I'm new here. Both godbound and SWN are really cool, and I'll probably run one of them this year (godbound is probably the best exalted system I've seen, I want to play a god-architect that can build cities overnight SO MUCH). but one thing I have problem with in godbound is the reverse AC thing. I've started rolplaying with third edition, and adding armor to the attack is really unintuitive for me. is there some conversion table from the current one to your-target-number-is-the-enemy's-armor one? same for the ability checks.
20-AC = Ascending AC
If I am not completely mistaken
That's it exactly! It all works out the same in the end, but for people who weren't raised to think in THAC0 find it puzzling. (laugh) Yeah, I'm dating myself there...
Welcome to the community, Roe!
oh, that actually really simple. thanks :)
is it the same for ability checks? "20-[the ability check target number]" gets you your bonus?
Godbound is 21 minus your attribute score for the target number, roll equal or better. See page 10 for char-gen application and page 18 for a more complete discussion.
