[CID] Mechanics

JennaFowlerKickingDoor

The Basic Mechanics of CID: Coppers In Disguise are little changed from the History Farce games that preceded them.

Well that’s not quite true: CID introduces a new concept to the very simple 1d6 roll off system that was devised way back in the Winter of 2011 and became a key part of the Whore’s Blade Wargames System.

CID is the first game where spending one of the two Virtues or Resource points allows you to re-roll dice rolls involving an associated statistic.

Ego: Represents a Copper’s determination to get shit done regardless of the outcome. It is tied to the Bad Cop Statistics of Instinct, Sleaze and Violence.

Discipline: Represents a Copper’s discretion and ability to keep a clear head and stick to the rules. It is tied to the Good Cop Statistics of Brains, Humanity and Grit.

Clichés can refuel these Virtues as can the Super as a reward for good play. Save up enough Virtues and you can attempt to learn new tricks and get new gear as described in Experience and Equipment.
