About the dice
Target Number: The Target number on each roll is defaults at a “7” unless otherwise noted.
Difficulty Rating: The Difficulty rating of such actions means that at least that many successes are required to perform that action.
|Difficulty Rating |Degree of Difficulty |
|2 |Difficult |
|3 |Challenging |
|4 |Nearly Impossible |
|5 + |Legendary |
Failure: A Failure is bad in its own right but not devastating.
Botch: When a character botches an action, somethingcatastrophic happens to said character with regards to whatever action he/she was trying to perform. A botch happens when there are no successes in a dice pool and at least on of the dice show a number “1”.
Join Battle: Anyone who wishes to battle makes a reflexive Wits + Awareness roll. The character with the most successes sets the Reaction Count, and goes on Tick 0. All othercharacters subtract their own successes from the Reaction Count, and go on that Tick. No character can go later than Tick 6.
Actions: On your tick you must choose an action. That framework is that each action has a Speed and a Defense Penalty. Speed is a tick counter - after your action, you must wait a number of ticks equal to the Speed of your action before you act again. The Defense Penalty, as itsname suggests, is a penalty applied to your defenses for taking the action. This penalty lasts until your next action.
