Characters' statistics and qualities are represented by way of cube swimming pools. in the beginning of a clash, the Gamemaster and different avid gamers come to a decision what's at stake, be sure which swimming pools are acceptable, and people are rolled at that time. the nature with the initiative places ahead a "raise" of 2 cube, whereas narrating a component to the clash that's worthy to his character's place within the clash. The opponent needs to reply via maintaining a number of cube whose overall exceeds the whole of the cube which have been used to elevate, or "give"—i. e. lose the clash. If 3 or extra cube are wanted, the opponent suffers "fallout"—a detrimental consequence to be decided on the finish of the clash. If just one die is required by way of the opponent, the assault has been "turned opposed to the attacker" and the die might be reused to elevate within the subsequent around. The opponent now starts off a around through asserting cube which the 1st personality needs to fit, and so forth until eventually one participant or the opposite supplies. avid gamers may well herald new cube by means of "escalating" the clash, from non-physical (discussion) to actual (running away) to brawling after which to gunfighting. If the clash didn't begin with non-physical, gamers might de-escalate from gunfighting to dialogue, even though it happens merely not often. The GM's algorithm in clash is especially uncomplicated: "Say certain, or roll cube. "
One of the main powerful points of the process is "Town Creation" the place the ethical panorama of the city is specified by the shape of characters, their wishes, and what they've performed to one another. this provides the GM the facility to ensure that only attractive meaningfully within the city is attention-grabbing and making wins or losses less significant to them. by way of representing the townsfolk and their pursuits, instead of proposing a tactical problem, the GM is ready to pose fascinating questions of the gamers and provides them possibilities to pass judgement on their very own characters.
