0 size character melee skill

Recommended Posts

It works just like it works for Silhouette 1 characters. So, yes, a Silhouette 0 character can use Melee (Heavy) and Melee (Light). The only difference is that the Silhouette 0 character gets a bonus to hit a Silhouette 3 character (but not 2), and a Silhouette 3+ character gets a penalty to hit a Silhouette 0 character.

Almost. The difficulty modification takes place at ±2 silhouette difference. So a silhouette 0 creature reduces the difficulty once to attack a silhouette 2 or larger target.

Thanks you guys !

Last question. A 0 size character can use greataxe or greatsword ? Or a long Sword become heavy melee for him ?

Unless their species entry says otherwise, the are no special rules for being silhouette zero.

Hi ! 

How work melee skill with 0 size character (halflin, hobbit, gnome, goblin...)

They use melee light at all ?

If your Silhouette 0 races get too small.... I found the following on this forum somewhere. Its for races that are about 6" tall, maybe up to a foot or so (GMs discretion).

Tiny: Fairies are Silhouette 0 and have an Encumbrance 1, not 5. They treat all objects and all non-fairy races taller then 1 foot as being 1 Silhouette higher.  They add 5 Encumbrance to items not of Fairy Craftsmanship.  They treat all normal sized Melee (Light) (1-handed) weapons as Heavy (2-handed) weapons. They cannot use normal sized Heavy Melee Weapons or normal-sized Ranged weapons. They increase defense granted by cover and normal-sized items by 1. They add [bo][bo] to all Stealth checks.
