- Also take a look at our page Initiative & XP: House Rules for v2.
Version 2's initiative rules allow characters with high initiative to dominate combat. The following change is suggested to reduce this, while still giving an advantage to those with higher initiative:
Characters go in initiative order, high to low. If a character has an initiative of 4 or more, they get a second action at half their initiative number, rounded down.
If a character is knocked down, they lose their next action.
Character A has initiative 5 Character B has initiative 3 Character C has initiative 2
The characters take their actions in the following order:
- Character A
- Character B
- Character C
- Character A (taking a second action)
