    PVP-RP: Expirimental Turn-based combat engine

    Post  Nico on Mon Nov 29, 2010 9:00 pm

    PVP-RP GUIDE: VER.0.1 ALPHA
    Player Versus Player Role Play (PVP-RP) is an expirimental combat simulation engine developed for use with the RP Society 8.

    1. CHARACTER CREATION

    [VITALITY]
    PVP-RP uses a location-specific damage system. The general categories are as follows:
    -Head
    -Neck
    -Torso
    -Back
    -Left Shoulder
    -Right Shoulder
    -Left Elbow
    -Right Elbow
    -Left Arm
    -Right Arm
    -Left Hand
    -Right Hand
    -Waist
    -Left Thigh
    -Right Thigh
    -Left Knee
    -Right Knee
    -Left Leg
    -Right Leg
    -Left Ankle
    -Right Ankle
    -Left Foot
    -Right Foot

    A regular human would have 100DP for all categories. Adjust these values as necessary. Armor can also be equipped, and would look like this:

    Head: 100/120 (Flesh/Metal)
    This would mean that the head has 100DP, and the head armor which is made of metal has 120DP.

    Armor can either be independent of each other, or ejected as a set. Armor types used should be defined in the [NOTES] block of the sheet.

    [MOVEMENT]
    PVP-RP uses a 3-D grid for event staging. The following variables should be present:
    -MP: The amount of energy available for movement. Is fully replenished after each round.
    -MP Max: The maximum amount of MP available; usually only after all extra equipment is removed. The related command in the Command List will specify how much is gained after dropping the equipment.

    Terrain Rating: Defined as letters A-F, as well as Null (-). A gives +0.5MP/Tile, B gives 0.2, C removes 0.1, D removes 0.2, E removes 0.5, F is not traversible, and - has no effect.
    -Concrete: Standard urban material. high durability.
    -Earth: Soil, clay and other semi-loose terrain. Medium durability, and stops kinetic motion moderately.
    -Sand: Loose gravel is included in this. Low durability, but high kinetic arresting quality.
    -Void: Empty space. Can be moved through.
    -Water: Water stops energy weapons with a large burst of steam, and significantly reduces the effectiveness of ballistics. can be traveled through.
    -Swamp: Ankle deep, muddy ground. slows down most types of units.
    NOTE: Regardless of terrain rating, each tile requires 1MP to move off. Terrain ratings only modify the cost of moving off the tile.

    Some units can have special abilities like hovering, rendering all terrain ratings null.

    -Climb Cost: The amount of MP required to climb up one level. Does not necessarily need a wall.
    -Climb Max: The maximum amount of tile a unit can go up vertically.
    Some skills like wall-jumping and climbing spikes require walls to go beyond the Climb Max, while equipment like thrusters do not require walls.

    -Jump Cost: The amount of MP required to jump across a 1-tile gap.
    -Jump Max: The maximum amount of tiles a unit can jump across.

    [STATUS]
    This is where extra variables are defined that do not fit in either Vitality or Movement. There are some necessary ones, though:
    -Field of View (FOV): How far the unit can see, in a fan-pattern. Applies to forward vision only, and cannot see if FOV is blocked by a block taller than 0.5.
    -Blindspot: How far the unit can see to the left, right and rear.
    NOTE: FOV and Blindspot are used for counter-commands during the enemy turn. If the agressor is outside of either range, then the unit will not be able to counter-command. After an attack, the unit can choose to face the attacker or not.
    -Critical: This is where you define the critical hit areas. If the part is destroyed, then the condition described will come into effect.
    -Inventory: All useable items (including weapons) are to be listed here, along with the quantity.
    -Stamina: Can be used for almost any unit. It can act as blood for organics, energy for machines, and fuel for vehicles.

    [COMMAND LIST]
    Commands can be defined by 2 major categories:
    -Active: These commands must be activated during a unit's phase.
    -Passive: These commands are activated when certain conditions are met.

    Commands can be further defined by order:
    -Primary: The majority of commands. take up the entire phase to execute.
    -Secondary: A command that may be executed in addition to a primary (only one may be used), or on it's own (up to 3 may be used).
    -Tertiary: A command that has no limit on how many may be executed at the same time.
    NOTE: If a Secondary command is to be executed with a primary command, the Secondary must be executed first.

    Commands in the Command List must have the following parameters:
    -Name: The name of the command.
    -Type: The type of command. An example would be Active Primary or Passive Tertiary.
    -Range: The range of the command, in tiles. Other options are self, -, team and all.
    NOTE: Range cannot be counted diagonally (ex. a range of 1-1 is only to the N,E,S and W of the unit, a 1-2 makes the shape expand by 1 tile in every direction).
    -Cost: The cost to execute the command. Can use any variable in [MOVEMENT] and [STATUS], but not [VITALITY].
    -Condition: Any conditions that must be met in order to use the command.
    -Effect: The effect on the target(s) selected. Weapons normally reduce a value in the [VITALITY] block, but can also cause status ailments like EMP, Shock/Daze or Bleeding Out.
    -Accuracy: Determines whether the command is executed sucessfuly or not. Refer to the Die Chart below. Burst can be used to describe simultaneous hits, while combo can refer to sucessive hits.
    -Descripton: Describes the command and its effects. If the command causes a status ailment, the effect of it must be described here also.

    Available Rolls:
    d2: 2-sided coin.
    d4: 4-sided die.
    d6: 6-sided die.
    d8: 8-sided die.
    d10: 10-sided die.
    d12: 12-sided die.
    d20: 20-sided die.
    xdy: Roll x amount of y-sided dice.
    -: No accuracy (100%)

    Available Roll Modifiers:
    r=x: The number rolled is the number chosen.
    r>x: The number rolled is greater than x.
    r<x: The number rolled is less than x.
    r>x<y: The number rolled is between x and y inclusive.
    r=ODD: The number rolled is odd.
    r=EVEN: The number rolled is even.
    r=x,y...n: the number rolled is either x,y...or n.
    r/x: The number rolled out of x are sucessful; normally used for machineguns and shotguns.

    [NOTES]
    This is where extra variables and values are defined. Also, a brif history or description of the unit can also be added here.

    2.HOW TO PLAY
    PVP-RP can be divided into turns (team 1 against team 2), moves (each unit's turn), and phases.
    Movement Phase: The first phase which you use to position your unit.
    Command Phase: Commands are executed in this phase.
    Escape Phase: If any MP is left over from the movement phase, it can be spent here, as well as choosing which direction to face.
    NOTE:All status afflictions and variable changes resulting from them are taken into account during the beginning of the turn.

    If I had the time to write that up in VB or something, I'd do it, but I don't. Go figure.

    And to clarify: In almost all cases, passive commands are tertiary; if it were primary, then you would only be able to counter once during the waiting phase. And, is the barrier location-specific, or a bubble shield? If it is a bubble shield, something like "barrier is an armor set" should be present in the [NOTES] tab.

    Extreme boredom dictates that if you want, I could whip up one for your characters; just make a post saying so, and I'll edit it to turn it into a character sheet for PVP-RP. Of course, the sheer wall of text probably turns most people off...
