The purpose of this is to make a full-fledged RPG system, which could be used in real games.
Voting works like this: you get 3 votes, two of which add 1 to an option, and the other subtracts from an option
Round One: Genre
Sci Fi is the winner!
Round Two: Dice rolling mechanics
d12 and Dicepool B ( certain numbers are successes, each tasks requires one or more success) are the winner!
Round Three: Success Number
Now we are voting for what number (or higher) will be a success.
8 1
6 -2
Voting will end October 1st, 12:00 GMT

Tell me if you think i should include any lower numbers, and feel free to suggest gameplay mechanics or fluff bits.

For Horror and Universal

Against Fantasy

I generally think that setting should be removed from core system crunch, but it's hard to have a good horror without it being a core aspect.

you both get one more positive vote.

2011-09-24, 02:42 PM
9, against 8

I don't really like anything but 9.

2011-09-24, 03:30 PM
For 8, 6
Against 9

9 is pointless. It gets 4 out of the 12 possibilities, and as such is equivalent to 5 on a 1d6 (2 out of 6), or 3 on 1d3. 8, meanwhile, is 5 out of 12, and actually takes advantage of the die in question, as the probability can't be mirrored with a smaller die. 6 is similar, getting 7 out of 12.

2011-09-24, 06:36 PM
+1 to 7 and 8,
-1 to 9.

9+ = Success
6- = Failure

a roll of 7-8 is a not a success but doesn't have any dire consequence, like a failure would, and usually allows a reroll on a subsequent turn.

For 8, 7

Against 9

Also for abk108's system but with success 8+, failure 5-.

Guys, this is a dead project. The success number vote was supposed to end weeks ago, to be replaced by another.
