Hostage: H00. Okay dokie. As long as it preserves life, it's okay.
Ehh, what about undead?
Haha, I was at a place where a ton of undead creatures walked about. I'm talking about liches and vampires ...hate. I think skeletons too as pets?? Ummm, I can't remember if it was undead, but also dark knights.
Oh, I just remembered Utan. What system of D&D does everyone mostly use in the rule-based games? 3e?

A visual of the D20 system, huh? Well... I'm sure Utan, seemingly the guru around here, can whip something up! Haha. I'm not quite sure how to set up a real visual of something in a post-by-post forum, but... I'll think on it. Maybe I can engineer some grand design to help you out with this, as I myself have no idea where you might look online for a visual demo.
Erm... I misread that. Haha. Generally, Kaelyn's games are really detailed in terms of dice rolling and stuff, but everybody uses a different system. Myself, I use description and all that, and then at the very end of my post, list all of what happened (Wounds suffered, spells used, etc.) in a synopsis of the post. I most often don't include die numbers, as they tend to clutter up the post, in my opinion.
I'm sure you already know, but the major difference between Rules-based and Freeform is that in Rules based, the players state what they want to do, and the DM does ALL the dice rolls.

I may not be the best one to look for for a visual, or perhaps I am both reasonings are valid based on my ADHD. My DM'ing as far as informational Dice rolling, description and such change with every update. Sure, this last batch I included dice rolls, before that, other than letting someone know what criticals were made I can't remember off hand... I prefer to use maps and heavy description instead, but in my player's scenario where they are taking on multiple entire encampments of enemies, simple information such as who attacks who and what the outcome is is helpful along with the 'flavor text' to give clarity and concise actions.
But uh, feel free to peruse my game as it was mentioned for a feel of wht I mean.
Haha. I guess I'm thinking of Nomachron, and all the battles there. Due to my mass-amount of using Atharam's abilities and attacks, as well as making massive use of that horse, my post-responses were always shot-full of dice rolls :
