New Actions

This article adds additional Special Actions to Flintloque (3rd edition), allowing a figure to perform other actions in the Action Phase, for example; to sneak into a town, open a safe or understand other languages.

Special Actions

The following table is a set of actions that any figure can perform in the Action Phase.  To complete an Action the figure must perform an Action Check.  To do an Action Check a figure must throw equal or higher then the Actions difficulty score listed on the table with a D10 to complete the action, otherwise he has failed.   A natural 1 thrown on the dice is always a fail.

Example - An Orc Rifleman is climbing a high wall to reach an open window for his turn’s action, which has a difficulty score of 6+.  He throws a D10 and scores 8, so he climbs up the wall and through the top floor window.

Secondary Skills

Newly created figures can spend points on secondary skills (see list later for skills descriptions) additional to any skills from the rules. A figure can have any number of secondary skills.

Each skill has a skill level, from Level 1 to a maximum level of 5.  To purchase a skill at level 1 to will only cost 1 skill point.  To increase a skill to a higher level, it’s only cost 1 point per level (i.e. for a level 3 skill, it would cost 3 points).

Each skill adds a modifier equals to its skill level that adds to an Action Check dice roll that the skill applies too (i.e.  A level 3 Agility skill will add a +3 modifier to the D10 when the figure is jumping a gap).

Each scenario the figure is involved in, the figure can acquire more skill points to spend on his existing skills or can purchase a new skill.  If the game was won then the figures gains 2 skills points, but if the game was lose than he receives only 1.
