  • Scale Examples

    i'm trying to be confident with the scale but i'm still working on it

    in my last game the son of ares said (with epic strenght) "i want to lift the car and throw it in front of me to stop the run of the troll"

    Me: okay, you have a +1 scale because of epic strenght, i would say... 4 of difficulty because of the weight of the car, the rush of the moment and blablabla

    he throw the dices, 5 success x2, 10 successes

    He will do this with great style.


    So, my point is: in this case he had a +1 scale because of epic strenght

    But without epic strenght, i should let him do something cool like this giving him a +1 scale??

    what do you think?? in wich situation you would give a + scale?


    do you have some examples from your plays? or made up some examples to allowe me understand better the scale stuff?

    Whoa now, hold up...

    Scale 1 doesn't double your successes on a roll. It gives +2 Enhancement. So instead of 10 successes, he should have gotten 7.

    Which still aces it yes but still, something to keep in mind going forward


    Disclaimer: I'll huff, grump, and defend my position, but if you're having fun I'll never say you're doing it wrong.

      it depends on what scale you're using

      on narrative scale is x2 successes, on drama scale is +2 enhancements

      or am i totally misunderstood?

      Add:

      on manual says that lifting a car is 10 successess! are 7 successes okay to lift a car?

          I believe you are correct but i think the problem is that your only really supposed to use the Narrative scale for trivial targets. Like when a giant stomps someone in a crowd, you use that scale. The Drama scale is when the players face off against enemies or story important characters. That's how I remember it's supposed to be used.
