I am liking this new system Bricksyd. I would love to see a playtest using this but do you mind if I borrow some of it to combine with the other rpgs. I'm starting to compile stuff together for a true full rulebook supplmenet

So, a level one hero who puts his point into damage is immediately dead at the start of the battle right?

I'd make it so a regular minifig had either Level 0 or Level 1 in everything. Ie 1d6 skill, 5" move, 1d6 armor, +0 damage are all on the same level.

In a battle consisting of just 2 basic heroes who put their point into damage.
The winner depends on who goes first, which is decided by a coin toss.
Whoever wins the coin toss goes first, immediately dies and loses.
Assuming you are playing by Colbert house rules.

Feel free to use whatever you want from it.

I'm working on that forum play test. It is almost ready but I have a tendency to be quite slow so...
Still, here's a teaser:

He still need to suffers one hit to lose his life.
I though it was nice to have level = skill modifier (HP and +dmg) but I can see that some people are easily confused so I may be wrong.

In the end,it does not matter because of the way the character sheet is managed:
When your character receives one point of damage, add one rounded 1x1 red transparent tile (blood) on a HP of your character sheet. If there's no more HP to be marked, your character dies. Spill blood around his body.

This is what I originally did but in that case you would logically reach 2d6 skill at skill level 4 but 2d6 makes any skill roll with a use rating of 3 either a crit fail or an automatic success.
Also, how would someone creates an incompetent character? I know nobody would normally want an incompetent hero but this is brikwars so..

Well if the standard minifig is Level 1 in everything then you could get 4 points to spend and have better Skill but worse Armor or something.

Well I think I will start my battle at level 2 or 3 but you can start yours at level 4. You can even start with brikwars Heroes (level 10) if you want.

The xp system is also flexible. You can (technically) set to length of the xp bar to any number of studs. If you are playing a quick game and don't want to track xp, simply do that:
Vaguely quoting somebody that wrote:When the Adventurer kills an opponent with a Skill rating, make one final roll of the Adventurer's Skill against the opponent's Skill. If the Adventurer's roll is lower, then he "levels up".

But you can also make it so that the heroes from the first part of the QoP will still be leveling in the final chapter.

The 3rd part of the Head Separator battle had about the size I'm hoping for, but with better buildings and stuff. People would have houses or apartments and could live there and then like there would be NPC quests and stuff or something awesome like that.


I tried something like this, like 4 years ago, it fell apart pretty quick, but it was pretty cool while it lasted. I think an improvement would be to just set it on a giant spaceship.

Omg It could be like a Starship RPG, that would be totally sick. But it would be more fun if the starship had places to visit.

Just keep a few baseplates on the side for ground exploration, and use the unused foliage or new set parts for locations and shit.

Also, I forgot to mention this last post, but that RPG setup you have BrickSyd, looks amazing.

BrickSyd is always amazing, he was literally the reason I joined the forums.

Many thanks for the positives comments.

I was actually expecting more comments from you Colette as you have shown interest in the RPG style and what I propose is quite different than what you have summarized.

You said you weren't satisfied with your xp system (mostly due to the math and time involved through each level I think). My xp system does not requires any maths since all the required values (mostly skill or CP cost) are already defined variable. It also provides an experience curve and is very easy to track (btw, because stacking up to 20-25 tiles on each stud of the xp bar of every character would be impractical, use a second type of tiles that is worth your current level of xp points. This reduce the required number of xp tiles to a fraction of what it would be using only 1 type of tile).

I feel the Supernatural Power is a section that will need some work as I have never really used SP.

Natalya wrote:Omg It could be like a Starship RPG, that would be totally sick. But it would be more fun if the starship had places to visit.

This is exactly what I have in mind. The SHIP I want to use is partly built with bridge, medical bay, storage room, hangar, crew area, captain's quarter, landing gears...

Updated the orinigal description with additionnal info.
Maybe this topic and this one

After some nice time in the chat yesterday, I made more calculations about XP curve and leveling time.

There are two different playstyles that need to be taken into account: Those who want to start with a strong hero that will level quickly over one single battle (see QuickwaRPG) and those who want to keep their character for a long time and get the chance to improve it in every battles (see Campaign).

QuickwaRPG:
When the Adventurer kills an opponent with a Skill rating, make one final roll of the Adventurer's Skill against the opponent's Skill. If the Adventurer's roll is lower, then he "levels up" (Do not require to track XP).

Campaign:
Set the length of the XP bar to a number of studs that will fit your campaign needs (If you set the XP bar to a single stud, it will only requires 91xp to go from level 1 to level 14 for example which is probably even faster than QuickwaRPG).

Don't forget that characters can be allowed to begin at any level and also that a group of heroes above level 10 will suffer from crankiness.


I also updated my first post
