Had a character generation session that went on quite awhile yesterday, partly because, in the process of doing the characters, I was also teaching the system. More on that elsepost.
Anyway, in the process of doing a full group conflict, a few questions came up.
“Hunter” says it can be used in fights against “animals”. If you look up “Animals” in the index, it directs you to a paragraph listing the different kinds of animals in the territories. Weasels are listed. Can you use Hunter against weasels, or should “Animals” be more simply defined as non-sapients, or “creatures who only have a Nature, and no skills”?
Same basic question: if weasels are animals, if you’re doing a Conflict with them, do you use the “Fight” or the “Fight animals” chart.
In a Fight conflict, you roll Nature to Defend or Maneuver. Defense and Maneuver, arguably, lie outside the mouse Nature – do you risk taxing Nature when you use Nature for those two types of actions?
I’m sure that I’m overthinking this, and that the answers are simply:
- Weasels are sapients, so use Fight.
But I’d like a confirmation all the same. Thanks!
