Re: (TFT) one thing to do another...
I think you invoked me...
It's been years since I actually played Fokker Fodder but I believe it
would give you a very good mechanism for multi-player aerial manoeuvres.
I have not read any Harry Potter so had to check Wikipedia for the rules
>From what I recall, Brooms are still subject to momentum and gravity,
they have to move forward to move up, down or change direction.
They might be able to levitate slowly, but they don't just slide
sideways or backwards without some kind of stall manoeuvre.
The Wiki article stated that different makes of broom were faster or
more stable, etc.
That ties in with the aircraft attributes from FF.
You could rate brooms for maximum level speed, turn ability and
climb/dive rate or acceleration.
Combat/Damage results in FF directly affected an aircraft's performance
rather than chipping off Hit points.
For Quidditch a brooms performance should also be modified by the skills
of it's pilot.
I would be tempted to go for a Caw Wars based skill system here rather
than TuFTy talents...
Flight; Used for modifying manoeuvre checks...
Throw; Used for launching flying ball thingies at the right
Catch; Used for intercepting or recovering flying ball thingies...
Dodge; Used for avoiding flying ball thingies or other flyers...
Physique; Reaction to hits from FBT's, etc.
There's room for opposed rolls for resolving interaction between flyers.
I might be inclined to leave the Seekers and golden snitch out of it
completely, other wise what's the point of scoring goals if whoever
grabs the snitch wins anyway ?
That was the impression I got from the films.
How about that for starters ?
