Faegrel Some fans appreciated the change as it made play move faster at the expense of realism. More experienced mages may learn something of the others. There are no theoretical limitations on what skills a character can learn; a priest or wizard is free to learn combat skills of any type, and a knight or soldier is free to focus on knowledge skills or stealth and thievery. For instance, Peleahn the convocation of fire and heat borders the convocations of Lyahvi the magic of light and the intangible and Jmorvi the magic of metal and craft. Permanent injuries- either in the form of amputated or otherwise lost limbs- or attribute penalties caused by poorly-healed injuries are also a possibility.

Usually nasty results for all. Dodge: Get out of the way somehow. Grapple: Try to pin your weapon. Ignore: Usually for unaware targets. Missile Defense: If you have not yet fully engaged in melee and they have a missile weapon at the ready they can fire on you as you close in.
Esoteric Defense: Again, some psionics or magic may help here. You would then modify the skill of both combatants according to whatever factors are in place terrain, injury, surprise, etc. This is the Skill Determination part. The bottom three charts give you results of the opposite skill check for melee, grapple and missile. Example: Our friend Pete is fighting 2 Garguns orcs as part of his militia duties.
The Gargun will counterstrike. Lucky Pete! Pete rolls a 34 which thanks to the attack bonus is a hit. The gargun also attacks and rolls a 23 which is also a MS. Cross checking the melee table we see the result is A2. This means that Pete will roll 2d6 to add to his spears piercing damage which is 7. The next steps are to find where Pete struck and see if the Gargun was wearing armour there. On this combat table we find: Top left: Hit locations and the hit modifiers for each.
Yes, once you hit the face or hands you get to roll again to see if maybe what you actually hit was the 3rd finger of the left hand.
Top right: An overview of armour protection ratings per damage type. Bottom: The actual injury resolution table. So, Pete having struck the Gargun in the body, he rolls to see exactly where and finds that he hit the thorax roll of Looking point column and thorax line on the table this means that the result is B1 K3. This result indicates that the Gargun starts bleeding the B for 1 point of fatigue per round and will be killed on the spot the K result unless he successfully rolls 3d6 under his END.
He rolls 9. Poor Pete. But wait, all is not lost. Since this was a kill roll, even success means that he must now roll a shock roll those are listed as E and add 1 dice to the roll. So now the Gargun has to roll 4d6 under his END or pass out. The result is The Gargun passes out, leaving only one. Go, Pete! Roll xd6 under END or pass out. Roll xd6 under END or die. If you succeed you get to roll a shock roll and add 1 more dice than the kill roll see example above.
This is the number of fatigue you take per round. Once you have reached END bleeding you pass out and continue to bleed. If you reach ENDx2 bleeding you die. Roll xd6 under AGI or fall prone. Roll xd6 under DEX or drop whatever was in that hand. You can also see at the bottom of chart 2 that you take injury points based on the colour coding. Injury points are subtracted from your skill rolls for the rest of the combat. This is a lethal system!
You might very well survive the fight only to die due to infection later on. Next up: Religion! Original SA post Various religious symbols. Going with the goal of realism of the system, intervention by the gods and powers given to their followers are intended to manifest in more subtle ways than, say, a glowing hammer appearing out of thin air and smashing an opponent in the face.

Meanwhile, questing or a serious sacrifice which for Peoni would be giving to the poor or helping the plague ridden or something both have variable i. GM fiat chances of any piety points the GM wants to give based on what is accomplished.
Advancing in the priesthood of your deity gives access to ritual invocations spells based on your ritual skills. Battlelust : The caster can make everyone in the area go berserk would only use counterstrike option in combat for a time. Overall there are about 2 dozen sample rituals provided. Again, they are meant as subtle rather than flashy.
The book states that divine intervention should never be overt i. Agrik would not respond well to pleas for mercy. This target number is different for each god. You might get help but there could be a cost to it after the fact.
