New Rules[edit]

In CoDnD, characters function differently than their 3.5 counterparts. In addition to using the standard E6 rules, a character gains access to new abilities called "Perks." Normally, Perks may only be obtained by Commandos, but any character can use their bonus feats in order to gain access to these abilities. This Section will deal with Perks, New Bonus Feats, Combat, and powerful abilities called "Tactical Warfare."

Perks[edit]

Perks are basically a character's class abilities. For the Commando, at levels 1, 2, and 3, they select a perk and may ready it. A character may change their readied perks during each short rest (at least five minutes downtime). At levels 4, 5, and 6, the Commando may upgrade one of their perks to the Pro version. They still have the abilities gained by their normal perk, but gain additional abilities based upon the perk they choose to upgrade.
