Is talking a free action (at least if it's short enough to actually be said during the primary action)? Does it have to be tacked onto the primary action with italics?

A: No, you don't need to italicize talking at all. But if you talk while performing an athletic or acrobatic action, I will penalize you cause you cant talk and breath at the same time and those action demand breathing.

Also I've decided to move on without The Page or Angles of Death. You guys can PM me your characters and Ill introduce them the round after I get them.

Could you give us the results table for 2d8? Maybe also add it to the rules spoiler in the main thread?

A: I had though of it but decided not to for two reasons. The first being I didn't want to make this a game so much as an RP with background mechanics. I want you guys to focus more on playing your character and not worrying about aiming for specific numbers. The second is that the tables changes based on the situation. Really all you need to know is that 2 is the worst, 16 is the best and 8-9  is an average success and this is covered in the rules section in the main post.

Your example for a d6 said that a 6 would be "over exertion" and in the case of say, shooting, would result in a grazing hit. I assumed that the highest numbers were worse than an average or above average number.

Look, if you're doing a really simple action and have bonuses up the wazoo and get a 16, Ill tack on a slight negative repercussion. For more normal actions you dont need to worry about it. Over exertion isn't strictly a bad thing but it just isn't as good as a normal success. Also the rules in this thread were just to give a rough idea about how RTDs generally work since no one seemed to have experience with them here. The rules in the main thread are the ones we are using for the game.

Question: What do your colour codes mean, and how do we know which guard we are entangled with at the moment?  Specifically, did I crush the guard that I landed on in a heap?

A:
White = Unwounded
Green = Barely wounded
Lime Green = Light Wounds
Yellow = Moderate wounds
Orange = Heavy wounds
Red = Critical wounds
Black = Dead or will be imminently

Also I'll use abbr to add notes to the NPCs and players. You should be able to highlight one of the guards and see "Restrained" pop up.

Also, for further clarification. If you roll a failure on your roll I may simply omit the result of your action or have you take a non-action if the failure is inconsequential. If you don't see your action resolved it probably means you failed the roll,

Point of information: You keep spelling "Twizmer" as "Twismer".  =P

Tis fine. Truth be told, no one else has bothered to remind me to post so I'll take that as a lack of interest. It was my first time actively DMing something and while I had plans for how to shape this, Ill just take it as experience for whatever I try to do next.

Hmm, no fair.  I kept asking you on IRC who's up next?

When? I mean, recently when? Cause if I missed the messages, my bad. But let me ask, did you just type them in chat and get no response or did you pm me and they just didn't come through? It doesn't help that my router died recently so everyone in the house is sharing the internet connection, limiting my access till we get a new one.

Also I may reboot this at a later date when I have a lot more preparation under my belt. I will do a conclusion of sorts to this little adventure... eventually, but for now I'm in no condition to keep up with it.
