Grokking TV

Post by blaster219 »

Just trying to get my head around determine TV. With the following character, I've worked out a TV of 13. Attack roll of 5, defensive roll of 5 pkus a DX of 3. Is that right?

Agile 2
Attack 2
Barrier 2
Evasive 1
Flight 1
Healer (Self only) 1
Knowledge - UrbEx 3
Quick 1
Telekinesis 2

Tk Strike (accurate +5, ranged) Roll 5, DX 3, End 5

Endurance Use -1 (Telekinesis)
Kindhearted -1
Loner -1

You can also include Healer and Flight in your TV calculation, but only add half their ranks to the total. From my assessment, your character has a TV of 14.

His defensive roll is 4d6 not 5d6. You can only add Quick and Evasive dice to defense rolls, Not flight. But flight let's you force an opponent to make ranged attacks if they can't fly.

Hmm, in that case, revise my TV calculation of his char to 13 (after including Healer and Flight). I didn't check his defense roll as closely as I could have, just went with his figure of ATK 5 and DEF 5.

Page 124 on the game mastering section. That's for the latest edition.
