Tactics (Strategy)
(Int x2)
This skill incorporates tactical perception and knowledge of basic tactics to guide forces in battle, from a small squad to a massive army or fleet.

Effects: When used at a small-unit level (up to two subordinates per point of your character’s POW), this skill has the following effects:

  • FUMBLE: Bad assumptions or tactical blunders put your character’s team at a distinct disadvantage (trapped on the low ground, outflanked, etc.). All combat tasks attempted by your character’s subordinates are at –25% for the first 1D4 combat rounds of the encounter.
  • FAILURE: Your character’s perception of the tactical situation is flawed, putting his or her subordinates at a slight disadvantage. Your subordinates suffer a –10% penalty to all combat tasks for the first 1D4 rounds of the fight.
  • SUCCESS: Your character makes a competent assessment of the tactical situation, and his or her subordinates engage the enemy on even terms. All combat skill checks are made without further modification.
  • CRITICAL: Your character makes a brilliant decision, placing his or her side at a decisive advantage. For the first 1D4 rounds of combat, all of his or her subordinates’ combat actions are at +25%.
