Attack Damage Weapon Dr + Strength


Rank TN Increase Explanation
Healthy 0 This is the default condition of any character who has not suffered damage.
Nicked +3 A character who has been nicked has suffered a mild but distracting injury.
Grazed +5 A grazed character is injured, but still able to function without tremendous difficulty.
Hurt +10 A character who is hurt has begun to suffer noticeably from the effects of his injuries.
Injured +15 An injured character has difficulty focusing his attention on the task at hand.
CRIPPLED +20 A crippled character can barely stand, much less move. Any attempt to make a Move action is increased by one level of difficulty (a Free Action becomes Simple, etc.)
Down +40 A character who is Down is virtually incapacitated. They may speak only in a whisper. Such a character may only potentially take Free Actions, unless a particular wound makes such action impossible (and cannot take Move actions), and must spend a Void Point in order to be able to do so.
Out No Rolling A character who has been reduced to this level is immobile, unconscious, and likely dying. Once this Rank is filled, any additional damage inflicted to the character kills him instantly
