Review: OneDice Supers
OneDice Supers is a brand new addition to Cakebread and Walton's OneDice System and is written by Talon Waite and Peter Cakebread.
Everything needed to play is in this product.
The system is very straight forward: Roll a single D6 and add the appropriate Ability (Strong, Clever, Quick, Power) and an appropriate Skill (from a good size, but not overlong list) and any Gifts (a robust selection of powers) against a Difficulty set by the Gamekeeper or an opposed roll. That's the system in a nutshell.
There also Flaws, Embellishments (think perks) and Covers (a template which is, essentially, a profession you spend half of your skill points on).
I found character creation took less than twenty minutes for a superhero game. And play was smooth and quick.
One very intriguing facet is what OneDice calls Skins, in this case three, which fill in the details of a setting and have rules that alter the rules to one degree or another.
I really can't recommend OneDice Supers enough.
