Concentration

Concentration is a pool of points that represent the amount of energy or attention a character has within the context of a conflict. In a straight forward fight the points represent the amount of effort the character has to shrug off a nasty blow to the shield or dodge a sword at the last second. A skilled swordsman would be able to deflect blows without much effort. Concentration points represent the times that they need to exert themselves more than is usual. Because of this when a weapon is threatening to pierce your characters defenses the damage it does is called Distraction (Dis).

Concentration is derived from the Focus Trait. Multiply the Aptitude by the Strength to determine the total Concentration.

A Focus of 4d6 would give you 24 Concentration while a focus of 3d10 would give 30.
