RG: The Hunt for the Blue Palace


the magical equivalent to the number zero
@JustinCase , you don't have any armor. However normal clothing articles and your yoke does not take encumbrance. Your yoke increases your carrying capacity by 4 but takes 2 hands to use.
Alright, so what do I write down? Armor 0, carrying capacity 16? And does the skill Fist Fighting do something to the numbers on the Unarmed attack chart?

I'm still trying to figure out the basics. :)

So a fighting skill (sword, fist etc) is added to your skill check when doing an attack. It's an opposed roll (skill + fighting skill (if any) + 2d6, vs the same for your foe). Whoever wins hits the other, rolls a d6 and consult the damage chart for his or her weapon. You have more chance of hitting with your fists, but your hook does more damage.

Encumbrance: Your lantern + oil, knife and hook take 1 encumbrance each. I don't think the rations do, and I'm pretty sure a few coins don't.

@wingilbear what gender is Frog Froth? Most are hermaphrodites, but you could have chosen differently... I can't remember if I asked before, so I thought this would be a good place to record the answer :)
