Re: Alternate combat resolution chart
- This is really great, Chris. I've printed it out and added it to my ICONS GM folder.
Thanks for putting this together!

> Over on my Icosahedrophilia blog, I've just posted an alternate combat resolution chart for ICONS. I made this chart because my sons and I sometimes found it confusing to figure out slam/stun/kill results with the players making all the rolls. Most actions in ICONS are resolved from the heroic point of view; for example, when a hero attacks a villain, the hero rolls to attack, but when a villain attacks a hero, the hero rolls to defend. However, the slam/stun/kill rules are written from the defender's point of view, regardless of heroism or villainy. My chart restates those rules from a consistently heroic point of view. Thus there are really two charts, one for when the hero is attacking and one for when the hero is defending.
