    Just curious, how easy would it be to run Pokemon Tabletop United with CoreRPG?

    Sorry if this seems like a newbish question. But I am new so it's okay I guess. I really want to play this Pokemon tabletop united fan game and I don't see any rulesets especially for it, so how easy would it be to make CoreRPG work with it, for anyone familiar with them both?

    What are the core mechanics?
    Most games will work better with MoreCore than with CoreRPG as you have a lot more options on the character sheet, combat tracker and with dice rolling.

    In general, you can run most any game with the assistance of FG. But, the mechanics and such may not be supported without a ruleset.

    As damned said, MoreCore (a community ruleset) has more capabilities than CoreRPG (an included ruleset).

    Whether you will be happy running using either ruleset will depend (again, as Damned said) on the game mechanics, as well as your expectations for character sheet and automation.

    For instance, with CoreRPG I can setup a character sheet that is a list of groups and traits/items into two columns and put whatever values I want in there. I can even put various die rolls to these and have the value added to them. I can also just roll individually or groups of dice and then compare them to some value in my head or on the character sheet. But after that, the ruleset doesn't know what to do with it. But, you probably do

    As an example, I'm in a current game of Star Frontiers using CoreRPG. We have all our skills setup in various groups on the character sheet with a negative value and a percentile (d100) die roll attached. So if my attack chance with a laser pistol is 40%, I put a -40 in the field and when needed I roll the die. If the result (FG adds the value to the roll) is zero or less, then I hit. I then roll the appropriate damage and the GM takes the stamina off the target as appropriate.
