"Dress to impress. Nat 20's help too"

There are many moments of awesomeness that can be found in most games, through clever thinking, excellent role playing, and other means. Sometimes this is acknowledged with a passing comment of how lucky the player is.

But sometimes, the player pulls off something that's just so off the wall awesome, they can't help but be very impressed. Tell a story of a time where you or a player character put the rule of cool in full swing and genuinely impressed someone or everyone at the table

Luke's using so many dice, it's like this webcomic is based on the Dragon Ball Z RPG!

Actually, the DBZ RPG was made using BESM rules, so barring extreme circumstances, you'd only ever have to roll 3d6. I know, I've played it.

Never got around to trying that system. So does it use 3d6 for everything, including damage?

As a point of reference, I am familiar with another 3d6 system (GURPS), but damage (especially if you wanted DBZ style of combat) would likely involve rolling quite a few dice.

Forgot to mention - Otaku, the 3D6 is used for skill rolls, including combat. Damage, however, is static - your "Super Dragon Hyper Beam" might do 75 damage, while your "Rapid Chop" might do 30, but have the Autofire bonus.

Thanks, Valandar, that is just what I was wondering. As you can guess even if you've never heard of GURPS by what I've already said, GURPS has variable damage, at least where appropriate. If you want combat to involve static damage amounts, you may do that instead or as well.

I'm actually looking to get into GURPS as a system. It seems more the kind of thing I'd be into as opposed to the mechanics-heavy D&D 4e which is what I started with.

I have a digital copy of GURPS Lite which is the free version of 4th edition, would you know anyone running a campaign (online) I could use the info in that to get into the game?

Short Answer: Check out forums.sjgames.com. It doesn't have some nifty tool to locate campaigns, but one of the subforums is dedicated to it, plus you can ask around the GURPS section of the board for more specifics about the system, running and/or locating a game for GURPS.

I actually like GURPS for its heavy dose of "crunch"... but how it is almost all optional. You can not only play in but run campaigns from just GURPS Lite, and it'll essentially be compatible with one built using the full Basic Set and supplements. All the crunch is there in case you want and need it, but even if you owned every supplement, the system is designed so you can focus more on telling the story, and rolling dice when needed, without getting bogged down in the intricacies of combat, resource management, etc.

The original DBZ game wasn't BESM, it was Fuzion - and some attacks called on you to roll literally THOUSANDS of D6's. The BESM DBZ you're familiar with was the second one written in English.

Huh, didn't know that. Frankly even without playing it I'm gonna call the BESM version better just because of simpler mechanics.

for me it reminds of weregeek where to cast some sort of super techno-spell in game they make a joke about needed a 'metric cube of dice'

<seriously though they show him with a double-armlod of dice that looks like a small skyscraper.> (near the end of the Shadowrun storyline in chapter.. 19)
