Lloyd Dupont Posted July 2, 2020 Report Share Posted July 2, 2020 (edited) I was reviewing Jumping rule.. not that I think it might be important but I was reviewing all skills, be sure I understand them and find them a use, and I wanted to give Bulrathi amazing Jumping ability since they are creature from High G world. Dunno it f it's important... but it's cultural! For the record I made Bulrathi lightweight and strong, ie. SIZ 2D6+2, STR 3D6+9 Now jumping in the rule book is a bit lackluster. it's 3m x 1m. which you can double on special. In D&D (sorry about that unholy name 😮 ) it's 1 foot per STR point... mmm... not good either huge creature in BRP have high STR and automatically jump very far! 😮 I was thinking how about I base it on MOV and tweak it a bit with Skill% and STR/SIZ ratio. A human has 10 MOV. So 10 feet base. And maybe I could add Skill/10% in feet. In case of failure I remove the skill bonus, or double it in case of special, seems nice.Question 1: I would still like to spice it up with a SIZ/STR ratio bonus still... perhaps simply multiply by STR/SIZ but this might be "too Math intensive" for smooth game play...Or maybe I simple add a G factor? HighG creature => x2 jumping range (in normal G). and when jumping in HighG divide by 2.... Out of curiosity I looked at horse, how much could they jump with that hey? And then it hit me... Horse MOV is... 12? Seriously? Really? For the record I found this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horse_gait Mmmm yeah, after all Horse do have a walk speed barely faster than human... ok then...Question 2: Though, obviously, their top speed is a lot higher (By that I mean a lot more than 20% faster, more like 250% faster - i.e 3.5 times faster), how does that work in BRP?! 😮 Question 2a. How about jumping? Apparently world record in 2.4 meters up and 8.4 meters long.... mm... doesn't quite scale like human! 🥴 Edited July 2, 2020 by Lloyd Dupont Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
