Fail Forward! ” Ron Edwards, Luke Crane, and other indie RPG designers have championed this idea, and they’re exactly right. ” The traditional way to interpret a failure is to see it as the character not being up to the task at hand. A low roll on the d20 implies some unexpectedly poor showing on the character’s account. This interpretation is natural, and in practice we still use it quite often: occasionally we want failure to mean sheer failure and nothing but. That’s particularly true when characters are attempting skill rolls as part of a battle; when the rogue tries to be stealthy in the middle of a fight and fails we’re generally not failing them forward.

Point Buy Ability Cost Modifier 18 16 +4 You get 28 points to buy your abilities using the 17 13 +3 chart to the right. Each 16 10 +3 ability has an associated ability modifier. Ability 15 8 +2 modifiers follow the 14 6 +2 standard system: subtract 10 from the ability score 13 5 +1 and divide by 2, rounding 12 4 +1 down. The chart only covers the ability scores you 11 3 0 can buy, but the modifier 10 2 0 bonus pattern continues above and below what’s 9 1 –1 listed.
You may be a dissenter, unwanted family member, or even a traitor in some way. Spend 1 or 2 points. You mostly work against the icon, but you’re also connected to the icon in a way you can’t deny.
