I’ll post the rat pack vs the lawyer later – seems you will still be able to get some advice in James Herbert land though.
However, thought this is an interesting scenario – given anyone can hit in FASERIP, and this is just vanilla toe-to-toe, although have now added basic stuns in. Should also perhaps add that a slammed opponent misses a turn, and check that all this works. Added kills as well, so got worse for our rat friend vs the cat, would only prevail in a couple in a thousand.
Have not added in karma yet either, which should help those with more – Shang has enough to change one hit to a miss, anyway.
In my basic spreadsheet of stats had one that is all Typical. Which means a normal human with some training in Fighting, so could call them them a boxer, or something similar. Not programmed in any Talents as yet – martial arts will be first. In the above, Shang would get a column shift to hit and the ability to try for 3 multi-attacks and an initiative bonus. The framework does individual initiative, so that one won’t matter as much – would have to add in a ‘set all initiatives to first roll’ addition later to do group initiative.
Battles: 1000; Sum of rounds: 5980; martialarts: 0.59 ± 0.02; boxer: 0.41 ± 0.02;
Things are tough in ratland when you add in a cat’s killing ability. Maybe we should go James Herbert next and have a rat pack versus a person as a test. Not that those are giant mutant killer rats. Although possible good superhuman testing ground?
I have started adapting this to work with FASERIP. Obviously the mechanics are different, but the basic framework is there, which is why I wanted to use it – all the hard work with creatures, encounters, arenas, running many simulations and tallying them just needs different characteristics and algorithms inserted.
Very much a work in progress, this is like version 0.01.
