Dice system Edit
Each die has a set of 6 different outcomes, depending on who/what it represents, which is indicated by a little head in the bottom right of the dice. You can hover over the dice to see the different outcomes. Each outcome represents an action the owner can perform. They may be blank which means they don't do anything.
When you press the large roll button, you roll all the dice on the board. You have a limited amount of rolls each round, indicated in the top of the screen.
Some of dice may be shaking. This means that there are possible combinations available for you to use. For example you can use one shield to get 1 defensive bonus, but you can also combine it with a hand, which gives 3 defensive bonus. This combination is called 'stable position' and prevents damage when opponents attack next round.
You don't have to put all of your dice into one combination, since you can play as many dice/combinations as you want to, in one round.
Weapons are special because they provide unique combinations with specific types of dice. If they are combined properly, they deal a fair ton of damage in return, while providing extra bonuses.
Number of Available Dice Edit
The number of available dice depends on the characters that are a member of your expedition crew, and have the ability of adding dice. Explorers will start with two dice, whereas companions start with only one die, then add another at level 3 or 4. Some upgraded characters have two basic dice, whereas others may have one upgraded die and one basic die.
Each added die is represented by a sequence of 6 images that specifically show each of the 6 faces of a die. It is shown when you hover your cursor over a character. There are two types of sequences for each color, that mechanically behave in the exact same way.The basic blue die sequence adds a blue die to the combat screen. It predicts 3 possible outcomes after a roll, with each having a 33% chance of happening.When a basic die is rolled, there is a chance that it will roll to the blank face, providing no possible action.
The upgraded blue die sequence also adds a blue die, but the blank outcome is no longer a possibility. The 2 possible outcomes each have a 50% chance of happening.
