Heroic Action Role-Play

Contents

Dodge is the ability to stay out of harms way. Different heroes approach this differently; some use reflexes to dodge, others use insight to simply not put themselves in danger, while some are heroic enough to just shrug off attacks that would kill lesser men. In many ways, Dodge is not really a skill, it is more of a measure of your heroic potential. It is very much recommended that you raise this skill as high as possible, even if you are not a combat character. Dodge defaults to Reflexes and an outcome matching this attribute on a stunt directed against Dodge will often result in a Setback.
