View Full Version : [RISUS] A quick question for balancing

2010-08-28, 03:23 PM
I've toyed around with RISUS before and, in all honesty, I adore it.

There is one detail that has always eluded me, though, and that is the general level one should set enemies to for balance purposes.

Assuming a group of three people, at about what d6 amount should I set for an easy, medium, or difficult encounter? 2/3/4 respectively?

I've never been too clear on it, in all honesty, and it's the one bit of information that I still need for the one-shot I'll be running tomorrow evening.

EDIT: As a side note, this is intended to be a fairly serious game (based off of The Shadow Over Innsmouth, actually) so the Inappropriate Cliche rule will not be used.

Please note that while I've read the rules I've yet to see an actual game, so take what I say with a pinch of salt.

As for setting easy/medium/hard encounters, I'd say 2 dice-4dice as outline in your post should work fine - though the PC's would really need about 4 dice at least in their chosen skill for the encounters to be that way.
