A Question about the Roden

For the Roden’s L7 Feral ability, you can gain a second Instinct from a choice of three. The second two I understand fine, but I have a question about the first. “If I become Afraid, flee from danger.”

In our experience, becoming Afraid comes after the danger, as a result of a compromise or twist. I cannot see a normal circumstance where the Roden would not be running from a danger that has already been resolved (one way or another).

Am I missing something? (I usually am…)

Just means while the Roden is Afraid, it can use its Instinct to run away from a dangerous situation.

Ah. That makes a world of difference. Much thanks.
