If you roll body for speed does it take one or two actions to attack with accuracy? From the description it sounds like the answer is "one" because they're all physical. Can I get confirmation? - Robert

Confirmed, "one". If you roll a Physical stat (i.e. Body) for speed, all your Physical actions take one action.

Weapon attacks tend to be accuracy based. Would grappling, bull rushing, or similar unarmed attacks be strength based? Would they need schticks, or just skills, and if skills which? - Robert

Without any shticks, you would grab with Accuracy (dodged by Dexterity), and hold with Strength. A bull rush sounds like "grab with Accuracy and make a Strength roll to push around" to start with.

A shtick would let you make a grab attack with Strength instead; having a more interesting effect for "bull rush" would also be a shtick.

Grab is a 2-point skill. --Boojum 10:26, 19 February 2009 (EST)

Is Brawling (3-point) a superset of Grab for this purpose? If so, what does brawling add? --Ringrose 14:11, 19 February 2009 (EST)

Yeah, Brawling is in the style of bar-fighting and probably includes most uses of the 2-point Grab skill. Also basic punching, throwing chairs, etc. --Mjperson 16:36, 19 February 2009 (EST)

Can I yell "Don't shoot!" or "Watch out for the chickens!" for my diceless action? I know that persuasive/buffy types might have these as diced actions. --Heidi

You can pretty much always talk for free during your action (well, no filibusters...). If you're making a persuasion roll or doing something that requires dice, it does take your diced action. --Boojum 09:44, 23 February 2009 (EST)
