First off, I’ve been a lurker here for a short while and am a huge fan of the things the Gauntlet community do; in particular, I’m very interested in Trophy RPG.
I have a few questions about Trophy and I apologise in advance if these have already been asked –– I did my best to search for the answers myself (both here on the forum and via Google / Reddit) but haven’t been able to find anything.
In terms of mechanics, I’d like to know: when rolling a dark die and a light die, where they both roll the same result (e.g. 4) what happens in terms of resolution? Does the person re-roll or does one die take precedence over the other?
Regarding design: I am thinking of possibly creating some Trophy resources and wondered what fonts are used in the Trophy Dark, Loom and Gold books? (I checked the SRD and Design documents as well as the books themselves but I couldn’t find any reference to fonts used).
Finally, I’m trying to set out (in a way that makes sense in my mind) how the flow of gameplay works, and have written down a few steps –– am I on the right track here? (I’ve watched a few gameplay videos on YouTube from the community to help me get a sense of how the game operates).
I’ll replicate in text form, too, just in case the image above doesn’t work:
- Create character;
- Embark on incursion
- Explore the world (triggering a Hunt Roll or Risk Roll, if the action is perilous?)
- Possibility for a Combat or Risk Roll arising from the Hunt Roll
- Resolve the rolls (updating tokens and ruin as necessary)
- Complete Set goal (progress to next Set)
- Repeat 3. - 6. for each Set
- Conclusion / Epilogue
Thanks for reading / any help with these questions!
