A character's combat pool is divided between actions, both in offense and defense. This means that combat works like a kind of gambling game where players wage dice on maneuvers to bash each other's heads in or avoid having their own heads bashed in.

It is a garrison city, as well as a stopping off point for the many caravans travelling to, or from, Susrah and lands beyond.

Scene Request - The player can request a specific scene be played out. Auto Success - One non-combat action is completed successfully without rolling. Steal the Limelight - During combat, changes the order of Limelights at any time.
