  • Why make a divided attack against two foes?

    Brand new to SIFRP, and working through the Quickstart Rules before I read the full core book. One thing didn't seem to make sense, though.

    Attacking is a Lesser action. Divided Attack is a Greater one. In the example in the booklet, Gerald makes a Divided Attack against two foes. But wouldn't it always be better (even with a Fast weapon) to make two normal Attacks instead of one Divided Attack? Or is there something I'm missing?

    Welcome to the forum!
    You can only make one attack in a round. This is covered on page 163 of the rule book under "Attack".
    "You may make only one attack in a round, regardless of action it requires; to attack multiple opponents at once, use the divided attack or two-weapon attack options."

      Oh man, I completely missed that! Okay, disregard my question -- and thanks.
