Actioncore Action Core
Basic Challenges
Extra Effort
Once you’ve got the characters together, you’ve got your actors. But without conflict, you don’t yet have a story. The Action Modules of d20 Advanced details all the rules you need to create action-packed adventures. It includes the basic and the advanced rules for combat and how to use environmental challenges to confound the characters, as well as systems for adjudicating other dramatic scenes, from car chases to interrogation to social duels.

The Action Core provides the absolute basics for how challenges are resolved in d20 Advanced. With this Core and some creativity, you can create and resolve almost any challenge you can imagine. The Basic Combat Module in particular is useful to any game in which battles will be an important feature, with the Maneuvers Module and the Environment Module serving to add extra options for battle. The Dramatic Interactions Module can help to resolve more detailed and important non-combat challenges.
