Combat Action - Topple Cover
“Topple Cover” is a half-action that allows players to change the orientation of cover, when possible. In the case of light pieces of cover (eg. wood tables) it is a simple half-action with no checks. In the case of heavy pieces of cover (eg. a bookshelf full of books) there’s a strength test involved. The difficulty of this test is determined by the weight and type of the object.
A successful test means the cover is reoriented, and the player is now behind the cover. A test passed by 3 or more degrees means the cover is reoriented, the player is behind the cover, and the player has a full action left.
A failed test means the object doesn’t reorient, but the player still has a half-action left. A test failed by 3 or more degrees means the object doesn’t move, the player has used a full action, and the player must take a Toughness test. Failing this test means the player has 1 round of fatigue.
