Severe Injuries

The GM may choose to assign an Injury if one is particularly appropriate. If not, when a character accepts an injury, they consult the appropriate table. Roll two D6s that are different enough to identify one as a “1st die” and one as a “2nd die” to determine what injury the character receives.

Severe Injuries are permanent.

1. Aim
