Interesting.<br /><br />I'm wondering why the 2/3 chance to avoid damage was dropped, though.Talysmanhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/02162328521343832412noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-7239577512598038009.post-60628385234470191662010-07-25T02:41:39.408-07:002010-07-25T02:41:39.408-07:00And 1" = 10 yards or 30 feet outside, no?
So...<i>And 1" = 10 yards or 30 feet outside, no?<br /><br />So pits should do 1d6 damage per 30 feet.</i><br /><br />Well of course the rules say: "<i>In the underworld all distances are in feet, so wherever distances are given in inches convert them to tens of feet.</i>" - which means a 1" pit in a dungeon is 10 feet deep, not 30 feet, but you have no argument from me over the real life effects of a 10' fall. I guess once you hit 20'+, it all balances out.Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-7239577512598038009.post-21180865475513886362010-07-25T02:26:12.271-07:002010-07-25T02:26:12.271-07:00And 1" = 10 yards or 30 feet outside, no?
So...And 1" = 10 yards or 30 feet outside, no?<br /><br />So pits should do 1d6 damage per 30 feet. Which would fit in with rolling for damage (1d6) only one third of the time (1 or 2 on a d6) for a 10 foot deep pit (a standard pit?).<br /><br />I have always thought that 1d6 per 10 feet is ridiculously high. In the real world, a fall of 10 feet is not fatal 50% of the time!Akiyamahttps://www.blogger.com/profile/01002160797943960637noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-7239577512598038009.post-12907220991857518082010-07-25T00:46:57.203-07:002010-07-25T00:46:57.203-07:00I should've pointed out that the rule is from ...I should've pointed out that the rule is from the aerial combat section, but the equation works equally well for falling in pits.Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-7239577512598038009.post-44589194050396345142010-07-25T00:43:46.389-07:002010-07-25T00:43:46.389-07:00Volume 3: The Underworld & Wilderness Adventur...Volume 3: The Underworld & Wilderness Adventures, page 27, "Crash":<br /><br />"For every 1" of height throw one six-sided die for damage occurring from the fall, i.e. a fall from 12" means twelve dice must be rolled and their total scored as points of damage incurred."Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-7239577512598038009.post-31956314725887576992010-07-24T21:37:36.065-07:002010-07-24T21:37:36.065-07:00I do not believe that the LBBs provide any formula...I do not believe that the LBBs provide any formula for the damage caused by falling into a pit, leaving it to the referee to decide.
