Hack and Slash

When you attack an enemy in melee, roll+STR.

✴On a 10+, you deal your damage to the enemy and avoid their attack. At your option, you may choose to do +1d6 damage but expose yourself to the enemy’s attack.

✴On a 7–9, you deal your damage to the enemy and the enemy makes an attack against you.


This is generally your go to for hitting something. In some cases, you don’t make this move at all: if you sneak up on a monster and bash it in the head, you’ll probably either deal your damage or kill it outright.

Conversely, a monster might not be affected by your attack. Trying to punch a blob? Not gonna happen. Ditto for trying to take on a dragon with a chair or broken bottle: either will just shatter against it’s scales.
