Quote from: Frank T on October 02, 2005, 09:58:41 AMThere is a climbing contest. You need 10 successes on Strength to reach the top, but if, in one roll, you don't get at least two successes, you fall. The damage you take depends on how far you were up already. You are outnumbered and choose to run. Roll Stamina against those in pursuit. You are 2 successes in advance. If one of them makes good those two successes on one of you, he catches up. If you increase it to 5 successes, you lose them.You are running at the enemy, he is running at you, both shouting, with weapons raised. Who gains Initiative? Let's roll Virility to check who's got the bigger guts.You are dodging across the open courtyard. You need 5 Agility successes to get to the archway. Each roll you must make means that the Shuarian archers can take a shot at you.You can try and coast down the glacier on your shield if you like, but it requires two sucesses, and if you fail, you'll fall into a crevasse and break a leg (a deep wound in rules terms). If you make it, though, you'll catch up on your enemy before he reaches the bottom.
