Fortitude Ability

Post  Admin on Fri Feb 12, 2010 6:11 pm

Where the Stamina Attribute reflects a person’s innate endurance, Fortitude represents training and experience in deliberately hardening the body to resist physical punishment. Different people have different reasons for hardening their bodies to suffering, whether they are marathon runners, professional athletes, soldiers or monks. Some simply learn Fortitude the hard way, having been brought up in hostile environments such as the desert or the Arctic Circle.

Characters use Fortitude when they have to keep going in the face of pain, fatigue, sickness or intoxication.

Trait Effects: A character with Fortitude 1 is reasonably tough. She can drink all night, go to work the next morning and function reasonably well with a pounding hangover. A character with Fortitude 3 is hard as nails. She can go for days without sleep or shrug off debilitating illness or painful injuries that would send lesser mortals to the hospital. A character wit Fortitude 5 is a machine. She can keep going on nothing but willpower and spite long after everyone else around her is dead.
