Neverwinter OMG has no need for Pausing or To-Hit Rolls

Jack Emmert granted another interview about Cryptic's upcoming Online Multiplayer Game, Neverwinter.

Eurogamer: How are you interpreting the Dungeons & Dragons rules?

Jack Emmert: I would say we're being inspired by D&D, not slavishly trying to copy. Where possible we're trying to use the abilities and powers and monsters and some of their behaviours. But it's not going to be a one-to-one correspondence.

For instance, there's no two-hit roll. We've used boons in a slightly different manner. Hit-points aren't exactly the same. But, by and large, the structure is similar. It's not turn-based.

Eurogamer: Oh, it's action-based? Are there discernible turns - is it all based on a dice-roll system?

Jack Emmert: There are dice rolls going on, but it's not turn-based in the sense that you can pause it. You target something, you attack, you swing. The random aspect is going to be how much damage you do, and that's affected by your feats and abilities.

It's not an action-RPG, but it's also not straight D&D where you roll a die to hit.​
