How 2d6 Works

PURPOSE
1. To create a simple and easy mechanic to DM 1 shot missions where characters feel competent and like experts in their field.
2. To provide a fast paced experience that revolves around the quality of emotes and story instead of the exactness of dice and modifiers.

SUPER SIMPLE
You will roll 2d6 for everything!


FOUR BASIC MOVES
No matter what action you emote, when you roll 2d6, it will be for one of these four basic moves.
  • ATTACK
  • DEFEND
  • OVERCOME
  • CREATE ADVANTAGE

Each of the basic actions are resolved with 2d6 roll. The four basic moves are ATTACK, DEFEND, OVERCOME and CREATE ADVANTAGE. If there is a shady individual fifty meters in front of your position with a weapon protruding from his trench coat and you want to ATTACK; emote first then roll 2d6. Maybe you don't want to attack, perhaps you are the type to watch first and fire second. You want to gather intel; no problem emote first how you CREATE ADVANTAGE and roll 2d6. Oh snaps! He spotted you and you are taking fire; emote how you DEFEND and roll 2d6. It seems his buddies are closing in on your position, but you know how to overcharge the power grid and shock those buggers before they get to you; emote how you OVERCOME the grid safety protocol and roll 2d6.

That's it. Nothing else to know. Simple!
