Hello,

I’m not sure there’s an evi­dently bet­ter way –or a more obscure one– to play around the dam­age loca­tion in blade, but despite a bit of expe­ri­ence with it (not 100% tho) it still plays a lit­tle slug­gish skim­ing through all those pages. Per­haps there’s an offi­cial or uno­fi­cial visual aid that greatly improves it?

Any­way, i’ve made a (very bad) sketch of what Imho I think would make for a greater increase in com­bat res­o­lu­tion:

pos​timg​.org/​i​m​a​g​e​/​s​h​1​x​t​r​s​j​j​/

Since there’s a lot of rep­e­ti­tion in loca­tions I don’t see any loss in just list­ing them all at once and list the loca­tions next to the zones. Maybe its pos­si­ble to fit all in one page so you only have like 5 pages (cleave, pierce, swung pierce, s. bash t.bash) instead of 32 pages. Only thing miss­ing would be the descrip­tions, but alas.

Any thoughts? is there a flaw i’m not see­ing it?

Would a more pro­e­fi­cient soul be inter­ested in cre­at­ing it it in a bet­ter form?

Thanks!

I started some­thing sim­i­lar.
Posted a demo ver­sion to the forum.

Hi Alan thanks for answer­ing.

Yes, I did check that and its a big help, but I was think­ing of some­thing even more stream­lined and that I could print and lay aroubnd the table with­out clut­ter­ing things.

For exam­ple, there’s no need hav­ing 32 pages telling most of the same thing.

The swing areas are used by all cleaves and all swinged blunts and swinged pierces and the thrusts areas are used by all pro­jec­tiles and pierc­ings and blunts. By hav­ing the sub-​areas informed you can roll it before you even roll you pool.

I picutre this:
1) look at pic­ture of bar­bar­ian with zones and sub­zones all in one. decide my action and dice and then roll for sub-​area (which already helps pic­tur­ing the attac)
2) with the knowl­edge of sub-​area and with a suc­ces­full roll, I go to one of five tables –instead of 32– and look directly at the loca­tion and level of dam­age. Since all the loca­tions are at the same place ever and lets say it start from lower to higher loca­tions, I can train to look it up pretty fast
3) profit

heck, I think you can even cram all the 23 descrip­tions there in one A4

Cur­rently we have all the pages lay­ing around and end up scream­ing all the time “WHERES THE CLEAVE TABLE 10???”, even with color codes to help it, but there’sa just so many stuff to keep track that its still hell.

2 pic­tures and 5 pages. This seem infi­nitely incom­men­su­rably bet­ter than skim­ming through dozens of pages. Am I miss­ing some­thing?

I guess i’ll make it and post it here

That sounds great.
I am all for less clut­ter and more speed.

I’m not sure if this is any­where help­ful, though since the pic­ture thing does not seem to have fully evolved, I thought I’d share my dam­age table.
This is an excel file (made by my sis­ter), that has 5 reg­is­ter cards (Cleav­ing, Pierc­ing, Blunt, Swung Pierc­ing, Generic) and all the respec­tive tables. No descrip­tions, but I think that is only a minor lack :)

I found it quite help­ful so far as it speeds up the process of look­ing the con­se­quences of wounds up.
How­ever it may not be help­ful for every­one.

Still, if you like, have a look.

My player Aaron had worked up a sim­i­lar one. He showed me last week, shall see how far he has got.

I had posted an excel spread­sheet with drop-​downs; you only needed to select a dam­age type, would level, and loca­tion, and the dam­age info pop­u­lated. It evolved into a more robust project that is nearly fin­ished. I’ll post it when it’s done.

Thanks for mind­ing this thread peo­ple.

Sorry Barkas, indeed it has not evolved because 1) gladly you bet­ter capa­ble peo­ple have taken up to the task :D and 2) i’m in vaca­tions and its really hard to con­cen­trate with all the biki­nis around :woohoo:

Half-​jokes aside, I dont have my work rig with me and the con­nec­tion is awful :(

I’m happy that there’s some­thing brew­ing out there, lets see what we all come up!
