Defend & Maneuver

When you defend and maneuver, you’re protecting yourself or others, focusing on the environment and advantages you can build or disadvantages you can inflict. You change your position, maybe try to escape, maybe get to higher ground. You’re not attacking directly, but you do your best to block enemy blows. Thisapproach isn’t as aggressive as advance and attack, but it isn’t as standoffish as evade and observe. It’s a solid, resistant, tactical approach.


Advance & Attack

When you advance and attack, you move into direct battle with your foes, sticking to them aggressively, sending countless blows their way. This is a very aggressive approach, not standing back and letting your foe come to you but instead coming at them, hard. You might also expend energy attacking the environment to reshape it to your advantage in some way, but it’s still framed by aggression, advancement, forward-motion—you don’t carefully change the terrain, you break it with force!


Evade & Observe

When you evade and observe, you keep your distance, not running away from your foe but avoiding letting them get close enough to really land any major hits. You dance and dodge, avoiding more than blocking, trying to take in a better sense of your foe and your environment. Instead of intensely focusing on your enemies, you observe the situation and possibly formulate a better strategy.
Note that when you choose evade and observe as your approach, you immediately clear 1-fatigue. If you don’t have any fatigue marked, you don’t get this benefit. This represents how you fundamentally take a step back, calm yourself a bit, and refocus every time you choose this approach.



Mark 1-fatigue to ready yourself or your environment, assigning or clearing a fictionally appropriate status of nearby characters or yourself.
