Other mysteries and tales:
You can also create your own quests using the QUEST FORM:
The action rules below apply for the RPG, Boardgame and Cardgame. They all use the same Numeral Deck and Action Tables:
(Click here if the card drawer background doesn’t load)
- The GM will tell the player what aspect of action is required: spiritual, emotional, mental or physical.
- The role player picks one card form the Numeral Deck and sums the number to the point value of the Competency that is being tested.
- If the card picked has the same aspect of the action intended by the PC, the player gains 1 extra point to add to the sum of the PC´s Competency value value plus the number on the picked card.
For example: a character is trying to decipher a riddle and has Intuition Competency of 3. The GM decides that this is a mental action with a difficulty of 8. The player then picks one card from the Numeral Deck and gets a 4. But the card picked is a 4 of Mental Aspect so the character gets 1 point bonus for the intended action. The final result to decipher the riddle then was: 3(Character Comp.) + 4 (number of the car picked) + 1(bonus – card same aspect as action) = 8. Success!
If the GM decides that the action should be solved collectively (combat between many characters, PCs vs NPCs; many PCs attempting the same feat etc.) then all the role players will proceed as above and their results will be added together. The final sum will be compared to a difficulty or collective counter-action. The player will succeed or fail accordingly.
In the example if 2 PCs were trying to solve the riddle they would each pick one numeral card and sum them with their competencies values to achieve a final result for the task attempted. Another example: 3 PCs are battling 3 NPCs. The GM picks 3 numeral cards and add them to the NPCs competencies, then each PC pick one numeral card and add the number to his or her competency and get a number.
Retesting by the Conscience Player:
Once, and only once in the session the role player can ask the conscience player to pick another numeral card if his or her quantitative result was not good.
