Trying to find a quick, simple and novel task resolution system is fun. It is also incredibly frustrating. Every time it looks as though you have one it goes and falls apart.
Of course one could just copy an existing system or adapt one and claim it as original, but where’s the fun in that?
So on goes the search. To top it all off we here at Nine Dragons are trying to build a system around the concept of balance. We are trying to take the idea of Yin and Yang as complimentary halves of the whole and have our “success” based on a character achieving the perfect balance. All well and good, except that conflict and challenge are not superficially about balance.
We shall continue to roll dice, turn cards and study tables in an attempt to find the system we need, and we shall have fun doing it. Will we find it? Maybe. Maybe not.
