Modiphius Entertainment announces it's new in-house tabletop roleplaying game system '2d20' which is at the core of several major roleplaying games l.
Mutant Chronicles 3rd Edition is the first game to use 2d20 and is followed by Infinity, Robert E. Howard's Conan and the John Carter Warlord of Mars roleplaying games
2d20 is a very cinematic action orientated system developed by lead designer Jay Little as part of the Mutant Chronicles 3rd Edition design team. The game is built around a core mechanic of rolling under an Attribute plus Skill total on two twenty sided dice. Multiple successes are possible and can be used to create the cinematic action.
Watch this space for more information. We are announcing several more major 2d20 based RPG's later this year.
The design team includes Jay Little, Nathan Dowdell, Chris Birch, Michal E Cross & Benn Beaton.
The 2d20 system is a dynamic, narrative system, designed to produce varied and interesting results from dramatic and action-packed situations. Characters roll two d20s, attempting to roll as low as possible on each one – the more dice that roll low, the more successes the character scores.
Tasks will require one or more successes to be successful, and any successes scored beyond that minimum become Momentum, which can be spent to achieve a variety of advantageous effects. However, this can come at a cost: characters who wish to succeed can push their luck, rolling extra d20s to boost their chances of success and the Momentum they generate. However, each extra d20 comes from the character’s resources – such as stocks of arrows – or adds to a pool of Doom that represents all the things that can go wrong in an adventure, which the GM can spend to complicate adventures and scenarios and make the characters’ lives interesting.
