You are about to add one of the most useful GameMaster (GM) tools ever devised to your arsenal. Your players will soon quake with fear when they learn you are now able to resolve combat quicker and more efficiently than ever. With less table flipping and rule consulting, you will find your new HackMaster® Combat Wheel™ conflict resolution device allows you to deal out more hurt on your players. With less time spent computing base severity levels and to-hits, you can now concentrate on the important things — kicking player character ass.

Side 1 of the Combat Wheel game tool has several useful features. On the outer edge of the circles on side 1, is a box marked “Initiative Notes”. At the beginning of each battle, you can use a pencil to mark the initiative value for each character or for just the creatures under your control. To the right of the Fatigue box is an area that provides data for weapon type vs. armor to-hit modifiers. By turning the wheel, the applicable to-hit modifiers for each weapon type are then shown in the three windows below the particular armor type window.

The series of boxes on the outer rim located to the right of the weapon type to-hit modifiers are intended for you to record the armor class associated with a specific creature. Record the name of the defender (whether it is a player character or a monster) in the box next to its armor class number. Likewise, you should record the name of the attacking character or creature in the box on the inner circle next to the letter code that represents that creature’s character class and level or hit dice in the case of monsters.

In order to determine the number required for a character to hit a particular armor class, rotate that character’s name on the inner circle to the armor class he is attempting to hit on the outer circle. Once the character and the target armor class are aligned, read the number inside the “To-Hit” window. This is the number that the PC or monster needs to roll on a d20. The window directly below the “To-hit” window indicates the number required to hit a character’s particular type of shield - if he is using one.

The final feature on this side of the Combat Wheel is the Critical Hit Base Severity Level box, marked “Base Severity Level”. When someone scores a critical hit, you can determine the base severity level by following the steps outlined in the Base Severity Level box.

Side 2 of the Combat Wheel game tool also contains data for saving throws for both items and creatures. In order to find the required saving throw number, rotate the wheel until the appropriate character class for the person making the saving throw and the applicable hazard requiring the saving throw are shown in the outermost window. The data for item saving throws can be retrieved in a similar manner.

 

This 10-page PDF includes each full color component, as well as detailed instructions on how to construct and use your own HackMaster Combat Wheel to deadly effect. Just print, assemble and terrify your players with your new acumen!

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
