View Full Version : [7e] Rolling for Initiative

The ruleset defaults to the "initiative according to Dex" rule, but I don't see any way to implement the "rolling for initiative" option rule in the rulebook.
This is one area where automating the rolls would do wonders for speeding up gameplay, as comparing everyone's DEX rolls and putting them on the combat tracker in order of success level takes a bit of time, but could be done automatically quite quickly.

I checked the options but could not find any toggle to use the optional rule. Am I missing it? Or is it not supported by the ruleset?

Sounds like an excellent idea for a ruleset upgrade, though... I hear you've been looking for another project?

Excellent idea!
I also found the same problem on the combat tracker, which also does not take into account the combat ability to establish order.
