Campaign of the Month: September 2013
Step: Rank + TOU
The adept gains a last chance to save himself from dying. When the adept’s Current Damage equals or exceeds his Death Rating, he spends a Recovery Test, makes a Life Check Test, and reduces his Current Damage by the result. This may be repeated for as long as the adept has Recovery Tests available or until his Current Damage is reduced below his Death Rating. Once the adept’s Current Damage is reduced below his Death Rating, he has avoided dying. If his Current Damage is reduced below his Unconsciousness Rating, the adept also regains consciousness. Unsuccessful use of Life Check does not prevent the application of other means that prevent the adept from dying, such as applying a last chance salve (p. 265).
