My group and I in our running Fantasy Alfheim setting decided to make a Minor but for us a cool feeling update to the way we treat or rather categorize the Effort Dice.
As Gun Effort has no real use to us we went for following.
D4 - Basic Effort, the way we all know it
D6 - Tool Effort and Small inconspicuous weapons like knives, knuckle dusters, slingshot and so on
D8 - Weapon Effort, here we placed all your classic one handed and standard ranged weapons
D10 - Magic Effort, we also decided that large two handed weapons have there place here.
D12 - Ultimate Effort, as is
The idea was to put weapon damage slightly more in line with d20 systems like Five Torches Deep, Deathbringer, OSE but without losing the coolness of what Effort does.
It’s nothing ground breaking, but we enjoy it and It felt worth like sharing
