Exploding Dice Are the BOMB!
« on: February 28, 2019, 11:32:43 PM »
I was just play-testing Savage Worlds Adventure Edition in Fantasy Grounds and had a hit with a PC's long sword that aced (an ace is a max die roll, which then allows you to re-roll and add that on... Aces accumulate and can go on forever) three times in a row. By the time he was done with his nasty hit, he had done 34 points, which raised five times above the enemies toughness. Suffice it to say, the bad guy had a bad day as he literally exploded from the massive hit!

Shadowrun was the first game I played with Exploding Dice.  It was cool, except a success was a success.  No bonus points.

Fallen Heroes was the first game I played where Exploding Dice could lead to bonus successes.  It was awesome!

Fallen Heroes has been the most exciting and enjoyable (at the same time) RPG I've ever played. Bravo, Viking.
Let's see how SWADE does. :)
