I like to be descriptive when it comes to combat. After all, RPGs are a shared storytelling experience, right? Instead of just calling a hit, a hit, why not say “My sword slashes down its calf cutting several tendons in half” or “My healing words float in ribbons of salving weave around you”. It’s a personal preference but also a matter of having the vocabulary at hand.
The wallpaper below may help you find the words you need to make your combat just that tiny bit more descriptive.
