  • Damage the foe as normal attack
  • Bite Attack (2 agg, no penalty to attack roll) (p 213)
  • Hold them in place

If the grappled wins contest they can move next round.

Sniping - Resolve + Firearms
Beyond effective range = -2 dice penalty

Dexterity + Athletics

Sample actions

Pass turn - place last in initiative order
Surprise attack (Dex + Stealth (diff 1) vs. Wits + Awareness)
Ranged one-sided attack vs Dex + Ath
Two sided firearms = Dex+Fir vs Dex+Fir
Dodging (in brawl or melee) Dex+Ath instead of combat skill.
//~ Note: //
Multiple opponents - lose one die from pool when defending against each successive opponent.


Damage - extra weapon damage is added to the total damage after roll.
