Think I’ve finally come up with a game idea…sort of a cross between ‘DnD’ and ‘Jumanji’ meet in School.
Creating the basic character sheet is easy enough. What I’m looking for is a way to transform the player’s ‘before’ activities into a character modifier.
For instances…did they play football? How would that affect the player’s stats (STR+2, DEX+1, WIS-1, etc.).
This won’t be unlimited, mostly to about 4-6 sports and 3-5 academic styles to choose from. Also trying to give a ‘weight’ to each so out of a pool of points a player might possible be able to select one or two from each category, maybe even double them…so say…Football+Wrestling or Gymnastics+2xSwimming; or where one has big negatives…Super-Nerd + Stoner (Should be interesting to say the least).
Almost as difficult as the modifier stats is Weighting; because I had a friend in high school who was not only a decent gymnast and swimmer in school, Karate after; and went to (community) college…getting both his 2-year degree and HS diploma the same time.
Tried seeking google’s advice…2+million hits…and it’s either about athletic checks in RPGs or stats in sports games.
Anyone out there delved into this or know of a resource?
