[HQ2] Basic Mechanics Questions


Recommended Posts

[HeroQuest 2, p. 22] a hero w/ a 3W mastery with a -6 penalty has a target number of 17

I'm not clear why that's a 17. If you forget about the -6 penalty then they have to roll a 3 or under, and get a free bump up because of their Mastery (if it's not canceled). Wouldn't the -6 just reduce their target number to 1? Or does it eliminate the mastery. If that's the case, and I had 3W2, would it still reduce it to 17 or something else?

23 = 3W, 23-6 = 17. When I run games I generally get players to write down the whole numbers on their character sheets as the base value always changes with modifiers, augments, etc. We then do the mastery calculation afterwards if needed.

3W2 = 43, 43-6 =37, 37 = 17W
