RPGS Initiative concept

Initiative Order

Player and GM place their characters and monsters in the initiative queue wherever they desire with the lowest AGI+(speed?still deciding) score placing first, and the highest score placing last.

Sven AGI+SPD: 7
Ollie AGI+SPD: 5
Hjonmir AGI+SPD: 8
Goblins AGI+SPD: 4
  • Goblins have the lowest score so they place themselves in queue first

  • Ollie places himself next, being a ranged attacker, he wants to go before the goblins

  • Sven is a melee attacker and also wants to go before the goblins but wants to go after Ollie to give him a chance to clear some from range

  • Hjonmir is a caster and decides to go last to either mop up what’s left of the goblins or to heal his friends.  He places himself at the end of the queue.

  • Ollie will lead off each turn followed by Sven, then the goblins and Hjonmir will act last.

Any time during combat, a participant can remove themselves from the initiative queue.  While outside of the queue, the only actions available are move and defend.  At the beginning of any turn, a participant can place themselves back in the queue at any position.
