I've been trying to think of a fair formula for determining a character's accuracy with a given attack in combat (melee-based, of course), and can't seem to come up with anything particularly interesting.
I have a Dexterity statistic, and an Agility statistic. A higher Dexterity level improves one's accuracy with physical attacks, and a higher Agility level improves one's chance to dodge.
As of right now I'm on this formula I've come up with:
If the attacker's Dexterity is equivalent to the receiver's Agility, the chance for a connecting hit is a solid fifty percent. For every point of Dexterity higher than the enemy's, the chance for a connecting hit increases by five percent, while the opposite is true for the enemy's Agility level - every point of Agility higher than the attacker's Dexterity reduces the chance for a connecting hit by five percent. Your accuracy can be as high as 100%, or as low as 0%, dependent, of course, on both of these stats, although I may include variables (special abilities) that will either increase or decrease accuracy, or increase/decrease dodging..
For leveling up, the character receives one Level Point. (For those not familiar with the term, it allows the player to increase an attribute's value by a single point.)
I'd like to hear some opinions from you guys, to see if this formula sounds balanced enough. If it isn't, what do you think sounds good?
I kind of want to avoid ripping off of D&D's combat system (or any other, for that matter)...
