Terminator RPG Quick Start
The Terminator RPG: Quick Start is an introduction to The Terminator RPG. This game is a licenced product from STUDIOCANAL and includes content from The Terminator movie and its associated Dark Horse comics.
This Quick Start contains seven pre-made characters, all the essential rules required to play the game and a single scenario for a GM and up to five players to enjoy, with the aim of introducing a group of players to the dark, frightening and deceitful world of The Terminator.
In The Terminator RPG Quick Start, each player assumes the role of a Resistance Fighter. These ‘characters’ are the personas that will represent the players as they play the game. This document contains seven pre-made fighters for players to use which can be found at the end of the book. There are a number of elements that players should know about on their character sheets, particularly the different stats, skills and traits that each character has.
Director's Note: The Terminator Core Rulebook contains a comprehensive list of all the Skills and Traits available for all characters.
The Terminator RPG features Nightfall Games’ S5S System, first seen in SLA Industries 2nd Edition. The S5S is a d10-based rules system that uses a pool of dice: one Success die, and five Skill dice per player. The more skilled your character is in the task being attempted, the more likely you are to succeed and "succeed big."
The rules set have been tailored specifically to The Terminator RPG setting. Combat, survival, and investigation are all dealt with in the rules, along with vehicle combat, time travel, and computer hacking, allowing your character to take control of the conflict with unique skills and training. You'll need all of this and more to take the fight across the timelines and survive.
