Focused Defense/Attack/Effort Option
« on: May 31, 2011, 10:04:20 am »

Focused Defense
Here’s something worth trying, which I’m leaning into making a Standard Rule – and we’ll be trying it out live at the Conventions this year to see how it flies :)

Normally, a Character needs to spend a Defense Action to Dodge an Attack, taking that Action from his pool of available Actions for the Round.

In This Option However:

Focused Defense Option
  • Except when Flat-Footed, Stunned, or Otherwise Hindered - Player Characters and Major NPCs can Defend (Dodge, Counter, Parry) all incoming Attacks without spending any Defense Actions.
  • Normal Rules still apply for Extras (must spend Actions to Defend as usual).
  • Player Characters and Major NPCs can now spend Defense Actions to Focus their Defense.  This is done by adding an Additional Die to the Defense roll for each Defense Action spent, rolling both, and keeping the better of the two results.  If the PC/NPC has the Evasion Edge (and spends back-to-back Defense Actions to use it) he gets two dice for every attack he rolls against.

Focused Attack
If you can have a Focused Defense Option, then you can also have the same Two-Dice Mechanic for Attacks and other Skill Use as well...

Normally, a Character spends Back-to-Back Attack Actions to Attack twice (whether through Rapid Edges or Surge Point use).

In This Option However:

Focused Attack Option
  • Player Characters and Major NPCs can spend two Attack Actions (without Rapid Edges or Surge Point use) to make a single Focused Attack using the Two-Dice Mechanic (roll two - keep the best).
  • Focused Attacks are not available to Extras.

Focused Effort
If the Two-Dice Mechanic can be used for Attacks and Defense, it can also be used for Other Rolls.

Normally, a Character can only ever roll one die for a Skill Roll.

In This Option However:

Focused Effort Luck Option
  • Spend a Luck Point for an Extra Die to roll with any one Roll
