    Default Suikoden 2d10 system [Work in progress]

    Suikoden 2d10 system is what happens when you refuse to accept that Suikoden franchise is dead and you want to keep it alive at any cost. It was originally inspired by Matthew Bloise's Genso Suikoden Tabletop RPG, but it has since grown into something completely different. As the title implies, 2d10 is used for most checks.

    The system uses a standard Suikoden formation, with character being divided into front and back row. Attacking outside of your weapon's range imposes a -5 accuracy penalty and 75% damage reduction, and that is something you don't want.
    Attack are resolved by rolling 2d10, adding your ranks in Precision skill and comparing it to target's evasion. Base evasion is 8, but this can be boosted by Armor and Dodge skill.
    In this game you don't have base stats. Instead, your HP and MP are determined by your level and archetype. Everything else is based on your skills.
    Skills function similarly to SIII. Each character has 8 skills slots, and by spending skill points they can learn new skills. They can also spend skills points to upgrade skills. Ranks range from E to S, giving you 8 different ranks for each skill. Skills are divide into three large groups (Physique, Finesse and Mysticism). Your archetype may affect the cost of a particular skill group.

    Spoiler: Physique Skills
    Show
    Battle Lust-Every rank in this skill allows you to negate one point of damage reduction when using a weapon attack.
    Armor Protect-Every rank in this skill gives you one point of physical damage reduction.
    Fortitude-Every rank in this skill gives you one point of damage reduction against Earth, Sun and Darkness attacks.
    Toughness-Every rank in this skill boosts you maximum HP by 5.
    Damage-Every point in this skill gives you an extra point of damage when using a weapon attack.

    Spoiler: Finesse Skills
    Show
    Reflex-Every rank in this skills gives you one point of damage reduction against Wind, Lightning and Shield attacks.
    Critical Strike-Every rank in this skill gives you two extra points of damage when scoring a critical hit with a melee weapon.
    Sharpshoot-Every rank in this skill gives you two extra points of damage when scoring a critical hit with a Ranged weapon.
    Precision-Every rank in this skill gives you a +1 bonus on accuracy checks.
    Dodge-Every rank in this skill gives you a +1 bonus to your evasion.
    Initiative-Every rank in this skill gives you a +2 Initiative bonus.

    Spoiler: Mysticism Skills
    Show
    Willpower-Every rank in this skill gives you one point of damage reduction against Star, Fire and Water attacks.
    Elemental Magic-Every rank in this skill you a +1 Chanting Speed. Most spell effects are also boosted. Each Elemental is taken separately.
    Runic Resonance-Every rank in this skill unlocks an additional spell or improves already available spells. Runic Resonance is limited by number of ranks in Elemental Magic. Only Magicians (who start with it) and Commanders (who can learn it normally) have unrestricted access to this skill. Other archetypes require a DM permission, that shouldn't be given too often.
    Focus-Every rank in this skill reduces the effect of Chanting interruption by 1.

    To do: Weapon skills.

    Spoiler: Initiative and Chanting
    Show
    In this game every combat round lasts for 30 ticks. During this time you can perform one action. Attacking with a weapon, using items and other similar actions are based on initiative. At the start of the round you roll 2d6 and subtract it from 30. You also subtract twice your ranks in the Initiative skill. Final result determines when you get to act.
    When casting a spell the rules are a little different. Each spell needs to be chanted for a number of ticks and the chanting starts at the start of the round. Powerful spells often require more then 30 ticks, making ranks in Elemental Magic mandatory if you want to cast the spell in one round.. Hitting a caster during chanting causes a disruption, prolonging the chanting for 8 more ticks. A focused caster can reduce the effect of disruption or even negate it completely.

    Spoiler: Weapon Modifications
    Show
    Every character starts with a level 0 weapon and sharpen in up to level 16. Every time your weapon "levels up" you can insert one Rune Shard into your weapon.
    Power Shard: Boosts your damage die by one step (1d4<1d6<1d8<1d10<1d12).
    Extended Range: Short<Medium<Long. Must be taken at character creation.
    Extended Critical: Extend the critical range (20<19<18<17)
    Full Force: When taking a full action to add a second swing you deal more damage (25%<50%<75%<100%)
    [Ailment Resistance]: Rolls twice when trying to recover form [Ailment].
    Healing: Party recovers 5+1/2 level HP after every encounter.
    Chanter: Reduces chanting time by 4. Can be taken up to 4 times.
    MP bonus: Gains one extra MP. Can be taken multiple times, each time granting a bonus MP of higher level.

    Spoiler: Archetypes
    Show
    Spoiler: Magician
    Show
    Magician is pretty much what you would expect from a magic master they have the highest MP, unlock additional Rune Slots the quickest and learn to wield the magic runes at an amazing pace. They also have the fortitude and physical prowess of a paper tissue, and unless they are hiding behind a more sturdy teammate they will die. Often.
    -Magicians unlock left hand slot at level 4. They unlock the head slot at level 9.
    -Magicians start with 2 level 1 MP and gain an additional MP at level 1, 3, 5, 7, 14, 16 and 18.

    -Magicians pay 50% more skill points for Physique skills.

    Spoiler: Guard
    Show
    Guard is pretty much a brick wall with some offense potential. They have by far the highest HP and they are best suited for heavy armor, but they are lacking in options, with low MP and a learning disability when it comes to anything magic related.
    -Guards unlock left hand slot at level 10. They unlock head slot at level 20.

    Spoiler: Slasher
    Show
    Slasher are the epitome of speed. By combining heightened accuracy with superior evasion they can dish out some impressive damage while staying an inch away form the enemy's blade. Their magical aptitude is less then inspiring, but they have adequate MP and they unlock their second rune slot quickly.
    -Slashers unlock left hand slot at level 6. They unlock head slot at level 16.
    -Slashers start with 1 level 1 MP and gain an additional MP at level 1, 2, 4, 6, 9.

    -Slashers pay 50% less skill points for Finesse skills.
    -Slashers pay 25% more skill points for Mysticism skills.

    Spoiler: Ranger
    Show
    Rangers are perfect alternative to Magician. While their magical powers are not as impressive Rangers still make a decent caster that can actually do something with their weapon. However, their defenses are quite lacking, so they usually go for a ranged weapon, preferring to stay in the back row.
    -Rangers unlock left hand slot at level 5. They unlock head slot at level 12.
    -Rangers start with 2 level 1 MP and gain an additional MP at level 2, 4, 6, 8, 11, 18

    -Rangers pay 25% less skill points for Mysticism skills.
    -Rangers pay 25% more skill points for Physiques skills.

    Spoiler: Commander
    Show
    Commanders are the jacks of all trade, capable of doing everything, just not as good as specialists. Their greatest weakness is that there are too many skills to cover and with no skill cost discount Commanders take a long time to get there. Still, Commanders decent HP (second only to Guards), decent MP, second rune slot at level 4 to mix weapons and magic and most importantly they are so much fun to play.
    -Commanders unlock left hand slot at level 4. They unlock head slot at level 12.
    -Commanders start with 2 level 1 MP and gain an additional MP at level 2, 4, 6, 8, 11, 18
    -Commanders gain a level 2 MP at level 1, 3, 5, 9, 13, 17, 19

    -Commanders start with no skills.

This runes function similar to Magic runes, but instead of giving you access to spells they allow you to use different techniques by expanding MP.

    Alright! I don't normally mess with homebrew, but I'd really like to see a suikoden game. Mind if I help flesh out the system? The runes seem like the most work. I could try laying down some foundations for some runes. Leaving it to you do to whatever you want with what I put down.

    *Signs contract with the devil*

    I know you'll be away soon enough so feel free to answer these whenever.

    The things thing that I'd like to think about is combat pacing. How long should combat take? One, two, five rounds? How many attacks should it take to down a foe? A good way to plan for that is compare offense and defense. A level 0 character does 1D4 damage (avg 2.5) on a hit. 8+ on 2d10 hits. So base accuracy is 79%. Crits do nothing without a skill? Avg damage per attack 1.9. Magicians start with 24 hp. Guards start with 42. It'd take 13 attacks to down a magician and 23 to down a guard.

    Scaling needs to be taken into account too. It looks like scale is more or less linear. Should it be curved? Should a level 5 be five times as strong as a level one or 10, 20?

    Damage needs to be boosted, that's basically a placeholder for now. Combat should last for a few rounds. Both monsters and PCs should be able to take a few hits before going down. Criticals do full damage, it's worth even without a skill boost. Damage is definitely too low at the moment.

    Scaling needs to be taken into account too. It looks like scale is more or less liner. Should it be curved? Should a level 5 be five times as strong as a level one or 10, 20?
    I want scaling to be linear, at least for HP. More MP will result in more damage, but the battles should still last longer at higher levels, to make buffs and debuffs actually viable.

    I'll aim for three rounds and three hits then. Ah. Crits do max damage plus skill stuff.

    Cool. So defense should scale faster offense.

    With the pacing in mind I can start throwing out some stuff.

    How attached are you to the max of 8 skills? I realize you like the systems a little lighter. Just asking. There is only so many skill experience to go around so the skills will already be limited in that fashion.

    With 8 skill slots you can get all Physique or Finesses skills and still have slots left. Or, you can take 3 magic runes and Runic Resonance and still have 4 slots left for defense. Plus, you can get skill ranks form your gear, to add some versatility. With that being said 8 is not set in stone, I just don't think you need more. After all, if you can have all the skills than there is no choice and everyone has everything is kinda boring.

    Ture, true. The difference would be in what skills a character chooses to learn/level up. Different skill xp from classes would help differentiate people. Characters would be different unless they maxed every skill. More skills could exist without a limit too. Just a pondering.

    Notes to Philemonite
    I'm experimenting with the numbers. I used 10 hp for the guard because it's easy math. The math below isn't correct, but it should be close enough to get an idea.

    Spoiler
    Show
    Guard Level 0 HP 10
    Guard Level 20 HP 130+40
    Magician Level 0 HP 4
    Magician Level 20 Hp 64

    Level 0 (+0 accuracy 1d6 damage) Crit (1%) 6 damage; Avg Hit 2.7
    Avg Damage 2.73
    Level 20 (+0 accuracy (assuming both peps are equal) 1d12+9 damage) x2 Crit (15%) 37; Avg hit 12.2
    Avg Damage 26.6

    Level 0 vs Guard Level 0 Defeated in 3.6 Turns
    Level 0 vs Magician Level 0 Defeated in 1.4 Turns

    Level 20 vs Guard Level 20 defeated in 6.1 Turns
    Level 20 vs Magician Level 20 defeated in 2.4 Turns

    Buffs unaccounted. Repel & counterattack mechanics should lower average damage. Counterattack damage will increase faster against low accuracy foes.

    Spell damage needs a buff and/or to scale better.

    Maybe [Rune Magic Rank]dx damage.
    Rank 2 2d6 = 7
    Rank 9 9d6 = 31

    Combat

    The Order of Combat
    A typical combat encounter is a clash between two sides, a flurry of swings, feints, parries, footwork, and chanting. The game organizes the chaos of combat into a cycle of rounds and turns. A round represents about six seconds in the game world. During a round, each participant in a battle takes a turn. The order of the turns is determined at the beginning of a combat encounter, when everyone rolls initiative. Once everyone has taken a turn, the fight continues to the next round if neither side has defeated the other.

    Surprise
    A band of heroes sneaks up on a bandit camp, springing from the trees to attack them. A Holly Boy sneaks through the plains, unnoticed by the adventurers until the creature slams one of them. In these situations, one side of the battle gains surprise over the other.

    The DM determines who might be surprised. If neither side tries to be stealthy, they automatically notice each other. Otherwise, the DM decides who is surprised. Any character or monster that doesn't notice a threat is surprised at the start of the encounter.

    If you're surprised, you can't take an action on your first turn of the combat. A member of a group can be surprised even if the other members aren't.

    Initiative
    Initiative determines the order of turns during combat. When combat starts, every participant makes a initiative check, 2d6+25 plus relevant modifiers, to determine their place in the initiative order. The DM makes one roll for an entire group of identical creatures, so each member of the group acts at the same time.

    The DM ranks the combatants in order from the one with the highest initiative check total to the one with the lowest. This order (called the initiative order) in which they act during each round. The imitative order remains the same from round to round.

    If a tie occurs, the DM decides the order tied DM-controled creatures, and the players decide the order among their tied characters. The DM can decide the order if the tie is between a monster and a player character. Optionally, the DM can have the tied characters and monsters roll d10 to determine the order, highest rolling goes first.

    Your Turn
    On your turn, you can take one action. The most common actions you can take are described in the “Actions in Combat” section. You can forgo taking an action or doing anything at all on your turn. If you can't decide what to do on your turn, consider taking the defend action, as described in “actions in Combat.”

    Other Activity on Your Turn
    You turn can include a variety of flourishes that do not require your action. You can communicate however you are able, brief utterances and gestures, as you take your turn.

    You can also interact with one object or feature of the environment for free, during you're action. For example, you could open a door as you stride toward a foe, or you could draw your weapon as part of the same action you use to attack.

    If you want to interact with a second object, you need to use your action. Some magic items and other special objects always require an action to use, as stated in their description.

    The DM might require you to use an action for any of these activities when it needs special care or when it presents an unusual obstacle. For instance, the DM could reasonably expect you to use an action to open a stuck door or turn a crank to lower a drawbridge.

    Counterattack
    A counter attack is an instant response to a failed weapon attack roll missed within the opponents counter attack ranks, which can occur on your turn or on someone ease's. If the counter attack interrupts another creature's turn, that creature can continue its turn right after the reaction. For example an attack of 8 that fails to hit a target of 9 would trigger a counter attack if the opponent has at least one rank in Counterattack. A counterattack can't trigger a counterattack.

    Repel
    A Repel is an instant response to a successful weapon attack roll hit within the opponents counter attack ranks, which can occur on your turn or on someone ease's. If the repel interrupts another creature's turn, that creature can continue its turn right after the reaction. For example an attack of 12 that hits a target of 8 would trigger a repel if the opponent has at least four ranks in Repel.

    Movement and Position
    In combat, characters and monsters are in constant motion, often using movement and position to gain the upper hand. Your movement can include jumping, climbing, and swimming. These different mods of movement can be combined with walking, or they can be your entire move.

    The combat grid is made up of four columns, each with three rows. Each opposed side gets two columns, one front and one back. The two opponents front columns are near reach other with the back columns on either side, both ally columns touching. Attacking out of a weapons reach will apply the Overreach penalty for that attack.

    Actions in Combat
    When you take your action on your turn, you can take one of the actions presented here. Many monsters have action options of their own in their stat blocks. When you describe an action not detailed elsewhere in the rules, the DM tells you whether that action is possible and what kind of roll you need to make. If any, to determine success or failure.

    Attack

    The most common action to take in combat is the Attack action, whether you are swinging a sword, firing an arrow from a bow, or brawling with your fists. With this action, you make one weapon attack. See the “Making an Attack” section for rules that govern attacks. Certain features, such as the Continual Attack Shard, allow you to make more than one attack with this action.

    Rune

    Rune users have access to abilities, usually spells, and can use them to great effect in combat. A spell has a Chant Time, which specifies a penalty to be applied to initiative. Hitting a caster during chanting causes a disruption, applying a 8 initiative penalty. Using an ability therefore may lower initiative into the negatives and the ability would take more than one turn to use. Any negative initiative is applied as a modifier next turn instead of the abilities chant speed. During subsequent rounds the user may choose to abandon the spell and that mana slot and roll initiative normally. Most spells do have a low enough Chant Time to casting time in one action. Some spells have uses outside of combat.

    Defend

    When you take the Defend action, you focus entirely on avoiding attacks. Until the start of your next turn, any damage received isby 50%.

    Item
    You normally interact with an object while doing something else, such as when you draw a sword as part of an attack. When an object requires your action for its use, you can take the Item action. This action is also useful when you want to interact with more than one object on your turn.

    Switch Position
    When you take the Switch Positions action, you trade your position with an ally. In the case of a downed ally you no trade is made and you share a position. If they recover above 0 HP you are forced to move back to your original square or they can choose to move to that position instead.

    Making an attack

    Whether you're striking with a melee weapon or firing a weapon at range an attack has a simple structure.

    1. Choose a target. Pick a target: a creature, an object, or a location.
    2. Determine modifiers. The DM determines the targets modifiers. In addition, skills, runes, shards, spells, and other effects can apply penalties or bonuses to your roll.
    3. Resolve the attack. You make the attack roll. On a hit, you roll damage, unless that attack has rules that specify otherwise or you crit. Some attacks cause special effects in addition to or instead of damage.

    Attack Rolls
    When you make an attack, your attack roll determines whether the attack hits or misses. To make an attack roll, roll 2d10 and add the appropriate modifiers. If the total of the roll plus modifiers equals or excess the target's evasion, the attack hits.

    Modifiers to the Roll
    When a character makes an attack roll, the two most common modifiers to the roll are accuracy and the target's evasion. Many things will modify this roll. The player should roll all their applicable abilities and any enemy modifiers provided by the DM. If the creatures stats are hidden the DM will apply the appropriate penalties.

    Rolling a 2 or 20
    Sometimes fate blesses or curses a combatant, causing the novice to hit and the veteran to miss. If the 2d10 roll for an attack is 20, the attack hits regardless of any modifiers or the target's evasion. In addition, the target is a critical hit, as explained later.

    If the 2d10 roll for an attack is 2, the attack misses regardless of any modifiers or the target's evasion.

    Attack Ranges
    When you make weapon attack, you have a range. Short, Medium, or Long.

    Range
    You can make attacks next to your column without any penalty. Short range weapons are effective at this range. Medium range weapons can attack up to two columns away without penalty. Allowing them to sit in the back if they choose and attack the enemies front column without penalty, but they'd get a penalty to attacking the enemies back column in this position. Long range weapons can attack any column without penalty. If a weapon is used to attack outside of its range the user gains the Overreach penalty for that turn.

    Overreach: -5 weapon accuracy & reduce damage dealt 50%.

    Damage and Healing
    Injury and the rest of death are constant companions of those who explore the world. The thrust of a sword, a well-placed arrow, or a blast of flame from a Fire Bolt spell all have the potential to damage, or even kill, the hardest of creatures.

    Hit Points
    Hit points represent a combination of physical and mental durability, the will to live, and luck. Creatures with more hit points are more difficult to kill. those with fewer hit points are more fragile.

    A creature's current hit points (usually just called hit points) can be any number from the creature's hit point maximum down to 0. This number changes frequently as a creature takes damage or receives healing.

    Whenever a creature takes damage, that damage is subtract from its hit points. The loss of hit points has no effect on a character's capabilities until the creature drops to 0 hit points.

    Damage Rolls
    Each weapon, spell, and harmful ability specifies the damage it deals. You roll the damage die or dice, add any modifiers, and apply the damage to your target. Weapons, special abilities, and other factors can grant a bonus to damage.

    When attacking with a weapon, you add your Damage skill. A spell tells you which dice to roll for damage and whether to add any modifiers.

    If a spell or other effect deals damage to more than one target at the same time roll the damage once for all of them.

    Critical hits
    When you score a critical hit, you deal the maximum possible damage against the target. For example, if you score a critical hit that would normally deal 1d4 damage deal the maximum 4 damage, rather than 1d4, and then add the relevant modifiers such as Damage or Heavy Damage.

    Damage Types
    Different attacks, damaging spells, and other harmful effects deal different types of damage. Damage types have no rules of their own, but other rules, such as damage reductions, rely on the types.

    Healing
    Unless it results in death, damage isn't permanent. Rest can restore a creature's hit points and mana, and magical methods such as water spells or food items can remove damage.

    When a creature receives healing of any kind, hit points regained are added to its current hit points. A creature's hit points can't exceed its hit point maximum so any hit points regained in excess of this number are lost. For example, a magician grants a slasher 4 hit points of healing. If the slasher has 4 current hit points and a maximum of 6, the ranger regains 2 hit points, not 8.

    A creature that has 0 hit points can't regain hit points by normal means until battle is over, which restores them to 1 hp, or an ability such as Mother Ocean has restored its hit points.

    Dropping to 0 hit points.
    When you drop to 0 hit points, you either die outright or gain the faint condition. When you return above 0 hp, usually from battle ending, you regain consciousness.

    Conditions
    Berserk: Weapon damage dealt is raises 50%.
    Boost: Weapon damage dealt raises by 100%. Once Boost is finished, the user takes half the damage inflicted during Boost.
    Freeze: Weapon damage received increases by 25%.
    Hyper: Magic damage dealt is raised 50%
    Invulnerable: Become invincible to opponents, but cannot perform actions.
    Panic: Movements are chosen at random. Magic Points are not used.
    Regeneration: Regenerate HP every six seconds.
    Balloon: A balloon is attached to the character's head. Three balloons will remove the character from battle
    Bucket: Accuracy is reduced by 50%
    Unfriendly: Cannot participate in Unite attacks
    Unbalance: Cannot attack or use magic. Using items is allowed, however.
    Paralysis: Cannot take any action in battle
    Poison: Lose HP every six seconds.
    Rust: Weapon level drops. Last applied shard becomes inactive.
    Shrink: Damage dealt reduced by 50%
    Silence: Unable to cast spells
    Sleep: Unable to take any action in battle. If physically attacked, damage taken is doubled. Character wakes up after taking damage
    Target: All enemies will attack the victim.
    Faint: Cannot take any action in battle. May die.

    Notes to Philemonite
    I made a suggestion to initiative. Instead of everyone subtracting their initiative from thirty, I had spells subtract from initiative count. A higher number is generally better and this keeps to the theme. High initiative is good and less math needs to happen. The numbers might need some work though.

    All 50% increases and decreases are additive. A 50% increase in damage is canceled by a 50% decrease. Also, I'm trying to use % in blocks of 25 (mostly 50) to make all the math simpler. In truth, I'd rather not use % at all. Maybe once the math settles we can use numbers instead.

    The penalty for attacking out of your weapons reach seems really harsh? Maybe consider dropping it to 50% damage? It'll miss often and when it does hit it'll do very little damage? I'd also consider lowering the penalties to make the extend range shards less enticing. Those shards could be considered +5 accuracy and +400% damage in a lot of cases. Very tempting.

    Skills
    A character can have up to 8 different skills.

    Physique Skills

    Precision-Weapon damage dealt ignores one point of damage reduction per rank.
    Armor Protect-Weapon damage received reduces by one per rank.
    Toughness-Maximum health increases by 5 per rank.
    Damage-Weapon damage dealt increase by one per rank.
    Repel – Weapon damage received reduced by 50% if the successful attack total is within one per rank.

    Finesse Skills

    Heavy Damage-Weapon damage dealt increases when scoring a critical hit by two per rank. Melee weapons only.
    Sharpshoot-Weapon damage dealt increases when scoring a critical hit by two per rank. Ranged weapons only.
    Accuracy-Weapon accuracy increases by one per rank.
    Dodge-Evasion increases by one per rank.
    Speed-Initiative increases by two per rank.
    Counterattack – Weapon attacks received trigger a weapon attack if the failed attack total is within one per rank.

    Mysticism Skills

    [Rune] Magic-Selected rune effects increase (see individual runes for details). Increase chanting speed by one per rank.
    Runic Resonance-Increases all rune effects (see individual runes for details). Runic Resonance can't increase in ranks above the users highest run magic. Magicians and Commander skill only. May be allowed otherwise with DM permission.
    Focus-Chanting interruption reduced by one per rank.
    Magic Resistance- Spell damage received reduced by one per rank.

    Notes to Philemonite
    I think having the magics damage reduction skill divided into three skills makes magic damage reduction too weak.
    I renamed some things. I'm evil like that.
    I added a suggestion for a Repel/counterattack system? Check it out. See what you think. I think suikoden really needs that type of system to feel like a suikoden game. I originally had a counter attack deal 50% damage, but counter attacks should be much rarer than repels (because of the much higher chance to hit then miss).

    Weapon arasgafg

    Every character starts with a level 0 weapon and sharpen in up to level 16. Every time your weapon "levels up" you can insert one Rune Shard into your weapon. Extended Range is a special rune shard that can and has to be sloted when the weapon is forged. A weapon's range never changes after the weapon is forged.

    Rune shards can be removed, but the shard is destroyed in the process. Extend Range shards cannot be removed.

    Notes to Philemonite
    I used [Ranks]d6-12 as my damage formula. d6 for level 1. d12 for level 4. Remember how you built attacks in digimon world? I was thinking that might work here too. Aoe? -1 or -2 die scale or -2 DC. stats effect? - 1 or 2 die scale. Might be lazy, but there are a lot of runes and using a go to damage formula would make things a lot easier.

    I just copied most of the runes from the game using the damage formula above P:.
