I know, I‘ m late to the party, but I want to try the Conan Rpg and I‘ m struggling with two Combat questions. I didn‘ t find answers here or in YouTube, so if I missed them: mes culpa;
- You attack with the melee skill, which is Agility + Melee Ex = TN.
- You can choose to defend with the Parry skill, which is Coordination + Parry = TN. Costs one doom and it becomes a struggle between the PC and the NPC.
So far, I get it. Now my 2 questions:
1st - In the example in the Corebook page 131 it is written, that: the Child of Set attacks Athala. Athala decides to defend.
Why ist the struggle between the „Coordination + Combat Field“ of the the Child of Set and the Parry TN of Athala? Shouldn‘t it been between the „Agility + Combat“ of the Child of Set (because it is attacking) and the Parry TN of Athala?
2nd - The Encounters in the Corebook don‘t have Melee/Parry. They habe Combat instead. Do I get it right, that they Attack (in Melee) with „Agility + Combat“ and defend with „Coordination + Combat“
(I know the question is connected to my first question.)
Thanks a lot for the help!
