Hcobb's TFT Firepower Ratings

All page references are to The Fantasy Trip In the Labyrinth rulebook, unless noted otherwise.

A collection of my own musings, not to be taken too seriously. -HJC

Firepower Formula

A monster's firepower rating is:

10 times the square root of (Damage it does each turn times the number of turns it survives against an endless line of optimal starting human characters)

A typical starting player character has a firepower rating in the mid thirties with specialized combat builds around fifty.

My suggestion is to award XP equal to the sum of the Firepower defeated and divide this amongst the party members. Award a greater share to those party members who were more effective in the battle and reduce the total sum awarded if the party firepower greatly exceeds the firepower of the defeated foe.

I've included CR from that brand-X game, where the monster concepts agree between the two games.
