contested rolls

Postby Shingetsu » Wed Jun 29, 2016 3:17 pm

Can I use the rules for "Contest of Wills" for other contests too?
Like Strength vs. Strength (arm wrestling)

the rules sometimes mention such contest, but they are not
explained in the rules, except in "Contest of Wills"

You can, in fact, use that mechanic if you like. Arm wrestling would generally just be an Opposed Test, p.30, but the Contest of Wills mechanic would allow for an extended conflict, which could make for better drama and storytelling.
