Fate is an important tactical element in the Iron & Honor rule system.
Each player has a Fate Pool. The Fate Pool is equal to the total number of Fate points available to the player during a turn. Fate can be used to affect the outcome of an encounter between opposing characters or shift the momentum of an encounter. Fate is a resource that can be used offensively or defensively. When to spend Fate and when to save it can be a key to winning the battle.
Fate can be used in multiple ways, impacting the battle during different phases of the game. First, Fate can be used to impact activation rolls and resolution rolls. Second, Fate can be sacrificed to purchase a divine blessing. Finally, there are certain traits that are effected by the use of Fate, making them more effective!
