Ten Dead Rats is a mashup of OD&D and Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay by Paul Siegel (which can be found here). This is my house rules for Ten Dead Rats.
CHARACTER GENERATION Characteristics Roll 3d6, you may re-roll one (1) of these dice - however if you do, you must keep the new roll even if lower than original roll. Assign the rolls in order for: Strength (S), Toughness (T), Agility (Ag), Intelligence (I), Will Power (WP), and Fellowship (Fel). Find your stat bonus based on your score: 3-5 : -2 6-8 : -1 9-12 : 0 13-15 : +1 16-18 : +2 19-21 : +3 22+ : +4 Movement is a single digit value representing tens of feet per round, the standard for humans being 4 (40' per round). Weapon Skill (WS), Ballistic Skill (BS), and Wound ( W ) are dictated by your class (see below). Languages Everyone speaks Reikspiel (the common tongue). Your Intelligence Bonus (IB) dictates the number of additional languages you can speak. Of your IB is -1, you speak only broken Reikspiel with a limited vocabulary. If your IB is -2, you speech is very simple and fragmented. Tests Characteristic tests are performed by rolling d20, adding the appropriate characteristic bonus. A result equal or over the Target Number (TN) based on the difficulty indicates success. Contested Rolls are made by both parties rolling a d20, adding the appropriate characteristic bonus, and the higher total winning. The GM will adjudicate the meaning of any ties. Target Numbers Difficulty : TN Moderate : 10 Challenging : 15 Onerous : 20 Saving Throws Saving Throws are identical to characteristic tests, except the play also adds their level to the roll. Use the following examples to determine what characteristic to use: SB: Save vs : Paralysis, polymorph, entanglement, etc. TB: Save vs : Poison, intoxication, disease, drowning, etc. AgB: Save vs : Falling, getting knocked over, maintaining balance, etc. IB: Save vs : Illusions WPB: Save vs : Fear, terror, magical effects, etc. FB: Save vs : Mind control, hypnosis, snake oil salesman, etc. Ones & Twenties For all Tests, and Saves, a natural 1 on the die will always fail, and a natural 20 will always succeed. Fate Points Fate points represent the favor of the gods, or, more likely, the unwillingness of the gods to let you die until you have suffered further for their entertainment. Expenditure of Fate Points allows a player character to avoid otherwise inevitable death or a horrific critical injury. What happens instead of death or maiming is entirely up to the GM, although the words 'frying pan' and 'fire' should be meditated upon. All characters being with 2 Fate Points. Once spent, Fate Points can never be regained. The GM may decide to award Fate Points for spectacular heroic endeavors. LEVEL Players gain levels through earning XP (experience points). Small But Vicious Dog only covered up to level 3. Here we include up to level 10, though we suspect few will survive beyond level 5. XP is awarded for gaining treasure, typically 1 XP per gold crown. What counts as treasure? Simply ask your self, "would a pirate bury it?" GMs may also ask players and/or the party as a whole to invent ambitions or goals, and award XP bonuses for achieving them. Ambition Expected Duration Example Bonus XP Personal 2 to 3 sessions Purchase a firearm, make contact with thieves' guild, etc. 25 Party 6 to 12 sessions Travel from Altdorf to Kislev, find proof of Skaven, etc. 100 RACE Players may choose their race from the list below, or roll randomly and gain 30 XP. Each race also modifies ability scores as indicated.

Or roll three times and pick your favorite and get 10 XP. Or just pick you favorite and gain no XP. Roll (d20) 1 : Apothecary (Academic) 11 : Beggar (Rogue) 2 : Barber-Surgeon (Academic) 12 : Charlatan (Rogue) 3 : Engineer (Academic) 13 : Entertainer (Rogue) 4 : Wizard's Apprentice (Academic) 14 : Grave Robber (Rogue) 5 : Zealot (Academic) 15 : Smuggler (Rogue) 6 : Boatman (Ranger) 16 : Mercenary (Warrior) 7 : Bounty Hunter (Ranger) 17 : Pit Fighter (Warrior) 8 : Coachman (Ranger) 18 : Protagonist (Warrior) 9 : Rat Catcher (Ranger) 19 : Sailor (Warrior) 10 : Road Warden (Ranger) 20 : Solder (Warrior) TALENTS Each Career has access to a list of Talents. Players can select 3 Talents at first level, then they gain 1 Talent each time they gain a level. Most Talents can only be taken once unless otherwise noted. GM may at their discretion all access to Talents outside a player's Career based on the state of the campaign. Some Talents have names prefixed with "Skill", all of which is covered by the "Skill: X" Talent. Generally all "skills" are performed via characteristic tests, and any skill can be attempted by any character. The "Skill" Talent simply grants a bonus to such attempts. Activities gained by non-skill Talents (eg. Read/Write, Swim) cannot be attempted without the talent. Talents By Career Apothecary Talents . Coolheaded . Read/Write . Skill: Gossip . Suave . Hardy .

The group with the higher value goes first, starting with either the GM or the player immediately to the DM's left or right, then proceeding around the table. Combat resolution uses Target 20 as OED. A hit is calculated as: d20 + Attacker's WS (or BS) + Target's AC >= 20 Natural 1's and 20's are automatic misses or hits with no additional effect, unless otherwise noted (eg. Black Powder Weapons have special rules for natural 1's). Critical Injuries Upon reaching 0 wounds a character suffers a critical injury. To determine the effect, roll for the location and severity of the injury. Any further damage will immediately kill the character. Healing that restores a die of wounds may instead remove a critical injury. Lost limbs cannot be restored. Roll (d100) . Location 01-02 . Foot 03-07 . Shin 08-10 . Knee 11-20 . Thigh 21-22 .

Instant death MAGICK Standard OD&D spell lists can be used, though we recommend instead using the Book of Spells by Dan Collins. Unlike D&D, spells are not memorized, but rather rolled for as in Warhammer FRPG. Each spell caster has a number of six-sided magic gidce and may choose to roll any number of them each time they cast a spell. The target number (TN) of any spell is based on the level of the spell. If the total rolled is equal to or more than the spell's target number the spell is cast successfully. If the roll is failed, the spell simply does not manifest. If a single die is used and a 1 is rolled, or if multiple of the same number are rolled (doubles, triples. etc.) the caster suffers a mishap. The details of any specific mishap are up to the GM to interpret with the following guidelines: . Minor Mishap (doubles, or 1 on single d6) - Caster glows with eldritch light for d10 rounds. Milk curdles. etc. . Major Mishap (triples) - Caster gains visible infernal mark lasteing 24 hours. Stunned for 1 round, minor demon appears, suffers magical burnout, etc. . Critical Mishap (quads) - Caster falls unconscious for d10 minutes, d6 dameons appear, caster takes random critical hit, etc. Note that is possible to roll a mishap and for the spell to still succeed. In this case resolve the mishap first, and then the effect of the spell. PSYCHOLOGY Fear When faced with something that causes Fear, characters must make a WP saving throw. Characters who fail this save will refuse to move towards or attack the fear causing object unless and until it attaks them. They also suffer a -1 penalty to all attack rolls, saving throws and characteristic tests for 3d4 rounds. Characters who succeed at this save suffer no ill effects. Terror When faced with something that causes Terr, characters must make a WP saving throw. Characters who fail this save immediately curl up into an unmoving ball. or may display other undesirable behavior as dictated by the GM. Regardless of success the character is affected as if they failed a Fear save (see above). CORRUPTION When a player comes into contact with something imbued with Chaos (warpstone, mutants, demons, etc)they may become corrupted. When this happens, the GM will ask the player to record a number of Corruption Points on their character sheet. The GM may decide to allow a WP Test to avoid the corruption, or to reduce the amount (for example from d3 Corruption Points to just 1). When a player reaches 5 or more corruption points, they must make a WP Test with a Target Number of 10 plus total corruption points. If they fail. remove 5 Corruption Points from their total and assign them a mutation.
