 June 20, 2017, 04:46 #4 Patashu Knight     Join Date: Jan 2008 Posts: 526 I'll explain it. @ (+10) 24 2 22 [+7] M -> (1d11) 7 3 4 [XdY] @: Player character (+10): Your accuracy modifier 24: Your adjusted roll (1d20+accuracy) 2: How much you beat the opponent's roll by (24 - 22 = 2). Since it's positive the roll succeeds. If it's VERY high you get critical hits (see manual). 22: Your opponent's adjusted roll (1d20+evasion) [+7]: Your opponent's evasion (if it's lower than expected, note that things like archery, being paralyzed, being in a pit, being unaware of or unable to see your foe, etc. all lower evasion) M: Enemy character (1d11): Your attack roll, taking into account how many levels of critical hit you got 7: The result of your attack roll 3: How much you beat the opponent's roll by (7 - 4 = 3). Since it's positive you do that many points of damage. 4: The result of your opponent's defense roll [XdY]: Your opponent's defense roll If you examine an enemy, you'll see a readout of all stats you know about them (accuracy, attack roll, defense, evasion roll, expected HP, etc). To learn more about a monster, fight more of them or use Loremaster ability from an artifact or by learning it. __________________ My Chiptune music, made in Famitracker: http://soundcloud.com/patashu
