Target Numbers

Main Page

A Target Number is a measure of the difficulty of any given task, as determined by the Game Master. A task that should be easy will be assigned a low TN, whereas a difficult task will have a higher TN. While the TN difficulty is ultimately up to the GM, a general idea of how difficult a given task might be is as follows:

  • TN None – Mundane – Getting out of bed/Remembering details of your sword
  • TN 5 – Very Easy : Striking an immobile target/Recognizing an old friend
  • TN 10 – Easy : Carrying half your weight/ Finding a misplaced item
  • TN 15 – Average : Lifting your weight/Remembering someone you’ve seen once
  • TN 20 – Moderate : Jumping a tenfoot ditch/Recognizing someone in disguise
  • TN 25 – Difficult : Scaling a cliff without rope/Finding a wellhidden object
  • TN 30 – Very Hard : Diving safely from a waterfall/Remembering someone’s exact words
  • TN 40 – Heroic : Out-wrestling a troll/Naming all of your ancestors… in order
  • TN 60 – Impossible : Shattering stone with bare hands/Outwitting a Fortune
