Hello!
Does anyone know what dice system is used for rolls in original games (SOTHR and DO)?
As regiments stats and some other mechanics are taken from tabletop rules I presume it is supposed to be D6 system but still not 100% sure.

P.S.
sorry for necro-post

Always love discussing the engine, so yes it uses a single six sided dice. For instance, a player has to roll a five or a six for an Armour Save etc.

A short remark on Chariot game mechanics, not sure whether it was noted before.
When an enemy chariot charges into my unit, the unit sometimes (but not always) shouts "We are under fire" as if enemy archers shoot at it.
Quite likely, this is the way chariot mechanics are implemented in DO: At times, it kills up to 4-5 units a second after it enters close combat.
