Taking stress

If you fail on a roll any additional effect is then added to your opponent’s total roll. You add any appropriate defense to your total roll. Find the difference and take that number of stress boxes.

You may take a consequence to reduce the effect as needed.  Your opponents get to declare the description of the Consequence. Every time you are in a situation that your Consequence applies roll your harm die.

Your target may choose to remove your harm die from your pool to earn a FP.

Harm Dice and Bonus Dice

Normally you will roll 2d6

If you pick up bonus dice add them to your pool, and then keep the two highest.

Harm dice are rolled as a separate pool of dice, or as a different color in the same pool. Harm dice cancel out any regular die if their rolled value is the same. (ie Roll a 2,5,6 on your regular pool, and a 4,5 on your harm pool? The 5’s cancel out, you rolled a 2,6 instead)


Spend 5xp as an Advance
