Characters' information and characteristics are represented by way of cube swimming pools. before everything of a clash, the Gamemaster and different gamers come to a decision what's at stake, verify 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 part of the clash that's valuable to his character's place within the clash. The opponent needs to reply via affirming a number of cube whose overall exceeds the complete 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 adverse end result to be made up our minds 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 should be reused to elevate within the subsequent around. The opponent now starts a around by way of affirming cube which the 1st personality needs to fit, and so forth until eventually one participant or the opposite provides. gamers may well herald new cube via "escalating" the clash, from non-physical (discussion) to actual (running away) to brawling after which to gunfighting. If the clash didn't commence with non-physical, avid gamers may perhaps de-escalate from gunfighting to dialogue, notwithstanding it happens purely not often. The GM's algorithm in clash is particularly easy: "Say definite, or roll cube. "
One of the main powerful points of the method is "Town Creation" the place the ethical panorama of the city is specified by the shape of characters, their wants, and what they've performed to one another. this offers the GM the facility to ensure that in simple terms enticing meaningfully within the city is fascinating and making wins or losses less significant to them. by means of representing the townsfolk and their pursuits, instead of offering a tactical problem, the GM is ready to pose fascinating questions of the avid gamers and provides them possibilities to pass judgement on their very own characters.
