Es gibt neue Informationen zum SPECIAL System, vielleicht hilft das ja einem von euch da draußen beim verteidigen seiner Sachen und wenn nicht dann…ja.

EFFECT DICE
Whenever a skill roll is made like shooting or lockpicking, you roll the d20 Skill dice to see if it is a success; however, depending on the equipment, abilities, perks, mods, etc. being used, you may also roll some Effect dice as part of the skill roll too.
There are four different Effect dice in Fallout: Wasteland Warfare – Damage, Accuracy, Armour Reduction, and Special – each is a different colour and these are d12s.  Why d12s?  Well, six sides just didn’t give enough granularity and/or variety to the outcomes for them to accomplish what was required, and twelve sides gives lots of different possible probabilities (plus, d12s are nice and big with large faces for icons).
When you make a roll, you grab the Skill dice and the relevant Effect dice which are easy to recognise as each type is a different colour, and coloured icons for each dice are shown on the card of each weapon, equipment, mod, etc.  As with the measurement sticks, the dice icons have markers which allow players with colour-blindness to recognise what they need too.
Let’s look at these Effect dice in relation to combat.
Unsurprisingly, the Damage dice primarily causes extra damage – note that this is extra damage as each weapon deals a guaranteed amount of damage (called it’s base damage) and any extra damage from the Effect dice (one for each damage icon rolled) is on top of the base damage.  This gives a measure of reliability to damage caused by weapons, rather than be at the full mercy of the dice and see your missile launcher hit but only scratch the target.
The Accuracy dice primarily improve your chances of the Skill dice being a success.  Many sides of the Accuracy dice have a number which improve the Skill dice.  If your skill roll needs to be 3 or less then you would succeed if your Skill dice was a 5 and you rolled -2 on an Accuracy dice as that would bring it down to 3 which is a success.
The Armour Reduction dice, as you may expect, primarily reduces a target’s armour rating – one for each icon rolled.  We’ll discuss how armour works in a blog post soon, but suffice to say that the Armour Reduction icons can strip away a target’s armour, potentially allowing more damage to get through – pretty important when up against opponent’s in power armour.
The final Effect dice is the special dice.  This is a generic dice that covers anything the first three do not.  It shows three different icons with the one icon having a high chance, another a medium chance, and another a low chance of success.  When a roll requires these icons, the cards say what the icons are required and what they can be used for.  For example, does the Laser Rifle set fire to the target?  Did the Huge Club stun the enemy?  and so on.  This allows Fallout: Wasteland Warfare to have Effect dice for any purpose.
Of course, only expecting the best in the Wasteland will likely get you killed and the Effect dice are no different.  There are no ‘bad’ results on any Effect dice, but some sides are blank so will have no effect at all.  Also, note how I said the dice ‘primarily’ do something?  That’s because Effect dice have the occasional result that are not the dice’s primary purpose; for example, it is possible to get an Armour Reduction icon on a Damage dice, although it’s rare and most results do extra damage.
EFFECT DICE & WEAPONS
The Effect dice required for a weapon often vary depending on the range at which it is being used.  For example, the Hunting Rifle gives one Armour Reduction dice at short range, but at long range it gives two Accuracy dice instead.  The Combat Shotgun gives no Effect dice at long range, but gives two black dice at short range.  Simply seeing a weapon’s Effect dice make it easy to understand its likely capabilities – for example, a weapon with multiple black dice on its card means it has the potential to do lots of damage.  Also, the Effect dice on a weapon card may not be the only Effect dice you add to a skill roll too.  Items such as Mod cards (which are modifications to weapons), special abilities, perks, and so on, can add more dice (or simply add extra icons).  More on those in a later blog post.
Whilst Effect dice are a common feature of combat, they apply to all areas of Fallout: Wasteland Warfare too.  Some locks are hard to pick, computers difficult to hack, and items tricky to find, but equipment and abilities can add Effect dice to these skill rolls too in order to succeed at these more difficult tasks.​
The two-player starter set comes with 2 each of the four Effect Dice, one Skill dice and one Armour dice. The system and combination of Effect Dice gives us a huge variety of options to flavour the game to feel more like the Fallout world you know and love, whilst keeping the results of dice rolls quick and simple to read.  Next time we’ll be looking at what it means to be a Heroic character, Leaders and more…

Zusammenfassung

  • Skillwürfe können durch einen Effekt Würfel modifiziert werden.
  • Effektwürfel sind Schadens-, Zielgenauigkeits-, Rüstungsreduzier- und Spezialwürfel, alle sind unterschiedlich gefärbt.
  • Effektwürfel sind W12 um eine größere Varianz an Ergebnissen zu erlauben.
  • Schadenswürfel verursachen zusätzlichen Schaden und sollen dafür sorgen, dass Waffen nicht zu stark vom Würfelglück abhängen.
  • Zielgenauigkeitswürfel verbessern Ergebnisse und können so aus schlechten Würfen noch annehmbare machen.
  • Der Rüstungsreduzierwürfel reduziert den Rüstwert des Ziels um 1 pro gewürfeltes Symbol.
  • Der Spezialwürfel ist dazu gedacht für Situationen zu würfeln die nicht durch die drei anderen abgedeckt werden, wie zum Beispiel ob ein Lasergewehr das Ziel in Brand setzt.
  • Waffen haben je nachdem ob lange oder kurze Reichweite verschiedene Effektwürfel oder auch keine Effektwürfel.
  • Effektwürfel werden auch in Situationen wie hacken und Schlossknacken eingesetzt….

…Ja ist ja gut, ich sag es ja schon! Polly hat mich gerade subtil darauf hingewiesen, dass ihr Sortiment nur das beste und frischeste Brahmin Fleisch verkauft und NICHT Ghoulfleisch oder schlimmeres, wie manche behaupten. Ich glaube wir brauchen jetzt alle erstmal Musik.
