DBA With Multiple D6
By Jason Ehlers
You can get a bell-shaped curve in the DBA Combat Results Table by adjusting the system to use more than one d6. What are the advantages?
Here's options for 2d6 or 3d6.
DBA with 2d6
Substitute the d6 modifiers with the following 2d6 modifiers:
+2 = +6 (LH, Ps)
The other modifiers are simply doubled from the d6 CRT, for example:
Pike support +6
DBA with 3d6 CRT
Substitute the d6 modifiers with the following modifiers when using 3d6:
+2 = +10 (LH, Ps)
The other modifiers are simply tripled from the d6 CRT, for example:
Pike support +9
Best of luck, and may you roll sixes...wait a minute...may you roll a couple of fives.
John Rickman: I tried the multiple D-6 idea in a number of games I GM'ed at the South Bay Gaming Club in Cupertino California (2/19/2K) and it met with universal disapproval. The chief complaints I was getting was that it made units harder to kill and that it slowed down the games. The time elapse of our usual game is a half hour to forty-five minuets but our games were running to an hour and a half to two hours! The complaints did not come from one or two purists but from everyone playing -- 100 per cent!
