Really like the VDS hackers core. thinking about how I would make it more “heroic fantasy” themed like ICRPG without changing too much.
RESOLVE as HP
Spend RESOLVE to ignore hits without armor. No RESOLVE , No ARMOR = dead
MIGHT (POWER, GUTS), AGILITY (AIM, SPEED), WITS (WITS), RESOLVE (RESOLVE)
STRENGTH (POWER, GUTS), DEXTERITY (AIM, SPEED), INTELLIGENCE (WITS), RESOLVE (RESOLVE)
Maybe even an action ratings system like Blades in the Dark!
MOUSE GUARD DICE
Serpent (1,2,3) = 1
Swords (4/5) = 2
Ax (6) = 3
GOING CRITICAL 6 or more (instead of 12 or more)
EDIT: changed category to VDS
