Favoured Stunts : Skirmish,Uneven Ground and Grasping Root

Special Rules

Uneven Ground: The PC stumbles on uneven ground and suffers a –1 penalty (cumulative with other environmental penalties) until he moves to a different location.

Grasping Root: The PC stumbles over a grasping root and falls prone. Furthermore, he must make
a TN 9 Strength (Might) test for each item in his hands to avoid dropping it. Finding a dropped object in the water requires a TN 13 Perception (Searching)test.

Dinner: The crab grasps the stewpot in its claws, tips it over, and leaps upon it, gobbling the noxious liquid off the soft ground.

Stuck : As “Grasping Root,” above, but the PC is also stuck in place until he makes a TN 15 Strength (Might) test to wrest himself free.

Sever Claw : The PC severs one of the swamp crab’s claws, increasing the cost of the “Dinner!” stunt to 6 SP (for one missing claw) or making it impossible (for two missing claws). Upon losing its second claw, the crab must make a TN 15 Willpower (Courage) test or fall back into the dark marshes to nurse its wounds.
