This Is The Game of Rassilon

Admit it, the Game of Rassilon has always fascinated you. The Dangers, the mystery, the ultimate prize. Now for the first time, you too can play the Game of Rassilon. Throw your favorite Doctor into the ring, add a companion to help, an old enemy to fight and see who comes out on top.

Rules:
1.) Roll a six sided die to see which Doctor will be battling in the arena. The number of the roll will correspond to the [DN] (Doctor Number, as listed for each photo in the 'Doctor' photo section below).
2.) Roll two six sided dice to see which Companion will assist the Doctor. The number of the rolls will correspond to the [CN] (Companion Number, as listed for each photo in the 'Companion' photo section below.
3.) Roll a six sided die to see which Enemy will oppose the Doctor. The number of the roll will correspond to the [EN] (Enemy Number, as listed for each photo in the 'Enemy' photo section below.
4.) Finally, roll a six sided die to see which trap will affect hinder you. The number of the roll will correspond to the [TN] (Trap Number, as listed for each photo in the 'Trap' photo section below.
5.) The Doctor will use his 'Wits', aided by his companions 'Wits' to foil the 'Plans' or 'Strength' of his enemies.
6.) Before determining the winner, roll one die for each character playing the Game of Rassilon and add it to his attribute number. Add the Doctors result to that of his companions result and compare with the enemy number. The highest number wins, tie goes to the Heroes. Keep in mind you do not roll a six sided die for the Traps, the number is simply added to the Enemies total score.
*Special Rule* - "To Lose is To Win, and He Who Win's Shall Lose".
When battling Borusa, the lowest number is the real winner.

+2 to total when battling the First Doctor (Episode version only), the Second Doctor, the Third Doctor or the Fifth Doctor.



Traps
Temporal Instability - [TN-1] / [Hindrance-2]
Whether equipment failure or not, it certainly isn't desirable for any Time Lord to be caught in one.


Tripping On A Rock - [TN-2] / [Hinderance-1]
It just wouldn't be Doctor Who without a gratuitous tripping on a rock and spraining your ankle routine.


Vertigo - [TN-3] / [Hinderance-1]

  1. So I just ran a test game and had Tegan assisting the Fourth Doctor. They battled Borusa, and Tegan suffered from Vertigo. The results were the Doctor and Tegan barely beating Borusa. However, with the special "He who wins, loses" rule, the Doctor and/or Tegan were turned into living stone statues. How did your game turn out?
