I wish you could talk Balgruuf to make his own side in the game,as he'd make a better King than the Figurehead the Empire places on the throne.

The Stormcloaks are just wrong IMO,as they NO plan for after they win.Ulfric doesn't honestly give 2 shites about ruling,just saying he's in charge.I can see why Balgruuf hates him as a person....
Looks like you forgot your reply, lol
I'd like to know what happened, but last night any attempt to reply had this kind of hiccups.

Anyway what I said was that the real problem is that it doesn't matter who win the Skyrim Civil Was, the Thalmor are going to benefit from it.

In my first playthrough I decided to do something unusual and go for a very faction-heavy character, a priest of Thalos, who of course backed the Stormcloaks without questions. He stayed faithful to the cause up until the very end ... when he discovered the bitter truth: Ulfric just wanted to carve out his own little kingdom and the rest of the Stormcloaks really had no idea what they wanted.

Granted as far as "fight no talk" I believe that Galmar Stonefist takes the cake.

That's why,as much as it grinds my gears to do it,i always wind up siding with the Empire(at least nominally) as they at least want to help stop the Dragons coming back(though their rep in Skyrim needs to learn some people skills.....).

And don't get me started on that bint in charge of the prisoners in the begining......

Design Diary: House Rules for ARevised

Post by MisterB » Sat Jun 02, 2018 7:10 pm

Expanded STATS
The three stat system of ARevised is just fine. However, for me, I like a little more detail to my characters. So I broke each stat into two stats, to cover all the basics in a eight stat system. I think many people can ballpark which stat to use for most things.
MIGHT (MIT) represents your characters physical strength and toughness.
FORTITUDE (FOR) represents your characters Constitution, Hardiness, and relative health.
REFLEXES (REF) represents your characters agility, grace, speed, flexibility, and athleticism.
PRECISION (PRE) represents your characters manual dexterity and the sharpness of your senses.
WITS (WIT) represents your intellect, cunning and your speed of thought. As well as how perceptive you are.
INSIGHT (INS) represents your wisdom, creativity, and instinctual awareness.
RESOLVE (RES) represents your characters strength of will.
PRESENCE (PRS) represents your characters natural charisma, and physical appeal.

Split 12 points among your stats. Non-Human races only get 9 points to spend among their stats because they gain two benefits for being non-human. A +1 bonus to one stat, and an special ability. In the optional character creation rules it will cost you two experience points per bonus or penalty.

What does the score mean?
-1: Feeble
0: Typical
1: Good
2: Excellent
3: Superior
4: Legendary

Derived STATS
Attack. Depends on Weapon and skills.
Defense. Based on Reflexes.
Hero Points. As normal, lowest stat +1.
Endurance. Fortitude + Reflexes + Resolve + 1.

Skills
I thought that working with only two basic skill selections or One Advanced skill to be a little limiting. So I allow Players get to choose three skills at Basic level, or one skill at Advanced, and one at Basic. This would assume a more, heroic character. If you want a beginner, you can use the original 2 basic skill/1 advanced selection.

Other Rules
An initiative is done in order of Reflexes or Wits, whichever is better.

Re: Mister B's :: more ARevised stuff.

Post by MisterB » Tue Oct 09, 2018 4:43 pm

I was going to continue my Elder Scrolls builds, but I found out, I didn't put any of my 5th edition PDF's on my tablet. Cause my computer is boxed up and in storage, till I can get my own place. So now I don't know what system I can put my builds into. THere's not many game systems I have an intimate knowledge of, like I have with D&D or M&M.

The books I do have on my tablet are:
Silver Age Sentinels d20
Unofficial Elder Scrolls RPG
Tales of the Splintered Realms
Mythweaver Reckoning
Lore
Latest Pathfinder 2e
Ankur Kingdom of the Gods
Blades of the Iron Throne
Chronicles of Aerthe
Cold Steel Warden
Cypher System Rulebook
Fantasy Age Core
Forge Engine Universal
Icons
The Authority RPG
ARevised
Dark Sages (1st and 2nd edition)
Zweihander
FHW (Fantastic Heroes and Witcher) A fantastic variation of the old Basic DnD with a new modern approach.
Invulnerable
M&M 3e
MSHRPG (Marvel super heroes RPG)
Savage Kingdoms
Unofficial Elder Scrolls RPG
WRM (Warrior , Rogue & Mage)

I don't know over half of those games, so I would say just go mental.

Okay, as much as I want to love 5e, this whole simplicity of resistance and Immunity makes it incredibly hard to recreate things that had some form of circumstantial Modifier or damage resistance. So I e been struggling with these elder scroll races.

I hated the complexity of 3e and 3.5e and find that the simplicity of 5e too simple. What do you guys think?

I agree, there are a couple of cases were even the designers had to surrender and use some old style +x effects, the most notable is cover. Keep in mind that Advantage/Disadvantage equal roughly a +/-5 on the roll.

Haligar his younger brother took after this father. Halagrid is adventuring to find brigands to get whom attacked their town and caused untold damage and stole dearly the riches that are rightfully the property of his friends and neighbors.

Builders Notes
I decided to introduce you all to FHW, fantastic heroes and witches. A wonderful OSR clone that is well worth the once over. Providing modern rule variations that make the game well worth playing even today. Unlike other variations of dnd, levels generally do not pass level 13 unless they are truly legendary beings. They list Gandalf as a level 11 wizard, though I would slap 4 levels of Wiseman onto that. If you have any other questions you can either ask me, or you can look for yourself on rpg now.

I was able to resolve the racial Features for Bretons and dunmer by using the monster manual as a guide.
