Hi again!


A situation came up in our session, yesterday night: 
As written, without a Stunt, can an Athletics roll dodge a bullet in SOTC?

Thanks

Athletics can dodge a man trying to aim a gun to shoot you.  It's not a question of dodging bullets (though I'd allow it in my game -- there's nothing saying you can't); it's a question of not being where the guy's shooting.

Hello:

So, "Dodging a Guns attack" means, "getting out of the way (to cover, if it's available)".  This isn't "Wanted" or a HK Action movie... nominally -- bullets flying but the heroes are crouching, ducking behind walls, etc.

Honestly, that's a genre decision made on a case by case basis for one's own game. Not a system decision, nor a product decision. Folks can play it however they like.
