Under the Meditation skill listing, there are obstacles listed for meditating instead of sleeping, and a description of “centering.”
You may “center” before taking a test for another skill. This is a linked skill test. When centering for a versus test or detailed conflict, make a versus test between the Meditation skill and the opponent’s skill. If Meditation wins, the character earns a +1D advantage.
Two questions. Which of the opponent’s skills are we testing against? Whichever skill will be used in the main versus test? I love the idea of Meditation vs Meditation for two swordmasters before they close to the real fight, but I feel that’s not what the rules intend - nor is it appropriate to most situations.
Second, what is the obstacle for centering when it’s not a versus test? If he centers himself before trying to climb a sheer cliff, for example, how do I set the obstacle? Is it the same obstacle as for the primary test?
