  • Faceless Man (Fate Quality) rules

    Good morning to all!

    I would like to ask for a clarification about the new suggested ability for Faceless Man!
    About the surprise attack!
    If I have Fighting 3 and Cunning 3 I will roll 3+3+1=7 and keep all (!) 7 results? Thank you in advance!

        Ok, thanks, I had not seen it yet !

        From what I understand, you gain Bonus Dice on your Fighting test equal to your Cunning rank, plus the usual Test Die from the surprise.

        In your example, with Fighting 3 and Cunning 3, you would roll 3D+1D+3B, effectively rolling 7 dice and keeping the 4 highest.

            Wow is this powerful, though obviously the requirements help balance it! But I don't think it's right to automatically add Cunning bonus dice, because wouldn't that really depend on the circumstances. If I kill Jaime and use that as an excuse to get close enough to Cersei to attack, then sure, I should get those dice -- but if I tried to kill Danaerys, she wouldn't trust Jaime any more than she'd (probably) trust whoever I am normally.

            I guess this is a long-winded way to say that I'd change the last sentence to, "Attacking someone who trusts 'you' automatically grants surprise, for the usual +1D; in addition, depending on the level of trust, the GM may award bonus dice up to a maximum of your Cunning."

              Also, not to derail this, but I'm kind of disappointed that Steve called it "Faceless Man" instead of just "Faceless" . . . especially considering that our favorite character with this ability is a woman.
