A Guide to CombatCombat on Warriors of the Lake is a simple affair. It consists of a set number of dice depending on your characters rank. The goal is to get the highest possible amount of damage done to your opponent as possible. Please note that the higher ranking your warrior, you will have a different attack dice. Your amount of combat rolls however, must match the lower ranking cat.
For this guide, we will use 2 cats of apprentice rank. We'll dub them, Mistpaw and Flamepaw.Since they are both apprentices, each have a total of 3 rolls. You may choose which of these 3 you want to use as Attack or Defense.
Attack Dice:This dice is heavily focused on damage. Most of the time, it's a simple number. That is what we will show in this example.Roll 1: MistpawAs you can see, the dice roll was a +7 damage. This means Flamepaw now has 7 damage.Defence Dice:Of course, Flamepaw doesn't have to be a sitting target. They may choose to roll a Defence dice. This will reduce the impact of the hit, but only if rolled before the opponents attack dice. In this example, the 7 damage still stands.Roll 1: FlamepawAs you can see, Flamepaw rolled a 4 in defence. This means that the next attack they are hit with will subtract 4 from it's damage. So a roll of 6 damage would be reduced down to 2. A roll of 3 damage would do nothing. It is important to note that a defence dice, only lasts for the opponents next turn, and is not stackable.
Specialty Roll:Specialty rolls are rare and few. However they can turn the balance into the opponents favour. These will contain both attack and defence and are embedded in both the attack and the defence dice. Each dice has a different set, geared towards attacking or defending respectively.Roll 2: MistpawIn this example, Mistpaw got "Agility Strike" which allows her a strong +5 damage, unfortunately, it also drops her guard and puts her in close range for an attack from Flamepaw. Lowering her defence. Since he also rolled a defensive 4 earlier, he only takes one damage.Roll 2: FlamepawDue to Mistpaw's lowered defence, Flamepaw's attack deals a large +8 damage. Now, the battle is perfectly even. It all comes down to the final rolls. Everyone pick your winner!
Roll 3: MistpawRoll 3: Flamepaw
Mistpaw's total dealt Damage: 10Flamepaw's total dealt Damage: 11In this example, Flamepaw was the victor because he dealt more damage to Mistpaw than she did to him. Utilizing both dice is the key to victory, although luck does also play a part. It's ultimately up to you to decide how your cat fights, and remember that outside of rank requirements, the system is optional.
