Playing the GLOG with The Landshut rules: RE-REDUX

1. Stats
Roll the usual six stats, STR, DEX, CON, INT, WIS, CHA, and only write extremely low (6 or lower) and extremely high (16+) on your sheet. Don’t use numbers, but words: extremely low STR might be “weak”, extremely high STR could be “really strong”, for instance.

2. Pick any GLOG Template
Translate the bonuses into words: “MOVE +3” might become “moves fast”. Translate the feeling, not the numbers.

3. Abilities
Same as above: translate the abilities into words someone with zero knowledge of roleplaying games can understand.

3. Race
Pick or roll one.

4. Attack and all other rolls
When a character is doing something which he is fully capable of doing, it succeeds, no roll needed.
If risk or chance is involved and chances are less obvious, use opposed d20 rolls; roll with Advantage for characters with clearly superior combat skills.
OR roll a d20 without any modifier and use this table for a more narrative approach (yanked from Salvage Union).

5. Gear
Pick 2d6 pieces of gear, write them down, then lose 1d6 of them.

6. Hits
Start with 3 hits. Every +3hp in the GLOG template is one additional hit.


Example character:

Jimmy Hawkes, Roller Knight (written by Lucas here)

no remarkable stats
4 hits

Abilities (1st tier)
