Combat Initiative Formula

From Braindead's Mordor Site

Jump to: navigation, search

Initiative = 50 + ((MonsterDex - CharacterDex) * 5)
(minimum 5, [maximum 98?])

If random(1 to 100) < Initiative then the monsters attack first.

CharacterDex includes item stat bonuses, and refers to the currently selected character.

Thus:

If the lead monster's Dexterity is 10+ points higher than the selected character's Dexterity, the monsters will attack first 98% of the time (possibly 100% of the time).

If the selected character's Dexterity is 10+ points higher than the lead monster's Dexterity, then the party will attack first 95% of the time.
