Combat is a Body Skill that represents training in physical fighting and specialized battle techniques. Combat can represent formal schooling in unarmed martial arts, weapons training, or simply very good street fighting and brawling.

  • Pushing
  • Tripping
  • Grappling

Out of battle Combat Checks can be made, usually as Opposed Checks when:

  • Grabbing for the same item as someone else
  • Pushing someone without intending to seriously hurt them
