WOIN Mantic Deadzone RP- Rules Ideas

We're going to try playing Mantic's Universe as our N.E.W. game- namely the Deadzone style stuff. As a part of that, I've created some stuff to use- Human (and Android) still stand as races, plus all of these, a few racial careers as well a few others. Firstly if anyone has any suggestions for careers for those races I couldn't think of anything for. Secondly, any ideas on balance etc. with the stuff I have done:

Morrus

Well, that was fun

I'm on my phone, so I'll look properly when I'm on a PC in the morning, but it looks like you've put in a lot of work!

Are those races etc all from the Mantic Deadzone setting?
 
A few are from warpath (in particular the Veer-Myn) many of them are in the Rebs faction, and there is one i've missed- the 'hulk' from the marauders.
 

Morrus

Well, that was fun
Staff member
So here are some brief observations; generally you tend to mimic skill ranks with other language. For example, where you say gain "+1d6 to Hardy and Resilience rolls" (or any other skill) that's essentially just a free skill rank. Probably easier bookkeeping to record it as that rather than a random floating bonus.

Also I would suggest more of them get Cr. increases.


  • Officer training II - range?
  • Officer training IV - a bonus to specific skill checks is just a free skill rank
  • Officer training V - assume 1d6, not 16? Is that not just a marksman rank?
  • Soldier begins play with a knife, but no opportunity for training in it
  • Soldier II - specialist weapons training is just a skill rank
  • Soldier V - range?Gobber - I like the INT ability
  • I like the idea of an "on fire" default countdown track. I really should include something like that (and other things like drowning, suffocation, etc.) in the rulebook. It looks pretty harsh though - I don't imagine many will have the HEALTH to suffer the lower effects.
  • Veer-Myn - if they gain +1d6 on END checks, just give them a higher END score
  • Zee Scavenger II - I like the use of luck to do other things.
  • Zee Scavenger III - is that not the same as a +1 SPEED?
  • Z'zor Coordinator I - range? And perhaps more specificity - e.g. link it to skills possessed by the others
 
Cr. Increases present a problem with the +3 to stats, as only that and Rep are worth half it poses a real problem with groups where REP doesn't make sense.

Most of the +1d6s aren't to specofoc skills- e.g. the specialist would include Mechanics or Engineering checks too.

Your officer boosting abilities don't have listed ranges either.

Soldiers would tend towards ranged- the knife is a last resort backup, so training may not actually amke sense.

If you're really on fire you should be in serious danger- it kills!

+1 on rolls is not the same as +1 stat though and the Veer-Myn bonus applies to countdowns too.

Zee Scavenger 3- yes- though it may come up for carrying junk too...
