In our current game, we almost removed Massive Damage, and I think it's the best move we made. Since 2-hand weapon and sneak attack were already the strongest mechanic in the game, Massive damage was just a win-more situation for those, and it suck. I kept the MD save when you burn a fate point, but...

Ok I like it

so it's basicly opposed grapple check. I would give +4 to the guy with improved trip since it's a trip attempt. So +8 for imp. grapple and imp. trip.

thank you!

Grapple and Trip

Hello; Just wondering how you guy would handle a trip attempt during a grapple? it's not in the book, but it make sense that a character can attemp a trip while grappling. Maybe it should be reserved for character with improved trip. I would replace the melee attack with opposed grapple, and give +4...

Good point.

In fact the thing is that the "free" +2 save you receive at first level is a bit too good (that why in our last campain I arged you should only receive it one per save but my fellow did not agree)

you said yourself. Endless possibility to take into account. That why i don't include sunder, grapple and other in my analyze. but number wise, soldier get a +2 to hit and +4 damage that is exclusive to him. Barbarian get Greater mobility. That would indeed limit Soldier to 1 attack per round if Bar...

I would say Barbarian, Pirate, Noble and Scholar might work play without multiclassing for a long time. Maybe Nomad and Borderer too, but it's arguable. Soldier and thief just get repeat of ability, so unless you want to have multiple chain feat. And keep something in mind. Even if you play until le...

Coming back on weapon speed/reach: So what about a new manoeuver/combat situation, wich is similar to a grapple in some way but don't involve grapple. Close quarter fight (Or sometime light that) Pre-requise: Your figthing with a light weapon and attacking an ennemy with a two-handed/large weapon. A...

I liked weapon speed too. However if you want to introduce the rule in Conan, you can do as simple as Light weapon are +2 modifiier to initiative, medium 0 and two-handed -2, something like that

Anothor idea for MD was apply MD not to damage, but special situation. So for exemple, a character taking hostage a high level noble and slithing his throat could trigger a MD save. As could the tiger pouncing on the PC when this one is flat-footed. One could create combat manoeuver to simulate thos...

We just removed the massive damage rule. In theory it is cool, but there is one obvious major issue: Only two-handed weapon power attack figther and Sneak attack can trigger it consistently. And Sneak attack and two-handed weapon are already the 2 most powerful attack in the game. Finesse figther, a...

In my game, crossbow and arbalest are simple weapons. Their AP and damage are 6 / 2d8 and 10 / 2d10. This makes them somewhat more dangerous and the weapon of choice for an untrained peasant. I wouldn't allow strength rating for crossbows, it doesn't make much sense. However, there is a feat in D&D...

Strenght rating for Hunting bow and Crossbow

I'm thinking about introducing this. Hunting bow is already the worst bow, I don't think it's game breaking, but maybe I would cap it to like +3 or +4. For crossbow, since it's mechanical, the idea is at it could be constructed with higher tension to be stronger. Advantage is that a low strenght cha...

I would say highest AP if you use it as a manoeuver, and sum if it is a feat. That way it would somewhat be even better than a 2-handed weapon for AP.

Hello; The spring attack feat does not exist in Conan, it is replaced by the mobility chain, exclusive to Barbarian, Nomad and Pirate. Mobility: +4 Dodge defense against AOO. Improved mobility: No AOO if you move 10 feet or more during a round. Greater mobility: Move your speed and make full-attack....
