Orc Kin Talent - Unbreakable

Sun 02 Dec 2018, 10:44

Can the Orcs Kin talent - Unbreakable be activated if the character is broken by a fear attack? Or can it only be used if broken by damage to strength?

The more I think about it the more i favour it being useful for both normal and fear damage.

Correct :)

"when you are broken by any kind of damage (see page 107), you can spend Willpower Points to immediately get back on your feet".

That's what I settled on, thanks.

Another big question that appeared to my group as I have an orc into it...

When the orc spend WP to avoid being broken.
He SHOULD have been broken...
Then, if it Strength or Intellect that should have been broken...
Does the orc suffer a critical injury?

It's quite important.
If yes, it doesn't make sense with the Unbreakable idea: you live, but in what state... reduced in many ways, maybe still unable to move.
If no, then it makes he orc pretty powerful. Since he can avoid it from 2 to 3 times in a fight (in my experience).

For now I stated the NO answer, for I consider that it's not magic healing.
It's a talent.Then it refers to the character ability.
In addition, it is activated with will power. Then inner strength and intention.
So I stated that an orc uses his WP to gain more combattivity during the fight, and It allows him to avoid the strike, and take a shot of adrenaline.
It hardly explain that the talent can remove more damages than the last strikes, but it's enough to me.

What do you think?

It hasn’t happened in play at my table, as I have no Orc PCs, but the rules say  
When you are Broken by any kind of damage (see page 107), you can spend Willpower Points to immediately get back on your feet. For every point you spend, you recover 1 point of the Broken attribute. You cannot use this talent unless you are Broken. The talent does not affect critical injuries.
So, the Orc IS broken and takes the crit, before spending WP to get back on their feet. An injury that prevents them getting on their feet is not negated by the talent.

Ooops. My bad!
I have read this almost three times, and I didn't see it.
Next time I promise, I'll open my eyes before reading XD

Then, it's fair enough.
thank you!

But obviously you don't get a critical from pushing yourself, as my player forgot last week.

Yes, which means that an Orc player should feel free to push their rolls when other characters would not.

Absolutely, my player noticed it immediately! He became a serial pusher ! XD
but pushing doesn't mean WP. And WP means damages. It's quite subtle to manage, I love it actually!
