Oh my god

<<I'm still gyrating a bit about HW combat. I think the system works really well for resolving non-combat tests, but I'm not convinced about its utility for simulating combat (which is what I want, perhaps opposed to "representing"). I.e. - I don't want A-Team combats, I prefer RQ's "OHMIGOD I COULD DIE!" grittiness. I'm still trying to figure out how to get that...>>

Ah ah, I liked it, Steve.

I noticed a couple of things that might help:

I played both RQ3 and CoC. In CoC the style was "Ohmigod and demon, I _will_ die in the best instance, be driven insane in the worst"

At RQ3 it was "Ohmigod I could die, unless I perform a DI right now"

At HW it could be either way, depending on the style you choose, seriousness of combat, situations, wounds level, gore availability et cetera.

Heretic? Orthodox? Illusion? Other?
