Doreen are “breath hold” divers and can stay underwater for long periods of time on just one breath of air. A doreen gains a Fatigue level after every 15 minutes he holds his breath. On reaching Incapacitation, the swimmer makes an immediate Vigor roll (and another each minute thereafter) to stay conscious. If the roll is failed the diver has drowned. Once above water, he recovers one level of Fatigue every five minutes.
Illiterates can’t read or write in any language, by the way, no matter how many they actually speak.
Many captains instill courage in their men by offering additional rewards to the first man to board an enemy vessel. Few survive to claim their prize. Through skill and luck the character has survived dozens of boarding actions and feels empowered by the adrenaline rush.
All Climbing and Throwing rolls involving ropes are made at +2. Anytime he is the first allied character to board an enemy vessel he receives a benny.
This Edge is for skilled knife-fighters such as the doreen, who pride themselves on defeating their opponents up close and personal.
Close fighters move inside most weapons’ reach, adding a bonus to his Parry equal to the enemy weapon’s Reach +1 for that particular foe. No bonus is granted if the foe is unarmed or using a knife or other small weapon.
Example: A doreen with Close Fighting battles a kehana with a cutlass (Reach 0). The doreen’s Parry is raised by +1.
