPC resources (END, BODY, STUN). Here is a quick set of instructions to use the file: Sheet "NPC Resources":Type names and/or numbers for each NPC on the battlefeld. Insert their numbers as required (STUN, BODY, END, REC). Copy/paste is OK! As the fight goes on, type the expenses in any column and order in the respective line. Whenever the character takes a recovery, either type anything in the black "REC" line or type "r" in the STUN or END lines. Aid/Drain is also allowed; type them in the last three columns. [*]Damage sheets (Normal/Killing) When a NPC is hit, type in their respective defenses in any of the six tables available. Then, ask the player if he/she wants to roll for hit locations:If so, just select "N" in the dropdown "Auto?" menu and then select the local hit in the respective menu; If not, just select "Y" in the dropdown "Auto?" menu. [*]Ask the player if she/he wants to roll the damage dice. If so, just type the number of dice and select the right modifier in the respective Damage Roll table. If needed, copy and paste (values only) BODY or STUN damages in the correspondent table (the one in which you put the NPC defenses). [*]NPC Resources (again): Type in any line/column the damage taken by the NPC. You may paste something copied from the other sheets; however, if so, paste as "values only"!
How much Strength and Endurance would such a character need to carry a decent combat kit (fifty pounds) and haul a full-sized person (one-hundred and eighty pounds, clothes only) for a mile and only end up moderately exhausted?
