Here’s an easy to do change to melee that allows for Heroic Combats. You know, the kind of fights where the good guy and the bad guy square off, back and forth, sword fighting for a long time. Well, here it is.
This is a step beyond the new melee combat in Warrior Heroes – Legends and not for everyone. Use it as you like, I am definitely using it!
Recover From Knock Down Test
Modify the Recover From Knocked Down Test as follow:
· Pass 2d6 – Loser moves back 2”, winner remains in contact. Next round of melee the winner receives a +1d6 melee bonus.
· Pass 1d6 – Loser is knocked to the ground. May not regain feet until has remained prone for one full turn of activation.
· Pass 0d6 – Loser is Out of the Fight.
