Newer Thoughts on Probability

Posted by:

Well, it’s been quite some time since the original thread on dice probability for d10 Core, and the website move earlier this year caused my pretty graphs to go away. So, I had to make them again. While making them again, I decided to make different ones that more closely illustrate what I’m going for with the system.

Sit back, relax, and enjoy your soda and popcorn. Let’s get started!

First, considering a dice system like d10 Core is complicated. Rather than ...

d10 Core RC1 Headed for Testing

Posted by:

We’ve scheduled the first test session of the d10 Core Roleplaying Game System Release Candidate 1 for Thursday, June 23rd, 2011. It’s been a long time coming, but we’re getting there. I’ve finished the 90-page “guts” of the system, more than enough for an official test run to get kinks out. The first version of the second edition rules sits in my hand, courtesy of being printed and bound by CreateSpace last week. I’ve made 3 copies ...

d10 Core RC1 and More

Posted by:

I’ve mashed the d10 Core rulebook into a release candidate status, so it can now go through playtesting and beta reading. Hopefully, we’ll get this thing whipped into shape before the end of the year.

Circle of Sorcerers just hit 30,000 words at just under 100 pages. That should be at least tripled when it goes to editing in August. A World Forsaken (Survivor Chronicles #4) is still at 30,000 words, and it should triple or more also by its release ...

d10 Core Rolling Along

Posted by:

So I sat down yesterday and looked at my messy pile of d10 Core notes and chapters that I’d already written. I said, “This doesn’t even look appetizing to me, and I wrote the thing.” I decided to stare at a blank word processor page set to 8.5″ x 11″ until that special look came to me. About an hour later, I’d crafted the format I wanted for d10 Core.

I always had a problem with headers and how they looked ...

Posted by:

This is an older article. Please refer to the newer stuff!

I have decided to upload the draft copy of Chapter 2 of the the d10 Core Roleplaying Game System Second Edition to the website in order to get some feedback.  I have had one brave soul give me some tips at RPG.net, but, alas, aid is not forthcoming.

This is in response to the weaker mechanics found in the first edition of the rule set, amongst other concerns, ...

SmartRoller Dice Probability Calculator (Free)

I found a piece of software that is amazing and very useful for any aspiring roleplaying game designer or anyone checking out dice mechanics in existing roleplaying games (or in any dice system, for that matter).  That software is SmartRoller.  In this article, I will discuss briefly its features.  It’s also free to download, free to use, which is an even bigger, added bonus.

d10 Core – Second Edition planned

Posted by:

After looking over the d10 Core Roleplaying Game System after being released, and with the feedback of many, many people, I have decided to go ahead and move into the second edition without further delay.

This decision was based on several factors, such as loopholes in rules, items needing clarification, some definitions, and problems with the dice mechanics.  Many people that read over the entire book didn’t quite understand how things were suppose to work, so, some things are staying the ...

d10 Core noticed on “Observations of the Fox”

Posted by:

The d10 Core System has been talked about on another blog, Observations of the Fox.  I have made a reply, so I’ll have to wait to see if it makes it into the comments section there.

I have heard of the Fuzion system referenced on the page, but I haven’t read or played it, so I can’t really comment as to any similarities between the two.  I’ve always played White Wolf and ...
