Weapons and Armor

HAT, or HP - AC - TWENTY SIDED, is a roleplaying game that shares three basic concepts with D&D but diverges from there. The three concepts kept from D&D are obvious from the title: HP, AC, and the D20 roll. However, each is expanded in scope.

This page explains a system for weapons and armor in HAT. Its only one of a few, but it is the default one unless you select an alternate.

Using Rules

Getting hit with a weapon is brutal, and we count it like its a second attack that can only be paid for with HP. If the initial attack lands (positive outcome, not Discounted or Evaded) roll a die and add the damage modifier below. Count those Outcome levels as ADDITIONAL injury from the strike.

Having armor on helps SOMEWHAT. If you have armor, you pay 1 AC to activate when hit and reduce the Outcome of the attack by the listed amount. If there are two numbers listed, you pay 1 HP to activate the second in addition to the first. If the ENC is above your STR bonus, pay an additional 1 AC if you activate the armor in a round.
