QuoteViolet, a swordswoman of Khale, is fighting a huge wolf-bear aberration. The bear has immense amounts of Vigor, plus the Secret of Overwhelming Size, giving it a bonus die in every attack. While she has a greater skill at fighting, the bonus die is helping the animal win. Her player decides to spend a point of Instinct to dodge the creature's attack, and then a point of Vigor next action to drive her swordpoint into the beast's side. The bonus die in each action allows the player to roll an extra die, and drop the lowest die from her pool.

Quote from: gobiThe lesson here, if there is one to be had, is that if a player has suitable incentive, he can justify the use of almost any trait and have fun while doing it.
Quote from: ValamirThere's a player in one of Ron's Groups that I got to play Hero Wars with over Gen Con. He was a master of what I call "Rubber Banding"...where you take a Trait and stretch the crap out if it to get it to apply.
