Surprise!

posted Nov 02, 2015 20:39:08 by ike2k
Just had a thought as I was preparing an adventure today and I checked through the rules briefly and couldn't find what I was looking for sort of...

A surprise round, it's a common thing in most games I have played for setting up ambushes and general guerilla warfare kind of tactics, I could find no mention of it in the rules. All I could find was the part about the characters always going first in combat, but this is what I was concerned about. Generally an ambush is set up outside of combat to attack an enemy before they have a chance to react. Currently the only way I can see this as being possible is by spending a bucket load of dark symmetry points. Is this an oversight? Or is that how it's done?

Any thoughts?

I think it is listed under the Stealth skill?

I think that a surprise attack allows the surprising side to act out an entire combat round without the opposite side getting a chance to act. Generally, this comes as the result of an opposite Stealth vs. Observation roll.

Just read through stealth and observation neither mentioned attacking from a hiding place. I am very tired though so I may be being blind.
