In the game, Farid prances in victory while Tash pokes the fallen ogre with a stick growing from her hand. Emma’s text appears in a voice over.
Emma: …after your “victory” in the duel, it’s time to end this session.
At the table, Farid is still celebrating. Tash looks at her character sheet.
Emma: You’ve both earned four experience points.
Tash: I’ve finally got enough points to raise an attribute. But should I raise Resolve or Composure?
Emma looks in the book.
Emma: Let’s see. It says Resolve is “the focus and determination to see your character’s will done,” and Composure is “the capacity to remain calm and unfazed in social and threatening situations.”
Tash: Those sound nearly identical.
Tash frowns at her character sheet.
Farid: And they’re both added together to make the Willpower stat.
Emma: They’re very similar, just pick one.
Tash gives Emma a mischievous look.
Tash: But should I resolve to pick Composure, or compose a reason to pick Resolve?
Emma glares at Tash.
Emma: I’m about to fail a Willpower roll and take your experience points away.
