ABS12: Action Speed

All the changes from this page will be added to the complete master game page at A Basic System 12 (ABS12).

Looking at a few different variable systems, I think I want to try something relatively simple. By using Speed/5 I am guessing that the normal range will end up.

With EL = 1 to 12 and bonuses equaling 1 to 3 so far ( with some plans to maybe go to 6 or 7

Speed 1 to 5 = 1 action
Speed 6 to 10 = 2 actions
Speed 11 to 15 = 3 actions
Speed 16 to 20 == 4 actions

Speed is the speed of a character used for initiative, action speed, and movement which if no bonus is shown then there is no bonus. Receiving a speed bonus from special verb actions depends on the situation. If a character has fly 3, then the 3 speed for flying only applies if they are flying.

Speed = 1 + EL + speed bonus for description + speed bonus for special verb actions if the situation fits the bonus.

Action Speed
Action Speed is based on the characters speed for that EL. It represents how fast that they act and how many times. It is the number of actions the character can do
Action Speed = Speed/5 rounded up

I'll work on distance another day.

None of the creatures in the system have had their speeds changed to reflect these changes. I'll have to spend time to change them in the future.
