      The Anaxes Swarm System

      The Anaxes Swarm System is a roll system most often utilized for large scale combat situations, such as battlefields, or for situations where a few stand against many, such as a trio of Jedi ambushing a large group of gangsters. While not necessarily a mechanically perfect representation of the scope of your character’s abilities, it is used to streamline large or chaotic battles where more intimate roll systems would bog down the mission and make less fun for more people. However, it is ultimately up to the Dungeon Master (DM) to determine what does and does not count as a situation where the Swarm System is applied on their missions. They may also choose to add other buffs, debuffs, or situations which may require rolls beyond these, which will be explained by the DM in the moment.

      General Disclaimer: All rolls are d20 based for mission actions, story rolls, or dueling. The Dungeon Master (DM) may specify rolls are needed for a specific action during the course of a mission, and rolls are typically required during combat.

      Baseline Beginning Stats by Rank:
      Note: FP/TP does not reset during missions except with extenuating circumstances and at DM discretion.

      Jedi Rank Military Rank Hit Points (HP) Force Points (FP)
      Initiate Private 3 10
      Padawan Specialist / Corporal 4 12
      Knight Sergeant 5 14
      Knight Exemplar First Sergeant 5 16
      Master Lieutenant 6 18
      Council / Revered Master Captain 7 18
      GM / MotO 8 18

       

      General Rolls:
      As used in combat, whether it be boss type battles or Swarm type battles.
      Note: Do not add the Roll Modifier bonus if utilizing a Force Ability, Force Form, or Saber Form (bonus does not stack). Rolling above a 20 in combat does not guarantee an auto hit. It is quite plausible for others to roll above a 20 in defense.

      Jedi Rank Military Rank Crit Fail

      GM / MotO Colonel 1-4 5-9 10-12 13-19 20+ +3

       

      Damage Dealt and Received:
      For each successful attack, a certain number of health points or HP are deducted from the player total. This typically applies to the amount of damage a player can deal to an NPC as well.

      Attack Type Damage
      Lightsaber / Blaster 2HP
      Force / Tech Ability Based on Ability
      Unarmed – Unaugmented 1HP
      Unarmed – Augmented 2HP
      Other DM Discretion

       

      Combat Form Ability Bonus by Proficiency:
      As used in combat, whether it be boss type battles or Swarm type battles. These numbers may be further augmented using one of your available Augment Abilities that your character has learned, as listed below.

      Some Combat Forms are more inherently capable during a mass combat situation. As such, some of the following forms have been highlighted in Green. While using any of these Combat Forms during a Swarm type battle, as long as you are of Intermediate proficiency or above in it, you may roll with advantage on your d20 roll instead (roll 2d20 and take the highest number rolled). This condition, like all others, may be subject to DM discretion given modifiers applied to each fight as they come.

      Note: Do not add the Roll Modifier bonus if utilizing a Force Ability, Force Form, or Combat Form (bonus does not stack). Rolling above a 20 in combat does not guarantee an auto hit. It is quite plausible for others to roll above a 20 in defense.

      Combat Form Name Beginner Intermediate Expert Master Mastery +1 Mastery +2
      SHII-CHO +1 +2 +3 +4 +5 +6
      MAKASHI +1 +1 +2 +3 +4 +5
      SORESU +1 +2 +3 +5 +6 +7
      ATARU +1 +2 +3 +5 +6 +7
      DJEM SO/SHIEN +1 / +1 +2 / +2 +3 / +3 +4 / +4 +5 / +5 +6 / +6
      NIMAN +1 +1 +2 +3 +4 +5
      JUYO +1 +2 +4 +6 +7 +8
      BAKUUNI HAND +0 +1 +2 +3 +4 +5
      FORCE AFFINTY +1 +2 +4 +5 +5 +6

       

      Force Form Ability Bonus by Proficiency:
      As used in combat, whether it be boss type battles or Swarm type battles. Unlike your Combat Forms, you may add these bonuses directly on top of any Force Ability you wish, regardless of if it’s an Augment Ability or a Standalone Ability.
      Note: Do not add the Roll Modifier bonus if utilizing a Force Ability, Force Form, or Combat Form (bonus does not stack). Rolling above a 20 in combat does not guarantee an auto hit. It is quite plausible for others to roll above a 20 in defense.

      Force Form Name Beginner Intermediate Expert Master Mastery +1 Mastery +2
      FORCE CHANNEL +0 +0 +0 +1 +1 +2
      FORCE MASTERY +0 +1 +1 +2 +2 +3
      FORCE POTENCY +0 +1 +1 +2 +2 +3

      Force Abilities

      The chart below indicates which Force Abilities have a place within the Swarm Roll System. Many of these powers are Standalone Abilities and do not stack with your Saber Form when using the Swarm Roll System. Powers that are Augment Abilities are those that are able to be used in conjunction with your Saber Form, and will be marked with a YES on the table and also highlighted in Blue. The bonuses that each type of ability get are denoted in the charts below, followed by a comprehensive list of all Force powers that have a use in our Swarm Roll System.

      Augment Ability Bonus by Level:
      When utilizing a Saber Form, you may also choose to further boost your rolls by using an Augment Ability (As listed in the Force Abilities Section) at the cost of Force or Tech points for Swarm Battles. Only Augment Abilities can be used alongside your Saber Form. If you have Mastered a Padawan, Knight, or Master level ability, you may subtract (1) from the FP/TP cost of an ability used.

      Ability Level Roll Modifier FP / TP Cost
      Initiate, Recruit +1 1
      Padawan, Enlisted +2 2
      Knight / NCO +3 3
      Master / Officer +4 4

       

      Force/Tech Ability Bonus by Level:
      Learned skills and abilities can enhance defensive or offensive rolls at the cost of Force or Tech points for Swarm Battles. These are Standalone Abilities that CANNOT be used alongside your Saber Form, and so do not get any additional bonus beyond the table below, unless you are using a Force Form. If you have Mastered a Padawan, Knight, or Master level ability, you may subtract (1) from the FP/TP cost of an ability used.
      Note: Do not add the General Roll Modifier bonus if utilizing a Force Ability, Force Form, or Saber Form. Only use the lower Ability Bonus (bonus does not stack). This chart is the only modifier you can add in Swarm situations when using a standalone Force/Tech Ability.

      Ability Level Roll Modifier FP / TP Cost
      Initiate, Recruit +2 1
      Padawan, Enlisted +4 2
      Knight / NCO +6 3
      Master / Officer +8 4

        The 5th Omega Company Swarm System

        The 5th Omega Company Swarm System is a roll system most often utilized for large scale combat situations, such as battlefields, or for situations where a few stands against many, such as a squad of troopers ambushing a large group of gangsters. While not necessarily a mechanically perfect representation of the scope of your character’s abilities, it is used to streamline large or chaotic battles where more intimate roll systems would bog down the mission and make less fun for more people. However, it is ultimately up to the Dungeon Master (DM) to determine what does and does not count as a situation where the Swarm System is applied on their missions. They may also choose to add other buffs, debuffs, or situations which may require rolls beyond these, which will be explained by the DM in the moment. General Disclaimer: All rolls are d20 based for mission actions, story rolls, or dueling. The Dungeon Master (DM) may specify rolls are needed for a specific action during the course of a mission, and rolls are typically required during combat.

        Note: Troopers will be forgoing their usual equipment and weapon modifiers in this system for simplicity at the discretion of DMs.
