Resistances

Resistances

A Resistance Roll is often rolled to see how a character reacts to an unexpected event.  It is usually rolled to avoid damage or some other harmful effect. The three Resistances are Reflexes, Resilience, and Resolve. They work quite similarly to Skills and they each have two Attributes associated with them. They each also have a Training Rank that can be used to improve a character’s final Resistance Rank.

Reflexes(Agility , Perception ) – A measure of a character’s ability to react to sudden events. Reflexes tests are used for avoiding area of effect events, like a cave-in, trap, or explosion. A character’s Reflexes rank is also added to their combat initiative roll.

Resilience(Endurance , Willpower ) – A measure of a character’s ability to resist physical harm. Resilience tests are used for resisting poisons, diseases, and even death. Resilience also determines how easily a character can recover their stamina and energy.

Resolve(Empathy , Willpower ) – A measure of a character’s ability to overcome stress and hardship. Resolve tests are used for assessing morale, confronting fear, and resisting mental and spiritual attacks.
