Well, I joined the site some time go to get help starting my own d&d group and got some fabulous hep. Sadly I fear I must call upon for aid once more.
My friends and I wish to create our own game, we have a basic idea of the style, setting and classes. But actually coming up with a combat system that is not just a copy/paste of D&D seems to allude us. Along with how stats, weapons and armor would come into play.
We want combat to be fun and easy to get into but not so simple we get bored or combat ends quickly. Sort of stuck at this point and not sure what resources could be found to aid us.
