# .Introduction. Philosophy of the Dimensions.

This is a board game based on the open rules of role-play ChaosD6.
There are four Stats, which define your body: Vitality, Insight, Ethereality and Will.
Ordinary objects have zero vitality and will. Plants usually have zero willpower. Astral and undead creatures
have zero vitality. Magical creatures and objects are ethereal, and those who can influence reality have
Insight.
We will describe our characters as a set of these four Stats.
Every living being can have all four Stats and have conscious or unconscious abilities based on their nature.
Use of all the features can be increased or suppressed. A mode of use of each of these conditions the
presence of the so-called "elements".
Vital energy directly manifeStation of the Vitality of each of us. How strong physically and how tough we
are, how sharpened our senses are. All natural resources depend on this force.
The usage of Insight divides into 3 types. Sense and time management of space and the reasons for the
imbalance in it – the other subjects: The souls. If we imagine that reality is a time-space continuum and
those who can feel it, and manage it are concentration points that are still part of it.
Using Insight constitutes manipulation over everything that is in that time-continuum. This "everything"
could be present as energy and matter. The way of controlling that everything is managing everything in
each of its constituent elements: Earth, Fire, Air and Water. (This manipulation can be present as a
manipulation over matter (or energy) of objects in solid, liquid, gas and plasma physical form).
Using our Will is a control over ourselves. Those who have free Will can reach certain States of mind. There
are many States of mind, but their manifeStation can be describe by only two States. Each of them opposite
to the other by idea: Concentration (try to shut everything around us without our target point) and
Harmony (attempt to merge yourself with the surrounding world).
As said, the sum of the amount of Stats is always a constant number for each species. In “Dimensions”, this
constant is 40 for the playable races (our heroes).

1. BASICS
1.1. Stats and elements. Character card
The 4 Stats Vitality, Insight, Matter and the Will determines your uniqueness. This is your identity. They are
constant. As mentioned, the sum of the four Stats is 40 points.
You can change your card that represents your character, if your character passed away (and you do not have
a tower or do not want to continue with this character), take a new character and join the game again.
Your character card has Stats distribution and special info like which element has specialized skill or
another. <X> Adept means that your character begins the game as the master of its tower (and receive
bonuses from it) and can go up to the tower in question whether its Stats are high or not.

1.2. Game initial setting: cards on the field - creatures and effects in the field.
From the deck of the effects and creatures, depose two cards face down in each field. (Optional: players can
deploy cards face down on the position they choose.)
Then you choose where to depose your character (in this setting: also choose where your tower will be
deposed). The player inserts his card and tower on some tile and puts the cards from it in his graveyard.
Rule1 (action/round): Each character has three actions per round (attack, block, move or posture).
However, the monster’s actions count written right down. Monsters with four actions per round forces you to
replace one action with empty Posture*.
Rule2 (discover tile rule): Once attacked the location (tile) turns face up and it becomes "open" (if there is a
creature there it is awaken, if there are only effects there, this tile is a trap set with 20 power for each
element used in the effects).
Rule3 (monster rule): Awaken creature defends its tile and never leaves it. They attack any character who is

in contact. In case there is an awaken creature, put all effects into those defender’s hand. (All defenders
uses one deck. Read rule 5). Monsters regenerate if no enemy in contact with them. The next player controls
the monsters (the player after the one that is in contact with them).
Rule4 (traps rule): To disable a trap at least once all the effects there must fail: to do nothing because of the
high character’s Stats. Enough is one of the elements of the effect not to work and the effect does not work.
(If a trap or a monster kills or "lock" your character, then the next player chooses a card from your deck and
then deposited in the death’s location.)
Rule5 (monsters deck rule): Each monster in contact with your character can take the top card from the
deck, and use it against you. After opposing the actions* of your character and the enemy the card used
from your deck goes to your graveyard. When you reshuffle your graveyard, the monster also reshuffles his
graveyard (actually reuse the card/s that was in his hand initially). Optional: Each creature depending on his
color may choose to draws from and only from one of the four monster’s decks. Red monsters prefers
attack*, the green ones prefers block*, the white ones move*, and the blue ones posture*. Black and gold
creatures choose a deck at random. Once the next player selects a deck for the monster, the deck is in use by
it to the end.
Rule6 (tower rule): Each player starts from his tower. Into the tower only "adept" or creature with specific
power: 20 can enter (Crystal limit is 25). Each character starts the game from its tower (the tower cannot be
moved. Characters who can wear it can move the crystal. Another character cannot attack field in which
there are crystal or tower unless they have enough force of a given element.)

1.3. Your character playing deck. The order of the actions.
Each character has a deck of playing which must contain at least 10 cards. The character can make exactly
these actions. The actions four types: attack, block, move and posture. Your deck can also contain a set of
skills and effects. These actions order assembles so-called combo. The principle for assessing the actions of
the opposition is the principle of (stone -> scissors -> paper -> stone). In our case attack-> posture-> move->
block-> attack.
Each deck describes fighting style of player. In the stack can dominate arbitrary actions and each player
chooses a character who will follow these steps as follows:
Rule7 (draw rule): Each round hero draw cards until they complete their cards to five. Used cards goes into
the "graveyard of the deck" of the character. In addition, when there are no more cards in the deck, you
reshuffle your graveyard and put it as your deck again.
Rule8 (depose rule): A character may leave used cards face down, as neutral traps, on the tile he passed
through. (For refining his deck). Each character can carry an unlimited number of effects, skills or action
cards in his deck. However, he can store the unnecessary cards in his tower or depose them onto the tile-set
as traps. You may place a defeated creature as a tile guardian (with your color token possession), and to
control his actions. You can take or give him effects while you are in contact, like with every other creature
or character.
Rule9 (permanent rule): You put cards when played once into your graveyard. A card with permanent Status
are put in front of your deck, until destroyed.
Rule10 (round sequence rule): The character with highest Will starts the game first, and the characters make
their actions follow (clockwise then counterclockwise)*
In the presence of two opposing character the actions are made up as follows:
1) The first character plays one action
2) The second plays two actions.
3) The first character plays their other two actions.
4) Second character plays his last action.

The next round, the second character is first, and the first second. In a big melee, it is important to choose to
whom you will oppose your actions. (See the last section’s example with the four players)
Evaluation of the effects, skills and damages:
Rule11 (evaluation rule): Each turn (from the round), you oppose your actions, effects and skills to evaluate
who benefits and who can cause damage. At the end of the round are calculated only the point buy*
cumulative points as damage. Read rule 17)
There are two rules for action replacements (needed for ease of doing effects and movement on the tile-set):
Rule12 (replacement rule): If the hero cannot or does not want to do action, you play an empty action (or no
card) named Empty Posture. You do not receive the benefits of posture (does not beats Move). However,
still you can make effects during the Empty posture. (Minor time interval. you can still do effects and skills
or to wait in their absence). You can replace any action with Quick Move: Play your cards face down. You
do not get the benefits from the quick Move (not beating block).
Rule13 (acquisition rule): Acquisition of effects and skills can happen with conquering a field, which had an
effect or obtain an effect from the deck of another character when you defeat him. You put the acquired
effect (or skill) into your graveyard.
Why all beings make a damage upon successful action? Where are the weapons, and why there is no
separate fire and water protection of the character?
For simplicity, all playing characters and monsters do one damage on successful action. If a monster,
because of its size or unique skills would make more damage, this feature is mentioned into the monster’s
card (example: when this creature makes a successful “Attack” => +1 bonus damage). On the other hand,
if a creature does less damage than one, the system neglects that damage. (This creature is not worthy to be
a „monster card").
For example, one untrained goblin would mean for the described characters the same as some fly to a man.
Other example: old trees have zero Will, high vitality, but for example Σ Stats = 20 => use them as "terrain
map" with some effect, for example.
In Dimensions also for simplicity, we are not dealing with the type of weapon or hero’s armor. Details about
why the creatures make one damage (with their bow, sword or horns) and why for example the characters
have four damage life would only complicate the game mechanics. Nevertheless, the characters could find
skills cards that actually are unique items giving the owner described skill. In principle "you get what you
see“, (If your character is drawn with an axe means that he can defend and attack i.e. with this axe.
Availability of your axe makes your character completed. Questions such as how much damage you will do
if you wear longer axe or bow, are no interest to the game mechanics.)
The creatures are described with their Stats, rather than mastery in each of the elements of simplicity. In
principle, it is possible that some creature (a Demon or Fire elemental) is vulnerable to water but
invulnerable to fire. However, systematically the demon would have high Ethereality, which helps him
protect from water elements. Such assumptions are also made in order to simplify the system.

2. Battle System
2.1. Character’s life and damage.
The life of each creature (character) is equal to the sum of its Stats divided by ten and rounded up. All the
characters have Σ Stats equal to 40 so all characters have four life (they have four damage tokens, for
tracking their life. Monsters usually have Σ Stats. (For example, the Dragon’s life is eight damage tokens).
Rule14 (adjacent rule): Character can be attacked only if another character or creature around him
(horizontal, vertical and diagonal).

2.2. Actions and combinations (combos).
There are four types of actions (that you can use to make your combo):
• Posture (Waiting / Skill / Effect / Aiming) Basis mental States (Specification of the posture), in which,
e.g. wait enemy attack, ready to counter-attack. Skills made with posture impacts over the enemy mentally
like: intimidation, inspire anger, provocation of the enemy, bluff etc. This action is the mental attitude with
which the hero makes the effects. Only during the character's posture, you can make effects unless the effect
does not say "instant" (Cast it anytime, even interrupting the enemy’s action. No need for special attitude
and attention). ((P)).
• Attack - "Dimensions" is not concerned with the type of the attack or the weapon. Attack is an aggression
in all of its manifeStations, following its goal*. Attack’s Skills specifies the type of the attack or the
uniqueness of the weapon. ((A)).
• Block - "Dimensions" does not deal with the calculation of the protection of the hero, because of
equipment. Block represents any kind of defense that your character perform. Block‘s Skills usually are
defensive skills prevent any enemy trying to attack you. ((B)).
• Move - body movement and / or movement on the tile-set. Specify movement Skills to describe the
maneuver or interaction with the body of the enemy. ((M)).
as described earlier in principle rock-scissors-paper: mental State is faster than the movement. Movement is
"opportunity for maneuver" while the enemy defend. Defense is the best answer to the Aggression.
Moreover, Aggression is the best solution against mental condition.
Rule15 (target rule): With every action hero has to target a field and/or an enemy, excluding Block, which
makes one damage to each enemy who attacked you. (Using empty Posture, you also cannot perform
targeting. You lack of card).
Rule16 (follow rule): Using Attack action, you may follow (optional) the targeted hero if he moved, as if
you do Move targeting the enemy’s tile. (I.e. you may chase a running enemy, alternating Attack and Move.
However, you may stay on your tile if you target the enemy/tile with Attack/Move (For example if you are
channeling an effect* (point buy. Explained below).
Rule17 (combo rule): In addition, your character has a special combo. If you make your character combo
and have a contact with an enemy, you deal one damage to him. Damage is applicable only while you are in
contact with the opponents. Announce combos on their fully execution.
Why combos?
Combo represents a series of memorized movements you are trying to do in / at one (or more) enemy
(without thinking). This combination is the idea with which you go into battle. However, it does not mean
that your character actually does just that. The main purpose of your character is not to be killed, so he
changes (without the player to be told) an action of his combo that can lead to fatal. This "changing" cost
the hero / or give the enemy + "..." Bonus, converted to damage.
Monsters that character meets usually know one combo. Once met them a hero will know how to deal with
them precisely next time.
Remember: to put the necessary modifications to the bonus and any tactical advantages - terrain type,
cover, special features etc.
The Combo is calculated thus: the first action, the second action, the third action, {fourth action}. You can
find your combo on your character card. Watch out as a struggling with skillful enemy, it can hit you two,
three or four times per round.
The characters have a combo priori, but can find other combo cards in the process of game (in the
expansion of the Dimensions will be included “combo cards” along with “events cards”, “terrain cards”
and “item cards”).

2.3. Skills used in battle (print 3 times each)
Rule18 (skills rule): You can play Skills as instants (like trick, bluff, intimidation, tripping ...) at the time
when you play a specified action and eventually change the outcome of the round. The character can use
multiple skills over one action. You should carefully select the number of the skills in the deck, if you do not
want to hold five skills and no action to play.

Rule19 (element emit rule): Each effect comprises one or more elements. Character casts these effects and
by casting each element flow with power equal to his Stat Stat. The enemy resists with his Stats. (Except the
point buy effects, which cannot be resisted). If the Stat power of one of the elements of the effects used by
you is less than or equal to the enemy’s Stat’s power, the effect is not successful. The enemy saves from the
effect.
Rule20 (effect cast rule): To cast the effect are needed one or more elements. The effect are casted with as
much Postures as number of elements needed for casting the effect. Once casted (or announced), if you
spend contiguous* Postures to fulfil the effect’s requirements the effect succeeds, otherwise it fails. Then
the effect goes to your deck’s discard pile (your graveyard), unless it is channeled effect (point buy) or effect

with permanent Status. Channeling effect may continue as long as the character is on the same tile (you use
the environment to channel the effect). Once you cast a permanent effect, put it in front of the character’s
deck as permanent. The instant* effects are exceptions (read below). Postures must be contiguous to emit
contiguous elements (you cannot cast an effect requiring two elements by using one posture, followed by one
block, followed by another posture).
Rule21 (instant effects rule): - Instant effects are castable with any other action, not only with "posture"
(and castable as a counter action to an enemy’s action). Point buy (channel-able) effect’s power is equal to
the value of the token you draw from the element’s token pile. This token value is between 1 and 6 and can
be used as +/- N permanent bonus or damage, where N is the token’s value. Stat buy effects summarize the
points spent to emit some elements to reach some Sum in couple of rounds.
Rule22 (effect damage rule): If the effect does Damage, The difference in Stats (yours and enemies) are
equal to the damage.
The Effect’s Damage is rounded up at mathematical principle, calculated each turn, except the point buy
damage, which is calculated at the end of the round. If at the end of the round an effect makes the
difference 3 fire and water 2 difference, it still makes 2+3 points rounded up to 10 points difference = 1
damage. If instantaneous effect makes 2 points and 2 points the next action, the effect at the end of round
makes four points later rounded down to zero damage.
Rule23 (double cast rule): If a character has two effects of the same type, he can cast them both at once,
doubling one of the elements used to make it (the one that is selected at the announcement of the effect).
In some doubled effects hero can achieve special rule described with the ∀ symbol. (“every” effects, in this
case is at least two).
Rule24 (multicast rule): Just like doubled effects you can cast different effects simultaneously, as long as
they require the same elements (you are actually emitting an elements, announce as much effects as if you
think you can cast). If two effects contains a common element then the character can cast them in three
steps. Emit the first uncommon element and announce the first effect, then emit the shared element and
announce the second effect (the first effect casting succeeds), then emit the second uncommon element (the
second effect casting succeeds too). The character can superimpose multiple effects with shared elements
simultaneously or chain them.
Rule25 (destroy permanent rule): An opponent can destroy any permanent effect by emitting one of the
elements used to make the effect, and his Stat is higher than yours is. By emitting an element against player,
you cannot use it for casting an effect. Any destroyed permanent effect returns to your discard pile
(graveyard). The permanent tokens are destroyed with damage. The bonus/penalty tokens can only be
reversed/healed with other effects.
The count of the Effects is 50; each of them repeated 2 to 3 times. If the hero holds in his hand two effects of
the same type, it can double one of the Stats required for the effect (For example if you have 15 Matter and
Insight 15, and want to do balefire (fire, earth, time), it will do more have a material 30 and 15 Insight. If
the goal is 10 matter and 10 Insight => [30 (matter) - 10 (fire) - 10 (land)] + [15 (Insight) - 10 (time)] =
[10] + [5] => effect is successful and will do 15 damage.

8. Sample battle in "Dimensions"
Below are three schemes in which two hero "Akki (BMA)" & "GodTracker of Jund (BAP)" are located in
the adjacent quadrants and fight.
Into the third scheme in the third character (which is not seen well on purpose) for two actions "quick
Move" (the two cards that are putted face down indicate that character use them to move, move along the
map) managed to get from its tower (water tower) to Akki.
The third action of the hero that attacks from behind is again “quick Move” and cannot make injuries, as
the third action of Akki is "attack". Although Akki attacks another opponent, the unknown hero failed to take
advantage of it. (The unknown hero supposes that "GodTracker of Jund" will attack Akki and if Akki tried to
use the block, the unknown hero will gain the advantage of block Akki. However, those were just some
predictions.
The actions are as follows:
In contact, the first player (the youngest one) is making its action: attack. Then the attacked player (second
player) makes its action and if the third player is in contact and he applies his action. If there is no fourth
player 3rd player takes his second action. Then the second player takes his second action. First player takes
his second action. Then the first player makes his third and action. The second makes its third action and
third takes his third action.
The following table describes the order of execution of actions. (If a creature is in contact with the hero, it is
included in the order of actions at the time of the contact. If he has four actions per round, and there is a
fourth action for all, the characters choose which action they will use an empty Posture)

Actions target is indicated by the direction of the played cards (in this case, for clarity the cards are put
perpendicular to each other)
 1) God-seeker plays Attack on Akki (to maintain contact with him even if Akki tries to escape)
 2) Akki plays Block and win a bonus, inflicting one damage to the God seeker (or any who attacked
him).
 3) The Unknown plays "attack skill card" face down as quick Move. That is not primary action (but
replacement with quick Move) and the enemy would have bonus if plays Posture against him, but there is no
opponent in front of the water tower.
… The foreign hero and the Dragon do their combat somewhere …
 8) The Unknown replaces his "Attack card" with quick Move (again face down), and ended up in contact
with Akki.
 9) Akki decided to use Move to escape from the second striker (Moves over the tile set). Moreover, Akki
contrary to expectations runs to the tower of Water instead of running away from the second striker with the
idea to enter (He has 15 matter and wants to take the artifact to hold 20 matter and to take over the tower).
In the case, he targets the next tile heading to the tower, not the God-seeker (before the Move they were
against each other and currently they oppose diagonally).
 10) God-seeker plays Empty Posture (and cannot have bonus against Akki). In this case, God-seeker
hopes that Akki does not hold in hand "attack". (On the right, we can see the hand of the God-seeker - a
brunch of cards, which only he can see).
 11) God-seeker played Attack again over Akki. In addition he plays "attack skill" superimposed on his
attacks (as follow-up of two actions of Akki, with the attack over Akki, the God-seeker would be moved to the
right of Akki, to prevent Akki’s escape).
 12) However, Akki plays Attack against the God-seeker (the only card held is his hand. He stops running
towards the artefact and with the idea to kill the God-seeker or wounded him badly enough to make him flee
to his tower to regenerate. Moreover, he will probably succeed, because the God-seeker has already taken 2
damage, and the sum of the elements of the characters is 40 (4 damage). If the God-seeker dies, Akki will
grab a card from his deck before he resurrects in his tower.
 13) The Unknown plays Move to cross the road of Akki. Not shown in the third scheme, but the unknown
will come between Akki, the tower and the artifact. His idea is to inflict damage on Akki while he moves
towards the artifact.
...
At the second round the three players "Akki-God Seeker-Unknown" actions The Unknown will play first
(19th move under the table) and will probably bet on Posture to gain bonus against the movement of Akki.
God-seeker can escape to heal or risk the God-Seeker to synchronizing his actions with the Unknown and to
stop Akki. However, it depends on what cards all of them will draw from their deck. Nevertheless, the
diplomacy is also important...
The foreign hero comes with Move in contact with the dragon in the fourth turn, which includes the Dragon
in order of actions just after the character who discovers him (in this case, the 4th player discovers the dragon
so the dragon is 5th).
Dragon fifth turn pulls a card from the deck of the foreign hero, and opposes empty Posture card to emit an
Element to destroy the permanent effect on the character. With his 20 points of each Stat (and 8 damage life)
the Dragon breaks important permanent effects on the character. Dragon does the same (empty Posture) at
the 6th turn to break up the important permanent effects of the character.
In the 7th turn the character has prepared a plan with Posture double cast 2 "Health" effect emitting Water
element 2 times, and in the 14th turn ends with emitting Vitality element: Draws 2 Vitality tokens and 2
Water tokens worth 6 + 3 + 4 +5 = 17 points => 2 Damage. (Normally the character will run away to break
up the channeling of the Health effect but the Dragon is a guardian. The hero knows that it is hard to beat
the Dragon in conventional battle, but he has a chance with effects not dependent from the Stats (point buy).
The Hero is stocked with effects "point buy" because he is aware that he cannot beat the dragon Stats).

However, the Dragon draws for the third time card from the deck of the hero and already holds 3 cards, 2 of
them are Attack. In the 15th and 16th turn, he opposes Attack of the 2 Postures of the hero inflicting him 2
damage. In the 17th turn, the Dragon plays Posture to cut the escape character, holding an instant, point buy
effect to finish the character.
In the 18th turn Hero decided to continue channeling of "Health" with posture emitting Water element and
Reuse Vitality elements from his previous action to make "Health" effect again. He draws tokens and: 5 + 5
+ 5 + 6 = 21 points => 2 Damage. The Hero in on turn again in the 25th turn before the Dragon, but with 2
Damage taken he does not want to risk (The Dragon will get 3 contiguous actions) so he runs away with
Move. The dragon still casts his instant point buy effect, but he draws a token with 4 => 0 Damage (fails to
do other damage to the fleeing hero).
The Dragon is out of the order of actions remained with 4 damage, but unlike the character the monsters are
healed to the full health if there are no contact with them.
The Foreign hero does not need to go to his tower as his deck has a "Health" effect and can cure himself.
The Dragon beats him because he used the Attack cards from his deck. The Hero may depose his Attack
cards around, return to the Dragon full with permanents, with his 2 "Health" effect in his hand and try
again ) ...
As a rule, the next character that is not in contact with him (the God-Seeker played the Dragon. He may
choose the Red optional deck as the Dragon’s deck.
