The L5R RPG forum is gone

Recommended Posts

Everything explodes by default, unless specific rule about specific roll forbids it. So, yes, Initiative and Damage Rolls explode due to this general rule, and because there is no specific rule forbiding them to do so.

Remember that untrained rolls do not explode. If you were to roll Jiujutsu/Agility, but you don't have any ranks in the skill, your 10s will not explode and you cannot Raise or benefit from Free Raises. You can spend a Void Point to temporarily have the skill for one roll, for which you can gain all the benefits of being trained, including exploding dice. ;)

 I thought that they annouced that RPG forum will never resurface and that all of the material there is gone forever RIP.

 

Where's this announcement? I can't find it.

They didn't, He was just saying that the title was a bit misleading.

From the limited time I've been playing the RPG i understand there are advantages like: Sage,  Soul of Artistry and Crab Hands, which unless i remember wrong say more or less whenever you make an unskilled check your considered rank 1 in that skill,though they don't cover everything. Sage i think covers lore checks, soul covers artisan  skills and crab hands covers weapons. Sorry for rambling but with these advantages would my tens still  explode within the areas covered by them?

Yes, having the advantage means your rolls in that category count as skilled instead of unskilled, i.e. your tens explode normally.
