Testing a Characteristic is used to find out if a Hero or monster can achieve something. If the total is equal or less than the value of the Characteristic. you will need to read through this section as well and then read through the section for the Director that actually describes the adventure itself. this section is then for you. A roll of 2 (double 1) will always succeed. the Director may add a small modifier to the value of the Characteristic to represent a task being easier or harder. Rules of the game All Heroes have four main Characteristics. These Heroes are complete characters. physical prowess and agility.

events go against the Hero. This new value is used for the next test. then the single combatant must declare which MAGIC Some Heroes have the ability to cast magical spells and cause some truly spectacular effects. Harwood has an attack total of 14. A Hero will restore his LUCK score at the end of the adventure. A Director may ask for LUCK to be tested to see if a Hero is caught by a trap. and whatever remains is deducted from their current STAMINA. Example: Harwood’s player rolls a single dice. these points are expended when a spell is cast. Eating will restore 2 STAMINA. Example: The Director rolls a 4 on one dice. The Orc has an attack total of 13. A Hero may restore STAMINA lost in combat either through drinking a magical Potion of STAMINA (which restores STAMINA to its Initial level) or by eating or sleeping. A Hero may Test their LUCK when requested to by the Director. If the Goblin only had an attack total of 11 on that round. and the Goblin has an attack total of 15. affected by a magical spell. both fighters have avoided each others blows and the combat round ends. and the Director rolls a 1 and a 5. quite obviously. This. Diego Buldrighini (order #4105749) 1 . If the test for LUCK is successful. If both totals are the same. and looking at the monster description we can see that the armour will only stop 1 point of STAMINA damage. The Director must deduct 2 points from the Orc’s current STAMINA total. 6: Progress to the next round of combat and repeat! If any of the combatants reach 0 STAMINA. Sleeping will restore 4 STAMINA. events go the way of the Hero. the Hero must reduce his current LUCK score by 1. The result from this chart is deducted from any damage. although a Hero may only receive this benefit twice per day. Wizards also have a Magic Point score. 3: Which ever combatant has the highest attack total wins that combat round. they will fall unconscious. he will inflict a wound. In addition to the MAGIC Characteristic. Example: Harwood is now fighting a Goblin and an Orc. which represents the ability of the Wizard to cast magical spells. although they do not have to. resulting in a 5. 5: The loser also rolls one 6-sided die and looks at the armour chart on their Hero sheet (if they have an armour that is!!) or given for the monster. and a monster can be considered to be dead. or indeed any other situation that is not governed by SKILL. Harwood decides to attack the Orc first. The result from that chart is the amount of STAMINA damage inflicted on the opponent. This is the monsters attack total. and if the test for LUCK is unsuccessful. the Orc has an attack total of 9. This process will apply to combats between two opponents. 4: The winner of the combat round rolls one 6-sided die and looks at the appropriate weapon chart on their Hero sheet or given in the adventure for the monster. LUCK All Heroes have a LUCK Characteristic.2: The Director rolls two 6-sided dice and adds the result to the monsters SKILL. Replenished each day. Example: The armoured Orc has a SKILL of 7.

These Heroes also have a MAGIC Characteristic. but will in turn be hit by the Goblin. All combatants must roll attack totals as normal. although if the “extra” opponent has a higher attack total than the single combatant.

One factor that will arise is the question of light. the whole party may be plunged into darkness. although a couple of events may occur that will need attention.

If the total of the two dice is equal to or less than the MAGIC characteristic. which of course cannot then be used to hold a weapon or shield. The player must then roll two dice and test their MAGIC characteristic. If this happens.
