BASH is played with two
ordinary six-sided dice. Each character is represtented by three stats
rated from 1-5- Brawn, Agility, and Mind.
When you attempt to do
something, you roll the dice (two standard six-siders), and multiply
the relevant stat by the dice roll. If you roll doubles, the dice
explode, meaning you get to roll another die and add the result before
There are over 50
super-powers in the system to choose from. Powers, like Stats, are
rated 1-5, making character creation a snap.
The powers list is very
complete, but totally adaptable. Instead of having seperate listings
for ice breath, heat rays, and all other concievable attacks, all those
fall under the "special attack" power description. With this system,
you get to design your own power-- you pick the damage, range, area of
affect yourself, and pay for it with points. Hold on, put the
calculator away. A standard hero in this system only spends 9 points on
powers. Thats right, 9, not 250. So you can design a character quickly
and easily. In BASH, you'll spend less time making a hero, and more
time being a hero!
