comment Using nWoD dice system in V20
Not all oWoD titles used the variable target numbers; several used a required number of successes instead.

comment Making a character without a soul?
There are a number of versions of the Vampire that are simply animals that look human. Such as those in Niven's Ringworld. Or the warp demons of the early editions of 40K. They don't learn, they just hunt.

comment Making a character without a soul?
@ZoeyHolman The Soul, in prior editions was tied more strongly to character level - life drains literally robbed character levels. In 5E, such life drains & soul drains are now damage to max HP, instead, so it's not the same as prior editions. Be wary of proffered "Prior Edition Knowledge" in looking at 5E, as it is often less than helpful for 5E. (As in, more often wrong than right once the dev team gets asked.)

@SevenSidedDie there's a difference between cannot perceive and cannot learn. A robot can be programmed to perform complex actions but not actually learn. There are documented cases of people who have no mid-term memory - they cannot remember you after about 5 minutes, cannot learn anything new, but they can access (but not form new) long-term memories, and can function enough to feed themselves. There are fewer, but still documented, cases of no long term memory formation, but still having mid term (5m to 5 hour range) memory working. Again, they don't learn, but do function.

Removing the damage to the quotes - I took the quotes directly from the text by cut-n-paste, do NOT edit them, as doing so makes them paraphrases.

The PBR quotes are from a document that is available at no charge, and are the bulk. Aside from the end notes, this is pretty consistent with academic fair use levels of quotation. Plus, there's not enough text to actually use the spells the text is quoted from.

comment Is there a system with hit locations where missing hits another location?
Look at Chamelion Ecclectic's The Babylon Project - it does purely dice based, as the hex-grid is printed with the character sheet. No separate hit template.

@ThalesSarczuk the correct plural in english is "geese". Gooses is a verb.
